    Thou's latest full-length release simply cements their status as Doom royalty, delivering their dynamic vision across a huge spread of top-tier music.
 cdimgIII: The Forest Within The Tree
    It's been a long time since Deadbird's last outing, but this latest full-length shows they haven't lost any of their powerful intensity or fearless delivery.

Synaptic Veil
    Still demonstrating more potential than actual progress, Romanian band Descend Into Despair's latest album teases rather than delivers.
 cdimgLe Mur Des Ombres
    Despite its misleading artwork, this debut album from Canadian Post-Metal/Post-Core band À L'Ombre D'Héméra qualifies as a diamond in the rough.

Silver (EP)
    Revisiting this early '00s EP reinforces the view that Jesu's first few releases remain essential Doom listening.
 cdimgThe Fae Queen
    Mixing raw Black/Doom with Ambient, US band Nemorensis nonetheless deliver that fairly standard package with a noticeable deftness and skill.
    A fun band, but frankly neither advancing the Bathory vibe nor bringing the Doom, Aeonless are somewhat marooned in '80s Black Metal mediocrity.
    Canterbury's Famyne do an excellent job of blending their disparate influences into a consistent debut full-length album.

News regarding the doom-metal site webhosting

Updated: 22/03/18
Well, it wasn't entirely painless, but has now successfully moved to what we anticipate will be a more stable and reliable hosting service. Apologies for any disruption over the last day or so while the migration was taking place.

Following the recent and rather disappointing non-service offered by our current hosting company, doom-metal will be moving to a different supplier imminently. No guarantees with such things, obviously, but we do expect it to be a straightforward and largely seamless transition, with only the forum temporarily unavailable for posting purposes only. This will prevent anyone accidentally publishing comments to the 'old' version - and hence losing them - while the internet catches up with where the 'new' version is.

Still available...

Please check the Merchandise page for up-to-date information on our top-quality exclusive Doom products.
