Anyone got any recommendations for funeral doom along the lines of Ahab and Skepticism?

Evoken cross into Funeral Doom territory pretty often. The section starting at 6:50 is utterly bone-chilling.

I just emerged from finals and finally got around to picking up Murder The Mountains. This is amazing, I'm glad I have a new jam for 4/20. That said, my favourite stoner rock has to be Truckfighters and Fu Manchu, I prefer that to pretty much everything else I've heard within the genre(s). Any suggestions regarding comparable tunes?

I'd also throw in Firestone for for bands similar to Truckfighters. That split they did together is still one of my favourite records. There's 2 Ep's by Firestone somewhere out there but I think they've called it quits years ago. Still worth checking out

Roadburn: foregoing Shrinebuilder for other bands and not regretting it one bit.

I agree 100%. That Ufomammut gig is one of the best shows I've ever seen. Could hardly stand on my legs after they completely obliterated me and my group of friends. Already looking forwards to Roadburn 2012!

Well, I know for sure I missed many great bands - a problem when pretty much all of them are great choices - there were some torturous clashes but here was my lineup:

Quest For Fire - a nice warmup gig, nothing mindblowing but entertaining
Acid King - simply awesome
Naam - a really nice surprise, I had no idea who they were. Psychedelic technical doom... or something!
Cough - solid stoner/doom with extra slow, extra loud, extra fuzzy live shows. One of my favourites by far, they blew my loving mind
Godflesh - wasn't familiar with them but I can see why people were so excited. I went off half way to see The Atomic Bitchwax but honestly, Godflesh were just doing it for me way more at the time. I'll be checking out Streetcleaner at least


Mammifer - saw about 15 minutes of them; they must have played about 4 guitar notes. They were very loud notes, though. Enjoyable atmospheric doom
Circle - Earth were supposed to come on, but Circle came on instead. This was a disappointment and they weren't really my thing
Void Ov Voices - Atilla's (Sunn's vocalist for Monoliths) solo project where he sits round a small skull-candlelit table, and processes his vocal drones into bassy loops and screams/does his general thing over them. Very theatrical and really really enjoyable. I want to hire him out for some vampire party or something
Winter - Really cool stoner/doom, will be checking them out more
Earth - As excellent as the recent gig I went to. Absolutely engrossing and had the whole audience hypnotised
Sunn 0))) - the loudest band by far and my first time seeing them live. What an amazing pants-making GBS threads experience. They started with Orthodox Caveman, but slowed down so much it was almost unrecogniseable. Again, the whole audience was absolutely transfixed
Scorn - Just popped my head in, sounded like some sick drum and bass/dubstep though


Master Musicians of Bukkake - another good surprise. Fully costumed band with 7 or so members, starting with atmospheric drones and moving onto middle eastern deserty doom rock.
Lonely Camel
White Hills
Weedeater - it's Weedeater. Need I say more?
Evoken
Imaad Wasif
Shrinebuilder - sounds loving excellent live. Definitely one of those bands you "get" once you see them live, though I had to leave early to beat the queue for the other venue for Ufomammut. I would've happily stayed otherwise.
Dragontears - pretty good psychedelic stoner rock but it was a bit underwhelming with the small crowd and knowing Shrinebuilder were on
Ufomammut - absolutely sick. They started with Stigma, then played all of Eve, then a few old songs. Eve sounds amazing live and really gives it more life for those who've maybe worn it down a bit.


Spindrift - psychedelic spaghetti western music. Yup.
Sungrazer
Blood Farmers - good riffs and b-movie gore in the background
Coffins - kicked rear end! Really heavy poo poo and great riffs.
Dead Meadow
Black Mountain
Black Pyramid
Sourvein

You can probably tell that it was all great, really. But the atmosphere, the organisation, and the people were amazing. It is paradise for stoner/doom/sludge fans. Nobody there was a dick and you could tell everyone was there truly for the love of the music and not simply to get wasted. On the contrary, it's surely the most civilised metal festival that exists. The campsite had a really nice atmosphere too (and actual toilets and hot showers!), plus the town of Tilburg is absolutely lovely and the rest of the town seemed welcoming of the somewhat odd crowd flocking in for the weekend.

I'll be going every year from now on.

If you're curious about a reasoning from someone who does like them, I'd say that that's an aspect which really isn't important given the context of the band - for me it's that they have a very raw, powerful sound which gives more priority to gut feeling and viscerally charged vocals. A nuanced vocal melody isn't really part of their tone or image. It just really fits their trippy, biker image and sound. If you don't like that, well, it's not exactly hard to find music with more melodic vocals. I'm pretty confident most fans would agree with that.

They sounded great live, though. Like a kickass motorbike engine on acid.

I'm reminded ofthe post-rock band A Silver Mt Zion (who most people here would hate), who are quite popular but get a lot of hate for rather amelodic, nasal but very visceral vocals.

Just something that's been bugging me for a while. I own The Early Years and Busse Woods and have listened to them a few times and just can't get past the vocals (something which isn't usually a problem for me). It's not so much that the melodies are bad or anything, she's just always about a quarter step sharp or flat and it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Skepticism is in my top 3 of my favorite bands so I can help you out.

Longing For Dawn - Has my favorite Funeral Doom "mouthful-of-lasagna" vocals.
Worship - A little harder to listen to - a little harsher, but still awesome.
Shape of Despair - Slight hints of "vaginal" Funeral Doom but this is a great band. Long rear end intros.
Wormphlegm - Utterly filthy.
Catacombs

It may have been hyped here already, but it bears repeating: Monkeypriest's The Psalm is abso-fuckin-lutely amazing! Oh holy gently caress at the thick-as-gently caress sludge that flows like a river of black evil out of this album. It's nonstop riff worship from start to finish. The second track, "The Word of the Priest" has one of the most face-meltingly brilliant riffs I've ever heard.

Set down your bongs, my brothers, and give this a listen, post-haste.

Not as dark as, say, Catacombs, but I'm partial to Esoteric for funeral doom. The Secret of the Secret is one of my favorite songs ever. Absolutely beautiful stuff.

For me, all of the Truckfighters' material is almost equal quality wise, with their half of Fuzzsplit of the Century coming in on top.

Mania is great and while it's not got as many heavy hitters as Gravity X (or Phi), I'd definitely be interested in some more mellow-y stuff like Monster. Also, Con of Man is one of my absolute favorites.

So, like, what demon do you have to appease to achieve the mind-blowingly low riff that Moss achieves on the opening track of Tombs of the Blind Drugged? It's gotta be close to below human hearing.

In other news, The Sword are swinging through Little Rock again on June 7th. My third time seeing them live, can't wait!
