Best doom metal band
Nightfall, best doom metal album of all time
There is no denying what Black Sabbath did for metal, but Candlemass just sounds so good it's absolutely irresistable.V 11 Comments
Gods with our Sabbath there would be no doom metal
The first doom metal band and the first metal band in history definitely deserves to be at the top of the list.
Of course. But surprised to see Opeth no where in the list
Black Sabbath basically made doom metal just listen to the song Black Sabbath.V 10 Comments
I wouldn't classify their newer material (after Brave Murder Day/ Sounds of Decay) as doom metal, but they remain a great band to this day. Their doom material alone isn't my favorite, but it definitely packs a punch. - AngryByrd
Please listen "inheritance" from katatonia!
They're more of a Gothic metal band, their first two albums were the only ones that included doom. - Metalmaniakkk
The Great Cold Distance, Night is the New Day, & Dead End Kings are amongst the best of the genre.V 5 Comments
Second only to Sabbath in doom.
The definition of underground. Most people either don't know them, or worship them. Probably the heaviest Doom Metal band of all time, they're extremely unique and interesting. Definitely deserves a higher spot than 6.
This is a trip, hypnotic
This should be in the first 3V 6 Comments
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.
If there's one band who can do a bloody miserable, evil, slow, heavy as song, it's my dying bride.
That's what doom is, right? So why aren't they fighting with Candlemass and katatonia for nr1?
Sure best Doom band foreverV 3 Comments
"I have heard off and on of this band. But, I have recently taken the time to listen to at least one of their songs. 'No Lonlier Star' and I am SHOCKED! No, seriously! I mean I have honestly NEVER heard anything like it before in my life ever, and that's simply the honest truth about it! I could go on and on about them based on this song alone, but I'll keep this short and sweet. They RULE! And rightfully have earned a place of honor in my playlist for sure! "
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 best Doom Metal band of all time. Every song they create is a piece of art!
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. - djh101V 8 Comments
Where as original doom metal pioneers like paradise and katatonia were only grasping the potential of the genre in regards to capturing human emotion, Swallow the Sun Perfected it making some of the most emotional music ever in any genre, Plague of Butterflies is perhaps the most beautiful I've ever heard
The music "Cathedral Walls" ft. Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) just explains why this is one of the best Doom Metal Bands in the world.
Just listen to "10 Silver Bullets" and "Rooms & Shadows" from "Songs From The North I" Album and you well know "Swallow the Sun" is God of Doom/Death Metal
Listen to "Don't Fall Asleep (Horror Part II).V 5 Comments
The song Love You To Death alone beats everything Ghost has and ever will do ever.
October Rust, Bloody Kisses. Arguments are now invalid.
Just listen to angel song... U will in love with this band
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
It's sucks that a band like ghost can be above a true Metal band. - Rambles
True pionners. Great band, not like Ghayst
Why so low?
What are they doing down here? Paradise Lost invented both death-doom and gothic doom!
Guys, what, they the originators of everything we know about Doom Metal nowadays, especially gothic doom
I agree, with Dying Bride this band should be in the first place!V 4 Comments
Ghost is in my opinion the best modern metal band. They have extreme satanic lyrics, but not the cliche Black Metal "Rawraghraw hail satan" kind. They have deep, dark, lyrics that literally make you feel like you are present at a Satanic ritual. Papa Emeritus has an incredible voice, great melodies from the instrumentalists, and they are good enough that Dave Grohl himself jumped on board. He produced Ghost's EP "If You Have Ghost" and performed studio drums. A Nameless Ghoul from Ghost basically said that Dave Grohl sometimes drums for Ghost in live performances. Ghost is one of those bands where I can honestly say that there is no song that I dislike. Even their worst song sounds good! - ryanrimmel
Idiots, they're hard rock. Cheesy ass hard rock. Literally no doom elements whatsoever.
Dark and deep sound that Will give you goosebumps by their awesome sound.
Ghost shouldn't even be here, there not metal let alone doom metal, there a good rock band but not metal... if you think Ghost is the best modern metal band then I feel extremely sorry for youV 3 Comments
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
Matt Pike may have not invented Doom, but by god he wrote the book on how to do it right!
"Dopesmoker" is the epitome of stoner doom (at least for me...)
Go listen to Through Silver In Blood and Times of Grace. If everyone who reads this does so, these guys will be at least number 10. - AngryByrd
Come on they should be in at least top 5, simply they have made beautiful music, go checkout woods 5
I'm surprised that this band doesn't have more votes. Go listen to The Green Album and try to tell me it's not one of the most beautiful albums you've heard
Woods 5 is a flawless album! - Spineapple
Green Album is absolutely perfect. Check out Dirty Window of Opportunity. Very Type O Neg-ish, just better.
VERY BEST IN STILL AND MUCH FEELINGS IN THEIR MUSIC
One of the best doom metal band they should be higher on the list
Surprised I didn't see them on here. They're one of doom metal's early pioneers.
Saint Vitus is the very definition of doom.they should be much higher on the list.
"I know I don't belong,
and there's nothing I can do
I was born too late
And I'll never be like you"
You can't be more doom than this!
Les meilleurs bastards
Top 10 here!
30? Come on man! "Heaven on My Mind,"" Born in a Prison," "Run to the Light," "Memory's Garden","At the End of My Daze"
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
The best music I have ever heardV 18 Comments
Great modern metal band! Drawing a ton of influence from the greats, like type o negative and sabath.
Great classic Doom band! - Oliwally
One of the best songs in history has been released by this fantastic band which is "our wings are burning" this group also has another albums that every doom/gothic metel fan should listen.
This band is superb! If like Moby Dick and Doom metal this is the band. - InsanityJoe
The slowest band in existence
Anathema aren't only doom metal, they're beautifully designed doom metal. I mean, they're newest album The Optimist has more of a modernish sad rock style to it, but still one of my favourite records form them. Bands like Pallbearer and Reverend Bizarre will always be my favourite doom metal, but Anathema have won my heart over to them. I mean that literally...
Serenades and The Silent Enigma are brilliant.
Anathema is one of the greatest band ever.
All albums before 1998 brilliants - pruvetV 2 Comments
Underrated band, should be higher
Draconian, Tiamat, Paradise lost, Katatonia are not doom metal. Bands. BS, pentagram, cathedral... They are doom metal bands. Listen to them and compere them.
Most of the bands on thisnlist are gothic metal, not doom. Listen to Forest Of Equilibrium, it's about as true as doom metal gets
For the beganer's I'll suggest a song"Ashes you leave". You are gonna love them. I bet.
The best doom & ambiental black band that existed on earth.
Listen to "For Your Demons", it is one of the most emotional songs I have ever heard.
If You don't know saturnus you better kill yourself, check Veronika Decides To Die Album, inspired from Paulo Coelho's Novel
Saturnus created such top-class death-doom music I have ever listened to. Check out 'I Long,', 'Lost My Way', 'Call of the Raven', 'Descending'.V 1 Comment
Very good death/doom band! - Jph
Should be way higher.
Monotony Fields is definitely the best doom metal album I've ever heard.
BEST of the BESTTT
Come on this band is unique love the voice of Niclas Frohagen and theire last album Six Waves of Woe and the song Detached that is om my top 10 song this band is just what I need. - Mansonlooks
