Everyone (other websites, magazines, boards, etc) has been all over The Gates of Slumber. But I just don't hear it. I reviewed their new album for MU, and it just sounds like some run of the mill Sabbath-esque doom. Am I missing anything?

I think it all depends on how high you hold originality. I think they're good, but are they original? Of course not.

As long as the niche doesn't get too crowded, I'm quite happy with more "run of the mill Sabbath-esque doom" :-) It could definitely get old fast if too many bands jumped on that bandwagon, however.
