Best Doom Metal Bands

The Top TenXW

1Katatonia

Please listen "inheritance" from katatonia!

The Great Cold Distance, Night is the New Day, & Dead End Kings are amongst the best of the genre.

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.

They haven't put out one bad album. - dragonzrmetal

2Candlemass

Just listen to solidarity. thank me later

Katatonia isn't metal! Candlemass are GODS of doom

Why oh why are they not #1. They are the definition of old school metal. Epicus Doomicus Metalicus is considered the pinnacle of epic doom metal - ryanrimmel

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. - d4rk92

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. - djh101

Draconian is the only band which force you to cry, specially 'Death Coming near' song

The gods of doom/death metal

4Black Sabbath

The first doom metal band and the first metal band in history definitely deserves to be at the top of the list.

Best metal band of any sub group or future group.

No doubt they're god of doom metal

5Type O Negative

October Rust, Bloody Kisses. Arguments are now invalid.

6Swallow the Sun

The music "Cathedral Walls" ft. Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) just explains why this is one of the best Doom Metal Bands in the world.

7Melvins

Come on these guys influenced all of the heavy New Orleans bands like Crowbar. Not to mention they influenced Nirvana's Bleach, heaviest punk album. I have no idea why Crowbar isn't on this list because they should be second to Sabbath.

8Electric Wizard

It baffles me that these guys aren't top 10 at least. go listen to "Funeralopolis", damn it!

9Pentagram

They not only pioneered doom metal, but metal in general. Alongside Black Sabbath, they are considered the early pioneers and sometimes founders of Metal - ryanrimmel

10Theatre of Tragedy

VERY BEST IN STILL AND MUCH FEELINGS IN THEIR MUSIC

The Contenders

11My Dying Bride

Number 1, and nothing else they just remind the genre and can't stand the place 16 - Rhapsody

One of Great Trinity of Doom Metal.

12Danzig
13Acid King
14Virgin Black
15Ghost B.C.

Ghost should be first! - ImagineACoolUsernameHere

16Dark Sanctuary
17Sleep

Does no one know or appreciate Sleep on this site? They are by far one of the best stoner rock/metal bands ever and one of the best doom bands! There is no way they shouldn't be in the top 5 - ryanrimmel

18Uaral

Listen To Lament Song If You Want To Know Uaral Band - RaminLp

Come on 20? Really? I guess you know nothing about DOOM if UARAL is on 20th rate

Simply the pain and sadness, they are great

I love this band
