    I'm looking for similiar stuff to Swallow the Sun, Kongh and Long Distance Calling. I'm not the googler I once was.

    I just recently got into Ahab...Fucking beautiful. When you think about it, the deep dark ocean can be just as grim and frostbitten as any northern forest or icicle. Listening to the whole album in the car with the bass all the way up and at night time = Amazing atmosphere

    Wouldn't call it frostbitten, I'd call it waterlogged

    Been on a funeral doom binge as of late. Mostly Thergothon, Skepticism and Mournful Congregation. Been meaning to check out Profetus. Anyone heard them?

    I love black metal. I love doom/death. I like some trad doom, etc...but I can't stand funeral doom.

    Trad doom and epic doom are my favorite genres, by far.

    I honestly cant do funeral doom either... Pretty much every other kind of doom I can enjoy... but not it.

    I find funeral doom tolerable, but not something I would listen to a lot.

    Would angelic process be considered doom?

    Ah very cool. Skepticism is by far my favorite funeral doom band so chances are I'll dig Profetus.

    Never could get into Ahab. I've heard The Call of the Wretched Sea about 4 times now, and still nothing about it really stuck with me.

    *Edit, Profetus update dept: On their myspace now, this is good, really fucking good.

    You know what bugs me about Under The Oak on Tales Of Creation? They re-recorded a great song, but changed the best damn thing about the song; the vocal melodies in the verses. Especially at "which gave me shelter" and "I'm the last one on earth", why cange that?

    Agreed. They're just generic in terms of just general doom metal, not just funeral doom/death doom. I don't see why someone into death/doom could not get into something like Skepticism `Lead and Aether or Thergothon.

    Profetus sounds killer.

    I'm with you here. I don't hate the band, but it was one of those things were I was expecting something really good and after hearing the first album I thought "um, that's it? :confused:"

    I'll probably order the album soon. One of the reasons I became interested in them was they played the Dooomstock Festival with Skepticism a while back.

    Listened to Stream From the Heaven's again earlier tonight. Just layed down, pushed play. Best way to listen to the album if you ask me.

    I like it a lot, yeah. And that's saying something, considering it's funeral doom.
