Getting that Electric Wizard and Earth album now, I'll give them a listen at work and put up reviews when I get home.

I haven't dabbled much in stoner/doom type bands, only recently started looking at the genre(s) and exploring it to see what I'll like. Definitely a cool genre(s) so far.

I assume the EW album you're referring to is Dopethrone, yes?

Wow, does everyone agree that Dopesmoker is at least a good album? Batty, I was shocked to see you here, but then I made the connection with the low-rent metal... I don't think I've seen this on this site before. Not even Reign In Blood or a Black Sabbath album has this kind of effect.

Oh and @Contrived, I spent a great deal of time researching stoner doom bands recently, and if you're looking for heaviness, there's always Acid King. I don't like the singer, but I think you may like her. They are pure fuzz from start to finish.

I personally prefer their s/t, I like the more spaced out tone of it. Dopethrone has the psychadelic thing, but with a little more menace to it. I'd say Electric Wizard is more of a feel good album, it has a nice swing to the tracks and Dopethrone is more of a brooding stoned album, depends what you're in the mood for.

The bands I was referring to on the traditional doom side of things are Trouble and Candlemass, I've listened to a lot more of them over the years than EW. Although EW are definitely one of the best, they wouldn't come far behind those other two for me.

Trad doom is more dramatic than stoner stuff, usually not as drony and the tracks usually aren't as long. Here's some good introductory ones by each, then I'd suggest checking out that particular album if you dig them. Also for Candlemass, and I'm in the minority on this, check out From the 13th Sun, fantastic and underrated and totally different from what I have here.

Seriously bro, for a long time I listened exclusively to doom, it was the first subgenre of metal I got really into. By all means let me know what you're feeling and I can direct you towards some excellent sub-subgenres.

There I go looking like an ******* again.

Time to Die, actually. Lists as their newest, and while I usually don't dabble in bands that appear to worship Satan by the look of song titles, I'm kind of getting over that as I don't consider myself Christian anymore, but I am not Atheist and I believe in God, Heaven and Hell, I still pray and such. But I don't identify as Christian, no sir.

Anyway, I didn't see that EW album Dopethrone on iTunes. Worth a listen?

I wouldn't say you look like an a-hole.

And, I think for Doom/Stoner bands, I would like heavy/fuzzy, more or less clean sung but I dig the sort of sing/growl approach too. I'd say recommend whatever. I am still working through the bands you pm'ed me, too.

Definitely worth a listen, it's their best IMO. Time to Die is ****ing great though and would be a good starting point for them, as would their s/t and Come My Fanatics....
