Thanks klamerin for your comprehensive list.

A question, is it widely accepted in metal community that this kind of music is a subgenre of Doom Metal? or they consider it as a genre by it self?

Is it the doom metal fans label any slow, heavy metal music a subgenere of Doom Metal?

Also, is it only with doom metal that there are so many subgenres, or is it the case with Death, Black...etc?


Well, there is drone/doom and there is pure drone. The main difference is that if it is heavily guitar based it is drone/doom (though there can be other influences thrown in there - black metal is now common, sludge, noise, ambient, etc) What I've listed is all drone/doom (or at least I consider it to be=)

As for pure drone - any music that is made of sustained notes is drone, so you can have very, very light drone out of just about any kind of music.

But I cannot think of any other type of drone metal other than drone/doom (in essence).

As for you other questions - they are a bit tough and agreement cannot be reached on these topics. In theory you can combine any major genre with other genres and get a sub-genre, but doom metal is (I think) the only one where it makes sense over such wide variety of genres.

Slow metal is not always doom, but I cannot really put the essential part that makes it doom into words (you need to have relatively thick guitars, you need to have a certain atmosphere and a general feeling, but the lines are too blurry=). In general, if you say that doom metal is "the slow" section of any metal genre you won't be too far away from the truth=)))

This is a nodal point, and was the cause of many debates, some of them not so friendly!

I tend to like anything heavy and slow, and I consider myself as a rather exclusive doom fan; so yes, anything slow can be safely described at least as "doomy". Those doomy moments, in any Black of Death metal song are the ones that captivate me because I find in them the aesthetics I like.
If now the music resorts more to doomy aesthetics than to any others, I would tend to agree it's a doom subgenre. :)

Crushing electro Sludge/ deathcore (?) with a strong misanthropic urban feel... Tasty and a bit over the top!

Good Funeral Doom; mournfully epic, a bit like The Howling Void, but bleaker and slower... :P

edit: nothing like THV - and the drumming as well as some riffs are rather bland... :O

For an instant, I was tempted to suggest this artist in the Bleak Chicks thread, but although some accents in there convey the dark feelings we like, it's definitly too poppy. What doesn't make it a bad project either...
