Who is doom metal?

 
 Black Cobra. Doom, sludge, they are interchangeable.

1.Celtic Frost
2.Samael
3.Beseech
4.Paradise Lost
5.Pentagram
6.Trouble
7.Primordial
8.Electric Wizard
9.Candlemass

 High on Fire, Sleep, Acid King, Orange Goblin... I love that god-of-the-riff, bottom heavy, often slow, turgid southern music found in doom/sludge metal. In general despite being from the Seattle area I think all my favorite music hails from the south.

 Wizard is an english band but very much a part of the sound.

 Anyway, sorry to take the thread elsewhere. But my initial recommendation stands.

Been listening to them for a while now.  Wasn't sure if they'd satisfy the OP's itch.  Just out of curiosity, Chris, do you prefer the newer or older stuff?  I prefer the newer stuff but old fans (before the original singer/songwriter left) seem to absolutely hate the newer stuff.

There is a distinct difference between Spocks Beard - old and new (after Neil Morse left). I distinctly prefer the original band with Neil in it, but YMMV. The new band seems to be successful, but it just doesn't have the same sound and energy and originality.

If you do like the old sound, and are partial to Flower Kings too, then I recommend checking out Transatlantic. It's a sort of super band.

I kinda put Spock's Beard, Flower Kings, & RPWL, from what I've heard of them in the frillery fru-fur camp of prog rock.  Just not quite my thing.  I prefer far less keyboard, far more guitar riff, manlier vocals.

Yep, that's what I thought you were lookin' fer.

Boysetsfire?  Vocals aren't too bad.  Guitar writing is pretty good.  Maybe not prog enough for you and they unfortunately have a few too many arena-style anthems.  Tomorrow Come Today is my fav album.

Nothingface?  Growl + clean vocals.  Kick-arse riffage.  Their last album Skeletons definitely approached prog in some songs.

Interesting....the end actually reminds me of a lot of modern trance music.

I haven't seen them mentioned, but you might like Symphony X

Since you don't like the growly lyrics, what about some of the heavier instrumental guitar stuff like:

How does King Crimsons' post 1981 work compare to their pre 1981 work?

Progressive metal department:

Fates Warning "Disconnected" is very, very good. The band's catalog is a bit spotty but this is their best IMO. They added Kevin Moore, who was a big part of Dream Theater's two best albums (Images & Words, Awake) and made a big difference with FW. Kevin also worked on their "A Pleasent Shade of Gray" album.  Jim Matheos' guitar, Mark Zonder's drums and Ray Alder's (who I much prefer to James LaBrie) vocals are all first rate.

I lost track of Fates Warning after Perfect Symmetry, unfortunately.  Good to hear they're still going strong.  Have you checked out OSI?  It's Matheos, Moore and a few other great players.  I think it's good but not great.  Moore does some singing and he's not as strong a singer as a keyboardist.
