Anathema, Katatonia, and Paradise Lost. How fucking great were these bands at one point? I was digging through my shit the other day and came across the 'They Die' 7" by Anathema. I was like, how the fuck did this band become so gay?

What about 'Lost Paradise'? I think the last album I heard from these guys they sounded like a mix of Metallica and the Cure. Nowhere near the crushing death sound on their first album.

Katatonia kept things going a little longer before turning into a pile of shit. You wonder if somewhere along the way these bands all made a pact to sell out and start writing goth music so they could make money off of depressed teenagers.

Does anyone know of any underground shit I might not be aware of that is along the lines of the old material from these bands? Old My Dying Bride is the closest thing I've found. Looking for bands that have more emphasis on the doom sound.

I always thought Swallow The Sun were just slower Melodic Death than anything. Daylight Dies is pretty good though, great live band.

And I might be with the minority, but I like everything Katatonia has done. They have a very unique sound that no one has imo. I know their stuff is more rock than metal these days, but some of the stuff they come up with is pretty amazing. Though I don't think they can top Dance Of December Souls...some of the best atmosphere on a album ever.

Brave Murder Day is their best release IMO. Sounds of Decay is also pretty good (and has a great cover, taken from Begotten). Nothing more works for me after that one.

Haha... yeah, MAYBE. But it's by far one of the greatest albums ever

removed my posts cause I can't afford to start an idiotic debate with people I don't even know.
