does anyone else find that whenever they mention doom/drone music, it is passed off as 'not real music.'

most of the people i know tend to think it's "just playing the lowest note for an hour" and that "a dishwasher has just as much talent."

why can't they appreciate it, or at least respect it?

There's a bunch of Sunn O))) fans here.

I don't listen to it, but I've never seen any metal fans dismiss it.
#3
Most people I know here like/respect it.

I'm a fan of some drone and funeral doom.

With the rather notable exeption of Earth, drone is terrible.

c'mon man, doom is your specialty. Maybe not drone but doom.
#11
The threadstarter was talking about it as though drone is a kind of doom, which is preposterous.
And to pick up on another point the TS made, yes, I would much rather listen to the various sounds that my dishwasher makes than listen to Sunn, or whoever, as my dishwasher does not try to come up with some bullcrap artistic justification.

Sunn O))) is ****ing horrible.
#13
i'm going to be honest here: i have never found a genre that bored me as much as Drone.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Well, I there's a fine line between good drone/doom and just the lowest E string held for 20 minutes. Generally SunnO))) is bearable, but I prefer Wormphlegm. This kind of music is different for me I think, as it's more ambient and not really something you sit down and listen to.

What are they?, MA says they're funeral drone/doom metal but it goes a little beyond just a genre name.

That is very true.
The fact still remains I think they are shite, and that the bands they inspired are also shite.

METAL is shunned a lot. Of course Drone will be.

Also, SunnO)) kicks ass. So does Earth.

I like early doom, but I don't listen to a lot of doom bands. I don't listen to drone at all, or like it from what I've heard.


Most of my friends don't listen to any kind of metal, and the ones that do listen to thrash, power, traditional, prog and metalcore, so I've obviously never heard anyone even mention doom or drone, let alone badmouth it.

ya, i guess its that its a sub genre of metal, so it'll be shunned even more so than metal.
