Welcome to www.doom-metal.com, *the* place on the net for information and discussion about doom metal in all its forms.
We bring you the latest news from the doom world, reviews of new albums, obscure demos, and classics, interviews, and a very active forum community.|
The website has been in existence in different forms since the beginning of the decade, and has seen many staff members and designs come and go. Doom-metal.com first came into being as a merger of The Doom-metal Netguide (previously maintained by Kurt de Meulemeester) and the #Doom-metal homepage (previously maintained by Aldo Quispel). Aldo Quispel and John Riendeau, helped by Curt and Kurt, set up the website in its first incarnation. Aldo continued to be the main driving force behind the website until early 2007.
After several longer periods of inactivity and internal reorganisations, it was decided that doom-metal.com needed a major overhaul. Aldo resigned as the manager and webmaster, and after a spell with Arnstein Pettersen at the helm, the site was subsequently maintained under the leadership of Giovanni Guarnieri, Bertrand Marchal and Georgia Weidenhof, with the website itself updated and redesigned by Stijn van Cauter. In 2013, Dominik Sonders and Mike Liassides joined the senior staff team, and the following April Bertrand retired as site editor after several years of constant hard work. That role is now handled by Mike.
We hope you will enjoy the current version of the website, and we welcome you into the community.
