Warning

There are at least five bands with the name Warning. 1. Warning was a UK based doom metal band. Warning flagged the rise of post-2000 wave of traditional doom metal. They were formed by Patrick Walker in 1994 in Harlow, Essex. The band is notable for its down-tempo, progressive, melodic and heavy doom-laden sound; the idiosyncratic and poignant vocals of Patrick Walker; and his introspective, darkly-confessional lyrical themes of acute pain, love, and melancholy nostalgia. The band released two demo tapes, "Revelation Looms" in Feb 1996 and "Blessed By Sabbath" in March 1997.

Trouble

Trouble was formed in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1979 by vocalist Eric Wagner, guitarists Bruce Franklin and Rick Wartell, bassist Sean McAllister, and drummer Jeff Olson. Drawing deeply from Black Sabbath for inspiration (with occasional nods to the psychedelic sounds of the late '60s thrown in for good measure), the band forged an uncompromising brand of classic metal all their own, made more unique by their gloomy down-tuned riffs and spiritual, often mistakenly religious lyrics...

Pagan Altar

Pagan Altar is a doom metal band formed in 1978 in Brockley, England. Alongside Witchfinder General, they are one of the few "NWOBHM" bands to play doom metal. Although they were ignored by mainstream metal media during the early and mid 80s, their influence did not emerge until after the 80s incarnation had broken up. Their gigs were characterized by moody, epic and heavy music interpreted with highly visual stage aspect which accented their interest for occult themes.

Necronomicon

With an album title (Tips zum Selbtsmord) that means "How to Commit Suicide," Necronomicon's one album, from 1972, featured bleak progressive garage rock with long instrumental passages.
