doom metal
 
hi again.

i always listened to death/black/trash metal mainly but this morning, a friend of mine gave me a "old" (1999) November's Doom album (Of Sculptured Ivy And Stone Flowers) which he said it's Doom Metal. and i actually like it.

so, point of this post: to ask for any good, above average Doom Metal bands so i can get into this style.

thanks.

Probably one of the most popular doom bands today is My Dying Bride. I really like them.

I find November's Doom to be boring, but I've only heard a few songs.

Ten Ton Alien 2004-03-14 20:03

My Dying Bride... i've heard that name before but the person who mentioned them told they were black metal.

i shall download a couple of songs to check them out.

November's Doom is great. Doom in general is awesome. I don't like My Dying Bride at all though.

Doom bands to check out:
October Tide
Novermber's Doom
Evoken
Cephalic Carnage - Halls of Amenti (This 19 minute song is the epitome of doom. I strongly recomend it)
Saturnus

I need to be depressed to listen to it. But Eyehategod is always good for some dirty sludge ridden doom.

Dyldo 2004-03-14 21:06

Evoken is probably the most depressing out of all.

Mourning Beloveth

hahahaha, black metal....that's a good one!!

The Portugese DESIRE is awesome especially their newest album!

Also check out FORSAKEN (they call themselves doom but their newest album is too fast and not heavy enough for me to be doom), PANTHEIST, THEE PLAGUE OF GENTLEMEN. :D

Nobody has mentioned Cathedral yet.

Also, what about High On Fire? I reckon they're a stoner band but I've heard people describe them as doom.

Nihilist 2004-03-15 07:18

Rune are good.

Ten Ton Alien 2004-03-15 11:41

question: can Paradise Lost be considered Doom?

the first albums of course.

to the one who mentioned Portuguese bands:

i'm portuguese and i must say that our metal isn't all that great. Ramp used to be good, The Temple vanished, Genocide have been dormant...

oh well, at least Moospell achieved sucess worldwide.

Yes, Paradise Lost is pretty standard doom up to the album "One Second". Even on their newest album, they still have a doom influence, but generally, are more like a goth rock band. They are really good with all their albums.

Dyldo 2004-03-15 22:22

Oh yeah, can't forget Amorphis.

BestialWarrior 2004-03-15 23:39

What about Darkside?

:vampire:
