    I had a little look and there was not a thread dedicated to the slow, drone-like greatness that is stoner doom and it's affiliated genres.

    So, post your favourite stoner doom songs/bands and why, and share bands that other fans may not have heard of, etc etc. Basically a little hub for those of us that enjoy music with guitar tones that are the polar opposite of djent.
    Also, if you don't like doom and you're coming in to say why you think it's shit, don't bother. I don't want this thread to turn in to a shitstorm.

    For me, Sleep is my favourite band. Pretty well known, but honestly, nothing beats Dopesmoker for me. Such a brilliant song/album.
    That, and Electric Wizard. I love Witchcult Today and Dopethrone, such excellent albums.

    Stoner/doom is one of my absolute favorite styles of music. A thread like this is long overdue here!

    I'll post a lot more later, but right now, I'll just leave this track hear that Bongripper did with Winters in Osaka. Its so fucking crushing and heacy

    spawnofthesith - I hadn't heard that song! So good! Bongripper are one of the many doom bands that deserve more exposure. And I definitely agree that this site needed a thread like this.

    hairychris - That Sleep rehearsal video is so good, I've watched it way too many times haha. Al Cisneros has said he's given up the magic Sleep herb, but the videos/interviews from their recent run of festivals tell me otherwise, haha.

    One thing I've never understood, is how Al can have smoked that much weed in his life, yet still hold his powerful, roaring notes for like 30 seconds at a time.

    Off topic, since not necessarily doom, but any Om fans?

    I love me some doom metal. It's surprising there hasn't been a thread dedicated to this genre earlier.

    Anyone here listen to Thou? If not, I highly recommend Summit and Tyrant. They are both awesome albums.

    I know I post this band a lot but they are one of the best stoner/doom bands I've ever heard
