Feeling depressed? Antisocial? Apathetic? We’ve got just the thing: The Top 100 Doom Metal Albums of All Time special issue! Hey, we never said we’d be good therapists.
But let’s keep it real: all the counseling you need is in these pages. Our staff navigated six decades (!) of proto-doom, funeral doom, gothic doom, stoner doom melodic doom and even “doom-pop” (don’t sound the false alarm; we’re talking Floor) to bring you 100 unassailable exemplars of the genre, supplemented with brand new interview content and top picks from a variety of doom’s living legends.
Craving more? Chris Dick got together with sadly defunct U.K. doom titans Cathedral and assembled an exclusive Hall of Fame on sophomore stunner The Ethereal Mirror, a truly progressive album that may have been unsung upon its 1993 release, but has only garnered more renown with age. It’s the centerpiece of an issue featuring 100 percent never-before-seen content. (Please note: the annual special issue is not included as part of subscriptions.)
Winter is upon us, friends. Procure this one-of-a-kind issue here. If you want to get lost in history, grab a special bundle containing all of Decibel‘s last four special issuesthat are still in print. And if you prefer to sextuple down on sheer, crippling despondence, pick up this special issue as part of our doom bundle.
