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!
Ramble Beyond

Somehow makes you feel as if you are indeed in the Smoky Mountains. An exemplary release.
3Blown Out
New Cruiser

Truly psychedelic stoner rock, with no vocals and long winding songs. But can drone on a bit.
4Bone Man

Music is awesome. Good mix of Grunge (little fuzz) and psychedelia.
5Colour Haze
Colour Haze

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.
7Elder (USA-MA)
Reflections of a Floating World

Exemplary...album deserves 100% all the strong accolades it has received.

An excellent album.
9Lucid Planet
Lucid Planet

A quite trippy (especially the first track) and progressive metal album.
10Mars Red Sky
Mars Red Sky

Quite awesome. Airy vocals. Strong and heavy riffing, with a psychedelic undercurrent.
11My Sleeping Karma

Really ebbs and flows. Vocals are meditative primarily. Progressive metal, with heavy to light/tense interludes.
12Monster Magnet
Spine of God

The benchmark...what more can I say.

Psychedelic doom with distorted vocals. A feel similar to Monster Magnet.
Dos EP's

Punk rock vibe and vocal styling, with psychedelia mixed in.
15Samsara 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.
16Somali Yacht Club
The Sun

An all-around excellent album!
17Sophie's Earthquake
The Flood

Same here (see above).
18The Atomic Bitchwax
The Atomic Bitchwax

Also a benchmark
19The 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.
21Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats
Blood Lust

A mix between the Beatles and Black Sabbath?
22Wo Fat

Dig this!
