Funeral Circle – Funeral Circle (2013)

If you followed my “Exploring Doom” posts from almost 2 years ago (and I know you did) you know I only fairly recently started to really dig in to the doom world, so in 2013, while I may have skimmed the... Continue Reading →

Cianide – The Dying Truth (1992)

Here’s a little gem from way back in 1992, the year after many consider to be one of the best years of metal. That’s up for debate but what isn’t is the crushing magnitude of this album. Taking the typical... Continue Reading →

Jex Thoth – Blood Moon Rise (2013)

Well, it’s November so we might as well get this month started with some doom. Jex Thoth are yet another band whose I’ve heard of but haven’t actually heard before. Thankfully my buddy shared their 2013 album with me and... Continue Reading →

Usurper – Diabolosis (1995)

I’m kind of surprised Usurper hasn’t crossed my path before. They were bringing the blackened metal in the states back in the early to mid 90′s when not that many bands in America were. Not to mention they have members... Continue Reading →

Misery’s Omen – Hope Dies (2008)

I forget if Misery’s Omen was a recommendation or something I dug up while perusing the interwebs but however they came into my life, I’m grateful. If you haven’t been paying attention, Australia has a fucking crushing extreme metal scene... Continue Reading →

Solstice – Lamentations (1994)

If you read me (almost) daily posts you may recall some time ago I was exploring the doom metal genre. Based on the Decibel Magazine special issue featuring the “100 Greatest Doom Metal Albums” I figured it would be a good... Continue Reading →

Yearning – Evershade (2003)

I know I get caught up in all the various styles of black metal and this blog has very much become the obscure black metal corner. I always meant to use this blog as a sounding board for all types... Continue Reading →

40 Watt Sun – The Inside Room (2011)

For this final installment of my doom metal exploration journey I was going to post about Candlemass’ Epicus Doomicus Metallicus but I sort of feel like that’s a staple of the genre and I’ve listened to it numerous times. Instead... Continue Reading →

Trouble – Psalm 9 (1984)

Decibel has this one ranked as the number 5 best doom metal album of all time and it was that list that originally sent me on this exploration. I dug the previous Trouble album I explored so I was curious... Continue Reading →
