Really? 38th? Listen to the turn of the tides and then consider what is DOOM

48 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.

49 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.

52 Agalloch Agalloch

Maybe not typically Doom, but if I can vote for Agalloch, I will.. Great musicianship.. Every album has to grow. After it grew on you, there's no turning back, eargasm all the way! Ashes to the grain is a sublime start. The Mantle and The Serpent and the Sphere are epic too!

Should be at least top10 in my opinion!

Possibly the best band of all time...
