Golgotha got me all excited by promising to start a doom metal thread. Didn't happen, so here it is. Let's talk about doom metal.

For those who don't know, Doom metal is a genre which can be traced back to Black Sabbath and... ah heck just read the wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doom_metal

When it comes to the "classic" doom sound I actually don't listen too much to this kind, but of those bands I really enjoy Solitude Aeturnus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvAWVkxgysw)

I also like some of the stoner metal like Sleep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfzKIij37k4&feature=related)

And I really like their offshoot act Om, which goes into very hypnotic/ atmospheric territory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Orr0kf9RSK0)

I tend to listen a lot to the "funeral doom" bands, such as:

Skepticism (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0Ti4wMlLfs&feature=related)

Shape of Despair (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI-J_GHcYxg)

Tyranny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X03C5qF2mRY)

Another favorite band of mine is Empyrium who combined doom with folk and later made mainly neofolk music: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-zIM6_mYzE

I've kind of gotten less metal-ey over the years.  I still like some good Amon Amarth from time to time, and have found some decent Arabic metal on the youtubes.  But for the most part, I go a bit softer.  I prefer some of the older stuff, more punk-ish stuff like Iggy Pop and Dead Kennedys.  Though, Rammstein and KMFDM are still some of my favorite bands, but they are more Industrial and less Metal.

Lol yeah got lazy on the old doom metal thread thing. +1 for starting it!  I'm currently playing in a doom/sludge band. It connects me right away to Orthodoxy. (Strangely) I'm big into some Sleep and Om. I play bass. I would like to start a project similar to what Om is doing but Christian. Use Orthodox prayers as lyrics. If you live in the Raleigh NC area PM me.

Here are some things I like about it.  Overwhelming riffs. Riffs so big it strikes a sense of aw in you. Go to a show and it's probably some of the loudest music you'll listen too. But honestly nothing even compares to liturgy.  Wink  Stoner metal (similar to doom) is from the desert. Beards... Go to a stoner/doom show and everyone has a beard. There is also a very strong value for vintage. It's all about having big nasty 70s amps. Few modern amps can get that sweet warm tone. Doom and stoner metal is underground. Not many people know about it or its culture.

Heres some more sleep and Om.

This one takes me straight to the Middle East
http://youtu.be/QM22W_stXG4

Orthodox Russian Basso Profundo. I just see a connection.
http://youtu.be/6WpD2Cspn6g

A little bit more on Sleep and Om... Al Cisneros has used archangle icons on his albums. His most recent album in Om features an angle with the title God is Good. I found the reason for his Orthodox influences. (His music is NOT Orthodox btw. It is mixed with various other eastern religions so don't get confused!) In his previous band Sleep one of the founding members quit the band to become an ORTHODOX MONK! Justin Marler had a troubled childhood and was looking for answers and meet a monk in San Fran. He was a monk for seven years and for part of that time he was at St. Herman Monastery in Alaska.  

While Justin was a monk he started a new ministries called DEATH TO THE WORLD.
http://www.deathtotheworld.com/
 
Here is what the website says about them:
IN THE WILDERNESS of Northern California, Monks John and Damascene searched in hopes of finding a way to reach out to the Punk scene, which John had escaped. Seeing that the scene was full of kids that were sick of themselves and crippled by nihilism and despair, the Monks set out to give them the same hope that they found in Ancient Christianity. To do this, they decided to submit an article about Father Seraphim Rose in the popular magazine, Maximum Rock and Roll. When Father Damascene read over the magazine, he knew that they would never publish something like it. Struggling to show truth to the darkened subcultures, they tried again, but this time only placing an ad for Saint Hermans Brotherhood. They got a response from the editor, saying “What the @#*% is a Brotherhood?" and the Monks were told “We only run ads for music and 'zines*.” A light bulb went on and thus, Death to the World was born. The first issue was printed in the December of ’94 featuring a Monk holding a skull on cover. The hand-drawn bold letters across the top read “DEATH TO THE WORLD, The Last True Rebellion” and the back cover held the caption: “they hated me without a cause.” “These kids are sick of themselves," says Fr. Damascene, "and they feel out of place in this world. We try to open up to them the beauty of God's creation, and invite them to put to death ‘the passions,’ which is what we mean by ‘the world.’ God takes despair and turns it around to something positive. Selfish passions can then be redirected into love for God, as Mary Magdalene did. We talk about the idea of suffering because that is what the kids feel most strongly. We show that there can be meaning in suffering.”

The first issue, decorated with ancient icons and lives of martyrs inside, was advertised in Maximum Rock and Roll and brought letters from all around the world. People from Japan, Lithuania, and Ireland wanted to get their hands on this new radical magazine. The mailing list grew and grew and the ‘zine was distributed at punks shows and underground hangouts. It was photocopied and passed around by hundreds who wanted to read about the radical lives of the lovers of truth and the mystery of monasticism. It was estimated that at one time, there were 50,000 in circulation. Father Paisius, who is a Monk at the monastery, said, "This subculture is raucous and deeply disturbed because of their own pain. They see life as worthless. We want to show them an ideal that is worth their life. These are marginalized youth who are wounded, and Death to the World is meant to touch with a healing hand that wound." Writing and putting together issues 1-12, the Monks lived in the forests of Northern California in the midst of deer, bears, mountain lions, and rattlesnakes, translating and publishing wisdom from the holy fathers and mothers of ages past. The Monks and friends of the monastery also went to rock concerts and festivals, distributing Death to the World 'zines and t-shirts, together with icons and other books that the monastery published. The Monks did not put out any issues after issue 12, but they continued to share and hand out back orders of Death to the World.

Eight years later, in the gloomy cities of Southern California a group of kids, coming out of the remnants of a dying Protestant Punk scene were looking for some answers. Desiring something otherworldly, and seeing the efforts of Protestant bands crash in flames before them, they looked away from the churches they grew up in and were curious about the ascetic ways of their ancient Christian Fathers. In hope of finding answers, they looked to the Monks of Saint Herman Brotherhood. The monastery's Abbot, Father Gerasim, sent them copies of each issue of the 'zine that had inspired so many over the years, together with seven of the last copies of the book Youth of the Apocalypse. Reading through the pages of these ‘zines one by one, they found what they were looking for, a radical Christianity, one very different from what they grew up in. “Something had always kept me looking for the 'hardcore', no compromising Christianity, because I knew down inside that, if Jesus Christ is God, then Christianity had to be the most radical belief in the world.” All of a sudden a small Parish in the midst of Orange County was populated with punk-rockers adorned with tattoos and piercings. The Parish of Saint Barnabas quickly became known as a “repentant rock ‘n’ roll hospital.” John Valadez, a new writer, looking back explained, “We kept seeing more people come. People that we never thought would show up stood in line with us to receive Holy Baptism. We were greatly inspired by Death to the World. It was what we were missing, something far from the emptiness of the world, and it spoke to us on our level, in a way we could understand.” Making numerous pilgrimages to the wilderness of Northern California to live with the Monks for days at a time, the group would take back boxes of old ‘zines to pass out at punk shows and to give out to friends. On one of these pilgrimages Father Damascene, one of the original writers, said, “Maybe Saint Barnabas should start it up again.” On the drive back into Southern California, passing the billboards and skyscrapers, the need for a new Death to the World became more graphic in our minds. The punk scene, if anything, has gotten worse and the search for truth in these woeful times seems almost impossible. The group, in hopes of bringing back the truth to the youth of the apocalypse, compiled issue 13 and sent it back into the forest of Platina to be edited.

With the blessing of Father Damascene and Abbot Gerasim, the new generation of Death to the World was born, and the first issue after 9 years was printed and sent out to people across the United States and Europe. To this day, we continue to write a ‘zine to inspire Truth-seeking and soul-searching amidst the modern age of nihilism and despair, promoting the ancient principles of the last true rebellion -- being dead to this world and alive to the other world.

*a zine is a small magazine cut and pasted together and handphotocopied on a black and white xerox machine.

THIS IS THE KIND OF EVANGELISM I DIG! More people should know about this and support it. I'm just spreading the word!

I think John has left monasticism and is currently writing and playing music in Texas.

^ yah but what's the point?  Does it really move you?  How?  How do you see a correlation to the Divine Liturgy? 

Just trying to learn from your perspective.

hmm I'm not sure. I should clarify though. I try and look at it purely in a musical way. Some music is profoundly moving to me. Just the way certain chords and scales are played. I'm a pretty passionate person if you can't tell Tongue and I love mysticism. I get this way about other things too like running, or reading. Divine Liturgy is just that, Divine, and has no worldly comparison. I was in error to to try and compare it. I edited the above post so that I'm not making the comparison with the Church.

yah I definitely appreciated your musical capability in the post above. 

I would definitely be grateful if you thought about my questions & considered answering them.  This is definitely one of those things I don't "get"  lol

From my perspective, the best bands in the "harsh" metal genres are, under the surface, really not harsh at all. They are endued with deep romanticism, poetry, mysticism. They have stripped themselves of pop and rock conventions and hit at strange emotions that more conventional popular music rarely touches. The first time I heard Byzantine chant, I had already been listening to this kind of metal for a long time and I immediately felt an overlapping aesthetic which drew me in.

Yeah, hadn't thought about the similarities before.  The band included members of 60 Watt Shaman and Alabama Thunderp****.  Pete Campbell (drums in 60 Watt, guitar in Nimbus) has been playing drums with Place Of Skulls in the last couple of years so I still have hope that he comes around to Christianity.

Probably.  Dvorak hits some of the same places for me that metal does.  In fact, lots of metal guys are very well versed in classical music and lift lots of riffs from classical music.  Put some blast beats behind Stravinsky and you have yourself some heavy metal.  I don't know about other folks, but I didn't just wake up one day and like doom/stoner/thrash/death/whatever-sub-genre metal.  I worked into it.  The same can be said for jazz.  Most folks don't start with B****** Brew.  I should say that there is a lot of metal that I can't stand.  Lots of it is horrible, disgusting, or both.  Some of it is sublime.  I think when metal is at its best it shows order in chaos.  Some of it only showcases chaos.  While they were a post-metal group, ISIS is one of my favorites in this department.  Beautifully orchestrated noise in some cases.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svbBLvAe5Bg   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8w1e1wWkmk  And to a large degree I probably can't explain why I like certain things.  I deal with moderate anxiety issues and for some reason metal calms me down, believe it or not.

What Iconodule describes are my sentiments exactly. I don't have a way with words so it's hard for me to express things sometimes. I actually listen to more classical and jazz then metal. Metal is more of an outlet for me, like when I'm frustrated or need motivation. Similar to what KBN1 said. Have there been jazz and classical threads yet?  Smiley btw Isis is pretty sick!

You guys seen the metal monk? He's catholic though laugh

Wow I haven't previously checked out Place of Skulls! I am currently though. Cool! Nice Golgotha reference. I love to support bands with more positive Christian messages! I hope he does too. That is the problem with much of doom. So many lost people. I'm praying for their souls as well as mine! Lord, have mercy!

Not sure if you know this or not, but Place Of Skulls is Victor Griffin, the guitar player from Pentagram.  He really has become a light shining in dark places.  Extol is another band to check out.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zfv0NdhGjV8  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2L2sg1OvGI

I've never been into this Old Calendarist traditional Doom Metal with clean vocals. This genre just needs more guttural vocals in order to sound harsh enough.

I've never been a fan of doom metal, it just never interested me. I guess I don't really like the slow pace and gloomy mood of it, as I like the fast pace and happy mood of power metal. Smiley

Can someone recommend me some good funeral doom by lesser known bands...? I could search through the metal archives, but that'd take forever, and I'd probably listen to 20 bands I didn't like for every 1 I did...

I don't know how lesser known they are, but I really like Dolorian and Evoken.

Om is gonna release their next album July 24th. They posted the album cover featuring an Icon of John the baptist.




They also have posted this photo of an Ethiopian Monk from the looks of it, on their facebook.

 

I'm so giddy for this album release!!




I'm digging that Clorange btw.

I just had a change of heart re: Candlemass. I listened to Nightfall again and fell in love, even with the crazy falsetto vocals.

I prefer Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, but the point stands; their early material was their best.

I sometimes think I like the first vocalist better than Marcolin.

Yeah, their early stuff is best. That seems to be the general rule with metal bands- they release about 3-4 good albums and then either degenerate or change their sound completely. Exceptions are rare.

I'd like to draw everyone's attention to an excellent funeral doom band called Ahab. Their first album is themed around Moby Dick. (No, it is nothing like Mastodon's rather tepid Leviathan).

Here is a sample song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A7unzY2IgM

I've never really listened to any Funeral Doom but I really like the name of the band. A lot better than various Tolkied-themed names.

Some fine bands I've come across recently, all working somewhere on the traditional doom spectrum: The Wounded Kings, Pallbearer, and Windhand.

They're good! I just love the fact that there is doom metal in Nashville.

That album almost single handedly rekindled my interest in metal.
