Stoner/ Doom Metal Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Guys, guys. I've been listening to OM for the last two days pretty much straight and I just can NOT decide if I like them or not. I really want to... but I'm not sure. I feel like if I was really stoned, maybe? But... I might also just fall asleep in that case.

I've been uploading my collection to Discogs and realized my hand-me-down Sabbath albums are pretty beat to shit, so I'm in need of upgrading.  Can anyone recommend some pressings of the first four albums to look out for?  Any to avoid?

 

Olive labeled Warner Bros. except for Paranoid. Or the Vertigo Swirls (more expensive than the others I listed.)

Which album(s) are you listening to? I really dig Om. But I'm a drummer, and I tend to listen in more to the bass and drums anyway.

I really dig Variations On A Theme, it's similar enough to Sleep that I think it's a stellar album. I've listened to Pilgrimage a couple times and Advaitic Songs some too, those are the ones that I can't really decide on.

does anyone have some sites/distros to grab reasonably priced stoner/ doom stuff in the US?  a lot of these things seem to be imports and its tough to spend 50 including shipping for a record.  

 

i have used all that is heavy many times and they have been great but not through their own fault do not carry every single title.

Still haven't listened to it all the way through, but I liked the first half that I have heard. Might pick it up tomorrow if the local shop has it in stock. 

 

 

That said, the reason I'm bumping this: Is there a good website for stoner / doom / drone / metal in general that has reviews or just news for upcoming releases and whatnot?

I use these few for downloads or things to check out or reviews, etc.
