10. Red Fang - Murder The Mountains


Ever wonder what a mix between the Melvins and Kyuss would sound like? All you would need to do is listen to "Murder The Mountains", Red Fang's second full length. On it they hone this mixture to perfection. Each track is great and completely varied from the sludgy opening of "Malverde", with vocals from guitarist Maurice Bryan Giles reminiscent of King Buzzo himself. To "Wires" which sounds alot like something off of "Blues For The Red Sun" complete with a searing psychedelic solo at the songs climax, and melodic vocals from bassist Aaron Beam that will never leave your head once you hear them. And onward the album never stays the same.

09. Corrupted - Garten Der Unbewusstheit


On Corrupted's fifth and sadly last full length, they pull a surprise yet stunning genre change. Gone for the most part is the raw sludge that made up their other records, the only thing lingering from them is front-man Hevi's beastly growl. The music now as best as I could describe it would be funeral doom styled post metal. It's a slow, lumbering, majestic, heavy and ultimately mournful dirge. That makes you feel it's intense pain as you are mesmerized for the entire time it plays.

08. Windhand - Windhand


If I was lazy I would have summed up this band by writing , lovers of Electric Wizard seek this out at once. Windhand's debut album is nothing short of mammoth. Five slabs of blistering, molten psychedelic occult doom. This stuff's completely smothered in a dark and evil atmosphere. That wouldn't nearly work as good, in my opinion without the haunting vocals of Dorthia Cottrell. Her droning yet melodic singing is the album's highlight, and accompanied with riffs heavier than the sun make for an amazing experience.

07. Virus - The Agent That Shapes The Desert


Virus will probably be one of the weirdest if not the weirdest experimental rock band you'll come across. They're not for everyone, but their blend of progressive/fusion and desert rock is highly addictive for those listeners that get sunken into Virus's lunacy. The dissonant riffs, jazzy drum fills and fretless bass playing swirl around Czarl's monotonous croon. The entire album is extremely enjoyable with no weak moments, but no moments that really stick out neither.

06. Altar of Plagues - Mammal


Irish Post-Black Metalers, Altar of Plagues have created the sub-genres first true masterpiece. Everything just feels huge-er and more lean than their debut. Getting the drummer from Abaddon Incarnate(one of the most awesome grind bands ever), Johnny King helped out tremendously as well. His drumming while his not being overly technical is fluid and dynamic. Adding to the more metallic punch the record has. The best song is easily the behemoth that's the opening track "Neptune Is Dead", with its hypnotic riffing and bouncing grove. It's a really long track that never looses your attention, even when it dips into dark and unsettling ambiance for periods of time.

Can I just copy and paste this in my thread? I have no idea how to write about black metal.

Holy shit, that third track is one of the most haunting pieces of music I've listened to this year!

Yeah that track is really uniquely awesome, took me awhile to grow on it though. It's a great breather from the onslaught of "Feather And Bone".

I know! It takes a little time to grow on you I guess. I listened to it four times in a row after I heard the whole album and I was flabbergasted. It is minimalistic musically but provides the perfect setting for the finale of the album.

Look forward to the rest of your list man!
