10. YOB - Catharsis (2003)
This is YOB's finest effort. Where the band perfectly blended the standard psychedelic stoner/doom set by Sleep and Electric Wizard with their own unique heavy sludge style they would adapt later. The array of pulverizing riffs Mike S. unleashes on us is seemingly endless and so dense you feel like your entire skull will cave in at any moment. From the crushing opener "Aeons", to the astral and spacey atmosphere of the jam-ridden closer "Catharsis" the album is absolutely flawless.
