I'm just starting to get in to sludge/stoner/doom metal. Can anyone recommend me anything?

I know:
Electric Wizard, Down, Crowbar, COC, Bongzilla, Kyuss, Fudge Tunnel, Acid Bath, Eyehategod.

I'm starting to become a huge fan, but I don't really know of any more bands.

rec thread, more people will be able to give you good recs there. Along the doom front, are you okay with funeral doom? cause if so i have some good ones. look into: Catacombs, Bosque, Wormphlegm and Ahab for starters. as for sludge your list is about as comprehensive as mine, so i can't be much help there.

get them. now. for more traditional doom, also get: trouble, saint vitus, katatonia, pentagram and, for ridiculously epic doom, get scald.

These are all great. But I'm not too sure what exactly funeral doom is :S. How is it different from regular doom?

Om and High on Fire.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

it's much slower, the vocals are death growls, songs are generally longer and its heavier. if you're new to it try Ahab and Thergothon first.
