Can someone explain to me what Doom Metal is? What I think it is, is a slow, sludgy form of metal. Am I right?

Candlemass
Krux
Pentagram
Reverend Bizarre
Saint Vitus
Solitude Aeturnus
Thunderstorm
Trouble
Witchfinder General

\m/ those are my favs.

Finding traditional doom metal sucks though because there 1 million of those annoying funeral doom bands.
I've seen a couple of vids of Sun o))) and while there costumes were sweet they were fairly boring. What are their albums like? are they all similar? I'm just not sure how you can mix it up when you play drone doom.

This band owns, check it out !!

The hyperlink is to the official metal rec thread for which lots of people have worked really hard on (hard on the thread, not hard on as in "my penis gets big").

love doom metal.
katatonia's early albums are my top favorites.

Most discussions about doom fill me with despair. Someone's going to start talking about My Dying Bride next, I just know it....

Whats more annoying is that the hordes of crappy funeral 'doom' bands get all the attention and praise, here and otherwise, where the true originators, with the exception of maybe Candlemass, and the bands that pay homage to them are sadly overlooked.

Drone Metal.


Lol.

Shame that drone has nothing to do with metal whatsoever.

Anyway, best doom band is Monolithe.

^joined to your Epicus Doomicus Metallicus group, DeathBySpoon

Reverend Bizarre, Cathedral, Candlemass, Grand Magus, Sahg, Electric Wizard and such are amazing!

arguable.

I'm quite happy to give that title to say, Reverend Bizarre or Esoteric without much second thought

With Esoteric, I find that there are a lot of moods within their music that don't just focus on depression. Every time I listen to them, the songs take me on a journey that's quite different to the normal despair and depression of a lot of other FD bands

That doom list needs to be re organized. Putting Witchfinder General with bands like Sun 0))) and Skepticism seems a bit dumb to me as they are completely different.

I love them. I have the Sinamorata DVD.

I have a lot of Katatonia CDs and Sunn 0)))'s Black One. That's the only Doom I own.

I want to get into Funeral Doom alot more.

I also joined the group.

/shrug I don't have a problem with them, save for an occasional rubbish album, but my guess:

a) personal taste

b) the fact that a lot of people overlook the traditional doom bands [in favour of doom-death eg. MDB] which are essential for full understanding of the genre, not to mention that that's where the genre started.

Personal vendetta. Once people accept they aren't doom, I'll leave them alone.

Doomsword are good enough they can be put anywhere they damn well please.

Anyhow.
I'm still waiting on my copy of the final Reverend Bizarre album, after a month to the day and being told my orders have been canceled about three times for reasons best known to the clowns at Spinefarm.

And incidentally the only one of the 'Pissville three' that were any good. Their early albums are the only stuff from that style that I can stand. They actually had decent, heavy riffing, while MDB had a redundant violin player and a load of crap vocals...

So I was in my (not so) Local CD shop the other day browsing through some CD's & I was pretty tempted to grab Candlemass' Nightfall "special re-mastered" edition. Should I grab that?? I currently have Epicicus & King of the Grey Isles & I really like the songs/vids I've heard with Messiah.

Also while I was there I seen Electric Wizard's Dopethrone ( that title is gold) & it "rang a bell" as far as it being recommended, and my question is, how would yous describe the style of it??

Dopethrone = MEGA heavy, fuzzy, tripped out sludgey doom. One of the best albums of this decade, easily.

As for the Candlemass album, go for it. All of there early stuff is gold.

Canlemass are too slow. Messiah sing like an orthodox priest. We have many of them here in Greece. Can't listen to them

I like the mixing of Doom and Heavy. Does anybody know ''Trouble''?

I still think that Sleep's Dopesmoker is the greatest doom album released. EVAR.
