A-Z Doom, Gothic & Stoner Metal Book
|Laboured, mournful and crushingly heavy. The anaesthetising, sloth like riffs of Doom Metal, the bong fuelled lazy retro Rock that is Stoner and the melancholy strains of Gothic Metal- it's all here. Rooted in ancient instigators such as Pentagram, Atomic Rooster and the mightiest of the mighty- Black Sabbath, Doom has defied all the odds to spawn a huge global fanbase. The impact of Doom can be felt not only in the respect afforded to faithful cult acts such as The Obsessed and Trouble but in burgeoning enormity of both the Black Sabbath legend and sheer scale of album sales. The rude health of those that have been handed on the flame, the new breed such as My Dying Bride, Cathedral, Paradise Lost, November's Doom and Candlemass, has morphed the genre into one of their own making. In recent years Doom has taken a left turn into the desert wastelands of America and returned as Stoner. Bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Alabama Thunderpussy, Ironboss and hundreds of others pulling in legions of fans.|
The Europeans meantime added Electronica into the blend to create Darkwave and hordes of Metal bands discovered that adding a female vocalist, a Gothic touch and the introduction of avant garde instrumentation lent a whole new lease of life. Numerous artists placed firmly in genres such as Death Metal and Black Metal readily experiment with Doom and Gothic whilst groundbreaking artists such as Rain Fell Within and Autumn's Tears lend the whole scene ongoing re-invigoration. Each and every band is included with an enormous wealth of historical detail and full global discography. From the full, weighty and unedited account of Black Sabbath's tortured history and spanning Stoner, Gothic and Darkwave this book is the first to chronicle the underground world wide phenomena that is Doom.
