Doom Metal

Doom metal can be described with a single word -- slow. Ponderous, ultra-heavy riffing and (usually) melodic vocals dominate this form of metal. Black Sabbath are, of course, the fathers of metal in general, but their early work concentrated on slow riffing and thus is the primary influence on doom metal bands. Candlemass deserves mention for rejuvenating the genre in the eighties, and their first four albums are regarded as classics in the field. Recent subgenres include funeral doom and drone, both of which slow down the pace even more.
