 Metal - the history of early doom metal
Together with heavy metal, doom metal is the oldest form of metal music, rooted in the music of early Black Sabbath, which is often considered as one of the first metal bands amongst many metalheads.
Doom metal first became widely recognized within the metal scene with Sweden's Candlemass, who are hailed in the mainstream metal press as one of the most important and influential doom metal bands; their 1986 album Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is considered a genre-defining release.
According to the proponents of the classic doom metal style, the most prototypical doom metal band would be Saint Vitus, who released their self-titled debut album in 1984 - two years before doom metal as a genre was recognised in the mainstream metal press.

Doom metal sticks to the slower and mid tempos, with dirge-like (often downtuned) riffs and dark, somber melodic harmonies.
Most doom metal makes use of death and fl metal vocals, but clean male and female voices are often employed to enhance the sullen atmosphere and dark mood of the music.
Doom death is a simply fusion of traditional doom metal's slower tempos and morose atmosphere with death metal's (generally low tuned) heaviness and growled vocals.

 To Mega Therion Review
Celtic Frost may not be my "favorite" death metal band (then again, they may) but there is little doubt in my mind that they're the "best" death metal around.
The only death metal band I can think of that doesn not boast a satanic image, their "occult" image is portrayed through outstanding lyrics dealing with all sorts of occult themes (and some non-occult themes), lyrics which most death metallers probably can neither understand nor appreciate.
Celtic Frost brings respectability to a form of metal in dire need of respectability, and for that alone I thank them and support them.

Martin Ain was only 16 when he and Celtic Frost co-founder Tom G. Warrior (aka Tom Gabriel Fischer) recorded the debut EP by their band Hellhammer, the death/doom metal classic ‘Apocalyptic Raids’, in 1983.
In 1984, Hellhammer morphed into Celtic Frost, and late that year their ultra heavy full length album ‘Morbid Tales’ took the metal underground by storm.
The entire vision, the entire idea of Celtic Frost was to be able to create something new, and from there take another step.

It was evident that one of the most influential bands in the history of metal music couldn´t get rid of a re-issue of their stuff, with everything that this process conveys: improved sound through remastering, unreleased songs, enhanced booklet, new pictures and so on.
But beholding this work right now, many years after its release, taking into account the wide variety of musical genres in the metal scene, and, the most important thing, the huge influence that this opus seems to have had in several bands and artists within metal (specially doom metal), the veredict would be rather positive.

The starting point for symphonic fl metal was the early-'90s sound of Norwegian fl metal, specifically the wing of bands that employed sorrowful, melodic keyboard lines as a counterpoint to their furious assaults.
The symphonic fl metal movement remains somewhat limited, partly because of its epic ambitions and partly because it isn't traditionally metallic, but its fascinating synthesis of influences made it an instantly identifiable alternative in underground metal at the turn of the millennium.
This unconventional mix of fl metal brutality and synthesizers resulted in one of the decade's most original and extreme metal releases, and was followed by extensive touring (including the band's first American shows).

Northwinds is one of the very few true doom bands from France (if not the only one), having been formed way back in 1987 even though they didn't get around to recording an album until 1998.
That album, Great God Pan, is a fine, Sabbath-inspired doom metal album with keyboards applying an occasional psychedelic edge to the proceedings.

 Doom-metal.com: Reviews - Winter
With the sluggish intro "Oppression Freedom/Reprise" serving as Armageddon, the remainder of this release is akin to a downtrodden journey through the debris of the very structure of civilization, as a bleak landscape of urban ruins extends for miles in every direction.
However, these releases are not particularly oppressive in the attacking, full-throttle fl metal way, or in the mind-boggling, pretentiously-technical approach; no, not in the least, for the sluggish pace and downright HEAVINESS alone is far more than enough to drive most away.
The death metal influence is still present of course, and in very strong quantities, however it is outweighed by the darkness and even the fear of a world on the edge on the tracks.

Starting in the early Eighties as a gimmick-flavored synthesis of classic Metal's dark, horror-film aesthetics with raw thrash music, Black Metal has evolved into a widespread, harsh-sounding subgenre whose lyrics and imagery invoke occultism, misanthropy and severe anti-Christian sentiments.
When the initial wave of evil thrash innovators, including Celtic Frost and the mighty Venom, declined and subsided, a new generation of fiercely dedicated fans took up Satan's mantle, and this morbid vision of youthful rebellion mutated into something like an ideology.
In Norway, a small but fervent underground Black Metal scene quickly grew violent around 1992, as members of well-known bands in that country became involved in a wave of church burnings, suicide, and murder.
