The original post

Posted by SlaytanicGonzo on 25.01.2011 at 10:01
I have listened to very little Doom, and would like to know more about it. Can you recommend me which are the best and "basic" Doom metal albums? Like Reign In Blood and Bonded By Blood are for thrash or Altars Of Madness and Legion are for death metal. Preferably with clean vocals.
I listened to Candlemass' Nightfall and Draconian's Arcane Rain Fell and love those albums. As well as Sabbath's old stuff (if that counts as Doom)

If you like stoner doom, check out Dopesmoker by Electric Wizard. Honestly I don't think it's their best album, but everyone seems to view it as a classic.

There is no Electric Wizard album called Dopesmoker EW's is called Dopethrone. Sleep however does have an album called Dopesmoker

...And it can hardly be called "doom."


Both Electric Wizard and Sleep are totally doom. Call it stoner doom or sludge doom, but doom it is. And both have quite a bit of Black Sabbath in their sound as well.

Yeah saying Electric Wizard and Sleep don't have massive doom influence/significance is just plain wrong.

For me, basic doom albums are:

Sleep - Sleeps Holy Mountain
Candlemass - Nightfall
St Vitus - Born Too Late
