Doom Metal Style Overview
Doom Metal Music Description
In this genre, slow-burning electric guitars crunch walls of thick and heavy riffs, played sostenuto, creating effects of darkness, evil, or misery. Sometimes combined with the sounds of psychedelic rock, noise or drone genres, Doom Metal sounds exactly as its title suggests: with or without harsh vocals, there is always a sense of impending doom, an ominous malaise or menace, in its undertow. Doom Metal presents itself as a high art form of heavy metal.
