    I bought this over the weekend because I bought this year’s Kristoffer Lo release and that sent me in a Kristoffer Lo kick and he plays tuba here. This is a bass, drums and tuba trio with Lo doubling in electronics.

    The other Lo albums I have are more dark ambient than rock. Is that appropriate for this thread?

    I would recommend Spain's Orthodox to anyone who likes an experimental take on doom. I don't have their last couple albums, but listen to their first track from their debut album Gran Poder (2006) and maybe you'll want to explore further.

    Heaviest Sloooow Doom? Nine months of Mr's McGilvery's 7th grade English class. By the end of the year though, I kind of liked her anyway.

    Wow, never did I expect Slomo to be mentioned on SHF. Love them. Holy McGrail's solo stuff is great too, though not sure how doomy you could describe it.

    Have you heard his trio recording with Copey and Stephen O'Malley called Vesuvio? It's a killer disc of psychedelic drone-metal! :D

    Yeah, Orthodox rules! I think they've gotten even more interesting on the last album they did which melds minimalist, late-Coltrane era sax abuse with.... some kind of avant/free metal. I am not even sure how to describe it but it's amazing nonetheless!

    Totally. I'm a huge Cope fan, so anything he's played on or written about I will buy. The whole 131 book and soundtrack project is fascinating to me.

    Revelation "Spectre" (or just about any song from their first two albums):



    The guitar solo that starts at the 4:25 mark is a thing of beauty.

    I recently decided to finish my collection of Black Boned Angel albums. The End is a masterpiece of slow, droning doooooooom!

    Not multiple-o slow perhaps, but pretty gosh darned heavy.

    Monolord - "Cursing the One"

    Lyrically it may not be slow doom, but musically the second side
    of Blue Cheer's New and Improved peels the bark and transcends
    beautiful gardens to withering dead flowers. Stephen Holden leads
    the charge with slow obliteration and shimmering meltdown leads,
    with Peace of Mind and Fruit and Icebergs. Like the sound guy says
    at the end of Fruit and Iceberg's gong whack... Good God.
