Doomed - Wrath Monolith
Building on the previous three masterpieces of atmospheric doom/death, mastermind Pierre Laube, pushes his creative borders further and further away from the contours of classic doom/death.
Arcturus - Arcturian
When Simen Hestnæs, also known as ICS Vortex and famous for his prominent voice on quite a few Norwegian metal albums, announced that he had plans to revive "a band or three" after his departure (or rather removal) from Dimmu Borgir, I really hoped one of them would be Arcturus.
Ahab - The Boats of the Glen Carrig
Now four albums deep, Germany's Ahab have become the premier powerhouse of nautikal doom.
Lustre - Blossom
You should love Lustre. Nobody else is making music like this. Sole creator Nachtzeit drapes waves of hypnotic black metal -- played at the pace of doom -- in sumptuous keyboard melodies that, at first, don't seem to belong in a metal context.
Bell Witch - Four Phantoms
Bell Witch's second full-length improves on all the promising elements of their 2012 album, _Longing_. It's slow (check) and crushing (check), but it rises above the crowd of similar mourners by employing some extraordinary tear-wringing guitar leads and pairing simple, plaintive singing with those cavernous extreme vocals.
W.A.I.L. - II
With their dirge-caked strains of death metal merged with doom pacing and black metal's bleak psychological horrors, W.A.I.L.'s closest sonic relative is probably Alexander von Meilenwald's Ruins of Beverast.
Liturgy - The Ark Work
Fact: Liturgy apply traditionally metal elements (distorted guitars, frenetic percussion, etc.) to their music. Fact: Liturgy's music is not strictly metal. On _The Ark Work_, Liturgy have taken their style to a new place that largely ignores their metal affinities.
