Can you point me toward the best sludgiest doom/black metal about?



I like Electric Wizard. I like the band Dopethrone (named after then Electric Wizard album) and I like the heavier side of the Melvins. The song History of Bad Men in particular. Where should I go next?

I also like pretty much all sorts of drone. Including drone metal. Sunn 0)), Earth, Burzum, Boris (although they are a bit clean for me) etc. Im only mentioning this because I want my metal to be cathartic. Repetition and slowness is good.

Where should I go next? What should I listen to for that slow heavy sound?



Came in to post this.




big fan of these guys


They’ve been mentioned a fair bit in the heavy music thread but Bell Witch

Corrupted are also a great example of this


not sure i get the thread really, most of this is stoner/doom


I guess it’s more post heavy slow stuff?


Speaking of Harvey Milk, this is one of my favourite albums. Equally parts brutal and beautiful, it’s a concept album about a couple who go off to a cabin in the woods to talk about an unplanned pregnancy.


i quite enjoy harvey milk but for me the best thing they’ve ever done is that article where they talk about how shit all their albums are





second yob and harvey milk, they are the boys. nothing there to do with bm though.


Been listening to this for ages but I just cottoned onto what the concept of the album was :upside_down_face:


This is a beast of sludge/blackened/post metal

As is this.


I’m Going to Kill Myself is such a wonderfully hostile album!
