A lot of doom fans like them obviously, but they don't seem to get nearly as much praise as other classic doom bands. I've seen a lot of people dismiss them as worthless Sabbath clones. Not saying they don't get any praise though
Lets face the truth here, WG is not as original as both of the mentioned bands, and they only released one solid Album, but still, they hold high regards among the doom fans. The doom imagery they made to this date has helped to shape the doom subculture.
If you like, please check out my instrumental project. I tried to mix Doom Metal with New Age music, and Ethnic Folk. My debut was released a week ago. You can either download, or listen to the whole album, for free at here: http://uscu.unitedstudios.ru/2013/01/roaring-empyrean-to-earths-heart.html
They are all listenable also at here, last.fm: http://www.last.fm/music/Roaring%2BEmpyrean
Please do give me your criticism, feedback, idea and comment on it, at my user page, or at the artist shoutbox.
Best regards and thank you!! \m/
