Mourners Lament (death/doom metal with male grunts and melodic riffs, pure Anathema worship)
https://youtu.be/mR9jCiVCGyU

The Slow Death (somewhere between funeral doom and death/doom with male grunts and female cleans)
https://youtu.be/07cWKsuROVk

Evictus (melodic doom with female cleans, similar riffing style)
https://youtu.be/27SVC1JOTLM

Thy Sinister Bloom (atmospheric/psychedelic doom with epic male cleans, very similar dreamy, ethereal atmosphere as TSE)
https://youtu.be/5WTEQ29MpLk


Thanks for all of those! :)

This is what you're looking for.

And if any of you decide you want some very obscure epic/heavy doom metal.

I'm very new to the doom scene, but I'm looking for something depressing and forlorn such as Turn Loose the Swans. Any help?

I always felt Antimatter "Leaving Eden" album and "Planetary Confinement" are both quite depressing.

It's not exactly the same stylistically but listen to Thergothon's only full-length. It has forlornness and despair aplenty. Thing is you might want to expand your knowledge by hearing several different bands playing variations of the so called "extreme doom" and after that you will learn from experience what kind of style suits your personal taste the best. After that recommending more similar bands to you becomes easier for us.

Welcome to doom metal, the realm of everything depressing and forlorn!

If you haven't yet, listen to all MDB discography. Some mediocre songs now and then, some whimpy, some cheesy stuff, but all in all, a very noble merchant of doom.

If you're looking for something with melodies, check out Morgion/ Solinari and Mourning Beloveth/ The Sullen Sulcus

Thanks, I loved Crystal Darkness! Unfortunately I couldn't find it on Soulseek... :(

Soulseek is still around? Had no idea, thought it had died off years ago. I wonder if DC++ is still being used by people.

Any "d-list" // weird sludge recommendations? I know most of the, uh, big names? in it. I'm looking for stuff like the following:

Nightstick (Weymouth, Mass)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwfkSy8CNVg


3D House of Beef (Seattle, other places)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SmxIVJGOtg

Both have profiles on here, but I've been awake all night, so just look that shit up if you want.

I hope that you all enjoy these few bands that I discovered; a majority of these bands are rather traditional doom metal, with the exception of a couple who intertwine various musical elements, and metal sub-genres, e.g. death metal, punk, et cetera.

1. The Sabbathian is a traditional doom metal band containing musicians from North Carolina, and the vocalist being from Norway. The band has only one EP released thus far, titled, Ritual Rites, which is a well-composed, albeit brief, output of traditional doom metal, adorned with compelling guitar riffs, and a mesmerizing vocal performance by Anette Uvaas Gulbrandsen. Ritual Rites can be sampled on their Bandcamp web-page.

2. Alastor is traditional doom metal band from Sweden with two EPs released thus far: Black Magic, and Blood on Satan's Claw. Alastor is identified as "psychedelic doom metal" on their Metal Archives profile web-page, however, the band sounds akin to a traditional doom metal band, 'ala Saint Vitus, but with a 1970s-inspired occult vibe; predominantly heard through the song's composition structures, and more-so through the band's vocal performance. You can sample Alastor's two EPs on their Bandcamp web-page.

3. I absolutely love this band; Wizard Union is a predominantly doom metal band from Michigan that intertwines gritty punk, and (more recently) death metal influences in their rather unique approach towards composing doom metal. They have three EPs released so far: Smoking Coffins, Phantom Fury, and Ceremonial Smoke, with each release sounding slightly different from one another. Smoking Coffins is very much in the traditional doom metal vein, with a hefty amount of Electric Wizard, and Black Sabbath inspirations. Conversely, Phantom Fury is heavily crust-inspired, with the musicianship sounding a bit more aggressive, and up-tempo, i.e. redolent of Saint Vitus' more faster tempo songs. Lastly, Ceremonial Smoke returns slightly to the stylistic influences heard throughout Smoking Coffins, except with death metal-inspired growls sung, and the guitar riffs sounding slightly more down-tuned, and abrasive. Wizard Union's material can be sampled on their Bandcamp web-page.

4. Battle Hag is a death metal-inspired doom metal band from Sacramento, California, having released one demo tape, and a full-length album titled, Tongue of the Earth. Each guitar riff sounds absolutely monolithic in conjunction with the percussion heard throughout the latter release. Augmenting the band's ominous, "ritualistic" musicianship, Battle Hag employs a deep, and guttural vocal style that sounds reminiscent of Thergothon, and Mournful Congregation. Each song stands on its own throughout their full-length album, creating a memorable listen. Battle Hag's material can be sampled here.

I am trying to remeber a stoner rock/doom band from some place in Europe.
Romania, sloavkia, slovenia
Something like that, and it had one word in the name.

Listened to this years ago, and I remember I loved it but now I can't remember the name :/


EDIT: Yay, I managed to track down the band!

I'ts called: Umor

Finally listened to Smoulder. They do actually rule! Warrioresque female vocals and sledgehammer riffing.

Hey everybody.

I'm trying to find more bands similar to Cough, Windband, The Funeral Orchestra, Boris, Coffinworm , and Black Tomb in terms of guitar tone and pacing. I want the thickest fuzz sound possible but I'm not seeking out ultra slow funeral doom/pure drone stuff.

Thanks
