I love a lot of Sabbath stuff and am appreciating more and more their earlier output but to be honest, the issue I have with a lot of the latter generation of defined doom metal bands is that they only take one aspect of the Sabs and base their entire sound on it. I listened to a couple of the acts you recommended and thought Windhand was especially one-dimensional. Avatarium has more promise and no wonder with some damn good musos, the excellent Marcus Jidell no less, rather more ambitious but still very much in that vein.

I remember when heavy music had basically two categories - heavy metal and hard rock - in many ways it was all the better for it, since the subsequent infinite subcategorisation of it has led to more and more bands just following one sound or style.

That said, I do have a soft spot for Candlemass. Sometimes because I think their stuff is just so funny but they have some damn good songs up their sleeve, albeit with titles that just have me rolling. Beyond The Infinitive Halls Of Death anyone?!
