The music is influenced by, but not limited to, My Dying Bride and Opeth. Many of the members went on to form Another Messiah....

Gospel Of Despair
    Monolith Cult deliver a brand of old school sounding epic doom that just barely fails to deliver into the excellent category.
    This steadfast and concerted debut effort from Colossus Morose is a nostalgic, but not dated, old-school Death/Doom work.

Baleful Astral Elements
    Perhaps a little fatigued with 7 albums over just 4 years, this latest from Argentinian band Funeris scores higher on Ambient, rather than Funeral, content.
 cdimgGuardian Demons
    Good in some respects, weaker in others, the King Heavy sophomore makes for a reasonable Trad Doom outing.

The Pernicious Enigma (Remix)
    Perhaps the deepest, darkest and most enveloping of all of Esoteric's sonic terrorist explorations, now available in lovely CD digibook format as well as on vinyl.
 cdimgWitch Mountain
    Portland's Witch Mountain return with a bewitching and explosive new album, brief but nonetheless gorgeous.
    Sweden's Throneless produce an all-enveloping Sludge/Stoner sophomore well worth investigating.
    Not a total disaster, but by no means an essential Gothic/Doom venture, Grlscz's sophomore blows hot and cold throughout.

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.
