But if this is a multiple choice question and I don't lose points for choosing the wrong option, I'll make an educated guess and say I'd probably become a fan of doom jazz.
It's easy to figure out!

Sludge:


Funeral doom:


Stoner metal:


Doom jazz (you want hear a lot about this genre, since it's kind of a strange combination.):

Don't let Blarobbarg scare you away with those. There's also traditional doom, which is basically Black Sabbath worship.

I'm listening to the sludge right now. If I end up liking any of this, I may have to change my name to missmetaltart. Or....an alter ego?

O_o

Okay Blaro, I've listened to all the tracks you posted, and I have to say the funeral doom is the most moving. It seriously sounds like death happened. Also, that raspy smoky voice puts the fun in the funeral, doesn't it?

The stoner metal and the sludge didn't really do it for me. Stoner metal is very headbangy. I do like the sound of the vocals but I'm not really loving the mechanic sound, which gives me the sensation of drowning or running. Sludge sounds like sludge...and that makes me uncomfortable. That doom jazz track feels a bit low key and anime soundtrack-like. There is definitely something haunting about it, though. Strange combo indeed, but I wish the jazzy bits were more upbeat.

Thanks for the exposure, I'm always up for something new!

On to Batlord's suggestions...

Edit: Batlord! Your final two suggestions were not available in my country. The first one went down well though. I might like it better while playing Silent Hill.

Wow Poptart! I'm impressed, not man noobs to those genres could just dive in and have an opinion (other than scared and confused).

And dang, I would not expect you to enjoy Evoken the most out of the songs I posted... funeral doom is even too much for me most of the time, but hey, if you liked it, good for you! Check out the Metal Recommendation thread for more!

And yeah, as Batty said, mine are definitely not beginner's doom, there's a lot more friendly bands in the genre. For instance, Torche. They're mostly just a fun hard rock with lots of hooks and guitar solos, but they're also sludge and stoner metal (or at least they were at one time). I love 'em to death, and when I want to listen to something that's not depressing, they're usually my first choice.

Don't be impressed! I'm here because I'm obsessed with music and open to listen to anything at least once! Shouldn't everyone on MB be like that?

Okay enough facetiousness. I like the Torche! They do have a very optimistic sound for a metal band! Reminds me of a way more interesting Foo Fighters. "Roaming" is its title, but I'm imagining a slightly urgent roam. Perhaps "proactively searching for" could describe the track better :P I like!!

"Healer" is good too. The band really sounds familiar, like maybe I've heard some sounds in a different country that are similar. I see what you mean by "not depressing"--the tone of these two tracks is uplifting somehow! Short and sweet, also. Those 8+ minute tracks did a number on me.

Rock on. I'll be looking into this band!

Wow, I'm flattered. *curtsy* If there is such a category, I'd like to nominate for you for "most agreeable troll"!

Oh, I so wish that was true.

Yeah, they have shades of grunge and other various 90's hard rock bands, but in the best way possible. Each of their releases is more fun and uplifting than the last. Their latest record (the one the first song comes from) rarely has a song that is longer than two minutes!

Anyway, glad you enjoyed them!
