Created by doom fanatic Aleksey Evdokimov, arguably the most active doom metal scribe in the world, DOOM METAL LEXICANUM 2 is the second book in the series, and is an equally massive tome, this time mostly focussing on the death-doom end of the doom metal spectrum. The book includes:
MY DYING BRIDE, PARADISE LOST, ANATHEMA, THERGOTHON, CORRUPTED, AMORPHIS, ABYSSIC, COFFINS, LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE, UNHOLY, ESOTERIC, MENTAL HOME, MAEL MORDHA, SEVENCHURCH, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, OCTOBER TIDE, KATATONIA, RUNEMAGICK, GRAND MAGUS, DECOMPOSED, BEYOND DAWN, THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, THORR’S HAMMER, YEARNING, MINDROT, DEINONYCHUS, FALLEN, THE GATHERING, LAKE OF TEARS, RIPPIKOULU and many, many more.
Plus separate lengthy interviews with:
Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost), Paul ‘Hammy’ Halmshaw (Peaceville Records), Robert ‘Mags’ Magoolagen (Academy Studios), Aaron Stainthorpe and Martin Powell (My Dying Bride)
Within these pages you’ll find the stories of both the well-known pioneers of doom and newer acolytes, tracking the growth of the genre all the way to the present day. This book guides the reader through each band’s discography, frequently including interviews with the artists involved.
