I have no effing idea. Most of the music I like falls into indie and experimental, but those terms are so broad that they don't have much meaning. I like Radiohead, Animal Collective, Mute Math... that kind of stuff.
(Or whatever you'd call Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Ozzy's first two solo albums, if indeed you'd consider all those groups in the same sub-genre.)
Spaghetti Western Music
Strong melodies and epic scope. Love it.
And um...Spanish Guitar Music. No...Instrumental Guitar Virtuoso Music. No...Mournful Celtic Music. No...Pink Floyd. Wait, that's a band, not a genre. Um...
I have very eclectic music tastes and the traditional genres don't usually match up well for me. Although one exception would be Romantic Period Classical Music. Modest Mussorgsky, Charles-Valentin Alkan, and Rimsky-Korsakov are the ones that immediately jump to mind but there are plenty of others that I enjoy
I am also a big fan of Film and Game Music. This really isn't a genre in its own right, but I am a very visual person and I greatly enjoy music that I have a visual connection to. I do tend to lean towards the Classical and Classical-esq music here, but these genres are by no means dominant.
Foreign Music is another ambiguous category, I listen to a lot of foreign folk music but also more modern songs - some in genres I'd probably never listen to in English.
rock, (hair)metal and a bit more rock
Film/Games, Classical/Orchestrated, and Country
Neo-classical metal, metal and techno.
I wouldn't really call Jex Thoth doom metal... When I think of doom metal I think of like Esoteric.
Whoah with everybody and metal... hehehe...
People say I have eclectic tastes in music and I do have a song or two from the most mainstream singers/bands to some of the obscure indie artists... But all in all, I find many of my songs are:
Pop (you name the cheeziest/overplayed/one-hit-wonder artists from the '80s, '90s, and '00s, I probably have it and listens to it on my iPod--Milli Vanilli, Human Nature, El Debarge, Backstreet Boys, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, Fra Lippo Lippi, Roxette, Peter Cetera, Katie Perry, Lighthouse Family)
R&B (the likes of John Legend, Ne-Yo, Boyz-II-Men, Lauryn Hill, Keith Sweat, Alicia Keys, Omarion, Usher, Shanice)
Hip-Hop (Kanye West, Outkast, Nas, Kid Cudi, T.I., TuPac, Bone Thugs, Public Enemy, DMX, Ludacris, Coolio)
Plus, being a Yoko Kanno fan, I have a humongous amount of soundtrack music... We're talking about 150+ songs from Yoko Kanno here...

LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!
Warning for example with Pentagram or Witchfinder General, or something like Electric Wizard. It's all doom but each with their own distinct feel. Even a band like Blood Ceremony, I'd say, play a kind of doom metal. Then there are bands like Esoteric like you mentioned or even early Katatonia.
Genre confusion aside, it's all good stuff. What would you call Jex Thoth? I think they are quite reminiscent of Black Sabbath at times, but then again, doom metal owes _everything_ to Black Sabbath.
