Could anyone reccomend me some Doom Metal albums? Been listening to some Candlemass, Krux, Reverend Bizzare, Pentagram and Acid King on Last fm/Youtube lately and I like what I've heard so far... But I'd like to know what would be a good buy. Big smile

October Tide's "Rain Without End" is amazingly good. Get it now if you haven't done so already

Reverend Bizarre's last studio album III: So Long Suckers is great.
 
Swallow the Sun mixes doom and death and whatnot and does it wonderfully. Their debut The Morning Never Came is probably the doomiest of their albums, but they seem to be just getting better all the time.

The Morningside are an amazing doom/death band from Russia. Post-Metallish riffs and heavy structures, all wrapped up in a nature based facade. If you like Agalloch, you will like them.

I'm no expert on the genre, but Electric Wizard is some damn good Stoner/Doom metal.

You've already mentioned Candlesmass, but I'll just recommend a bunch of their albums anyway which I think are absolutely brilliant: "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus", "Ancient Dreams", "Tales of Creation", "King of the Grey Islands", "Death magic Doom". I'd also recommend Solitude Aeturnus' "Into the Depths of Sorrow", "Beyond the Crimson Horizon" (my fave), and "Alone". Candlemass and Solitude Aeuturnus are more epically inclined. I guess I'd also recommend "Mandylion" by The Gathering, although it is probably categorized as gothic metal these days. The same goes for Paradise Lost's "Draconian Times".  If you like really heavy stuff, then you might be interested in Cathedral's debut album "Forest of Equilibrium" or Winter's "Into Darkness" or in the work of Saturnus. There's also Nortt's extremely dark funeral doom.

Have you heard Bison B.C.?  They're Thrash / Doom, very cool.  Saw them live with Shadows Fall.  Guys are cool, from Vancouver.  They're on touring with High On Fire, and with Priestess.

here's a link with their 2 albums, http://www.loudtrax.com/Artist/Bisonbc

and here's a You Tube link with my favorite track from them:

Here's one for you collctors of rare items: Morfeus - they were an underground doom band in the 90s and released a couple of demo tapes. Eventually they changed to melodic death metal and changed their name to Mindmare (by that time there were no original members left). Mindmare are still active.

Lol.

I have a couple recommendations of some lesser-known bands.

My first would be Giant Squid, a progressive-doom metal band from California, and a personal favorite of mine.  They're relatively new, and just released their second album (The Ichthyologist) last year, although I would recommend their first album, Metridium Fields.  Imagine a mix between sludgy-doom riffs, progressive experimentation, Serj Tankian-esque vocals, and some post-rock tendencies with longer compositions and echoey guitars all leading up to epic, doomy finales.  Check it out:


Some other good songs: Versus the Siren, Ampullae of Lorenzini

Another favorite of mine is a German band called Ahab, who play a kind of funeral doom metal that's incredibly massive and heavy, with slow-churning riffs, low guitars, and deep, gutteral vocals with lots of oceanic themes.  Highly recommended for more traditional doom metal fans.



Also, if you aren't listening to Sunn O))) yet, you should do that too.
