Favorite Black and White Albums

A list of my favorite albums with black and white covers. There's grey mixed in so it isn't a true kvlt list, but is unavoidable if the album art rules. Rec's are appreciated based on the taste of this list and if the album covers are black/white/grey - I'll add it here.
1Dodecahedron
Dodecahedron


Idk man, it's kinda hard for me to step away from this album. It isn't perfect, but what's executed when the band settles into some of these songs is exactly why I love this genre.
2Thantifaxath
Sacred White Noise


A pleasant surprise for me.
3Dodecahedron
Kwintessens


Yeah, I also really enjoyed this.

Still a bit too disjointed of a release and I wish it was ironed out a little bit more, but the addition of post-rocky atmosphere is not entirely out of place either. The 2.5 review does kind of upset me.
4Mr. Bungle
Disco Volante


Yeah, I'll count it.
5Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F♯ A♯ ∞
6Tool
Ænima
7Deathspell Omega
Diabolus Absconditus


Thinking this might be a little underrated?
8Deathspell Omega
Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum


Deathspell has a chain that goes from me to this album.
9Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures
10Cult Leader
Lightless Walk


This album just grows and grows. Fantastic live as well. I have this on cassette from the show which was on a steady rotation in my car for a while.

Ghoulin'.
58Centinex
Malleus Maleficarum


For some reason, I love this. Not sure how popular it is, or Centinex for that matter, on here tho
59System of a Down

I still can't place where this sits with System... probably 3rd.

Most of my post-metal days seem to be over, but this album certainly is a fond memory.
66Ion Dissonance

69Neurosis
Given to the Rising
70Caspian

Woah, just discovered this. This is so Portal but with chunkier tempos and breakdown riffs and less rasp vocals. Not as complex but groovy. Nice addition
72Pillorian
Obsidian Arc


Thanks for the rec, DarkZero!

Maybe a little too white, but Whittler of Fortune always has my heart.

79Spirit Adrift
Behind - Beyond


Nice. This is also new to my ears
80Ufomammut
Snailking


Gentle crushes
81Ulver
Messe I.X-VI.X


Don't know my way around Ulver too well but I always enjoy this even though I can't "pick" a rating for it. Sits anywhere between a 3.5 and a 5 depending, which is broad I know, but very enjoyable nonetheless.
82Mgla
Exercises in Futility


My highest rated Mgla. I should jam them more.
83Mgla
Further Down the Nest


I like this one too.
84Meth Drinker
Meth Drinker


Good 'nuff.

86Ophis
Withered Shades


Let's get roasted.
87Entropia (PL)
Vesper


Am I falling in love with this new genre, or....

Endless hours of going through this site is what makes stuff like this all the more worthwhile. The title track is also a perfect piece. People talk about hard 5's, I don't think there is a more apt example than this.
88Rorschach
Remain Sedate


Switchin' it up a bit. A new discovery as well, but I'd call it a hardcore classic.
89Rorschach
Needlepack


Same as above. Adding it for consistency.
90Naked City
Naked City


Oh yeah, this. This is the only release I've heard from Naked City, but why wouldn't you want to put this on for the wonderful kicks now and then?
91The Slow Death
The Slow Death


Slow and Deadly, oof.
92Dead Kennedys
Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables

93Interpol
Interpol


I know I've heard Interpol before but I couldn't name a song if you wanted me to. I found this to be very enjoyable even though I'm not familiar with the band. Thanks for the rec, Point1!
