Default Drone Doom

Who here's into this?

I brief description from Wikipedia that sums up the sub genre better than I could...

Quote:
Drone doom (also known as drone metal) is a style of doom metal that is largely defined by drones; notes or chords that are sustained and repeated throughout a piece of music. Typically, the electric guitar is performed with large amounts of reverb and feedback while vocals, if present, are usually growled or screamed. Songs are often very long and lack beat or rhythm in the traditional sense. Drone doom is generally influenced by drone music, noise music and minimalist music.The style emerged in the early 1990s and was pioneered by Earth, Boris and Sunn O)))
So yeah, other than the so-called 'big three', who are your favourites? SHARE THE GOODS.

Hyatari, KTL, Sink, Locrian, The Angelic Process, AUN, Menace Ruine, This Will Destroy You, Bunkur, Nadja, ASVA and Otesanek are all great.

I dl'd Black One by Sunn O))) recently, it's almost in a purely noisy/sound sample rock arena, but It Took the Night to Believe is one killer ass song. I need to get through the whole album, but it's hella noisy and hella atmospheric.

How are the other two? I'm new to the genre but i love sludgy, doomy metal so i'd like to get at least into them if they're good.

I was going to mention Nadja and The Angelic Process as well. I recommend Sundrips too, but they're more of an ambient/psychedelic drone sound. If anything, just hunt around the last.fm tag for "Drone Doom".

They've got like seven albums, I'd say you should definitely invest some time in Black One, very much worth it. Monoliths & Dimensions is amazing too, it's their newest release. White2 and Void are also good, as is Altar, the collaboration with Boris.

This Will Destroy You are amazing. I prefer their older post-rock stuff but I fell asleep to Tunnel Blanket last night, and it is fantastic as well.

Libations of Samhain is one of my top drone doom tracks ever. Also love The Angelic Process and This Will Destroy You. Also Bunkur's 'Bludegon', I've got that on cd and mutli-lp format. The LP sounds better, but I feel like having to switch sides and stuff loses some of the atmosphere.

Bit more on the experimental side of things, but I highly recommend Stalaggh. Really out there, bleak doom stuff, replete with a mythos involving one of the audio engineers killing himself during production and the group using actual mental patients for vocals. It's ridiculous, but sounds pretty awesome.

I love Earth's The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull for being such a gorgeous drone album with minimal to no use of distortion. Very organic sounding yet still chock full o' doom.

I simply must look into this.

It some ridiculous stuff. I don't know how much of the rumors relating to people killing themselves while it's being recorded and mental patients doing the vocals are true, but it definitely sets you in the right mindset for listening to the stuff. It's very dark and pretty creepy ****.

Shit's intense, I'll give you that. Requires further listening to establish whether I'll be able to glean any enjoyment out of it.
