Anatomical Venus
    Followers of Black Moth will be unsurprised by the quality of this latest release; for other Stoner fans this is definitely a good place to start paying attention.
 cdimgAshen Blood
    Denver band Green Druid offer an interesting 'Dark Souls'-inspired debut album as their first full-length release.

    Not so much Doom as doomy cinematic soundtrack, Thomrukh's debut is nonetheless worth investigating.
 cdimgBanlieue Triste
    Both perfect and perfectly bleak, Hangman's Chair unflinchingly face up to the dark side of human existence.

    Capable of grandeur and brilliance, but also just a little too familiar in places, Soliloquium's sophomore ends up a bit of a mixed bag.
    After a near 20-year hiatus, Serbian Death/Doom band The Bloody Earth return with a solid, atmospheric release.
cdimgDeath May Die
    Hela''s sophomore does a fine job of presenting a deliciously dark human-centric experience dressed in occult trappings.
    Witchsorrow's latest full-length is a picture-perfect distillation of what the Heavy Metal/Doom crossover ought to look like.

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.
