I've decided to start looking into this genre.  Any fans of this style here?  If so, what are your favorite ones?  I'll want to go check them out.  I already know I'm going to check out
Quietus by Evoken
and The Call of the Wretched Sea by Ahab.

Abyssmal sorrow's Lament is a fantastic album.

I don't think so, I've never heard them called that.  They are more stoner doom, or something.

^Ah, ok!
Well, Wilytank, try the band french Monolithe ( http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/monolithe.aspx?ac=monolithe" rel="nofollow - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/monolithe.aspx?ac=monolithe ). One of their albums (strangely, not listed on MMA) is free for download in Jamendo: http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/4817" rel="nofollow - http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/4817

Not enough familiar with the genre but the out of my head right now I could list these great albums:

Shape of Despair - Illusion's Play
Mournful Congregation - The Monad of Creation

Could also mention Nortt but that would also work in black metal.

I'd like to also mention Wormphlegm.  They are a very disturbing one.

Bump.

Some of you may have noticed my recent stream of funeral doom metal reviews.  The classic bands of the genre are not to be missed.

^Do you know Esoteric, Wilytank? Do you recommend that band?

They're next on my list of classic funeral doom bands to review, but I'll need to give Epistemological Despondency (or whatever) another listen before reviewing, which will be a bitch because Esoteric have a really bad habit of doing two CD albums.

I do really like The Maniacal Vale though.

Any Mournful Congregation album, and you might also want to check Nortt out... and of course, there's Funeral themselves.

Also. check http://www.last.fm/user/399796kms/journal/2008/04/27/b8mk3_a_guide_to_doom-metal_part_iii:_funeral_doom" rel="nofollow - this out.

That reminds me.  Gotta check out Theogoten (or whatever).

I plan on hitting up some modern funeral doom albums as well.  Stay tuned to the Now Playing thread. Wink

And about Nortt, Wilytank? What you think?

Nortt's Gudsforladt are on my to listen to list.  I'll probably end up reviewing it as well. Thumbs Up

You should check out Worship at some stage, specifically their album Last Tape Before Doomsday.

Right now, checking out some Ea.  I've been told their first album is their best, but since it's not on Grooveshark, I have to settle for their third.



Not reviewing until I check their other stuff first.

That may be a while.  Just sayin. Wink  Thankfully, Worship's Dooom is on Grooveshark so I can get to that one sooner.

FDM reviews I have on draft (intros and nothing more):

Ahab's The Call of the Wretched Sea
Ataraxie's Slow Transcending Agony
Esoteric's Subconscious Dissolution Into the Continuum and The Maniacal Vale
Evoken's Embrace the Emptiness

My goal is to at least get Subconscious Dissolution... reviewed by the end of this week.

My favorite funeral doom albums are "The Book of Kings" by Mournful Congregation and "The Maniacal Vale" by Esoteric.

Well, I never did get that review in.  Maybe this week.

The Maniacal Vale is a huge favorite of mine as well.  Haven't heard anything by Mournful Congregation other than The Monad of Creation.  Is their subsequent material any better?  I thought Monad... was a 90% album.

Wilytank, you should check out Mournful Congregation's new album, The Book of Kings. The title-track is great.

I'm aware of them.  I've belted out reviews for their major releases already. Wink

Before I moved into the later releases of the genre, I made sure to review some of the classics from Funeral, Skepticism, and Esoteric.

Here's a funeral doom band for ya, Wily. WOTH are probably the most unique funeral doom band out there, IMO. Grimy and dripping with raw sewage.

I really should get back to these.  I have drafts (intros only) for Evoken's Quietus, Esoteric's The Maniacal Vale, Ahab's The Call of the Wretched Sea, and Catacombs' In the Depths of R'lyeh sitting in my draft list for months now.
