I know a lot of people who have problems with Funeral Doom Metal.
They say it's too slow, boring, unengaging and formulaic. They say that the atmosphere is simply not interesting, that being bleak and sombre is simply a boring expression that a hundred other bands can do. As a genre it's stale and uninteresting, and every band just sounds the same.
They say that it's over long and not dynamic enough to really interest anyone. That the riffs are boring and predictable and the vocals are either grating clean wails or half-assed growls. The songs are fifteen minutes long and are basically two different riffs.
These people should NOT listen to "Coronation Of The Black Sun".
