Labored, mournful, and crushingly heavy, the anesthetizing, sloth-like riffs of Doom Metal and the melancholy strains of Gothic Metal are all here. With a wealth of historical detail and a full global discography of each listed band, including a full account of Black Sabbath's tortured history, and spanning Stoner, Gothic, and Darkwave, this encyclopedia-style book is the first to chronicle the underground world wide phenomena that is Doom. Pentagram, Atomic Rooster, The Obsessed, Trouble, My Dying Bride, Cathedral, Paradise Lost, November's Doom, Candlemass, Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Alabama Thunderpussy, Ironboss, Rain Fell Within, Autumn's Tears, Black Sabbath (of course), and many more bands are covered. It includes a CD with 16 tracks.
