Post Genealogy of Doom Metal

I'd like to share with you this Doom Metal Genealogy I made some months ago.

Image

As you know, it's impossible to include all the bands we love or would like to be mentioned. That's why I only consider the bands that -in my opinion- are meant to be the most representative and seminal in the history of Doom Metal.

It's just a short genealogy. I'll show you later an extensive one I made too, in the same vein of Sam Dunn's family tree. Meanwhile I'd like to read some opinions. Your suggestions will help me to improve a better scheme.

I like it as an overview. Since I'm not very familiar with the genealogy of doom I cannot comment any fact based stuff.

But I'm saving this pic and waiting for the detailed one.... :)

The connections are far more complex than that, but you know it. ;)

My only remark would be about the choice of bands in the last line. Dawn of Winter, Scald... Boris... Corrupted, Ysigim... all are not the most representative ones, imo. And where's gothic doom? :D

Of course, man. We know it. :;):

I agree. Bands like Scald, Boris or Ysigim may not be the most representative, but -in my point of view- they played a seminal role (in some way) on it's respective Doom Metal branch. I tried to be the more objective as possible when chosing what bands could fit better or deserved to be mentioned. Believe me, it's was a real difficult task to take that kind of decisions. Image You may agree or disagree with the bands I propose, you may love it or hate it. That's the price I'll have to pay. Nevertheless... I really enjoyed building this Genealogy. :inlove:

Don't worry. All the genres you've cited (Gothic Doom, Black Doom, Ambient Doom, Happy Doom :tadbiggrin: ) are included in the more extensive draft I mentioned. If Peru wins today against Colombia, I promise to share it this weekend. See you at Russia 2018!!! :metalhead:

Gothic doom would be hovering around death/doom. All the bands in that section evolved into what was seen as gothic doom at some point.
