21 St. Vitus

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!

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"

35 Saturnus Saturnus Saturnus is a band from Denmark formed in 1991 playing melodic death/doom metal, with touches of gothic metal.

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'.

These guys pulled me into 'Doom'!
