“Lexicanum of Doom” is an overview of the doom scene, following the traditional side of the music. This book will cover such genres as traditional doom, stoner doom, psychedelic, epic doom, and their hybrids derived from different combinations of rock and metal components. I think that extreme doom subgenres deserve their own separate story, so I chose to avoid this huge part of the scene, and left it for another writer.

Here you’ll find the stories of the well-known forefathers of doom, like Pentagram, Trouble and Candlemass. We’ll take a look at the legacy of later explorers such as Cathedral and Electric Wizard. And of course – and this is the crux of the book – we’ll observe the growth of the genre all the way to the point where it is now.

So, “Lexicanum of Doom” is a kind of encyclopedia of doom. It was a difficult decision who to include or omit, but I mostly selected those bands which I know well – the bands with which I've already conducted in-depth interviews. This book is a kind of homage to their work: it’s like a limited vinyl edition for die-hard fans. You know – there are books about heavy metal, about black metal, and so on, and now we need this one before Doomsday arrives.

If public interest is high enough, the book will be released in A4 format, with 1 black and white picture for each band and 8-12 pages of colour inserts. If there is less support - as may be expected - then I’ll only be able to print the book in A5, probably without the colour parts. So, the shape of doom is in your hands...

This Profile ( https://www.facebook.com/lexicanumofdoo ... f=NEWSFEED ) is created for the promotion of this book, dedicated to the doom scene under the working title “Lexicanum of Doom”. You can find a promo of the provisional A4 layout below.

je l´ai finalement acheté et je ne le regrette pas. Je n´ai pas encore tout lu loin s´en faut mais il y a déjà pas mal de groupes underground que j´écoute comme Night Gaunt et Mammoth Storm :up:

J'ai lu que cela concerne les groupes plus traditionnels du genre, ceux plus "modernes" (au sens historique) tels que Paradise Lost ou My Dying Bride ont été mis de côté.
