Ulrich Schnauss - Nobody's Home comes to mind.. (it's got a sad melody to it)

 

I'll look thru my mp3's, I'm in a so-so mood right now aswell. Not too much but I'm in the mood for these types of tracks.

 

Edit: Just remembered some more, these ones are from a metal band:

 

Machine Head - Deafening Silence - click for youtube link, one of my alltime favourites from this band, pretty sad.

 

And Machine Head - The Burning Red - this one is smooth & easy.

pink floyd - wish you were here

 

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,

blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have you found? The same old fears.

Wish you were here.

Um, yeah most of what I ended up recommending wasnt really doom lol. Katatonia is good but there new stuff isnt doom. I dont know alot of hand Im kinda just getting into it honestly. I get doom/sludge confused cuz most times bands are both genres & they overlap some. I started out with nu-metal, then death/extreme metal far many years till recently. As far as doom/sludge bands, from what Ive heard so far:

 

Mindrot - well their 2 ablums are from 95/98 but r very good. Out of print though & needs to be remastered

 

Eyes Of Fire(formed by members of mindrot)

 

Acid Bath - great, original band. Very experimental. albums again are older though 94/96 I think. again needs remastering

 

Type O Negative - They're more gothic with doom influences but they're still around afaik

 

Cult Of Luna - Atmospheric Sludge/Progressive Metal/Post-Hardcore. These guys are awesome. Their newer stuff isnt as hard as the stuff in the vids.

Cult Of Luna - The Watchtower

 

Neurosis - Progressive Sludge/Post-Hardcore/Tribal/Ambient. Their 1st 2 albums are hardcore punk so Id recommend starting with Souls At Zero, then up to Given To the Rising. Also their album A Sun That Never Sets was also released as a dvd which has videos(very good, surreal, abstract, videos.

) for every song plus an exlusive release by their Dark ambient/experimental 'tribal' noise side project: Tribes Of Neurot.

 

Basically they use a process where they take the original mix of the album, use a tape recorder to record it again while playing it in an empty room, then re-record over & over up to 32 times I think. Its very weird & the only album I have by Tribes Of Neurot sadly. One Tribes Of Neurot album is made entirely out of insect noises & comes with special lp/cd so u can play them together & have a totally new experience. Also another Tribes Of Neurot album is actually 4 cds that are meant to be played at the same time on 4 different systems one in each direction. I think they have another album that is the exact same length as one of their Neurosis albums & is meant to be played along with it a the same time.

 

Anyway yeah Im just getting into this sub-genre so I dont have alot to offer & I dont have the hard drive space to test out other stuff atm. A good place to look for doom or any sub-genre of metal is to check the metal archives. metal archives You can search/browse by genre/alphabetically & if u click on an artists page it will show all their albums/lyrics/lyrical themes/current label/active-broken up/etc. Its very handy. Also ppl can review albums so if u want just browse by doom, then pick an artist, check their scores/reviews for their albums & go from there.
