Drone doom characterization seems a bit weird. Don't get me wrong, some of the most Nightmare Fuel bands in all metal are in drone, but there's plenty of it that's just regular ambient played with distorted guitars instead of synths.

Earth really, really need a page. It seems undeniably odd that Sunn O))), a band that admit to being one big Earth tribute (/Ascended Fanboys) have one, and Earth don't...May i create one?

Since I'm not entirely savvy with all of the musical sub-genres, I just wanna check: could Minsk be placed under the "Post-Metal" section? They seem to draw enough of an influence from Neurosis, but I just wanted to double-check.

Hmm, this page is great and all, there an index for this somewhere?

I'm trying to index the page on Stinking Lizaveta, but I can't find any indexes for creators at all. :/

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm stupid. Found it. Weirdly, on that page it said "Also see: Mayhem" in the hottip for Sunn O)))))). Huh. Never woulda made that connection myself.

Sorry to sound like a genre Nazi, bu Stoner Metal and Stoner Rock are not entirely interchangeable. Stoner Rock tends to be more groove oriented and less, well, doomy. Stoner Metal is considerably slower and heavier than Stoner rock is. This is Stoner rock, while this is Stoner Metal.

Yeah, you're right; I may have exaggerated how close they are. I'll edit the article now.

Question remains, though - should we keep the stoner rock bands on the list? Most of them qualify as metal anyway (just not in the same exact style as Electric Wizard).

I'm just wondering, does anyone have any objection to me adding Type O Negative to the list? They're mainly considered gothic metal, but a lot of their songs are definitely doom. I feel like they would easily fit on the list of traditional doom bands, but others may not agree with their placement, so I want to get any problems out of the way before adding them.
