Default Traditional doom metal primer.

Traditional doom metal is a style of music that was first started around the early 70s and, in my opinion, is metal in its purest form.The music is typically mid-paced to slow in tempo and often bluesy, sometimes with a bit of groove while remaining heavy.Traditional doom metal differs from other forms of doom metal in that it is more riff oriented and typically makes more use of clean vocals.


Important Bands

Black Sabbath
Pentagram
Count Raven
Reverend Bizarre
St.Vitus
Witchfinder General
Cathedral
Candlemass
Trouble

Uploads and a more in depth band list coming soon. If you have bands and uploads to add to the list please feel free.

I never thought candlemass was Taditional Doom. I always thought of them as a Funeral Doom band, but they do get mid paced alot now that I think about it.

They're quite diverse. Some of the stuff is more traditional and some of it simply isn't. I'm not quite sure what I'd call them myself but most people seem to lump them in with traditional doom, so it seemed appropriate to list them.

My computer is being slow but I'll have some stuff up by the end of the night from various bands.

All Souls' Day - Into The Mourning
Kind of a modernized semi-traditional style with some prog elements. You'll enjoy it.

Trouble - Psalm 9
Pass: netzona.info

Please be patient, it can take a bit for it to generate a link.


I'm digging that Witchcraft track. Can someone upload me some stuff?

This sounds very early Sabbath and almost definitely a little cheesy, but here goes a Pagan Altar song; Lords of Hypocrisy.
