A starting pack of death/doom metal songs is an easy way to get into the genre. Here are some of my favorite songs that should provide a good starting point. I’ll also try and vary the death/doom metal styles to give a good mix between harsh and melodic, as well as new and old. Enjoy, comment and share!

Anathema – Sunset of Age (“The Silent Enigma”, 1995)


Daylight Dies – Lies that Bind (“Dismantling Devotion”, 2006)


Doom:VS – Dead Words Speak (“Dead Words Speak”, 2008)


Hamferð – Vráin (“Vilst er síðsta fet”, 2010)


Katatonia – Murder (“Brave Murder Day”, 1996)


Mourning Beloveth – Narcissistic Funeral (“The Sullen Sulcus”, 2002)
