Confessor one of the more technically sounding doom bands around with a very distinct drum sound toiled in obscurity in their first go around releasing the excellent Condemned back in 1991 on Earache. Having taken a break for a decade they returned with 2005's Unraveled. If you looking for another Black Sabbath clone then look somewhere else as this is not your father's doom metal.

13 Jan 2010, 01:38 by LostArkArtists I can't decide if I like:
Hammers of Misfortune
Process of Guilt
I find that I usually either love or hate corny power metal bands, but I can't decide with Secret Sphere. They don't piss me off, but they're not awesome. Their album art is, though.
Shape of Despair
Swallow the Sun
The Old Dead Tree
Albums I can't decide if I like:
Fairyland - Fall of an Empire
Last Chapter - The Living Waters (w/ Rob Lowe)
Rapture - Futile
Unorthodox - Awaken
1 Nov 2009, 22:52 by FeatherofHuginnWhether due to the steady culmination of a cult following, fan pressure, snaky cashgrabs (*cough, cough, Pestilence, cough*), or simply the will to show the new kids on the block how it's done, waves and waves metalbands have been reforming left and right over the last few years, doing tours, releasing new material (for good or bad), and generally kicking ass. This journal is a little tool I'm going to use to keep track of who's back together, and who (in my opinion) still needs to get their ass in gear.
If you think I'm missing something please leave a comment.
Black Sabbath/Heaven And Hell- Get well soon Dio!
Comus (Not metal, but who cares...)
Deathrow (US, Pre-Pentagram)

Revelling in tension, despair, and dread, Doom Metal prizes atmosphere more than many of Metals other primary subgenres. Doom uses plodding tempos, repeated chords, and thick, distorted, down-tuned guitars to attempt to envelope the listener in a wash of desperate foreboding that can commonly last to the ten minute mark and beyond. Instruments generally keep to the standard guitar, bass, and drums, but it is not unusual to add keyboard passages and backdrops.
Doom vocals can be in any of the predominant Metal styles, but all share a determined attempt to invoke emotional hopelessness and mental anguish. This is further amplified by the lyrical themes of grief, depression, fear, resentment, and suffering that are hallmarks of the style.
The roots of Doom Metal are considered to have been planted in the early 70s work of Black Sabbath. In the early and mid-80s, European artists like Witchfinder General and Candlemass adopted the Doom sound as a full fledged genre unto itself…
29 Oct 2008, 21:46 by bereteandojust for fun, I've decided to make a list of my top 10 tech metal albums. it's not a "best of" list, if only for my musical taste; but may be helpful to those seeking outstanding records in this genre. in fact, there's a lot of undisputed classics here.
as my ears tends more to death metal than traditional metal, there's always some level of brutality involved. and the more complex, the better.
(in no particular order)
• Spiral Architect - A Sceptic's Universe (2000)
• Gorod - Leading Vision (2006)
• Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris (2000)
• Gorguts - Obscura (1998)
• Necrophagist - Onset of Putrefaction (1999)
• Anata - The Conductors' Departure (2006)
• Behold... the Arctopus - Nano-Nucleonic Cyborg Summoning (2005)
• Meshuggah - Destroy Erase Improve (1995)
• Confessor - Condemned (1991)
• Visceral Bleeding - Absorbing the Disarray (2007)
• Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt (2004)
• Neuraxis - Trilateral Progression (2005)

Part I: Traditional Doom
As I'm sure some of you are aware, I've taken it upon myself to write "Guides" here exploring the various Metal subgenres, tackling Death and Black metal thus far. Thus I come to what is probably my favorite genre of Metal: Doom.
But Doom metal is as varied as Metal itself; there's Funeral Doom, Doom-Death, Stoner, etc. My intention isn't so much as to write a historical of the genres, but more a guide to worthy bands without degenerating into those asinine top 10 lists that everyone and their dead grandparents have posted on the internet somewhere.
I shall begin this by going to the beginning, to traditional Doom, or true Doom as those over in Hellride like to call it. I have no such petty sectarian attitudes (well, except for "gothic" doom but thats for later). I expect many will disagree with me but whatever, without further ado, let us begin.
Black Sabbath: Black Sabbath not only invented Metal as it would come to be known…
