Of Spire & Throne

http://ofspireandthrone.bandcamp.com/album/the-trial-of-failure

Had never heard of these guys before. Fucking nice and crushing funeral doom. Apparently they only have a demo and this EP so far. Can't wait to hear more from them.

Both were pretty boring, Spire and Throne especially so. I didn't hear any "funeral" in it either.

Well I consider really slow doom to be funeral doom. What would be a more accurate band to call funeral doom? I know Sunn calls themselves that, but I consider them to just be drone.

Anyway, do you also find Worship boring? That's another similar sounding band that I've been getting into.

Esoteric not as much, but they're just so good and blend many styles that they count enough. Lots of people consider Asunder to be funeral doom as well.

Yeah, but I thought they were similar to Asunder in some ways. Tongue

I'm listening to a Worship cd right now, but I'll listen to those tracks when it's done. I could use some more doom in my collection. To be honest, I've heard Esoteric before but I haven't given them much of a chance. Never actually listened to a full album by them.

Worship's pretty good.

Oh yeah and Corrupted gets called a lot of things...mainly doom drone and crust...but sometimes funeral too. They're awesome, as you know.

Not getting heavily into Esoteric may be the biggest mistake of your life. They're fucking excellent. Peep the youtube link with a song from their album due out next month in the Esoteric thread I made here.

Speaking of Corrupted, didn't they get that 3 hour long album recorded minus vocals and then the vocalist split or something?

I hadn't heard anything about it, though I was actually thinking about it the other day wondering if it was even still happening. Sucks if true.

Well I liked the songs you posted. I suppose Esoteric was my favorite of the bunch.

So... funeral doom is the lighter more somber type stuff? I was led to believe it was the slower heavier stuff. Bah.

Funeral doom is a mix of doom and death metal.

I guess I'll take this opportunity to say

if you haven't checked out the Southern Lords release of a band called Seven Sisters of Sleep, you're fucking up big time. This is how sludge should be. I'm tired of people only caring about the stoner metal side or post metal side of "sludge". Not to say I don't like my Baroness or Neurosis.

Was pretty awesome, bro. I prefer that kind of sound to the stoner or post styles.

And from there I got linked to Serpent Venom which is also pretty bad ass.

Sludge is best when there's plenty of hardcore in there. Serpent Venom is pretty cool too. I'm about to buy this 3 pack of CDs from Southern Lord which has Xibalba (i posted them much earlier in the year), Seven Sisters of Sleep, and Planks (pretty cool band if you guys haven't heard of them) + wittr album w/ shirt +velvet cacoon's genevieve (only a dollar for the cd. not sure why) + all pigs must die (hardcore supergroup with drummer of converge) 2 cd w/ shirt. Surprisingly won't be breaking the bank.

Funeral doom has death vocals like yours did, but it doesn't have that traditional doom guitar style like yours did (aka Black Sabbath riffs). It's more of a slow but heavy melodic style with a bit of slowed down death metal or melodic death metal riffage influence here and there.

What would Loss be considered? IMO the guitar tone and riffs sound really similar to Warning, but with death metal vox

Often, yes, but that's not the only criteria.

Somber? Yeah usually. But lighter? Usually not at all. Corrupted, Esoteric and Asunder I think are all heavy as fuck.

This is the most accurate and helpful response.

The key difference is atmosphere, which is lacking in the band you posted. Lots of times that could indicate synths/keyboards always having a presence (or in Asunder's case, actual strings), but again it's not at all an actual requirement.

Yeah, I was thinking of adding that about the atmosphere, but I had too much on my mind to remember to do it.

I caught Norska a couple days ago, I liked it but far from contender for best of 2011. It's fun, though.

Also, funeral doom to me calls for better production than either of these bands. The Death-Doom classification works as does the use of keyboards, but to me it's usually always had a much clearer/sometimes overproduced production to it.
