Having read your thread I think you are more inclined towards the Doom-Death subset of the Doom Genre. For a good informative definition of the various subsets you should visit the following site www.doom-metal.com. It answers many of the questions posed in this thread.

I'd think that you may be interested in the early works of Theatre of Tragedy, Lacrimas Profundere, Anathema and Paradise Lost. I don't think that the brand of Doom that Katatonia was doing in their early years will suit your interests.

Do not listen to those who bash My Dying Bride, experience them for yourself, I would think that Turn Loose The Swans would be a good start or maybe Like Gods Are The Sun which is much more relaxed and violin oriented. To me any MDB album is a good place to start (well, probably not the infamous 34.788%... which barely makes it to Doom). Granted the last MDB is the weakest in a long time but still have some good moments. You could try "The Dreadful Hours" which is the greatest thing they did after Turn Loose The Swans.

The Amorphis album "Tales of Thounsand Lakes" is not really a Doom album, more like a folkish psychedelic death stoner rock album. The odd label will give you an indication of how unique that album is.

Modern bands you probably would like... Swallow The Sun, Officium Triste, How Like a Winter, Shape of Despair (more aligned with the Funeral Doom subset but I think you would like it) Draconian (best "new" Doom Death band). The guys from Fall of Empyrean are really good (go figure how such dark music could be produced in Arizona). It has already metioned Novembers Doom however I do not think they are Doom Death anymore. There has been heated discussions over how much they have split from the Doom Death subset, nevertheless they produce excellent sorrowful music. Mourning Beloveth is also a band that deserves full attention.

Ningizzia is also a fine European addition worth to check in spite of a small reliance to the Black Metal genre. And also the legends of Shroud of Bereavement... they have been for ages in the business but never landed a record deal.

There is much more to say but I hope this helps for now.

There seems to be an agreement that Draconian Times is the best record they have ever made. I would really encourage you to try Shades of God, Icon and even Gothic (ground breaking album mainly because of the soprano inclusion, I would argue that album set the standard of sopranos in Doom Metal). I have a sense you would not like their first album Lost Paradise.

Regarding Novembers Doom their last album is quite good although I like much more the previous one The Pale Haunt Departed. Their early ones are good, specially "To Welcome The Fade"

Because if you're feeling shitty, bands who write depressing music can bring you back up through co-misery.

Seriously.
