Classic revisited

Random band

Melancolic gothic/doom with clean and grunted male vocals. Atmospheric, yet heavy. The music has clear similarities to My Dying Bride....

Blasphema Secta
    The latest, and perhaps the finest, slickest incarnation of Abysmal Grief's horror B-movie Gothic Doom to date.
 cdimgZatokrev (Remaster)
    Zatokrev's excellent debut gets a very cool 15-year anniversary remastered vinyl release.

In Mourning's Symphony
    An interesting first album from Sencezium, but one that never fully delivers its atmospheric potential.
 cdimgSky Shadow Obelisk/Djinn And Miskatonic (Split EP)
    A tasty Psych/Doom/Stoner vinyl split outing that really should take you on a far distant trip.

 cdimgGarden Of Worm/The Wandering Midget (Split)
    If you need a reminder of how good Finnish Trad Doom can be, here it is, in tasteful retro vinyl.

News regarding the doom-metal site webhosting

Updated: 22/03/18
Well, it wasn't entirely painless, but has now successfully moved to what we anticipate will be a more stable and reliable hosting service. Apologies for any disruption over the last day or so while the migration was taking place.

Following the recent and rather disappointing non-service offered by our current hosting company, doom-metal will be moving to a different supplier imminently. No guarantees with such things, obviously, but we do expect it to be a straightforward and largely seamless transition, with only the forum temporarily unavailable for posting purposes only. This will prevent anyone accidentally publishing comments to the 'old' version - and hence losing them - while the internet catches up with where the 'new' version is.

Still available...

Please check the Merchandise page for up-to-date information on our top-quality exclusive Doom products.
