Hardly 120 epic doom bands listed on the Archives. Not a popular genre it seems, hard to do right too.

Elusive Gods from Croatia are one of the very few good modern bands of this style imo. Check them out here:

Are there more bands/albums/songs that have these sort of chromatic sliding riffs? As I've gotten deeper and deeper into doom over the past decade I keep thinking I'd find more bands that use them, but usually come up short, though it's possible I'm overlooking some.

This particular riff repeats in a number of spots, but 7:03 is a good example.

Anyone know of any atypical drone/doom (drone metal) albums? Sunn 0)))'s Life Metal and its use of odd instuments is a good example of what I'm looking for.

I don't know that album by Sunno))), but I hear there're female chanting vocals... I don't find it 'atypical' from the 10+ minutes I listened to on YT though... There're must be details I skipped.

Three really different drone-related albums come to mind:

led by a female vocalist, there's a very interesting Ep by Vaee Solis; the vocals are very scarce though;this is an experimental, meandering piece of music, it's atmo, cinematic and slightly industrialized... It is definitely worth a listen.

Another one featuring a female singer, weirder, plunging its roots in primitive folk-ish rituals is Sarry's Shiva:

The one (man-only) drone doom project I'm in love with is a strange one-shot of an album, a masterpiece of ritual drone doom; the cd has been stuck in my player for evenings, and listening to it was simply very absorbing, it's Echthros:
https://echthros.bandcamp.com/album/iyov

I'll come up with more if I think of any...

Hello there! I'm new in this music category. The other day I heard "Depresión by Uaral". The whole setup of this song left me speechless. I knew I had to find more songs like this or more bands like this. It would be really much appreciated if you could recommend some songs or bands like this.

As a general recommendation for some good traditional doom metal, Warpriest just came out with their second album and it's really enjoyable.

So I listened to the first two albums by Paradise Lost and it's gotten me curious about the subgenre of doom metal. Can anyone on here list some albums that I can listen to so I can dive in deeper? Preferably something similar to what I listened to but feel free to mention something else if it's really good.

Paradise Lost is basically death/doom metal with some gothic influences. I'm not sure about bands with this exact style of music, but if you're looking to get into death/doom, I'd recommend you check out bands like Thorr's Hammer, Winter, Spectral Voice, Rippikoulu, Black Lodge, Disembowelment, and Katatonia's first two albums. Some of it leans more towards doom while others lean towards death, but a lot of these bands are good for getting into death/doom.

^^ Definitely backing these recommendations up.

Would also recommend these as well;

My Dying Bride - As the Flower Withers
Anathema - Serenades
Theatre of Tragedy - Theatre of Tragedy
Novembers Doom - Amid Its Hallowed Mirth
Morgion - Among Majestic Ruin
Dusk - Majestic Thou in Ruin
Cemetary - Godless Beauty
Tiamat - The Astral Sleep

Stunning meandering stoner Doom: BROCA from Mexico. The sound is heavy and droney and then the excellent heady psychedelic guitar lines make the album an otherwordly voyage. It reminds me of the Spanish Orthodox. First track is very good and the last minutes of it just sublime.
