The Top Ten
Just because it came first doesn't necessarily mean it's the best. - Metalhead1997
You don't have to scream, or play riffs a 9000 rpm just to be an intense band. Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard are two of the heaviest bands I know, and they aren't all screaming or playing speedy riffs. - ElectricCorpseSlayer
Instead of screaming an playing really fast riffs, they use riffs and melodies to make a dark atmosphere. - ElectricCorpseSlayer
Some brutal death metal does. - Metalhead1997
So your melodies don't sound like Old Woman Screams or annoying babies crying. - ElectricCorpseSlayer
Actually, it's the only subgenre with lyrical freedom. Lyrics can be sung, shouted, screamed, growled, or just said. - Metalhead1997
You misspelled "philosophical". I mainly imagine doom as being college level metal along with progressive metal. - Metalhead1997
Technically they were heavy metal. - Metalhead1997
"Black Sabbath is the best band of all time." LMAO You must be smoking and swallowing the same stuff that made Ozzy the fine specimen he is today, and has been for the past forty years.
