    Hello guys...

    I've been listening to Candlemass and Draconian recently, and I'm very impressed with what I'm hearing.
    I guess I'm starting to get into Doom metal.

    So I need some recommendations (more in the way of Draconian, though Candlemass-like bands are also welcome!). I heard My Dying Bride are really good.


    Thanks in advance!

    As a Draconian fan, definitely check out Swallow the Sun and Saturnus. My Dying Bride is, of course, absolutely mantatory.

    Reverend Bizarre
    Older Anathema
    Older Paradise Lost
    Esoteric
    Funeral
    My Dying Bride is definitely a good choice.

    I've never heard Draconian but if you want bands that sound a bit like Candlemass, try Reverend Bizarre. Funeral and Esoteric are funeral doom (although Esoteric is very unique compared to others), and Anathema/Paradise Lost/My Dying Bride were all doom/death in their earlier eras, although MDB kept the style.

    These bands don't necessarily sound the same as Draconian.. Or at least what i've heard of them.. But they're differing doom/stoner/sludge/drone bands that i enjoy. I've listened to some doom for a while, but only recently have i really started loving it.

    Asunder
    Boris
    Earth
    Esoteric
    The Gault
    Jesu
    Mael Mórdha
    Middian
    Neurosis - not really doom.. but fuck it.. if you haven't heard them check them out!
    Nortt
    Om
    Reverend Bizarre
    Sunn O)))

    And whilst i haven't heard them yet, i've heard good things about diSEMBOWELMENT.

    EDIT: If you feel like being adventurous

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_doom_metal_bands

    Have a goosey gander at that list :p

    Skepticism, early Paradise Lost, Esoteric...especially Esoteric, which is some kind of formless psychedelic doom...incredible musicianship with a beautiful ''druggy'', apocalyptic vibe.

    Ahaha shhh.. still worth checking out!

    Draconian, from what i heard, sounded similar to the sort of My Dying Bride style of Doom. So yes - definitely check them out.. A good starting point being 'The Dreadful Hours'.

    Sure Esoteric's sound isn't similar to Draconian or Candlemass, but it's still very much doom metal and it is a very very very dark, brooding, unique sound that I think anyone should lend an ear to anywho.

    Early Katatonia-Dance of December Souls, and my favorite doom/death album of all-time-Brave Murder Day. For traditional, epic doom Trouble's Psalm 9 and The Skull are essential. Mourning Beloveth is an Irish Doom band. For "funeral" doom try Evoken. As far as MDB go, As the Flowers Wither and Turn Loose the Swans are a good starting point. Crown of Sympathy is one of the absolute best doom songs ever from TLTT.
