The Voice Of Doom is an online music station, dedicated to playing death, doom, gothic, and symphonic metal. We aim to bring you an enchanting mix of melodic metal, and constantly check out new tracks, while also trying to find rare offerings from the past. The station was born out of a belief that these genres of music were (and still are in our opinion), massively underated especially within the United kindom. Our playlist encompasses bands from all over the world, including Argentina (Beto Vázquez Infinity), Brazil (Hydria), and Tunisia (Persona). Doom metal, described by some as beautiful music to die to, since its lyrics often decribe a sense of despair, dread, impending doom, is typified by bands like Funeral from Norway, and Swallow The Sun from Finland. Death metal with its deep growling vocals, and aggressive powerful drumming, is typified by bands such as Crematory from Germany, or In Flames from Sweden. Gothic metal with lyrics that are generally dark and introspective with inspiration from gothic fiction, typified by bands such as Paradise Lost from the UK, or Lacuna Coil from Italy. Symphonic metal combines the heavy drums and guitars of metal with different elements of orchestral classical music which often include female vocals, and is typified by bands such as Nightwish from Finland, or Xandria from Germany. Of course the music created by many bands sits between one or more of the above genres. As a listener to our station, your hear the full spectrum of this style of music, from the haunting vocals of Stefanie Duchêne in Flowing Tears, to the power and intensity of Ronny Thorsen in Trail Of Tears, brought to you commercial free. We hope you enjoy our music, if so please tell your friends, help promote the station, and support the bands you like by buying their music.
