Doom Metal is known as a sub genre of metal music. Like every other genre of music, everything depends on the development, style and instruments of the music to classify it. Most doom metal music is a step down in guitar tuning, speed and the amounts of distortion. Their vocals and song connotations are usually about misery, fear and death. You can find more about where doom metal came from at the metal forums.

Characteristics of Doom Metal Vocals

Doom metal has more of a cleaner feel of vocals. Some band will give out a scream here and there in their music. Great examples of this style of singing are Bobby Lebling and Ozzy Osbourne. There will always be other ways to incorporate the style. There are different types of screams and growls in doom metal.

Most lyrics that doom metal music artists and bands write are nothing in particular. They write mostly about inspirations in life. Doom metal lyrics usually have a sense of death, sorrow, depression, fear and anger within their music. You could take a different side to this. Bands also write about religion, symbolism and inspiration from literature.

Instruments

Like most metal bands, doom metal isn't any different. The band will consist of bass guitar, electric guitars and drums. Doom metal has also incorporated keyboards within their music. To get the bass guitarists, guitarists and low distortion will tune their instruments several notes less than the standard. This can provide the guitars a very low and dark sound. Having the bass guitar tuned down will give it a heavier bass feel to the song. With most drum kits having a double bass drums or double bass pedal, this would add more distortion and bass to their music.

Sub Genres of Doom Metal

Doom metal music has different sub genres of metal music. Each one of these features its own elements and styles. This is a list of the different sub categories of doom metal music.

Traditional

Epic

Stoner

Sludge

Death Doom

Black Doom Metal

Stay tuned for the next post when I get into each one of the different sub genres. Like any other type of music there will also be that different style in each genre. For the future of doom metal, it will continue to evolve and develop into something more than what it is today.
