Doom metal music on the radio

Doom metal is a subgenre of heavy metal that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It is characterized by slow and heavy guitar riffs, gloomy lyrics, and a depressive atmosphere. One of the most distinctive features of the genre is the use of downtuned guitars and a prominent bass sound.

Some of the most popular doom metal bands include Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Candlemass, Pentagram, and Saint Vitus. Black Sabbath is widely considered to be the band that started the doom metal genre, with their self-titled debut album released in 1970. Electric Wizard is another influential band in the genre, known for their use of occult and horror themes in their lyrics and artwork.

There are several radio stations that specialize in doom metal, such as Doom Metal Front Radio, Stoned Meadow of Doom, and Doom Metal Heaven. These stations play a mix of classic and contemporary doom metal tracks, as well as other related subgenres such as stoner metal and sludge metal. Additionally, festivals such as the Maryland Doom Fest and the Roadburn Festival showcase some of the best doom metal bands from around the world.
