    Pagan Altar, Witchfinder General, Candlemass, Trouble, Sleep, Reverend Bizarre, and about one million others to pick from. I hope you can read my reccomendations before, y'know, you get banned.

    Aarni is probably my favorite doom band as of late.Its extremely off beat and quirky, but very cynical at the same time. I highly recomend both their split with Umbra Nihil as well as their full-length "Bathos".

    Everything by them is great, but after Discouraged Ones, the really doomy sound kind of dissapated.

    True, but any opportunity to promote them. They rule.

    Pagan Altar are excellent, though they're more of a NWOBHM band. Candlemass and Solitude Aeternus are both enjoyable doomy heavy metal. Disembowelment, Skepticism, Esoteric and Winter all kick ass, and to a lesser extent Thergothon and early MDB are seconded. Sleep are quite interesting though I'm not really into their style. Goatsnake, Burning Witch, Warhorse and of course early Cathedral are all great too.

    Edit: Forgot to second the Witchfinder General recommendation.

    As for my own additions:
    Ceremonium
    Eyes of Ligeia
    Nortt

    Cathedral is a great band. Not all their stuff is doom either but still has remaining elements. The stuff after 'Forest of Equilibrium' is more upbeat and stonerish. The band is not even hard to listen to either. They rock very hard unlike 'black metal' bands'.

    I hate people with ADD. Black Metal is going to warp your perception on music.

    Cathedral is one of the most easy listening doom,sludge,stoner bands on earth. They are very enjoyable and fun to listen too.

    Some of the doom in this thread is like the animal below. You might aswell not even give the genre a chance.

    Both fantastic.

    Also, I'll second whoever seconded Pagan Altar, NWOBHM or not.

    I recall thinking Cultus Sanguine sounded like Anathema, or am I thinking of someone else?

    I'm somehow unable to focus on Evoken for an extended period of time, despite finding them fairly tasteful. They just seem to bore me.
