    I was inspired by the latest doom metal special from Terrorizer to make my own top 50 doom album list. Well U got over halfway through it and got busy with other things but here is what I came up with.

    note; Black Sabbath - Paranoid I did not feel the need to list cause it is a given. Considered Dust but some may not see them as doomy as me. And Coven - Worship New Gods also balances the fence there.


    1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
    2. Solstice - New Dark Age
    3. Candlemass - Epicus, Doomicus, Metallicus
    4. Solitude Aeturnus - Into the Depths of Sorrow
    5. Cathedral - Forrest of Equalibrium

    8. Witchcraft - Witchcraft
    9. Candlemass - Nightfall
    10. Candlemass - Tales of Creation
    11. Candlemass - Ancient Dreams
    12. Trouble - Pslam 9
    C.O.C- Blind
    13. Solitude Aeturnus - Beyond the Crimson Horizon
    14. Tiamat - Wild Honey
    15. Paradise Lost - Shades of God
    16. Witchfinder General - Death Penalty
    17. Witchfinder General - Friends of Hell

    My Dying Bride is the definition of doom metal. And chicks dig them too; in my home we have MDB night and well that is a special evening. Something about that dark romantic heaviness the ladies dig.

    Pate wins! Man, I love that Sorcerer disc and I agree that Nightfall is the best Candlemass.

    Despite what Jason may think, i.e. that they go beyond doom, yadda, yadda, etc. the truth of the matter is if it wasn't for MDB I don't know if I'd be into doom. I heard about them when "A Line of Deathless Kings" came out and was hooked. From there is when I looked up bands like Candlemass (even though they have a radically different sound).

    top 5 doom albums.....



    1. Edguy - Rocket Ride
    2. In Flames - Reroute to Remain
    3. Hallows Eve - The NEverending Sleep
    4. Hammers of Misfortune - The Bastard
    5. Tokyo Blade - Thousand Men Strong


    these albums always make me feel depressed since they were supposed to be great albums. Nothing but doom and gloom in my life.

    Those two lists were pretty comprehensive but there was one band that I dig that I did not see: Church of Misery.

    Funny, I was expecting a Freedom Call joke from you.

    And that Tokyo Blade album kicked ass.

    "Doom" only means slow metal to me, so this list won't look like anyone else's. Most of these aren't real doom but I like them a hell of a lot more than real doom.

    Agalloch - Pale Folklore
    Bathory - Hammerheart
    Bathory - Twilight of the Gods
    Bathory - Blood on Ice
    Bathory - Nordland I
    Cirith Ungol - King of the Dead
    Katatonia - Dance of December Souls
    Love History - Galileo, Figaro - Magnifico...
    Mithotyn - In the Sign of the Ravens
    Summoning - Minas Morgul
    Theatre of Tragedy - Theatre of Tragedy

    Ok, before my list, I want to clarify something..................

    Is Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, or Shadows Fall "Heavy Metal"???
    One word answer...........NO!

    So, as much as I LOVE Katatonia, My Dying Bride, Saturnus, etc, etc.....they are not DOOM.
    They are "Dark Metal" which is as much influenced by avante garde and death metal as it is doom.

    Genre definitions are subjective, so that's fine. Put on the list what you wish, but I will not have dark metal bands on mine.

    What????????
    When have I EVER claimed ND to be a doom band?

    ND are the epitome of what I referred to above as "Dark Metal"
    No band on my list has harsh vocals.

    The only "stretch" on my list would be the inclusion of some stoner bands.

    I'm pretty sure "dark metal" only exists in your imagination, and if My Dying Bride isn't doom, then there's no such thing as doom.
