Doom-death Metal

Death/Doom combines the slow tempos and pessimistic or depressive mood of doom metal with the deep growling vocals and double kick drumming of death metal. The genre emerged in the mid 1980s and gained a certain amount of popularity during the 1990s, but had become less common by the turn of the century. In turn, death/doom gave rise to the closely related genre of funeral doom as well as to the more melodic and romantic gothic metal.
