Stoner/ Doom Metal Discussion Thread

I always associate stoner and sludge rock together.  Here are some recommendations off the top of my head from the sludgy, stoner side are :


Harvey Milk - A Small Touch of Human Kindness


Their whole catalogue is solid, except maybe The Pleaser.  A Small Touch is my favorite.


Conan - Horseback Battle Hammer

Eagle Twin - Either album is good

Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction

aSg - Blood Drive (This probably fits between stoner rock and hard rock.  It grew on my a ton).


Early Baroness, Mastodon and Intronaut are all on the sludgy side of things.


Sleep and the post-Sleep projects (High on Fire, Om) are all good for different reasons.  New Om is really droney, but I dig it.


Kylesa and Black Tusk are rad.  I think sludgy punk music is a better way to describe them though.


The only doom I can think of recommending right now is is Loss - Despond.  That album is incredible.

Anyone ever listen to Purple Mercy? The self titled LP is pretty much perfect. Not typical stoner/doom stuff but there are elements, especially in songs like Black Winds of the Underworld. Unfortunately for my liking they went really psych on their next record.

I think the only band I listen to that's considered doom metal is Acid Bath.  I've been listening to them since high school but have never branched out much in the genre to other bands.  I like Dax Riggs a lot.  Agents of Oblivion, his solo stuff, it's all pretty good in my book.
