Post Secret History of Doom
Anyone read it? I knew nothing about this until I saw it for sale in my local Londis (!) Have only read bits and pieces but looks pretty interesting to me. Good mix of a few older features and new interviews/features. Bobby Liebling is a character isn't he?

Inevitable Top 50 list whinging: if there's going to be more than one album per band, where the heck was 'Nightfall' by Candlemass?!!

Anni has it, I don't think he was too impressed. Will probably pick it up on Thursday, if I can find it.

Yes, that Nightfall omission was curious. Its ok, but in an "A to Z of doom" I should clearly be Iron Man, not Isis. And much as I like High On Fire, they are hardly a doom band.

And there was no giant sized Witchfinder General/Liz Buckingham straddling a chopper poster either, most disappointing.

Yeah, I didn't hate it, but I don't feel that it's a particularly secret history, just a combination of stuff I already knew, and articles I'm pretty sure I've read before. The funeral doom, and epic doom sections are pretty decent reads though.

As for the top 50, I posted my thought's on facebook the other night.
'How do they justify not including Watching From a Distance, Sorrow of the Angels and The Will of the Gods is Great Power, yet feel all 5 of Sabbath's first albums deserve a spot (yeah they're good, but 5 from one band might be a bit over the top), Angel Witches self titled, which isn't even a doom album, and Through Silver in Blood which again, I'm not sure I'd call a doom album.'

Infact, there seems an over riding feeling that they want to call Angel Witch a doom band, despite them not being. As if they've been paid to keep mentioning them. Infact I'm pretty sure at once point it suggests Witchfinder General where more NWOBHM than doom, but insinuates that that Angel Witch somehow pioneered doom. Perhaps from an aesthetic point of view they where influential, but beyond that, I just found it a bit unusual.

I love the Angel Witch debut, but any album with Confused and Sweet Danger on it is going to find it really hard to be Doom.

I was also suprised Warning were nowhere to be seen. I've never heard them and so don't really have an opinion, but everyone seemed to be sent into paroxsysms of ecstacy by their last album.

And with good reason, as I was saying to Andrew on facebook, I'd have been tempted to list Watching From a Distance 50 times if I had done the list :lol:

Watching From A Distance is brilliant. I never realised it was possible to make what is pretty much a man weeping hysterically sound so fucking METAL. It's an insanely, ludicruous, inhumanly upset-sounding album - it somehow makes crying so hard you've got snot halfway down your front seem macho.

Saw this on the shelves here today. Going for 140 Krona!!!!! That's 12 pounds 70! :shock: I couldn't afford it so passed unfortunately. Is that how much it was in the UK?

No, I think it was slightly more than the standard issues, but not by much.
edit: £5.99

Double price here. That's pretty outrageous. Anyone care to put up the top 50?
