25 Anathema

Serenades and The Silent Enigma are brilliant.

Anathema is one of the greatest band ever.

All albums before 1998 brilliants - pruvet

Uhm... Yeah, let's just throw one of the pioneering and leading (death) doom metal bands behind bands that aren't even considered doom metal! WHY NOT?!

27 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'.

28 Woods of Ypres

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

Green Album is absolutely perfect. Check out Dirty Window of Opportunity. Very Type O Neg-ish, just better.

29 Crowbar Crowbar Crowbar is an American sludge metal band from New Orleans, Louisiana, characterized by their extremely slow, low-keyed, heavy and brooding songs that also contain fast hardcore punk passages.
30 Dark Sanctuary Dark Sanctuary

32 Shape of Despair Shape of Despair
33 Evoken Evoken Evoken is an American funeral doom metal band from Lyndhurst, New Jersey, that is influenced by the Australian band Disembowelment and the Finnish band Thergothon.

35 Tiamat

Sweden has never really been a spawning pool for many great doom metal bands, but Tiamat makes every metal fan's time worthwhile, (mostly) irrelevant of taste. Never getting truly dull in any way. There is an overall esoteric approach to the music, citing the use of psychadaelic drugs on various occasions. The guitar work is at times a distorted mass that saws through your speakers at while being perfectly crystal clear in other certain parts. While that alone being very gloomy, the vocal duties from Johan Edlund add to the overall haunting and great atmosphere.

The best band this world has seen till now.

37 Novembers Doom
