Drone Metal

Drone Metal is a form of extreme down-tempo metal, commonly referred to as "Drone-Doom", in which artists play generally overdriven guitars at very low tempos (often between Largo and Larghissimo) with minor, minimalistic progressions. Songs are often very lengthy and have high focus on the atmosphere. Whilst remainingly whole-heartedly underground, the bands Sunn O))) and Earth are more known as the pioneers of the genre.
