Daith/doom (Inglis: Death/doom), sometimes written as daith-doom or daithdoom, is an extreme subgenre o hivy metal. It combines the slow tempos an pessimistic or depressive mood o doom metal wi the deep grouling vocals an double kick drummin o daith metal. The genre emergit in the mid 1980s and gained a certain amount of popularity during the 1990s, but haed become less common bi the turn o the 21st century. In turn, daith/doom gave rise tae the closely relatit genre o funeral doom as well as tae the mair melodic an romantic gothic metal.

The daith/doom genre oreeginatit in the mid-1980s when early progenitors like Dream Death began tae mix traditional doom metal wi the soonds o thrash an the nascent daith metal scene. Early records bi such baunds as Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride an Anathema (kent as the Peaceville Three due tae the fact aw three wur on Peaceville Records at the time an aw) combined the soonds o mid-1980s Celtic Frost an Candlemass wi the uise o female vocals, keybouids an, in the case o My Dying Bride, violins. The influence o these baunds haes been acknowledgit bi the likes o Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, The Gathering, Celestial Season an Saturnus. The tag o daith/doom seemit tae become less popular towards the end o the decade as mony o the scene progenitors abandoned their early soond tae embrace a mair accessible or palatable direction. Housomeivver, the style persists in the form o funeral doom, a heichlie relatit genre that emergit in the mid-1990s, pairticularly in the form o Finnish baunds such Thergothon, Unholy an Skepticism.
