Also, I am down with Emeralds, cause I dig the super low and slow analog synth drones lately.
wait, what album are you talking about? i'm not familiar with Emeralds at all, but low, slow & analog sounds siiiiiiiiick

Sonson's question isn't facepalm-worthy, just naÃ¯ve. I think of drone music as the literal interpretation of the word "drone," anything that's long/continuous/sustained. In the case of Southern Lord acts, guitar feedback does greatly help. but the problem with my interpretation is that there's a huge gray area where things easily get confused with ambient music. i circumnavigate this problem by not giving two shits about genres or labels entirely.

Eternal Tapestry - not not fun (i know that that's the label but it's tagged as that being the album name..noclue)
all i really know about the band is that there are 2 members from jackie o motherfucker, i really like the song 'newdawn' off of this. offers a lot of bright and rough noises and i especially am diggin the guitar tones throughout.

Yeah, I hate it when ppl " " because you dont get something TECHNICALLY accurate but you basically got the gist of it. Plus I was ASKING if thats what it was, not claiming it.
i actually don't see what was so dumb about sonson's question, to answer it flatly ~ yes. even though your description was lazy i'm pretty sure this is what you think it is haha.
Basically, Ratking go suck a cock

most of the artists on here aren't drone
most of them would fit better in the ambient thread
some of them (like emeralds, growing, and a lot on ratkings list) I wouldn't consider ambient or drone in general
drone also DOES consider bands like boris and instrumental drone
and if I made a giant list of artists I love no one would truly care
I think I just quit mumblings

Robedoor, kinda like growing and emeralds, certainly has stuff I would consider drone (their split with Pocohaunted comes to mind)
Most of the stuff around like that reminds me more of noise than anything.
I have a pretty strict definition of drone though
and I definitely don't consider Fennesz or Tim Hecker drone

I would consider something like "Allegory of Allergies" drone but all the newer emeralds is too experimental and distant from the basis of what drone should be
Drone, to me, is swells and waves.
