I've looked at my ratings on this site thus far, and a majority lean into doom metal, so I'm wondering, what album do you think pushes the boundaries in doom to the extreme? Maybe even too far?

I can think of three that really push the envelope..." rel="nofollow -
VONN - Victim One: Agony cover
Drumless, noisy chaos." rel="nofollow -
BUNKUR - Nullify cover
Stripped back to the barebones, minimalist, bass fuzz hell." rel="nofollow -
BORIS - Absolutego cover
Drone doom noise experiment to the extreme.

Yes, my adoration of huge length doom music leads me to the belief these are pretty extreme examples of the genre.

But what are doom metal albums that strike you as extreme?

Does some of Bull of Heaven's shit that lean more towards drone doom count?

Absolutego (and everything Boris does) is awesome.

A cool album that pushes doom metal to in a completely different direction is Sunn O))) & Nurse With Wound's The Iron Soul Of Nothing

I guess so. I've heard some of their longform drone works, I don't know many of their discography that nails doom really.

If your looking for a doom band that pushes the boundaries to a gross extreme... I wroth this review for in '10.   They seem not to be on the label any longer... but if you can find the CD... listen and be horrified.

Sick - Satanism, Sickness, Solitude.
SpikeFarm Records (2008)
Label Website:

There are many bands that have used this overly used name, and most donít really live up to it.  Upon hearing SpikeFarmís unique and very unsettled new signing, Sick... the name that so many bands have tried on for size, finally has a real owner.

This trio of demented people can be only described as a severely bastardized crossing of Doom Metal, Industrial music like early Ministry and then  added in  unholy satanic lyrics that eats it way through the rotting flesh of the living like a hungry mutated maggot.  This album is not for the squeamish or the faint of heart, or for the normal Black Metal fans for that matter... yet the band is compelling and scary at the same time. 

Sick is just simply very Doomy, depressing music that creates a world of morbid thoughts and deep torment melancholy that has ever been seen.  They are sort of like Novemberís Doom in lyrical complexities, but their hearts seem as black as Satanís soul and are clearly out to feed off of the unwary, the weak or the unlucky.. Musically, they are not overly Ďsparklingí in that department, but they still end up kicking your ass with their heavy grinding type dirges they bring.

This album is hard to get through just once, and perhaps will not be played too many times by most people out there... but one listen of this bleak and highly deranged band is worth buying the damn thing.  Sick is the unofficial yet twisted soundtrack for a world that no one needs to really know about, but should know about to avoid its twisted grip.
