Worship

This German outfit was a true underground doom metal phenomenon, releasing a cult demo by the name of Last Tape Before Doomsday (later re-released on vinyl and CD, with the name changed to Last Vinyl ... and Last CD ... as appropriate) in 1999 as well as several exceedingly rare splits and singles, with their initial breakup coming in 2001 after founder/vocalist "Mad Max" Varnier jumped off a bridge to his death. Several years later the other half of the original duo (guitarist Daniel Pharos) put a new version of the band and as such released Dooom (yep, with three o's) in 2007. This is true, classic funeral doom, on par with the Thergothons and Esoterics of the world, featuring impossibly slow riffing, minimal percussion, distant death growls, and of course an overbearing feeling of despair and hopelessness. Funeral doom in general plays to a very small, select audience, and Dooom is for that very audience and no one else (meaning, if you're not into funeral doom, you won't like this, and if you are, you will).
