albums or EPs that either consist entirely of a single track or whose tracks all meld to form one massive song.
I would've laughed if someone had told me that Meshuggah could make a 21-minute song that remained interesting and engaging its entire length before I heard this. Oh boy, was I wrong: this is the band's greatest achievement to date (of course, we'll see how their rumored 2011 album turns out).
|2||Il Velo Di Maya|
Horizons & Gravity
A little-known band crafts an 18-minute track of incredibly epic post-metal goodness on their debut EP.
goes without explanation.
Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
I think this counts, the entire first disc is one 43-minute song. DT aren't my favorite band by any means, but this was still an incredible accomplishment.
39 minutes of the darkest, creepiest, trippiest sludge you've ever laid ears upon. I still think it's a bit funny how France, of all countries, constantly comes out with some of the darkest stuff in metal.
It's an hour-plus slab of naturalistic Cascadian black metal. How can this not be good?
I don't even know what genre to label this as. It's Justin Broadrick pulling off a 50-minute song that, while it's not as good as some of his other work, manages to steer clear of boredom throughout most of its length.
|8||Old Man Gloom|
Seminar III: Zozobra
A 27-minute post-metal monstrosity, the climax and solo that begins near the 21-minute mark is possibly the most epic, badass moment in my entire iTunes library. It's a bluesy solo over a huge, sludgy riff. How can that be anything less than fucking incredible?
|9||Swallow the Sun|
Plague of Butterflies
Disregarding the demo tracks and re-recording included with the EP, this counts. It's 35 minutes of Swallow the Sun's melodic death/doom, and while it's not as good as some of their other songs, it's still a great way to spend half-an-hour of your life.
While this isn't as cohesive of a song as the others on this list, sometimes feeling more like a bunch of separate tracks than a single piece of music, it's some good stuff. Meshuggah's written better, but this, their most experimental work to date, still kicks major ass.
|i know there are some i'm forgetting, refresh my memory. |
i almost included BTBAM's Colors, then decided the backlash would be too strong.
|1 & 10 are fantastic, I found 4 pretty boring|
Crimson should be on this list :D
|also, have you listened to the album Light of Day Day of Darkness. The singer's voice get's kind of annoying (and there's a rough section with a chick pulling a Great Gig In The Sky on drugs 40 minutes in) but it's a wicked hour long track|
|Meshuggah's 'I' their best song, getting OMG - zozobra + pig destroyer - natasha|
5 - French make disturbing films too (Irreversible, High Tension, Martyrs)
|this is a really good list|
|No crimson I'm super pissed|
|Porcupine Tree - 'The Incident'|
NOFX - 'The Decline' (which is actually just one single track).
|Needs X Japan - Art of Life|
|NOFX - The Decline|
|Needs Art of Life and Crimson|
|"sometimes feeling more like a bunch of separate tracks than a single piece of music"|
yeah no fucking shit
|Needs more Crimson.|
|reay sorry for being a n00b and all, but what is this "Crimson" that people are referring to?|
|Edge of Sanity|
|First Opeth, now Edge of Sanity. Come on Wyankeif!|
|WHERE THE FUCK IS Apator - Masturbate in Praise of Black Satan?|
|Melvins- Lysol |
|What's the Moonsorrow album that's one song, check that out.|
|Not a big fan of these 1 track albums|
|yeah needs edge of sanity|
|no Crimson I or II?!|
|Needs more Crimsons and thick as a brick.|
