The Top Ten

1
Katatonia
Please listen "inheritance" from katatonia!
Katatonia is legendary, pretty much everything they have ever released is quality. laugh out loud I don't know who put Draconian on here, phaha.
Listen to "My Twin"

2Black Sabbath
The first doom metal band and the first metal band in history definitely deserves to be at the top of the list.
Wow black sabbath? In a doom metal list?! Who the hell put BS in here?!
Well... Not contrary to popular belief, Black Sabbath's earlier work consisted of a slower, darker sound which is why they are consider by most to be the inspiration for doom metal. Where as some have gone as far as to label them one of, if not the, first doom metal band (which would explain why they have 10% of the vote).

3Draconian
Definitely Draconian
One of the greatest doom metal bands EVER!
I've been listening to doom metal music for so many years now and I've never seen a band like them, they're the best in the business.
If you wanna try them just listen to "Death, Come Near Me" from the album "Arcane Rain Fell", the saddest 15:22 minutes of your life, do not listen to the Demo version of this song.
You'll love this band!
I'm sure.

The Solitude. It Grieves My Heart. I think that says enough. Where Lovers Mourn, I would say, is one of the greatest doom metal albums of all time.
