    Didn't pay attention to this style of music, until I recently heard this album. It's monstruous. Which is your favorite Doom Metal band/album?.

    I like the genre, especially Sleep and SunnO)).
    Earth's The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull is highly recommended.
    Dopesmoker's a great record.

    I'll check them out. Sleep's mastrrpiece requires full attention.

    I'm hoping some real doom-metalheads will chime in with some obscure sludge.

    Hard to know where that genre ends and stoner rock begins. I used to listen to a ton of that stuff, a lot of it instrumental.







    Boris qualifies I guess, although they are all over the place. That Japanese chick has about the most perfectly filthy guitar tone I've ever heard. They did some collaboration stuff with Sunn that is not at all what you'd expect.

    This one is on the more extreme side of Doom, but I love it.

    Yep, if Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward would have been 20 in 2000, this would be their sound at that point in time.

    Well, lots of different "labels", but it's still rock 'n' roll to me.

    Can't say enough about these guys. Love the juxtaposition of the Beatlesesque vocals over Sabbathy downtuning. Great retro feel to their videos and even recorded an album in analog just because. They're probably half way between doom and desert rock.

    Saw them open for King Diamond a few years ago. Great band.

    If you like nautical themes mixed with your doom, I can't recommend Ahab enough...

    I don't know if this is your cup of tea, but these two cult bands combine doom with black metal

    Reminds me of this for some reason. Different genre for sure, but ends up in a similar cacophonous wall of drone.
