Re: Any Death/Doom Metal Fans
Nah, Isis isn't even close to Ambient. They are more Doom meets post-rock. People mostly qualify that as post-doom. Isis is a great band though - you have good taste in music. Oh... have you ever seen them live? If not, and ever get the oppertunity to do so, GO! Seriously, they will blow you away. These guys are really convincing on stage.
Candlemass eh? I have heard some of their material, but I can't say I really like their style. Though, alot of people seem to be really into them, so I can't say they suck. And I do have to admit I even liked one or two tunes I heard.
No, Ambient. Hmmm. This is a very unknown genre for alot of people and I honestly can't think of any overall known band that is qualified as Ambient. Like I said, Sunn 0))) (I misspelled Sunn the first time, it's actually with two 'N's) is one of the most well known Doom Ambient bands out there, and some people even consider them to be the founders of this genre. Oh, here's some unexpected info; I heard that David Bowie is the original founder of the Ambient music, but I still doubt that.
