I'll have to check out Neurosis as well. I've just started getting into the heavier stuff. I still love my prog but this stuff is very powerful and just kicks my ass.

Shrinebuilder really sounds nothing like Om except in a few seconds where Al Cisneros takes the lead on vocals, but it's pretty solid stoner/doom metal through and through. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know much about Melvins, but the recent Nude With Boots is really nice sludgy metal. I also really like Neurosis' latest, Given to the Rising - dark and heavy as hell (their classic stuff is also worth checking out, Through Silver in Blood etc). Not a huge fan of Wino's stuff, it's not really heavy/extreme enough for me. None of these sound ANYTHING like Om, who are pretty unique as far as I know.

I'm just getting into them now with Conference of the Birds. I'm getting ready to explore further - the new one seems like a good place to go. I've never heard any of the other bands though. Is this record a good starting point, or should I be grabbing something else? Om rocks! I’m just getting into them now with Conference of the Birds.
