|My Favorite Heavy Psych|
Ever since hearing Monster Magnet's "Into the Void" off of Nativity In Black II, I was hooked into their incorporation of psychedelia within a stoner rock framework. Although I don't listen to this genre consistently; I have proceeded to, over time, expand my Monster Magnet CD collection and branch out to other similar bands. Including Monster Magnet, these are my favorite heavy psych albums that I have found, in alphabetical order.
These Swedes have outdone themselves. Just plain awesome!
Somehow makes you feel as if you are indeed in the Smoky Mountains. An exemplary release.
Truly psychedelic stoner rock, with no vocals and long winding songs. But can drone on a bit.
Music is awesome. Good mix of Grunge (little fuzz) and psychedelia.
Not too heavy or light, and certainly never a boring listen. Vocals are present but used sparingly.
Rhythms From a Cosmic Sky
Great…the real deal. 20 minutes songs. Heavy psychedelic and stoner rock, with no vocals.
Reflections of a Floating World
Exemplary...album deserves 100% all the strong accolades it has received.
An excellent album.
A quite trippy (especially the first track) and progressive metal album.
|10||Mars Red Sky|
Mars Red Sky
Quite awesome. Airy vocals. Strong and heavy riffing, with a psychedelic undercurrent.
|11||My Sleeping Karma|
Really ebbs and flows. Vocals are meditative primarily. Progressive metal, with heavy to light/tense interludes.
Spine of God
The benchmark...what more can I say.
Psychedelic doom with distorted vocals. A feel similar to Monster Magnet.
Punk rock vibe and vocal styling, with psychedelia mixed in.
|15||Samsara Blues Experiment|
Long Distance Trip
An excellent psychedelic stoner rock groove. Limited vocals, which when sung are not the best. But the music makes up for the vocals.
|16||Somali Yacht Club|
An all-around excellent album!
Same here (see above).
|18||The Atomic Bitchwax|
The Atomic Bitchwax
Also a benchmark
|19||The Cosmic Dead|
The Cosmic Dead
A little bit more on the psychedelic rock side, but still excellent.
The Strangest of All Guests Is At the Door
Made by the same personnel as Lucid Planet. A quirky album with moments of extreme brilliance.
|21||Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats|
A mix between the Beatles and Black Sabbath?
