Yes, with Bell Witch, and no, I didn't go for the reasons stated. :bang: :despair:

UNHOLY.

WINTER could count.

MONARCH's latest releases (locals and buddies of mine, they just toured with Bell Witch, and I'm seeing them again tomorrow.)

WORMPHLEGM.

STABAT MATER.

PROFETUS.

LOSS.

WORSHIP.


Etc...
Thergothon and Unholy, together with the titular band of the subgenre, Funera (Norway), are fundamentals. Highly recommend them all.
oh crikey I haven't checked out any new Funeral since 2008

Nor had I, but like, 2001? It turns out Oratorium is pretty good, not funereal at all, though.

I saw Bell Witch recently on tour with Yob. They were great. I tend to lean towards more standard doom myself but I do think Bell Witch are excellent and I like the diversity under the doom umbrella.

Since I haven’t explored much funeral doom... If you were pressed to do a funeral doom best of compilation, what would you recommend?

Old stuff I like would be the 1994-5 releases from Skepticism, Thergothon, Funeral and Unholy. New would be Bell Witch, Ahab and Asunder.

Is this stuff actually meant to sound like death? Maybe my world experience is different because the death I've experienced is quiet, icy, and full of absence of anything, except the sound of the activities of people around the dying and th last noises of dying throes.

This sounds more like 15 year old's dramatic imaginings of death.

Well, the metal world and all it's countless derivations are no strangers to histrionics!

Not 'funeral' doom per se but I absolutely love the record 'What you don't know is frontier' by ASVA - a stark, glacially beautiful lament for band member Stuart (also of Burning Witch fame) Dahlquist's brother, who was killed in a car crash.

Yeah, the genre of funeral doom got its name from a band that was an early innovator in the style, much like actual death metal (which was I think, not the topic here, but which was thrown in for some reason).

Death metal was, for what it's worth, an early song by Possessed, who were either the first death metal band, the first death metal band to release something official, or an influence on the first death metal bands. And another contender for genre-defining band was, of course, Death.

It's beside the point, regardless. There are loud ways to die which are not rare, obscure or hard to think of, and it's not hard to understand why nasty music would be combined with nasty imagery in the first place, and, as DickMarker points out, it hasn't prevented works in the genre from showing taste, depth of feeling, etc.

Burning Witch still did it the best after all these years.

anybody?

already a huge fan of:
bell witch
mournful congregation
shape of despair
funeral
frowning
I'm digging Funeral but the lyrics are pointless whininess. Good tunes though.

Lately I'm into this sea/vampire dirge stuff like Serpent's Isle, Mothtower and Wallachian Cobwebs.

i can see that point

i personally prefer when i can't understand lyrics and they're just sort of another instrument

Profetus' latest album is excellent! On the whole I hadn't felt like listening to funeral doom much at all for many years but this hits the spot...
