Loved that you took the time with what you wrote. I see where you are coming from on the "alternative side" of the argument, even if I question a few of your choices like Tool or Janes Addiction.

 I think you have to add Trouble into the mix here. Those guys go as far back as the late seventies - early eighties and really helped start the stoner/doom movement. Its a shame that they didn't get more popular than they did. Mostly due to lack of promotion by their own labels, spotty touring, and ignorant press that called them "a poor mans Black Sabbath". But, you would do well to go back and listen to their first three or four albums and see how hugely influential they were.  I would also STRONGLY urge you to listen to St. Vitus and Candlemass. These three bands formed the backbone of the Doom Metal movement. I don't even really listen to much Doom any more, but I have the seminal works of these three bands in my collection.

Thanks for starting this topic and I hope you get some more guys far more qualified than I to further the conversation.
