The death of 2015: Top 6 traditional doom metal albums

I was willing to include a funeral doom part as well but it turns out I haven't listened to many albums there, since i didn't think Bell Witch was that special and totally missed Tyranny. However, there were some clean doom metal albums that stayed with me this year.

.......... So..........

6. Pentagram - Curious Volume
Origin: Washington, US
Label: Peaceville Records

5. Demon Eye - Tempora infernalia
Origin: North Carolina, US
Label: Soulseller Records

4. Lucifer - Lucifer I
Origin: Germany
Label: Rise Above Records

3. Valkyrie - Shadows
Origin: Germany
Label: Relapse Records

2. Sorcerer - In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross
Origin: Sweden
Label: Metal Blade Records

☆ 1. Crypt Sermon - Out of the Garden 
Origin: Pennsylvania, US
Label: Dark Descent Records



  1. Yep I share the Crypt Sermon pick with you. It was one of the best releases of the year.
    In my case, Bell Witch did it for me and I think you can check Il Vuoto in the Funeral Doom category highly inspired by Skepticism but still interesting.

  2. I liked Shape of Despair a lot and Ahab too, even though they are not that much of funeral doom anymore. I'll check the band you suggested, thanks!
