Sabbath, Pentagram, Electric Wizard, Sleep...
Let's talk DOOM!
oooo Electric Wizard rules. here's my favs
Diesto (real slow, real stonery, real obscure Portland band)
Zebulon Pike (instrumental psych!)
Earthless (more instrumental psych! ZP is better tho)
Monarch! (the slowest music ever created without being drone)
Black Elk (more verging on noise rock but amazing as fuck)
I like Earthless. Not real doom-y, but good.
Drop... out of life... with bong.... in.....hand
Follow...the smoke... towards the... riff.... filled... land
Hope to catch Pentagram live this year! Their really awesome, talk about pioneers right
I love these bands shows. Catched them all except Sleep unfortunately. Thought they broke up?
Earthless isn't doom at all indeed, but if they're in your neighbourhood be sure to go see 'em. Saw them twice and they blew my mind both times :biggrin:
Here's something for some real fans:
Blood Ceremony s/t
Who else thinks that "Witchcult Today" was a work of genius?
Monarch, Sunn O)), Boris } Noisy, droning, experimental doom
Burning Witch } raw, grunge doom
Erg Noor, Tears of Mankind } Melodic doom
Quasar } Soul-crushing Funeral doom
Kauan } Ive never heard metal like this before- soo relaxing and dreamy, lots of soft, gentle keyboard melodies ^cant stop listening to them lol.
I'm generally only into old school doom like Pentagram, Candlemass, Reverend Bizarre and Witchfynder general etc. Also dig bands like Cathedral and stoner doom like Sleep, Acid King and Spirit Caravan. The drone stuff is only cool live in my experience, but gets kind of boring. Just like the shoegaze drone/doom crossovers.
Drone is pretty cool for just chillin' and smoking weed or whatever, definitely not that good for active listening.
Psh, once cannot talk about doom metal without mentioning My Dying Bride.. fuckin awesome stuff.
My Dying Bride is like 5% doom.
I like trad stuff.
Ahab anyone? Perhaps some dISEMBOWELMENT?
Love dISEMBOWELMENT. What about Skepticism, Winter, Candlemass and Thergothon?
Or how about doom-death like Infester, Divine Eve, Obituary, Asphyx and Incantation?
I could never get into Thergothon because I can't find anything by them. Winter, Incantation, and Obituary are all fucking badass though.
