Another form of doom, known as "post-metal" or "atmospheric sludge metal", combined sludge metal with PostRock. Certain post-metal bands, such as Isis, Neurosis and Pelican, have gained recognition in the metal scene, but this success has been met with backlash from [[FanDumb certain people]], who refer to it as "hipster metal" (and, for some reason, lump them in with Music/{{Mastodon}}, who are not a post-metal band despite taking influences from sludge metal). It is, however, debatable whether post-metal even qualifies as a doom metal subgenre (or even a metal subgenre at that), and most doom purists are likely to consider it as merely "heavy post-rock", claiming that these bands take very little influence from the doom style.

The genre technically started right at the beginning of metal, with the aforementioned Black Sabbath, who are near universally considered the first true metal band. Another classic metal band, Pentagram, was also a key part of doom metal, though the genre was not truly formed until a tiny bit later on, with several other influential bands including Music/SaintVitus, Pagan Altar, Trouble, and Witchfinder General. It should be noted that several of the early traditional doom bands, as well as more recent bands following in their footsteps, often lack certain stereotypes associated with the genre. Some of the bands have faster paced songs, and a few were quite upbeat in tone, while still retaining the Sabbath influence. Possibly, the most influential of the doom metal bands was {{Candlemass}}, who released their debut album ''[[CanisLatinicus Epicus Doomicus Metallicus]]'' in 1986. It was this album that brought doom metal to greater attention in metal circles, when it had been previously seen as more of a niche genre. Alongside the Black Sabbath track "Hand of Doom", It's also possibly where the name of the genre came from ("Doomicus Metallicus" = "Doom Metal"; "Hand of Doom" = "Doom Metal").

Technically they are different subgenres, however the distinction is frequently very hard to grasp, so they've been lumped in together (A basic guide: traditional doom = Saint Vitus, epic doom = Candlemass). This style is rooted in '70s rock and metal, and it becomes obvious in their presentation and sound; they sound as if punk never happened. ''For epic doom bands, some '80s metal, specifically the operatic vocals and gated drums, is mixed in. Shred-style leadwork is also present with some epic doom acts.''

* TropeMaker: The actual creation of doom metal as a genre can be blamed on a few bands, including Saint Vitus, Candlemass, Trouble and Witchfinder General. Sludge, meanwhile, can generally be pinpointed to Black Flag (''My War'' has been ''massively'' influential to the genre), Melvins, and Flipper.
