Candlemass’ Nightfall

I only recently discovered “Doom Metal” and I like it a lot.  This music is too epic to be depressing.

A bit of a description from Wikipedia:

Doom metal is an extreme form of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much “thicker” or “heavier” sound than other metal genres. Both the music and the lyrics intend to evoke a sense of despair, dread, and impending doom.

This album cover for Candlemass’ Nightfall (a well known example of the genre) is incredible:

Thomas Cole's painting "Old Age" from The Voyage of Life was used for the album cover.

Anyway, give this a listen to someday. The whole album is on Youtube.

Enjoy!
