I had never heard of doom metal before stumbling upon this song by Sunn O))). What is doom metal? Says Wiki, it’s a form of metal “that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much “thicker” or “heavier” sound than other metal genres.”
Oh, okay. Cool.
“Both the music and the lyrics intend to evoke a sense of despair, dread, and impending doom.”
Me? It just made me nauseous as hell.
I listened to about 90% of this and while it was going on I could feel this building nausea and general “I feel crappy” sense. I actually had to stop it and go into the bathroom ‘cause I thought I was going to lose it, but once the music stopped the nausea/crappiness went away and I felt fine. I tried it again about an hour later and the same thing happened again.
