Try Jesu and Boris. There my favorite drone bands.

Also look for Southernlord Record, they have great line up for Droning Doom bands that are good. The infamous Sunn O))) is also signed in that record label. Also the great Stephen O'Malley has other drone bands that he playedworked on like Burning Witch and Khanate just to name a few.

I dont really like drone metal at all but I thought I would just point out that Sleep are not drone metal... They are a bloody awesome band though!

Yea Sleep is more Stoner Doom but they get also be thrown in to Drone because of bands similarities with Teeth Of The Lions Rule The Divine, Jesu, and Boris. Which have that stoner doom element but still beeing a Drone band.

There are many types of Drone just like death metal, but its hard to tell the difference when your inexpirienced with the genre.

Sleep is more stoner doom, but Jesu, Boris, Sunn O))), and Earth are great.
