|Weirdest metal albums ever|
Albums are ranked by weirdness, not quality.
Pioneera of sludge where pretty odd back in the day
Black metal but positive
Anthology II:Links From the Dead Trinity
Her vocals are both weird and delightful
Heavy and catchy industrial metal but with some dance influences and lyrics, well... Mainly about fu*king
Screams and Whispers
I've never found another thrash album that sounds like this one
Cyber metal blending house and huge electronics with some truly heavy death metal
Portal of I
Both chaotic and solemn, a progressive melodeath album that fuse heaviness with majesty in a unique way
This is like falling into sleep in an erotic and oniric universe
Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance
Catholic thrash with strange sci-fi atmosphere
The Painter's Palette
Art metal. Literally.
Short Wave on a Cold Day
They switched from prog thrash to avant-garde to indie rock with psychedelic and industrial vibes, and it's also their best.
|44||System of a Down|
System of a Down
The were pretty experimental back then, sounds like a shroom trip, love the armenian influences and spiders is majestic
Those interludes. From a man threatening in.Italian.with a piano background to cookies recipes that sounds like nazi speeches. The songwriting is unique, eulogy has one of the most hypnotic intros ever and stinkfist's fisting metaphor is both uncomfortable and genius
Choirs of the Eye
Kayo dot being kayo dot
|41||Between the Buried and Me|
Switching from pure heaviness to quiet astral atmospheres and suddenly becoming country or swing for some seconds.
Demented oddball avant-garde
Sludge/doom with short songs, incredibly heavy music balanced with a soft vocalist.
There Be Squabbles Ahead
I love Dominique's grotesque clownish style, lifeless is their less weird track and their most depressive one
|37||Carnival in Coal|
Fucked up death metal with dozens of other genres blended together
|35||Old Man Gloom|
Ever wondered how it feels being in a paranoid schizoid'mind? Here's the answer
Dev wreaked all of his weirdness in this. I've never tought to listen a more accurate musical representation of ants. Plus bad devil's combination of industrial and swing is delightful
|33||Screaming Mechanical Brain|
The Process of Assimilation
|32||Faith No More|
King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime
Sure their weirdest release. One of Patton's best performance switching from punkish (digging the grave), to left 4 dead's smoker noises (cuckoo for caca), from gospel (just a man) to whatever it was in ugly in the morning
Are You Kidding Me? No.
Proggy Metalcore with a perfect sound, purania alone contains thrash, swing, electronic and metalcorr influemces. WTHNC is sublime, that zombie track is crazy and the folk/swing bridge in the title track is stellar
Tech death with jazzy signatures and the lowest growls on earth.
|29||Battle Of Mice|
A Day Of Nights
Why is it weird? Julie Christmas. She could make a nickelback album original if she sang in it
|28||Pain of Salvation|
The history of man from the origin to the future, both lyrically and musically. One of the most unconventional prog albums ever.
|27||Dir En Grey|
A grotesque journey into the depths
The Pernicious Enigma
Uhm... Psychedelic hallucinogenic funeral doom with misanthropic lyrics could be a good description
|25||Maximum the Hormone|
3 vocalists, one weirder than the other, aggressive nu metal blended with happy Japanese dance/raggae/ska/kawaii or whatever
Season In Silence
Technical christmas death metal. And trust me, it's cool
The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out...
The entire album is weird but jeez, can't we all dream is the perfect fusion between dream and nightmare
The Sham Mirrors
Cosmic atmosphere black electronic prog metal
|21||Diablo Swing Orchestra|
Sing-Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious
No other band's name could be more appropriate
Tribe of Force
Power metal. A Capella.
The Always Open Mouth
Post hardocre-metalcore with ecstasy/mdma atmospheres
Independent Worm Saloon
Not properly metal but i hear some influences. This is like doing a bad trip while you are running naked after you robbed a bank
The Anatomy of Addiction
Basically a tribal godflesh with unnerving sax and weirder song structure
Jazz grind with John Zorn
The Director's Cut
Patton's versions of movie scotlres. Enough said.
|14||HORSE the band|
Nintendocore. I think it's self explanatory
From prog rock to death metal, Balkan music, folk, electronic, classical and videogame music
Khaooohs And Kon-Fus-Ion
Basically death metal through the point of view of a disturbed six years weird kid
Black metal meets smooth jazz, psychedelic, reggae, electronic, Mongolian throat chants and stoner
Listening to this is surprising every time, Kartsy is a living crossover, switching from pop to dblack metal in 1 second and creating awesome riffs with weird stuff such as a ringtone.
|9||maudlin of the Well|
The perfect balance between relaxing and scary. Tracks like Geography or heaven and weak could lull you to sleep but then it comea nightmarish ones like they weren't all beautiful and ferryman.
|8||Dog Fashion Disco|
A dark concept albums that depicts a descent into insanity with almost every genre possible, which fits perfectly the schizophrenia subjects. Among the weirdest moments there are the nazi jesus speech with discordant cellos, the elevator music part in the hitchicker, the electro swing murderish song, the sex act during private eye and the entirety of sacrifice of miss rose covington
Fables of the Sleepless Empire
Somehow the artwork fits perfectly the music. Beautifully bizarre and chaotic but still somehow elegant, i bet it's pretty hard to cover this guys
The pioneers of weird stuff, featuring basically almost every genre ever and more. The atmosphere is sometimes both relaxing and creepy, such as the masterpiece retrovertigo or totally fucked up like goodbye sober day
Aaah Les Claypool, the god of bass, fucked up music, funny vocals and weird ass lyrics.
|4||Pin-Up Went Down|
Asphodel's vocal Range and versatility is absurd almost like this album, blending ethereal electronics to heavy guitar sound. The growls are both out of place and perfectly fitting, the beat box is just weird, overall one of the most unique albums ever
Similar to a real dark and even more crazy Frank Zappa featurning even country and kazoo solos, the Cheesus spot could be the best thing ever created. Distorted, upsetting and deviously funny
This is like listening to a victorian music record, a black metal cd and an electronic remix....at the same time. Plus, there's a fucking chicken solo!
|1||Sleepytime Gorilla Museum|
Of Natural History
I... Just don't know how to describe it. Often weird bands are unique because of the fusion of more genres into.something totally new. But this is just something never heard before. Unsettling, weird and somehow creepy
