I must recommend Thronehammer. The band is about to release it sophomore and they're imo among the very best modern epic doom bands. Their debut made a strong impression on me, went though completely under most radars.

This new song is the testimony of they ever growing talent:

I just had to check out a band with the name Thronehammer, couldn't help myself. Not bad but they should ditch the death vocals. Don't see any point in having them when you've got a perfectly good clean singer.
Having completely different styles of vocals is pointless, unless they're portraying different characters or emotions which I didn't hear in this song.

What if it's the same dude doing both styles? Singers like to show off what they can do, y'know. Part of the art.

Yeah sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. In this case I don't think it does and his clean vocal suited the music better. The needs of the song should come first artistically, not the singers need to show they can do everything just because they can.
Paradise Lost is an example where they usually make it work nicely.

Depends on the listener, I guess. I'm always happy to hear singers do their thing to the fullest of their abilities. We have so many albums out there with completely one-dimensional vocals... why berate the guy for trying harder :)

Yep depends on the listener. I'm just another armchair critic with an opinion and you know the old saying about opinions. Tho I hardly think I was berating him.

Please recommend me some songs/albums/bands, of any subgenre, that have a very "scary" atmosphere and give a feeling of impending doom, like these:

Black Tomb - Church On The Hill: https://blacktomb.bandcamp.com/track/church-on-the-hill
Sunn o))) & Boris - Etna: https://sunn.bandcamp.com/track/etna-2
Atramentus - Stygian: https://listen.20buckspin.com/album/stygian

Atramentus has to be linked to the "school" of funerary extreme doom initiated by Evoken which are mandatory (less the two latest albums of theirs), then try Indesinence, Tyranny by any means, Anhedonist...

Black Tomb, it's some typical misantropic Sludge. Check out Toadliquor, Ramesses, Khanate, Grief for similar stuff. There're plenty of them. Noothgrush's 'Erode the Person' too is a classic. Some among the most crushing bands in the style are Halo, Buried at Sea (their Migration album is super heavy), Corrupted (verging on Funeral doom), Volition...

edit: I skipped the "scary" part of the request as it is really very personal and every thing slow, dark and crushing brings a smile on my face, but if I had to point you to one specific doom project, I'd say Tyranny.

Searching for super melodic doom bands, or doom bands with songs less than 9 minutes, are there any?

Seven minutes, instrumental, with fast-ish parts even.

The new Thronehammer is out and it's some amazing epic doom metal.

Their means are modest and melody-wise, there's not much to contemplate, but the pacing and rythmic ideas are excellent.
Check it out here:

I like Thronehammer's vocals, but as for the music, I'm not really a fan. The songs are overly long and don't really go anywhere, and the riffs don't really make me want to bob my head or hum along or anything.

I'm rather thinking the same about some of the songs' length. Sometimes it's just a bit too long, but eventually it works with me.
But then I'm a Funeral Doom fan too, and repeated patterns, drawn-out structures don't repel, me, on the contrary.
It's really that simplicity, and the atmosphere they manage to build with so little on the table that I find very interesting.

Atrox are often quite melodic, and mostly keep to below 9 minutes:



Other than that, it might be worth checking out Atlantean Kodex:

I'm interested in Saint Vitus' "The Tyrant Demos 1979" (https://www.discogs.com/Saint-Vitus-The ... e/16518768) but I'm skeptical. Does anyone on here have it / like it / find it listenable?

Looking for funeral doom and/or sludge/stoner doom that incorporate (slow) bluegrass/country overtones. Any old west, hauntings, ghost story lyrical themes are a plus. Is there anything out there like that?

Trying to hear really anthemic, catchy, get-stuck-in-your-head stoner/doom or sludge songs. Literally don't care if the riffs or vocal lines sound exactly the same from the songs below, send it my way. Clean vocals preferred, but harsh vocals will do as well.

Spoiler: show

Lately I've been binging on a few doom bands that have a decidedly loose and "jamming" style to them, as if the whole thing could peel out at any minute, but still muscular. Would really dig it if anyone could throw bands in that style at me. For examples of what I am, and am not looking for, please see below:

Bands that hit the mark
Church of Misery
Blood Farmers
Ogre
Iron Man
Pale Divine (early)
The Gates of Slumber (occasionally)
Cathedral (2nd and 3rd album)
Green Machine
Spirit Caravan
Eternal Elysium
Briton Rites

Bands that do not hit the mark
Electric Wizard
YOB
Bongripper
Cough
Weedeater
Sleep
Conan

Also, while I'm fairly well versed in doom metal and its sub-genres, there is a chance that I may have overlooked some less popular but not obscure bands in this style. My tastes tend to skew heavily towards traditional material, and self-admittedly, I can be quick to ignore and dismiss "stoner" oriented bands.
