|20 Random Albums I Adore|
Top-Tier Caverncore. I love the dissonance on this thing.
Those Once Loyal
Their best album, end of discussion. Pretty much perfect from beginning to end.
All three of their LP's are amazing. This one is a personal favorite. Something about this band is magical.
I can't explain the love I have for this band. This style of French sludge is so up my alley it's not even funny.
Everyone knows this rules. A one man project done to near perfection.
August in the Urals
I usually avoid modern prog like the plague, but fuck this album is amazing. It doesn't sound retro, but their style is very pleasing to the ear.
Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire...
The best Emperor album. Ihsahn's masterpiece.
|8||The Fall of Troy|
How does anyone think their debut is better? No, seriously.
Songs to Leave
Aside from Shining, the perfect DSBM band. Their follow-up is phenomenal as well.
The Sleep of Morbid Dreams
The perfect modern death metal album.
Where The Light Is
This is a pretty unbelievable concert. To say the man is talented is an understatement. This easily beats out any of his studio albums and pretty much encompasses his career perfectly.
L'un Sans L'Autre
I pretty much detest the emo genre as a whole and have never heard a single album I could stomach. Until I heard this. How I can love an emo album this much still surprises me. And to think two of these dudes later formed Celeste. Two bands, two massive achievements.
Who Can You Trust?
Massively underrated. 3rd best trip-hop after Mezzanine and Portishead s/t.
Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child
Beautiful album. Probably the best use of dissonance I've ever heard.
Fucking Wino. Pure rock'n'roll that's catchy as hell.
Don't care for their other albums, but damn, this is a spacy, psychedelic adventure.
C is for...
The best and also the only good Puscifer release. Short but absolutely mesmerizing.
I'll be honest, Sun Ra's discography is mostly self-indulgent mumbo-jumbo. This, however, is one of the most beautiful, atmospheric, trippy albums I've ever heard. Like a more chilled out Bitches Brew.
The production is a bit questionable, but Terje Rypdal makes some gorgeous music and this is his best, most balanced album. The third disc, Unfinished Highballs, is fantastic as well.
The Wild Hunt
Not really a big Watain fan, but this is an example of when a band branches out and tries new things and it just fucking works.
