    Doomed to Fail: The Incredibly Loud History of Doom, Sludge, and Post-Metal

    https://www.amazon.com/Doomed-Fail-I.../dp/1644280647


    Doomed to Fail explores the heaviest music the world has ever heard, tracing doom, sludge, and post-metal as their own distinct (and incredibly loud) traditions. Anselmi covers the bands and musicians that have impacted those styles most―Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Melvins, Eyehategod, Godflesh, Neurosis, Saint Vitus, and many others―while diving into the cultural doom that has spawned such music, from the bombing of Birmingham and hurricane devastation of New Orleans to glaring economic inequality, industrial alienation, climate change, and widespread addiction. Along the way, Anselmi interweaves the musical experiences that have led him to proudly identify as one of the doomed.

    Despite my open hostility to the term "post-metal", this looks mighty enticing.

    Do you know if this book will cover "funeral doom", doom/death or what some call "gothic doom"? [eg: Disembowelment, Esoteric, Skepticism, Anathema/ParadiseLost/MDB]

    I like to complicate things sometimes by adding "Proto" before "Post," or vice versa.

    I'd be interested to know if the book covers that stuff as well (and Swallow The Sun among many others). By the way, there is a newish book about Paradise Lost:

    Can't say for certain but this seems like it's going to be pretty in-depth so it would seem like it.
