Post Quick overview: what are your favourite Doom genres?

To have a more precise idea of the users' taste in Doom; this has been done before, but I'd like to know, as people keep coming and going. You may select 3 options.

I chose Gothic and Drone, which I could easily imagine are the two most hated styles of Doom. :D

Shit, I voted before even reading the opening post, so I assumed I could only vote for one (after all, it says so in the header: "what is your favourite Doom genre". :;): So I chose Death/Doom. Would have added Funeral Doom and Gothic Doom (since Atmospheric Doom is missing in the list) if I had read the opening post.

Post Re: Quick overview: what are your favourite Doom genres?

Well, I'll vote for Gothic, Black and Death as those contain by far the greatest number of bands/albums I like. But in terms of per capita quality, I actually think Avant-Garde is probably the best value.

Yes, I understand that, but it was too late for me to do so since I had already cast my vote. Doesn't really matter, though.

Haha, I knew I was the chosen one, the only One to appreciate traditional doom :gravegrab:

Joke apart, death/doom, epic doom and trad doom are my favorite. Funeral is coming near after.

I voted just one sub genre, since I didn't expect you can actually vote more than that. :D Fail.

can you make a category called 'good doom'? If so, I'll take that one...

Post Re: Quick overview: what are your favourite Doom genres?

don't be so picky. I too listen to pretty much every style of Doom, but still, I have my favourite genres.

For example I do listen to trad doom, but if I have to be honest, most bands in this style are too Hard Rock-ish for me, too groovy, too gay (gay like in joyful, Dom! ;)), up-lifting and in retrospect I can't say I am what you can call "a trad doom fan". On the other hand, I'm far less picky with Funeral Doom.

BTW, do anybody here had knowledge of a band called Aamunkajo? I found out about that project yesterday and I am enjoying this immensely; excellent, unexpected suff!

Judging from the photo, that Aamunkajo guy is probably 15... :D I'll bookmark it anyway, though.
