Born Banished Beaten Broken Buried
    Welcome to another beautifully dark palette of Ambient, Drone and Funeral Doom from German project The Cold View.
 cdimgBut a Walking Shadow
    A perfect bleak soundtrack for the dying of the light: Mistralth's latest Death/Doom full-length.

Doom Or Be Doomed : A French Tribute to Cathedral
    Showing both the importance of Cathedral and the relevance of the French underground/Doom scene, this is an amazing release on a number of levels.
 cdimgTumulus Part I: It Begins (EP)
    You might want to give new US band Advent Varic a try - their Black Metal/Stoner Doom hybrid is surprisingly brilliant.

In Misery... Never Comes Silence (Compilation)
    A somewhat bizarre choice for a re-release: a Dutch band that never really made it, and have little beyond a mediocre demo back catalogue to offer.
 cdimgKey To The Universe
    Mage's fourth album both gets them past the tragic loss of founder Ben Aucott and honours his memory with a masterclass in Stoner/Doom.
cdimgHigh Command
    Fans of Winter and Hellhammer should love this murky old-school Death/Doom debut by US band Cultic.
 cdimgLegacy (Reissue)
    A somewhat patchy Gothic/Doom album from Brazilians Eternal Sorrow, originally released in 2002 and now available with bonus tracks.
