metal chillout records for g(r/h)ey skies

get lost in the cold vibes and hot cocoa (or caca if youre an indie rocker). this is my most sputnik list, no elite stuff here
1Amorphis
Tales from the Thousand Lakes


i prefer karelian isthmus but this is great, experimental takes me away to another land, a land o lakes. you really feel like youre the indian girl when you listen to this, except she's trapped on the album cover
2Katatonia
Dance of December Souls


wimpy but mildly heavy, slow synths and shit makes me think of video games. has an anime feel
3Agalloch
Pale Folklore


the best from the sputnik masters of atmospheric wintery american vegan black metal, i dont really jam these guys anymore but every once in a while it hits the spot and this is the go-to typically.
4Opeth
Orchid


i care as much about opeth as i do about the price of women's underwear but this is a transportative atmospheric journey, the prog stuff isnt overblown, the formula of "growls then an acoustic clean part" wasnt really a formula yet, it was just badass. solid ass production, not a girly album like some of the others. plus the black metal feel is still here
5Edge of Sanity
The Spectral Sorrows


opeth before opeth and riffier! sweet. fits the vibe. sword in hand
6Dimmu Borgir
Enthrone Darkness Triumphant


mountain dew personified, galloping through a forest and wearing a cloak or some shit. a solid listen from one of the most reviled bands
7Unanimated
In The Forest Of The Dreaming Dead


finally a "trve" record on here, yall can feel the melodies pouring out
8Sarcasm (SWE)
A Touch of the Burning Red Sunset


not as well known as the others but this is melodic death metal that has atmosphere and rules, takes you on a journey
9At the Gates
The Red in the Sky Is Ours


sputnik wasnt ready to hear it 10 years ago and opted for slaughter of the chode. this is an album i didnt really get into until last year just because i didnt give a shit about this band. early ATG has vibes, atmosphere, riffs, melody, very unique
10Skyclad
A Burnt Offering for the Bone Idol


excellent cheesy folk metal stuff that rocks, fans of the UK sabbat will dig for obvious reasons. a flagon of ale please. all the new dummy bands should take a gander
11Gorement
The Ending Quest


awesome swedish dm that takes you on a journey through a medieval field or something like that, it may be from sweden but it sounds closer to finland but more melodic. anyone clicking on this list has probably heard this but its always worth a bump
12Darkthrone
Soulside Journey


user valendreth's review sums up why this is an essential listen for these curl up by the fire days. put liquor in your hot chocolate
13Bathory
Hammerheart


a masterpiece that transcends time and space and is one of the only good "viking metal" albums ever. a must for the season of cold muontaintops and cabins and ships and shit. fuck amon amarth
