I have been listening to a lot of doom recently, so I figured I would make a thread for it.
Most of my recent listening has been more atmospheric black/death-doom and funeral doom, such as Illimitable Dolor, The Slow Death, and Usnea. There are really some figurative gems, such as Aeolian Winds, Arcana Coelestia, Forlet Sires, and Svartmálm in these genres.
OM is amazing - Advaitic Songs is what turned me on to them. The Sciences by Sleep is also a favorite. I'm way late to the drone party, but the new album by SunnO))), Life Metal, is pretty great. Haven't gotten into the first track much, but the rest of it is just awesome, IMO. Check out Mirror Reaper by Bell Witch and anything by Disembowelment.

Christian drone: - Flock of Crows - "On the Throne" and "En Kriger" ^ For "En Kriger", my favorite album, by far, is "All Your Abominations". The other stuff is more experimental -- "All Your Abominations" is VERY slow, drudging music
Christian stoner doom: - Dustt -- also does faster-paced stoner rock - Cult of Divine Mercy -- only this album. All other releases are noise
Christian black/doom: - Exalted Saviour - Rotting Serpent -- "Manitou" is secular, all other albums are Christian - Heztael -- As far as I know, Heztael's releases are Christian, but since the project became inactive, the artist no longer identifies as Christian.
fire indeed! Never heard of many of these bands, but will work my way through them. Already loving Cult of Divine Mercy, although I'm not sure what to think about the album cover. Flock of Crows is a cool find as well.
Btw I just want to mention quick, Crypt Sermon are not Christian. I think you, Ben, know this. But for some reason, I've seen several other people with this misconception that they're a Christian band. They're not -- they even have some blasphemous lyrics.
Transcending Obscurity has many good doom bands on the roster.
Transcending Obscurity has a lot of good bands period. I snapped up a bunch of their releases when they had a Name Your Price sale. And don't forget their Indian/Asian sublabel, which has some really good bands. My favorite thing about the label is that they put the genre of the band in the album title on Bandcamp. That way I know right off the bat if I want to give it a shot or not.
A fan of Julien Baker. Julien is love. Julien is life. Black metal is pretty good too.
Are there more Christian bands that have that Southern stoner metal sound like Starchild's S/T or Down - NOLA (from the secular scene)? Mid-paced, heavy as all get out, perfect for driving with the windows down on a humid one-hundred degree day in the Southland kinda stuff.
progton777: Last year Righteoss Wrath posted a song on his facebook page, i am addicted to that song, and even the quality of the production is not that good its kind of a haunting song, with some furious melodic riffs.

nocturnaliridescence: I wonder what black metal with just bass and no normal guitars would sound like. I know I have other obligations, but then I just get these sporadic ideas in my head.

Bartimaeus: Isn't that sort of what death therapy does, but with death metal? I'd be interested to *hear* how it sounds.

nocturnaliridescence: It turns out that yeah, there are a few projects that do this already. Didn't know there was a Christian one! The ideas I had sounded different though, a bit more "minimalistic". We'll see if the ideas end up sucking or not!

julienbakerfan: nocturnaliridescence I've seen quite a few of these projects on Bandcamp, but I always skipped past them because I didn't like the concept. I think there's a dinosaur-themed one that I can't remember off the top of my head. It may be death/doom.

nocturnaliridescence: Are you thinking of Thecodontion? (Secular band.) According to MA their lyrical themes are "Prehistory, Fossils, Paleontology"

julienbakerfan: I think I am thinking of Thecodontion, but I couldn't remember how it was spelled.

thevociferator: just got back from a christian metalcore show that was a part of Exodo Fest and I got to say I was a bit disappointed with the crowd. There were like these two older guys in the middle of the pit just taking videos of the show with their phone.

julienbakerfan: Shows are happening? With pits?
Jul 24, 2020 19:53:17 GMT -6
nocturnaliridescence: Yeah I thought Exodo Fest was all digital/livestreaming this year

avjr: I know concerts are happening in other states in America. There are no concerts in California. Sadly.

julienbakerfan: Concerts are happening in Arkansas, but I'm not going. I live in a hotspot at the moment.

nocturnaliridescence: It's going to be awkward if I ever reach a point where I do concerts. I have never been to a concert. I don't normally watch concert footage. I have very little idea what the "concert experience" is like.
