French female-fronted Stoner Doom. Nothing special, but it's slow and mournful, which is good per se. And it's free...

English Dope Smoker's discography is offered for free. it's strip-down to the basics: fuzz, fat riffs, drone, reverb, and some interesting ethereal juvenile vocals. It's rather addictive. :D

Ultra bleak, amateurish bedroom FD; still, its sobriety makes it bearable:

And this good news: Altars of Grief's Iris, this excellent death doom album, is now offered for free by Hyponic Dirge, as it is their habit with the digital versions of their releases:

I have this on tape, initially I was quite fond of it, but after the second demo they recently released I'm beginning to doubt if the band has any merit at all...

What do mean exactly? That both demos sound very much alike?

Maybe he has realised they are not that good after all? :)

I'm not exactly sure. Maybe that the second demo confirmed my lingering suspicion that the first one does not really deserve my excitement, call it sobering if you like=)

I totally know what you mean, I've fallen out with several bands in this way. Sometimes I feel on a fresh debut you feel the band, but also feel their potential, and that is what excites you. Then they progress further and all the potential is wasted in some way. Of course, sometimes it goes the other way - those are always special moments.

Post Re: Free Downloadable Doom Albums

Doom/Heavy Psychedelic act Gorazde has all of its albums (five plus one EP) available for free download at: http://www.gorazde.bandcamp.com
Early material (2010-2011) has a dark blues/doom rock kind of feel, later releases get heavier and moodier...
2016: https://gorazde.bandcamp.com/album/the-catechism
2018: https://gorazde.bandcamp.com/album/our-sleeping-skin

Hope some find interest in this...

Speaking of vintage female-fronted doomy hard rock, Here's Moon Coven, coming from the same manufacturing plant than the billion of other projects shaped from the exact same recipe. They do manage to sound good now and then, when they're not downright insipid.

It's true that I'm somehow not really convinced by Moon Coven.. Maybe I missed the good bits?

Deathbell, however, sounds already much better.

it's a female vocalist, right? But if you compare them with Alcest... now I'm wondering....

To me, the singer's gender apart, it sounds like a regular female-fronted retro doom project...


I know this is from two years ago, but listening back to Ghost Witch, it is very clear that the vocals are male. :p It's definitely influenced by Windhand, though. The first track is pretty much a direct tribute to the opening song of Windhand's Soma album. I do get a bit of an Alcest/Have a Nice Life vibe from the vocals and depressive atmosphere.

Deathbell are one of the better bands to do occult doom with female vocals, they are a lot more funereal and depressive than the bands they are typically compared to (Windhand, Haunted, Hela, etc).

A bandcamp page that compiles a series of Doom bands by country: France, Germany, South Africa, Sweden etc...; it's definitely worth a check! (

It's not pure doom, but this is a quite nice doomy instrumental album, that is not only free, but paying is discouraged ("Do not pay a cent for this album. This is my (Enohx) gift to the world.")

Atmo doom from Sweden, lots of cello lines for the lovers of cello lines in their doom.
