A subgenre of heavy metal, which is generally described
slow and very
heavy; it is really a progression and exaggeration of stoner rock. Although very
(sometimes mind numbingly) slow, doom metal can be more upbeat. No matter what
kind of doom, the genre owes a lot to Black Sabbath
, whose early
records were very doom.
Doom can also be mixed with
other types of music - some
bands add a gothic flavour, some
a more stoner rock groove, some
, such as Forest of Shadows, mix it with
Traditional doom - Black Sabbath, Candlemass.
More upbeat doom - Cathedral, Solitude
