Van Der Graaf Generator is as dark as you can get it, especially Pawn Hearts, and King Crimson, but you already know them i suppose.

Yes i like Peter Hammil but the sound is a bit obsolete....If u can find a modern band that sound like Van Der Graaf with a much modern approach i'll appreciate. I love electronic toms..like Ozric Tentacles but less psychedelic and more dark

Try The 3rd & The Mortal's first two albums or Project Bluebook, or Rada & Ternovnik's My Love, My Sorrow.  Or for something a little older maybe Dead Can Dance.

Maybe Discipline or Matthew Parmenter solo. (based on other people's posts).

 
After listening to this song, I get a very strong Saga vibe.

The Red Masque for a modern take on VdGG style music.

And for someone looking for 80's style electronic toms I dont think you're in a position to talk about "obsolete" sound.Wink

I appreciate ur recomend but the bands are too complex for me. Maybe Matthew Parmenter is close to my taste.
The music should be Eletronic and Dark... a mix of Industrial or EBM Depeche Mode or Absurd Minds but much complex that meet progressive rock

Maybe you should like Diagonal's self-titled album... I haven't listened to it for a long time, but I remember that it was absolutely dark!

Saga - Wind Him Up Smile
 
I don't know much prog with synth drums, but there are pop and darkwave related stuff...
 
I like Openhearted by Real Life (dark romantic synth pop). Great drums.
 
Subsequent Pleasures by Clan of Xymox  is a dark album featuring Roland TR808. One of my top 10 favourite albums..Another later song by them with nice synth drums is Jasmine & Rose, a bit inspired by Sisters of Mercy/The Mission : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyWeGsA2Iqk

How Transatlantic's Kaleidoscope beat IQ's The Road Of Bones in the Prog album of the year category at this years Prog awards (2014) is beyond me.

Real life...is too much synthpop, but Clan ox Xymox is almost perfect....almost because it isn't progressive; i'd like the drum more complex...like 7/8.

A band that use drum machine is Aragon....and some of tracks are very dark and dramatic...

No electronic drums but "Blind Owl" reminded me of this (instrumental) one



Dark w/ electronic drums

DEPECHE MODE are freakin' unbelievable. Amazing group. I grew up listening to the masters of synth and dark, ominous tones. So great. Great recommendation
