23 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'.

24 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.
25 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.

26 Dark Sanctuary Dark Sanctuary
27 Trouble

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"

28 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.
29 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!

31 Forest of Shadows

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

32 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.

33 Acrimony
34 October Tide
35 Skepticism

Really atmospheric and a real badass band

36 Shape of Despair Shape of Despair
37 Anathema

Serenades and The Silent Enigma are brilliant.

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?!

How are they not on here? They're the original of the Peaceville three!

38 Cathedral Cathedral Cathedral were a doom metal band from Coventry, England. The group gained attention upon release of its debut album, Forest of Equilibrium, which is considered a classic of the genre.

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.
