Post Favourite doom metal bands
I've been on a Draconian kick for a couple days. It got me wanting to explore the doom metal genre even more. There's already quite a few doom bands that I like, but I was wondering, what are some of your favourites? I could use a few new recommendations to check out. Thanks in advance! :)

I do like the operatic-style female vocals, but they are not essential.

My favorite "newer" doom bands are Procession and Apostle of Solitude, both in the traditional doom sub genre.
Of the classic bands, Saint Vitus, Candlemass, Trouble, and My Dying Bride to name a few

Mongoloid gets bonus points for being the only other to mention the mighty Blood Farmers. The greatest US Doom album ever released, imo. Hell, I hold it high above many Euro Doom albums as well. Fucking legendary stuff.

Lots of great recommendations here :beer:

I'm a big fan of funeral and death doom metal, but I know close to nothing about the more traditional stuff, save for some absolute classics. I'll be checking out some of the stuff listed here that I haven't heard yet.
