Kyuss
Om
Sleep
Weedeater
Bongzilla
Spirit Caravan
Bongwater 666
Mountains Of Babylon
Zufoomia
Monster Magnet

I love me some stoner/doom metal, one of my favorite genres as well.

I never get around to downloading anything else in the genre, but I love Kyuss and like Monster Magnet. QotSA too, depending on whether you'd count them as part of the genre or not. Probably should get around to giving Mondo Generator and Fu Manchu an honest try too.

I'm relatively new to the stuff, but since I've established doom and black metal as the greatest types of metal outside prog and avant-garde (since both are just applied to actual genres anyway), I've been on a rampage.

High On Fire are good, and they are potheads, but I would call them Groove Metal, not Stoner Metal.

****, how could I forget the inventors of the genre: Black Sabbath. Sweet Leaf is my favorite song ever.

Is there even a point in mentioning Sabbath, everyone knows it. :p
