Top Doom and Doom-ish Metal releases of 2016

Here we present what we at Infernal Masquerade think have been the bleakest Doom and Doom-ish Metal releases of 2016.

10. Worm Ouroboros – What Graceless Dawn (2016)

This extremely atmospheric release truly showcases the band's ability to craft unique and trance-inducing heavy music.

9. The Foreshadowing – Seven Heads Ten Horns (2016)

This Italian band has been slowly maturing and now they are ready to take on the scene with their modern sounding Gothic Doom Metal.

8. Heaven Grey – Manuscriptum (2016)

Hands down the best in Baltic Gothic Doom Metal in 2016.

7. Hanging Garden – Hereafter (2016)

Brilliant EP that further showcases the band's unique musical evolution while retraining some of their signature heavier elements.

6. Evig Natt – Evig Natt (2016)

Heavily melancholic old-school Gothic/Doom Metal from Norway makes up for a great way of spending 50+ minutes!

5. Monolithe – Zeta Reticuli (2016)

This release is one of the most relentless releases of 2016 which also happens to have a high experimental component.

4. Vuolla – Blood. Stone. Sun. Down. (2016)

This multi-faceted release perfectly blends traditional Death/Doom influences with more modern Post-Metal/Depressive Rock elements.

3. Dead to a Dying World – Live at Roadburn 2016 (2016)

Very few things have impressed us this 2016 as much as this live performance. Now you can live it with this awesome live release.

 

2. Sinistro – Semente (2016)

There is something magical about the catchiness and the punishing nature of this Portuguese release.

1. Trees of Eternity – Hour of the Nightingale (2016)

Hauntingly beautiful and eerily depressive, this amazing release managed to get under our skin for weeks.
