  • I wanted to learn more about 'doom' music...

    ...so I figured I'd check out that band with an unpronounceable logo at the end of their name. I feel without any context this was a mistake.

    that would fall into the Drone category.



    and yes, you need to witness it live.



    "Domkirke" is probably THE live album to check out by them. listen to Monoliths & Dimensions really loud as well.

      Just reading a news article on them








      If you thought the My Bloody Valentine reunion gigs were loud, then you clearly haven't heard these California doom merchants at their bowel-loosening best.



      Do these guys ever play shows in the UK? They look/sound crazy, I feel I need to see them play

                This genre is confusing, so generally any metal band with lots of fuzz and a slow tempo is doom?



                Are Fu Manchu doom? I do love the Fu

                  Fu Manchu are not Doom, they're most definitely stoner.

                        that would be stoner / desert rock variant.



                        try listening to the following:



                        Red Fang

                        Bardo Pond's earlier albums ("Bufo Alvarius, Amen" to "Amanita")

                        Yawning Man

                        Fatso Jackson

                        Clutch

                        Dead Meadow

                        Nebula

                        Unida

                        Kyuss















                        i also recommend you checking out a documentary called "Such Hawks Such Hounds" before you venture that much further, that would be a great place to start. it's streaming on Youtube, the full thing, i recommend it to you and to anyone.

                              they are loud, they are awesome. but depending on the track/album, you'll get doom, sludge, stoner, shoegaze and other subgenres.
