Novembers Doom – Empathy’s Greed [DOOM METAL]
Location: United States
Lyrical Themes: Dark emotions, Doom, Symbolism
As Autumn approaches, days grow short, darkness, death and melancholy fill the natural world. Oh — and there’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes of course. (Yeah, I’m basic).
To celebrate the approach of my favorite time of year, it’s time to crank out the doom metal tunes.
Just discovered this group today. They’re defined as “doom” on Encyclopedia Metallum. But in my opinion, I’d label them as a synthesis between doom and post-metal (the likes of Pelican). I tend to think of doom as slow and droning, like a morbidly obese man who ate too much peanut butter is slowly exploding as the universe pulls apart.
This song, however, while keeping the ominous feel of doom metal, has a faster tempo and more dynamically involved instrumentals, that make them a satisfying fusion between death and post-metal.
So for those who normally can’t stand doom, check out this song. You might be pleasantly surprised.
