Reasons Doom Metal is the Best Subgenre of Metal

Metal has a ton of good subgenres. That includes Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Power Metal, Progressive Metal, Speed Metal, Sludge Metal, and The New Wave of British Heavy Metal. However, one extremely underrated Genre, is Doom Metal. This list is why Doom Metal is better than all those genres I said above.

The Top Ten

1 It doesn't have to be fast, to be intense

This reason should be on top.

2 It came first

Just because it came first doesn't necessarily mean it's the best. - Metalhead1997

3 The riffs and melodies give it a great, dark atmosphere
4 No other genre has the apocalyptic feeling of doom metal

Some brutal death metal does. - Metalhead1997

5 Low-tuned guitars
6 It has a lot of variety
7 It has clean vocals that can be understood

Actually, it's the only subgenre with lyrical freedom. Lyrics can be sung, shouted, screamed, growled, or just said. - Metalhead1997

8 It contains meaningful lyrics

You misspelled "philosophical". I mainly imagine doom as being college level metal along with progressive metal. - Metalhead1997

9 Black Sabbath was a doom metal band

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.

10 It helped make gothic metal
