Brimbly-Brambly Bucka-Bucka Woozle-Wuzzle It's A Doom List.


I find it difficult to keep track of all the doom bands and albums that I enjoy, and they are beginning to pile up. To combat the situation, I've devised this list of quality doom releases for quick reference. It's not in a very specific order, but there is a general sense that one could be imposed upon it. The first few are definitely my favorites, but after that point it degenerates into a general collection of albums that I like.

This list is entirely for my benefit and purely for organizational purposes. If you happen to approve, then well done you, though I'm well aware that I am missing some important ones. Marcel, if you should find this, please do not destroy me.

I don't think I'd give any of these a perfect 10 at the moment (excepting, of course, Paranoid, and, as of recently, Watching From A Distance), although a few are certainly in competition. There are some very high 9s indeed, all the way down to some middling 7s.

Sorry, but I think I cannot give this list a thumbs up, for it has Paradise Lost/Katatonia wannabees at two and eight, ffs. And Bloody Kisses doom? I would say gothic, but I can understand the choice for that and it is a totally awesome album.

The list has some great albums on it, but, unfortunately loads and loads of undeserving ones as well. Kypck? ffs. Rememberance? Huh? I could go on but won't.

You know what, a thumbs up from me ads encouragement and that you're a bit on the right track. But pull your socks up or I'll have to fail you at the end of the year.

I thought of that for a second, but even I found it way too cheesy.

Well, to be honest, the reason for that is because I haven't actually listened to Epicus Doomicus Metallicus yet (although I recognize of course what a problem this is).

List is fucking brilliant. Wonder why this gets unnoticed and dozens of worthless list gets commented on in tons.

Lots of great doom albums here. But Dragonforce's Ultra Beatdown? Srsly?

Thank you! I think, though, and Marcel will back me up here, that DragonForce is the quintessential doom band.

Absolutely. One cannot seriously have a doom list without DragonForce on it.



btw, loved how someone really responded seriously to you having that band on here.

Loads of great albums, but also quite a few that I don't like... and loads of albums I have yet to hear.

I'd go for a maximum of 2 (or even 1) albums/band approach though. And you haven't heard Candlemass debut? I'd get to that ASAP if I were you, then. It's easily their best album.

Anyway, definitely a nice list. But it could be improved upon quite a bit too, in my opinion.

Anyway, definitely a nice list. But it could be improved upon quite a bit too, in my opinion.

It worked out to be one-to-two albums for just about every band anyway, maybe three at a stretch; I think Black Sabbath was the only one with four, and I think I could safely label that a special case. The main impetus for this list was to catalogue all the bands I'd only heard one or two albums from and was likely to forget about without some proper record-keeping, and I just threw in my favorites for the sake of completion; it's likely to stay that way.

I did actually mean to listen to some more Candlemass before I made the list purely because it was such a big omission and was likely to be the first thing any chance observer noticed, but ultimately I didn't have the time and just wanted to go ahead and make it. Once the Awards are done and I've cleared out a few more reviews, though, they're high up on the list of future listening projects.

SSUS probably has the most diversed taste here on MS, the blend of dwarf SS-Panzer-Division Wiking metal and this excellent doom list is quite fascinating And I just love to see Four Phantoms get the treatment it deserves.
