Doom metal
« on: January 16, 2020, 02:20:52 PM »
I couldn't find any specific doom metal thread, so I thought I'd make one.  Mainly because I checked this new song out from My Dying Bride.   I've seen the name before but never heard any of their music.  Anyway a new album coming out and this song is absolutely brilliant.  Great variation between the vocals and nice strings too.

Another unknown Doom band I discovered are called Crypt Sermon.  Their 2019 release was excellent.  Here's a song from it.

Sorcerer's last album "The Crowning of the Fire King." Avatarium's newest album "The Fire I Long For."

Not even a doom metal fan myself (well, from all I've heard) but those two records - holy sheet!

Doom metal overlaps a bit with some occult / retro bands for which I made a thread some time ago.

Candlemass basically invented the modern conception of that genre, and Avatarium were born as a side project of Candlemass' bassist and leader. If you don't know them, absolutely check their debut album and especially the song Moonhorse.

If you want some STRONG Sabbath vibes, check also Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, the song Death's Door should give an idea of their sound.

If you like Avatarium and the retro sound of Uncle Acid, you might want as well to check Blood Ceremony, the bastard child of Jethro Thull and Black Sabbath, even though we might be floating here towards more the hard rock side of things than the plodding and menacing pace of doom metal.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Brent sent me that Sorcerer in my roulette and that album too is freaking amazing.  They are quite similar to the Crypt Sermon.

I should check Avatarium.  I don't think I've ever heard anything from them.

Yeah I know I heard a song from them from you as it was one of your top albums I think for the year, but I don't remember a thing about it haha.

The Sorcerer though gets spins from me, that's a killer album.

I just listened to the Crypt Sermon again too.  I really like these guys.

I have had Crypt Sermon sitting around for months and months unlistened to - like truckloads of others.  I am reasonably up to date with sampling/tracking down the best albums - just can't find the time to listen to full albums.

It's well worth a listen mate.

I'm not a big doom fan, but a band that I really like is Solitude Aeturnus. I'm not sure if they're together anymore, but I discovered them in the early 90's. My favorite albums from them are Alone and Before the Crimson Horizon.

On a side note, I read somewhere that the singer spent a few years in Candlemass, but I'm not sure if he recorded with them or not.
All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again

That name was familiar so had a look and Rob Lowe is that singer.  He sung on 3 albums with Candlemass.

Shape Of Despair - super heavy, slow atmospheric doom, who had the former Amorphis vocalist (Pasi) onboard for a couple of albums.

Saint Vitus - Saint Vitus; Born Too Late
Solitude Aeturnus - Into the Depths of Sorrow; Beyond the Crimson Horizon
Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend
Cathedral - Forest of Equilibrium
Solstice - New Dark Age

Blessed Black Wings is a brilliant album.
