- adj. Suggesting doom.
Their thundering machines filled the sky with a “doomlike sound,” creating a “spectacle of war” that made Pyle and the men he was with forget for a moment the danger they were in.
And then a new sound gradually droned into our ears, a sound deep and all-encompassing with no notes in it—just a gigantic faraway surge of doomlike sound.
The meaning seemed vague but the tone was doomlike enough.
