    I don't like Swallow the Sun. Seems too much like Doom-lite to me - Boring. Give me some Skepticism or Solitude Aeternus.

    The most death/doom makes me sleep but Swallow the Sun is okay I guess but I cant manage to stay awake threw a whole album :p

    Old katatonia is the best doom ever imo, it took me a while to like Jonas black/death growls but they are great when you start to like them. Brave Murder Day is THE best doom record ever (probably because Mikael Åkerfeldt does the harsh vocals).

    Shit! Thanks for recommending DOOM:VS, I fucking love Draconian. Anyways, lots of good recommendations so far but I'd like to add a few more

    Virgin Black (not typical doom, but definitely worth checking out)
    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=55462238

    Evoken
    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=43531735

    Shape of Despair (MUST HAVE for doom lovers)
    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=15041195

    Skepticism
    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=175481322

    Esoteric + Evoken = one hell of a sorrowful night, but a great one at that.

    They are nothing like Draconian though.

    Well, I'll try harder:

    The fourth song on this myspace is from WARNING's 2006 album Watching From a Distance.

    Some quotes to reinforce my sentiment that this is the best doom release of this decade (at least):

    Warning - Footprints
    I am not feeling the green burning flame,
    As I gaze back along footprints you have made.

    And I am not dreaming of more than you have shown.
    You are not a foundation,
    You are not a stone.

    But I'm afraid of the way that I'm feeling;
    Afraid of this new understanding now;
    Afraid for the beauty within me,
    And that which I hold within my hand.
    And this is the ultimate secret,
    That many before me have ever known.
    So capture me while I am weakest;
    I want to know,
    I want to know.

    Here I am wide open, surrendering to your side;
    I have laid down my armour,
    I have no sword at my side.
    I leave behind me the ruins of the fortress I swore to defend;
    I leave behind me foundations;
    I'll leave you a man I'll need you to mend.
    And through all the battles around me
    I never believed I would fight.
    Yet here I stand, a broken soldier,
    Shivering and naked, in your winter light.
