This kind of relates to a few things in this thread, not just the quote.

I'm a relatively upbeat, happy person. I'm productive, like my life and the direction it is going. It hasn't always been that way.

I use a lot the genre qualities of doom (ideology and sonic), along with black metal for that matter, to work on something along the veins of both with post-rock elements.

I find it cathartic personally, it's a way of dredging up everything haunting my memories so it doesn't eat me up inside.

I don't find it depressing, as while it can be hard to get out initially, the poetic interpretation of it (when I write lyrics) adds a dimension to it that is less self-destructive, more positive.

Kind of symbolically, it brings the darkness out into the light where it can't exist anymore, not in the state it was.
A disquiet mind at therapy with the music.
