Stoner/Sludge/Doom
« on: Jul 17, 2008, 02:08 PM »
I already started a metal thread but there wasn't much discussion of doom and its variations so we can recommend and discuss the strange and plodding behemoth that is doom in this thread.

Current Favorites:  Khanate (drone/doom), Bongzilla (stoner doom), Catacombs (funeral doom)

I like Doomgaze a lot. It's something like drone+doom

Favs are The Angelic Process, early Jesu, Vanessa Van Basten and some others

Never was into pure  doom. Too metal for me.

Lol as a result of listening to Sunn O)))?  Drone is such a hit or miss genre but there are some amazing groups out there.  Try Black Boned Angel.

It's funny that you say that since I don't like doomgaze considering it isn't metal enough.  I heard Nadja and thought it was just shoegaze until someone mentioned it was called doomgaze and that made me laugh.  Differents strokes.  I do like Jesu if I'm in the mood though.

Bongzilla is fucking cool.


Definitely check out Sleep. I'll upload some when I get home.

Yeah, I just recently got into Bongzilla and I'm hooked for sure.  Have heard a few Sleep tracks and liked them.  Earth is also pretty damn good.

i like some sunn o))), earth, fear falls burning, nadja and - of course - jesu.

if you like ambient-electronic-drone you NEED to check out Harmony In Ultraviolet

i am also into alot of sludge/doom metal. there is so much atmospherical-doom metal stuff out there these days, i keep discovering new bands every day :D

Everyone should be required to hear Dopesmoker by Sleep at least once.  That album is simply mind-blowing.  If you blast it on a decent soundsystem with the right mix it essentially will blow your head right off.  Plus some of the lyrics are ridiculous enough to make you laugh out loud.

when i first listened to "barthory erzsebet" of sunn o))) 's black one i felt fear for the first time ever when listening to music.

i would also say that i never had such a strong emotion (may it be excitement, gladness etc.) to any kind of music.


i listened to it at 3 at night with my headphones on in the dark. i refused to get out of my bed afterwarts for 10 minutes or so.

Some of that drone is ridiculously overwhelming but that's what makes it great.  That's why I enjoy some of the funeral doom as well.  Try Catacombs cranked up full blast and tell me it isn't creepy.

Electric Wizard..........Minsk

Just downloaded albums by each bands, "Witchcult Today" and "Out Of A Center Which Is Neither Dead Nor Alive", respectively.

Though I've known Electric Wizard longer, I've never actually listened to them but first glimpses seem promising.

A review I read about that Minsk's album seemed promising too: "There is nothing happy about this band. There is no light at the end of the tunnel. There is no hope, no glimmer of better things to come or brighter tomorrows, only the crass, cold reality of the void that is here and now."  :)
Sludge/doom/neurosis-kind stuff.

Also downloaded "Lost To The Living" by a doom/death band called Daylight Dies. Sounds ok.

yes, its ambient-style drone. i think there are a few guys of kayo dot in this band, but there is not much information.

you can listen to their album online on their site

Just bought the Relapse Contamination Festival DVD.  Has live performances by Daylight Dies, Bongzilla, Neurosis, Alabama Thunderpussy and Mastodon.  Good shit. 

melvins ftw!

Melvins always have a special place in my top lists.

Electric Wizard is badass and you can't go wrong with any of their albums.  A bit unfamiliar with Minsk (have heard but do not own) but enjoy Daylight Dies a bit. 

Anybody like Bloody Panda?
