The slowest, sludgiest, and darkest of all Hardcore flavors. BPMS ranging generally 140 and below, making it the slowest Hardcore genre. Stompy kicks, tons of reverb, long droning sounds and cinematic/atmospheric elements. The trademark TR-909 kickdrum is used differently than in other hardcore genres: it usually employs less distortion, and less decay. However, a reverb effect is added on it sometimes. Offbeat cymbals are usual. The atmosphere of the tracks is often similar to industrial music, doom metal and dark ambient. Somber and contemplative while evoking a post-apocalyptic, hopeless, and terrifying atmosphere.

Just started this list. Feel free to weigh in and send in some suggestions on some of the essentials of the genre.
