    They aren't really doom yet they are probably closest to doom than any other genre. Bands like Isis, Neurosis, Cult of Luna and to a lesser extent Oceansize have basically created a style of their own.

    Last Fair Deal Gone Down is not a doom album.

    I'm not even going to bother with an all time favourites list because I have checked out way too many doom bands in the past few months and I still need to let it all sink in and see which ones I ultimately find the best.

    But some of my current favourites are:

    Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus
    Dolorian - When All The Laughter Has Gone
    Esoteric - Subconscious Dissolution Into The Continuum
    Katatonia - Brave Murder Day/Sounds of Decay
    Reverend Bizarre - Crush The Insects
    Skepticism - Stormcrowfleet
    Solitude Aeternus - Through The Darkest Hour
    Thergothon - Streams from the Heavens
    Witchfinder General - Death Penalty
    YOB - The Illusion of Motion

    And Neurosis and Isis are sludge, not doom.

    You could call them something else but you'd be wrong.

    Evoken - Antithesis of Light
    Esoteric - Metamorphogenesis
    My Dying Bride - Light at the End of the World
    Void of Silence - Human Antithesis (my highest recommendations for this one, with vocals of Nemtheanga of Primordial)
    Shining - Angst (well it's some kinda black/doom)

    I haven't familiarized myself much with Katatonia yet... I imagine their earlier albums sound much different than modern?

    Quite. Everything up to and including Brave Murder Day is doom metal. Some of which features Mikael on vocals actually (Brave Murder Day apart from track 3, and the Sounds of Decay EP).

    From Discouraged Ones on they are more melancholic rock music (though still edging on metal on some albums). For old Katatonia I'd recommend checking out Brave Murder Day and for new Katatonia I'd recommend Last Fair Deal Gone Down.
