Staff review by
Next time a newbie to (Traditional) Doom Metal asks me what the genre is about, my answer shall be confined to one mere word: Warning. As his or her face will doubtlessly bear a puzzled look, should I really answer in such fashion, my patient person shall have to repeat and explain that answer. And I will gladly do so, as everyone that has but the slightest interest in Warning is my friend.

Warning's Watching From A Distance is a Traditional Doom metal album. Correction - Watching From A Distance is one of the best albums Traditional Doom has to offer. Five songs clocking in at nearly fifty minutes of emotionally draining, heartwrenching metal. Grey and bleak and with a devastating vocal performance to boot - a must-check.

I have amazing memories listening to the Alcest album Ecailles De Lune, especially the title tracks parts 1 and 2. Absolutely love that Rush song as well, as you know, they are a very special band to me (I think we have talked about them once somewhere.

Mine are:

Warning - Watching From A Distance/Footprints

Celtic Frost - A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh (I cried right after I heard Martin Ain passed away)

Alcest - Ecailles De Lune Part 1 (sort of. I cried a little bit because I was on one of the bridges in New York looking at the water through the car window, and there was lots of smoke, and it was in traffic, and I started the song off my iPod when we got on the bridge, and it ended exactly when we got off the bridge. By far the most beautiful and memorable music listening experience of my life, I wish I could re-visit it over and over, but then it wouldn't be so special.)

Type O Negative - Love You To Death (Long story short, Type O was my first metal band, and once there was a girl I liked, but then I realized I knew I could never have her, or anyone, and I'm a real lonely fuck.)

I still prefer the Pallbearer version of this album.
Checkout my band here!

Nah^. I will never understand why so many people prefer Pallbearer and why they have so much fans. They are pretty good, but for me not near the level of Warning and even 40 Watt Sun.
