Modern doom metal is slow and dark, depressed and atmospheric. Heavy guitars, heavy pounding drums, and at times use of guttural death vocals. Typical examples of this genre are My Dying Bride, older Paradise Lost and Esoteric. Gothic doom metal (or simply gothic metal) is an atmospheric, romantically oriented type of music where often duets between a male death voice and a female soprano are used. Examples are Theatre of Tragedy and Tristania.
