I also like post-rock, making me even more hip than if I just liked hip doom.

DethMaiden is just a dilettante who likes to sit in Barnes & Noble and fancy himself a pundit as he writes his hipster reviews of the newest hipster albums, like Sunbather.

Shoegaze is typically beautiful, but vacuous. But it's way better than slam metal.

We have all been brainwashed by Aristotle for the last 2,500 years.

Not really here, no. They're definitely a US phenomenon. Has this album been as successful as the last one?

About as doom as Lenny Kravitz though. This is what I meant earlier, there's a whole bunch of stuff that's getting shoved under the "doom" label right now that just isn't doom. What's funny is, it's all completely different too. It's not even uniform mislabelling

Extremely random and irrelevant comment... Alas are you planning on doing a year-end list for 2013? I really enjoy your lists. Quite insightful and descriptive, also full of albums/bands I have never heard of.

Tell me it wouldn't be AWESOME if Lenny Kravitz made a doom metal album

My contribution to this echo-chamber of empty rhetoric, elitism and scorn.

And no, I'm not doing one of those this year. Thanks for the compliment though. I just wasn't enthusiastic enough with 2013's output to commit the time to making one of those lists.

In SubRosa's case, I don't think it's mislabeling at all. Maybe if you're talking about a band like Leeches of Lore it is, but I'm not aware of a common misinterpretation of it. Genre's evolve. Sounds evolve. Not every doom band is going to sound like Saint Vitus or Candlemass. Surely you know this though, so what gives?

If you think SubRosa isn't doom then we're just on very different wavelengths. Or maybe we just disagree on language.
