Hey guys, so I am not really familiar with Doom Metal and gave the recommendation thread a peek and I have been checking out some of the suggested bands, but I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around why this deserves a distinct sub-genre. It seems to be taking many elements from heavy metal and adding a pinch of death metal and just slowing the tempo way down. If anything I would just call it really Really REALLY heavy metal.

Can someone add any insight into this? I like the sound but I am also a classification freak and love to understand the history and music behind all sorts of different genres.

I think it mostly was differentiated because of its dark lyrics and atmosphere. I'm no expert though so wtf do I know?
