Yes. That's very close. If someone had said it was a new Comatose Vigil Album I would have believed them.

Any bands releasing good new music in the style of Funeral's In Fields of Pestilence Grief after 2010 or so?

Can anyone recommend some music in the vein of OM and Phurpa?

Thanks for the recommendations. Omit seems interesting, I think I'll order their last two albums. Trees of Eternity hasn't really been my thing, I remember the demos as well and it always felt a bit bland. I remember Lethian Dreams as well, but remember them as being a second-rate band, anything in particular you recommend?

Try these two:
https://avainferiofficial.bandcamp.com/album/onyx (dynamic atmo doom)
https://herodias.bandcamp.com/album/cult-of-herodias (rather dull funeral doom, but the female vocals are perfect)

I don't know them so well...

ps: about Omit, PM me if you want to get their first album (my favourite)

I can only second the Lethian Dreams recommendation; check out Red Silence Lodge in particular, it has an ethereal, slightly post-rockish vibe. The female vocals are dignified and sober but full of emotions. And then Remembrance would be a band to give some attention to as well..

I know this is kind of a specific request but I'm looking for more in the vein of Turn Loose the Swans-Searr Me 1993 by My Dying Bride.

Zaum' singer has another band, Shevil. A tad less trippy, but fine stoner doom nonetheless:
https://shevil.bandcamp.com/album/shevil
And it seems to me rather reasonable to point also at The Wounded Kings' magnificent The Shadow over Atlantis for another slice of excellent psyche ethereal doom.

I'm looking for death/doom bands without a gothic atmosphere. Even though I like bands like Tristania, I want to hear something different from that. I want a very heavy doom metal sound with growled vocals. Death metal elements are welcome. Ideally it shouldn't be too slow, so I don't think funeral doom applies here. Basically I want a death-doom band with an attitude of death metal. Some examples of what I want:

Not really doom metal, but gives you an idea.
Youtube: show


The guitar tone at 1:27 is what I'm looking for. It's crushingly heavy. If they had less clean vocals and gothic elements, they would be close to what I want.
Youtube: show


Same with Candlemass, they are heavy, but I don't want clean vocals or atmospheric elements (maybe a little, but not that much).

This is definitely close to what I'm looking for, thank you. The only thing I don't like is that the guitars are not very loud, if they were more like that song from MBD, this band would be almost perfect.

@Diplomate:
Tell me if I'm on the right track, I hear something elegiac and the echo of a fading glory in that MDB riff. But you need some death-ish attitude too.

Well, I can think of Evoken (Shades of Night Descending) , Runemagick (Envenom), Indesinence (Neptunian), Serpentine Path (st), Thorns of the Carrion (The Gardens of Dead Winter)... Stuff like that, no?



there're many more like this.

edit: come to think of it, maybe the recs I did here above are verging a bit to far into the funerary genre. There's a band that I'm thinking of this morning that is quite interesting, it's Excruciation from Swizerland, their album [t]horns does have some gothic leanings, but more in the vein of Celtic Frost, it's still sharp and really heavy. Check it out.

Anyone have any note worthy 2019 epic and trad doom metal releases they could recommend. Only two great releases that come to mind are the new Altar of Oblivion and Spirit Adrift albums. Thanks!

I loved Black Lotus; it's from 2018 but maybe you didn't hear the album?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvI2kpXhaYE

Another great discovery for me is this quite diverse doom project, released in 2019, Thronehammer, it's glorious and tragic, it conveys an engaging, thrilling atmosphere all along, strongly supported by a fine wailing clean voice complemeted by some growls. Some quite subtle stuff, very solid too.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkLfagIKGlQ

Grief Collector from 2019 with Rob Lowe is nice too. I had higher hopes though.
https://griefcollector1.bandcamp.com/al ... -to-avowal

(I wasn't aware of a new AOO... great news, and it sounds good so far!)

I feel like there's been a CLAMOR about Smoulder lately. Surely you're up on Smoulder right? One look at their LP artwork should let you know exactly what to expect.

I recently found this band End of Green. I don't listen to much doom metal (I'm more into doom/death) but their Infinity album is pretty good. Any recommendations for similar bands?

Sorry for a late response, but this stuff actualy sounds like what I was looking for, even though it's funeral doom. Thank you. :)

Definitely Concilium's EP.

The EP by For Centuries is pretty cool too but not essential.

Have you checked out Lord Vicar"The Black Powder", it's gonna be one of my albums of the year, great stuff. Also gotta say I dig the new St Vitus too.

Assuming 40 Watt Sun is too obvious an answer?

I feel tempted to say Without is somewhat close to that, but they also have a lot of ethereal wave and shoegaze elements in their sound.

Slowcore/sadcore. Two stupid genre names perfect for the [Stupid] genre question megathread (is x a real genre?) thread.

Searching for a band that creates a dark, doomy atmosphere as if a huge rock is eternally pushing you down, down, down with no way to escape it.

Judging by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKReCgUZQ0M it seems that Black Metal + Doom Metal, simply sounds like Black Metal. Which does sound really good but it doesn't sound like doom at all to me.

So I don't know where to point you to recognize my taste :/

I don't want opera sounds, that's for sure.

I want very deep sounds (deep bass? if that's the instrument)

Maybe less melodic and more distorted melodic? altho that's an IF factor

then again, the melodic sounds on False - Portent album sound very good so I'm not even sure what I'm after :S I guess there's a difference between mainstream melodic and other melodies. I hate the melodic sounds you can hear in Symphonic/Melodic Death Metal. They ruin the death metal for my taste.

no instrumental-only bands please

Thanks for replying

I think you're on the right track with Rorcal as the only other band that fits me is called HELL https://www.google.com/url?q=https://ww ... aN2JsTFN6a (I keep calling them rascal lol) but they're still too distorted for a daily listen, definitely will listen to them but I'm looking for something to grab onto for a longer while. (as for HELL, I don't play them daily because the vocals are overshaowed by the instrumental, a worthy note is that they don't even have the deep sounds that I look for, but they're still the closest I've gotten to listening doom metal)

Khanate sounds alright too but still not the right sound, sounds kinda experimental too

burning witch is good but it'll end up on my black metal playlist. Not Doom Metal enough for me lol

Regarding the deep sounds, it's very hard to explain it, it's like part 7:17 but even deeper https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KnyL4IFcwo

So you want something cruching and that doesn't stop crushing and you're not too sure about the amount and quality of the melodic side of it?
Hell is a funeral sludge doom band. It's slow, heavy and has a grainy, droney tone

Thinking of these, roughly in the same line:
Foehammer: https://grimoirerecords.bandcamp.com/album/foehammer
Otesanek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD9eEe9Zltk (no melody at all, but super crushing)
Usnea: https://usneadoom.bandcamp.com/album/usnea
Lost Hours: https://thelosthours.bandcamp.com/
Forn: https://forn.bandcamp.com/album/demo-tape

I'm not sure this is quite the best thread to ask this, but it seems like it's the most likely to get an answer, so:

I recently bought a Reverend Bizarre t-shirt from Shadow Kingdom Records. It features a band photo, but I just realized it features 4 people. Weren't Reverend Bizarre a trio for their whole career? Who is the fourth person featured?

Sounds like you need Warhorse's As Heaven Turns to Ash. Deep and heavy as fuck, but very much in the tradition of early Sabbath. Like riding a mammoth to the bottom of a tar pit.
