Definition of the noun Doom metal

What does Doom metal mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. [music] a subgenre of heavy metal emphasizing feelings of despair

Music

  1. Doom metal is an extreme form of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much "thicker" or "heavier" sound than other metal genres. Both the music and the lyrics intend to evoke a sense of despair, dread, and impending doom. The genre is strongly influenced by the early work of Black Sabbath, who formed a prototype for doom metal with songs such as "Black Sabbath", "Electric Funeral" and "Into the Void". The Beatles' 1969 song "I Want You" is sometimes considered to be the first ever work of doom rock/metal. During the first half of the 1980s, a number of bands from England, the United States and Sweden defined doom metal as a distinct genre.
  2. "Doom Metal" a.k.a. "Doom / Metal" is a musical single of 2 by Bukowski.
