I hope I don't get ripped apart for posting such a generic thread, but I've been browsing the recent posts in the Metal Forum, and it doesn't seem like doom metal gets much love here.

So discuss...

My favorite bands are Sunn O))), diSEMBOWELMENT, Wormphlegm, Earth, Draconian, and some stoner doom bands like high on fire and sleep

haha speaking of generic your name has dirge in it, which im sorry to break it to you, but is probably the most overused word in doom metal. you could tell you like doom metal immediately from your username, and "awaits the silent empire" confirms it further. i dont know if those are from anything, they are just dirge-y/mournful/solemn/and other doomy things

i too like diSEMBOWELMENT and wormphlegm, but i really only like funeral doom, i dont like drone or stoner or other variants etc.

add shape of despair, comatose vigil, and catacombs for my list

Eh, I find doom metal in general isnt very popular, everyone seems to enjoy blistering fast music usually. I love doom though.
Draconian
Wormphlegm
Swallow The Sun
November's Doom
High On Fire
Down
Kyuss
All FTW

It's strange, I never thought I'd do it, but I'm getting more and more into Doom. I never really found it very attractive at first, but it's kind of grown on me...

Bleh, I wouldn't have said any of the bands mentioned were doom in my book but there you go.
Anyone with any interest in the current Doom Metal scene needs to listen to Reverend Bizarre, The Gates of Slumber, and Warning.

Down is the shit. Phil Anselmo can kick all of your asses.


Yeah...too bad Down is actually the exact opposite of doom metal.

i like the stuff like Shape of Despair, and iv'e heard of Kyuss but after a while of listening to all of the doom and funeral stuff it just gets depressing, i don't really know how to explain it. Basically, i can't handle if for long periods of time
#19
I love Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. And Ahab. And Woods of Ypres. And some Cathedral here and there.
I've found Jesus
#20
My fav. is Ahab, Call of the Wretched Sea was the first album that actually made me give a sh1t about the genre in the first place.
#22
Man, Doom is teh greatest. Novembers Doom, WINTER!,CandleMass and My Dying Bride FTW!!!
#23
I heard that Justin Greaves is out of Electric Wizard, does anyone else know anything about this?

Woah, I haven't heard that.

I'm into a bit of Doom - Cathedral, Candlemass, Electric Wizard, Bongzilla, Sleep, High on Fire, Witchcraft, Witchfinder Genneral, Novembers Doom, My Dying Bride, Katatonia, October Tide blah blah blah
#25
Aaah, I forgot My Dying Bride!

Who's listened to Daylight Dies here? F*ucking wonderful songs.
#26
Yeah, I listen to some Doom. Very good stuff, but I'll have to check out more. I'd say my favorite from that genre so far is Novembers Doom or Katatonia.
#30
Quote by masterofmuppets
lol Katatonia are emo now eh? If so it's the best emo I've have ever heard in my life.


Agreed.
#31
"Katatonia" is ratehr a misnomer these days, as the band sounds more like "Katatoolia". Seems every band wants to be like Maynard and Co., I just don't see the appeal.

Stoner doom sucks.

Funeral doom > you.

I find it ironic that what is refered to as Stoner Doom often has absolutely zilch to do with Stoner music. I once saw Reverend Bizarre being called Stoner, ugh.

Not that I have anything against Stoner Metal or Stoner Rock, far from it in fact, but it should never be mixed up with Doom Metal.

I think post rock complements doom very, very well.

hahahahaha you used the word dirge for your sig, as the word dirge seems more appropriate for funeral tools, in the sense of being a device to be used, not the band tool. seems like every funeral doom fan wants to throw the word dirge around, i just dont see the appeal

the word dirge sucks

requiem > dirge

I wouldn't really consider newer Katatonia releases as doom though. Only their older stuff like Dance of December Souls and Brave Murder Day


Yeah I know, but seeing they are accepted as a Doom band in Metal music even with 2 Doom albums, I don't see any harm done. *shrugs*

and Mike, I like their new stuff, even if you call it Emo lol.
#39
Draconian
Sunn O)))
Monuments to sorrow
I have probably forgotten a few bands, but yeah, I like som doom once in a while.

Also Senthil (spelling?)
</IMO>
