Yeah, that's about it. The vocals take a bit to get used to but when they do it clicks and there are plenty of good riffs to revel upon. ;)

Help im a doom noob. Can anyone recommend me some epic, folky doom? Like the saddest, most epic melodic and melancholic doom around. Acoustic parts and clean passages are a plus. But heaviness is also good. Thanks!

Try Solstice, While Heaven Wept, Procession, Scald and The Flight of Sleipnir to get started.

I'm looking for doom acts such as Catacombs - In the depths of r'lyeh. It has this really eerie and mysterious vibe to it which i find spectacular.

Wormphlegm and Tyranny are obvious choices for your typical "scary as hell" funeral doom. ;)

Statement: Reverend Bizarre rules. Anyone wants to join me and circle jerk? Now listening to The Festival and it's totally noticeable that this is a Kimi Kärki song. Wouldn't feel out of place on Signs of Osiris.

I'll join your circle jerk, dude. It's probably my favorite band of all time. Hellblazer will join too, so it's gonna be epic!!!!

Signs of Osiris was the best doom album of 2011 for me, Kimi was quite underrated, he's as talented as Albert Witchfinder, The Puritan kinda suck, sadly.

Second best according to me. I am also very fond of Dennis Cornelius so Memory Driven's Animus did sway me more than Lord Vicar. However, I will say that LV finally came into their own in 2011. Many of the songs on Fear No Pain did go on for too long, for no apparent reason. Not so on Signs of Osiris. Still, nothing can beat what the chaps did in Reverend Bizarre. I really can't find any real fault in any song they did. Call me a fanboy, I don't care! The band is my favorite band ever. I hope I will see them live again some day. Some of my best concert memories are from Revbiz gigs. Love these guys!

Also I do fucking love The Puritan. Also Opium Warlords. Sami Hynninen has a vision and I agree with it most of the time (if not all the time).

I have Lithium Gates on cd, might check it out again, it didn't click at first. Only heard Memory Driven's name, I guess I should check it out.

Also :tongue: I want to see Revbiz so fucking bad. It's one of my biggest sadness in life, along with Cathedral (missed them in MDF :( )

Yeah. The Puritan takes time. It was so for me. At first I just wanted them to sound like Reverend Bizarre, but that wasn't meant to be. In time the greatness (purely subjective, of course) of the music did occur to me. Sami Albert Hyninnen is a great songwriter regardless of the band his in. And he has a certain style to him, a style you notice when you pay attention more carefully. I mean, a few of the songs on Live in Colonia Dignidad (Opium Warlords) are similar to what he did in Reverend Bizarre, for example.

Also meh, I saw Cathedral playing live supporting Candlemass once. Wasn't all that great. Dorrian knows how to put on a good show though. Then again, I'm not a big fan of Cathedral's music.

I'm a big fan of Cathedral's stuff and their last show gonna be/or were in Australia. I guess they're not popular here, a shame.

BTW, would you be my last.fm buddy????

edit: Memory Driven is very good, perfect mix of prog metal and doom, reminds me of While Heaven Wept at some places.

Memory Driven has the Cornelius flair. If you're into Revelation's album Yet So Far album or Oversoul or Dwell Within. Yeah, he has a certain style to him as well, I guess. That's why I'm a fan. Identity is very important in doom metal. Many can recycle Iommi riffs but playing doom with a unique character is what matters in the end.

Sure, we can be last.fm buddies.

Albums similar to Matador by zoroaster?
Slow melodic chanting is a plus...

I am looking for consistent stoner (drone doom) that focuses purely on "clean" sections. Like the quiet Kyuss sections, later Earth (especially bees made honey..),certain moments of Isis or some Ahab. There are many more examples but hopefully you'll get what i mean.
Psychedelich and overwhelming is only a plus, speed is not important but melody is. Album recommendations are prefferable.

Aelter - Dusk Dawn /Follow You Beloved

How is this album? Can`t find them on EM, but RYM says the both of them are a bargain for 16 euros.. Not even sure the album should be mentioned in this thread, but it is my closest bet.

I guffawed heartily at this, Metantoine. Well played, sir.

If anyone can provide recs of instrumental or lyrically sparse fuzzed out, lo-fi doom in the vein of St. Vitus's debut and/or similar sounding albums, it would be appreciated.

Hello all stoner freaks =)

Can someone recommend me bands like Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children of the Knight ?
I dont know exactly their style (psychedelic "groovy" stoner i think...) but i love their 3 LP's.
I've research something to approach that without results...

Thx =)

Looking for for raw, heavy doom/death or very slow death metal. Think of something similiar to Anathema and Paradise Lost's demo's...just better produced would be great. Vocals must be deep and the music in general shouldn't be too melodic.

This has probably been recommended already but Pilgrim's 2012 album Misery Wizard is really awesome!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2tIWEDG4lo
And I really like the black/doom metal band Isolation from germany
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUpliTUsL6s

How about some futuristic Doom either with sci-fi related lyrics or a futuristic sound kinda like Atreus http://www.archive.org/details/AtreusUndertheGreyFirmament but more Metal and less noise, or some Nautical Doom like Ahab or The Wounded Kings' album The Shadow Over Atlantis, something that makes you feel like you're sinking down into the abyss of the ocean.

Early Saint Vitus is awesome. I'm suprised there hasn't been talk of the new one they've got coming out. I've got some pretty high expectations for it.

Why is Reverend Bizarre so popular? I have So Long Suckers, and it seems like a lot of 20 and 30 minute songs that don't do a whole lot except repeat the same notes over and over. I'm not big into doom, so I know, I probably chose the worst album out there for my first non- Sabbath doom album.

Well, that's their weakest album by far. But to answer your question, they have huge riffs and epic vocals. They operate on the "if a riff is good, more of it is best" logic.

I started a thread about that album the day I got it. Metantoine said that it was one of his favorite albums of all time. I don't see it. I like doom, if it's catchy and has drive behind it.

It's probably just not for you, it happens. It took me a while to get into them because of the sheer repetition. I like them quite a bit now but I don't put them on super often.

Try their debut if you want to know what Reverend Bizarre is about, but they're not my favorite doom band either.

To each his own, I guess. I like long songs a lot. So Long Suckers is really not the album to start with the band anyway. Their 2 others are more immediate. You might want to check Lord Vicar though, the new project from Rev Biz's guitarist.

Edit: Don't tell me that Anywhere Out of this World is not catchy!

Once it finally gets going, at least :P

That and Caesar Forever are the two tracks on that album that were immediate standouts. I still need to listen to that one more myself and not write it off as much.

I'll echo how that's probably the worst one to start with and will second the debut, In The Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend.

For people who are fans of more traditional doom with some stoner influence. Check out Scattered Earth. They broke up but have both of theirs demos streaming on their Facebook page.

here's a recommendation :

Mindrot - one of the most underated bands from the 90's post-doom/death scene...amazing apocalyptic gothic crushing doom/death/sludge.......like fields of nephilim colliding with obituary ...all three releases highly recommended

my request : anything like QOTSA circa Rated R or debut ?
