2000's Favorite Doom Albums

Candlemass: Candlemass: Reformation of the band with its most popular singer, for one album before band members realized they still hated him.

Coffins: Buried Death: Japanese death/doom band sounds like a heavily medicated Celtic Frost.

Grand Magus: Iron Will: The best album from 2008 is a traditional doom metal album.

Heaven and Hell: The Devil You Know: The second Black Sabbath lineup reincarnated can still bring the doom.

High on Fire: Death is this Communion: Sludgy, dirty doom with thrash metal influences from a former member of Sleep.

Novembers Doom: The Novella Reservoir: Sullen, dreary doom metal from Chicago giants.

Reverend Bizarre: II-Crush the Insects: Trad doom throwbacks speed things up early then revert to agonizingly slow, long dirges.

Swallow the Sun: The Morning Never Came: Eerily beautiful but leaves the listener with a sense of dread and hopeless isolation.

Syrach: Days of Wrath: Norwegian doom metal that is catchy, haunting, and terrifying.

The Gates of Slumber: Conqueror: Great traditional doom metal that sounds like Sabbath and Candlemass in a blender.
