Creating good music might not be an easy task, but most bands in existence consist of multiple members who contribute to the music. One-man bands however are simply musicians who create the music all by themselves, which, in my opinion, is very impressive. Because of the fact that there are quite a few of these talented musicians, I created this list. Of course there are many more one-man band albums than I have listed here and that's why I'm open to suggestions. So be sure to give me recommendations and also let me know if I listed the "wrong" album by a band (in your opinion). Lastly, the list is ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. I only add 1 (full-length) album per band (and only albums that are featured on MS).

What about the 10 billion albums I sent you? xD
Alex Fenger - 26.08.2013 at 04:55  
Wow, the lists just keep on coming. Good idea for one I have to say. A few I can suggest are; Paysage d'Hiver (Winterkälte), Leviathan (Massive Conspiracy Against All Life), Infestus (E x i | S t), Igorrr (Nostril), Gnaw Their Tongues (L'Arrivée De La Terne Mort Triomphante), Cloak Of Altering (Ancient Paths Through Timeless Voids), Murmuure (s/t), Hjarnidaudi (Pain:Noise:March), Sombres Forets (La Mort Du Soleil), Hlidolf (V01D), and Wormlust (The Feral Wisdom). If I think of anymore I'll be sure to let you know.

Edit: Added my favorite album by each suggestion.
Rodney - 26.08.2013 at 05:55  
Are EP's allowed on the list? If so I'd recommend Gallowbraid's EP Ashen Eidolon for this list.
mz - 26.08.2013 at 09:34  
You definitely like making lists. Don't you ?
Alex Lemon has mentioned all of the bands which I was going to suggest. So check them all
Also, I think making a list about the best EPs would be great idea. Someone do that please
Dark†SymphonY - 26.08.2013 at 20:39  
Another new list? Well I don't mind your lists and this one is good idea. Hmmm... the only one that comes to mind is Sirenia's Sixes and Sevens.
Dark†SymphonY - 26.08.2013 at 22:01  
Found a couple more:
Myrkgrav - Trollskau, Skrømt Og Kølabrenning - Lars "Leiðólfr" Jensen (Norway)
Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde - Stéphane "Neige" Paut (France)
Falkenbach - ...Magni Blandinn Ok Megintiri... - Markus "Vratyas Vakyas" Tümmers (Germany)

I'll comment again if I find more
Marcel Hubregtse - 27.08.2013 at 14:26  
Alcest is actually a two man band since 2009, so you can keep Souvenirs in this list
Apothecary - 27.08.2013 at 16:28  
Well since you already beat me to the idea then, I think it'd be better to just give you some suggestions rather than being redundant and doing my own One Man list
1. Aarni: Finnish experimental doom project of Markus Marjomaa
2. Pensées Nocturnes: French neoclassical black metal project of Vaerohn. Has a very orchestral type of composition to it, which is pretty amazing for just one guy.
3. Botanist: American experimental black metal project of Roberto Martinelli. Very environmentally-themed lyrics/album art, and the only instruments the guy uses are drums, his vocals, and a fucking hammered dulcimer. Creates an amazing, minimalist sound, and Botanist are def one of the peak bands in the evolution of black metal over the past decade.
4. Sombres Forêts: Canadian black metal project of Annatar. Kinda neoclassical, with some beautiful piano and clean guitar at certain points, but not to the crazy point of Pensées Nocturnes. Probably the least experimental band I put on this list but still good.

Enjoy and keep finding good music!
Death_95 - 28.08.2013 at 04:44  
Great fucking list!

You forgot one of my favorite albums ever! Melancholie² by Coldworld.

Don't worry, a lot of them are already added and expect most (if not all) to be added eventually.

Thanks. I've been checking out quite a few of those and will eventually check them all out. However, I won't add the first suggestion seeing as that band only has demo's and split albums. Don't worry if I added the "wrong" album... your favourites might very well replace the ones I chose when I check 'em out.

Written by Rodney on 26.08.2013 at 05:55

I would say they're not allowed but I'll make an exception for now, simply because it's a great EP. And when the first full length album gets released in 2014, it's highly likely it'll replace the EP on this list.

Yep, I do like making them, hahaha. Hell, I'll probably do a sequel to this list: two-man band albums. But I'm not the right person for creating an EP's list because I barely listen to EP's anyway, so it would be an incredibly short list. Anyway, will check out Alex' suggestions, thanks.

Glad you like the idea. As I said in the shoutbox, for some reasons I thought the female vocalist on Sirenia's debut was actually a band member, hence why I didn't add it in the first place.

Well, as I said you can still create your own list, but then with only black metal albums and not 1 album/band like I have here (so a more elitist list). Ah well, it's up to you. Anyway, added all of those. Especially Aarni was really great, definitely my cup of tea. Also Botanist was quite... unique. Not very accessible music, but somehow I still liked it.

Thanks man! I added the album because it's indeed great stuff. Really liked the atmosphere throughout that album, so good I finally checked it out after you recommending it a few times before.

Well, he uses a lot of guest/session musicians and those are not band members. That's why I added him. That being said, I just removed him from the list because although what I said is still true, he indeed doesn't fit this list seeing as pretty much every other musician on the list actually does do everything himself and Arjen needs guest/session musicians to complete his work. This is true for Sirenia as well, but seeing as it's only a session vocalist in this case, I'm keeping that one of the list (hell, for the sake of variety I also want a gothic album on here ). Btw, I don't like it when people don't give me suggestions.

tea[m]ster - 01.09.2013 at 17:42

Well, initially I did both one-man bands and one-man projects, but now only the one-man bands. Seeing as, for example, Ayreon uses session/guest musicians all the time I removed him because I feel he's out of place here. However, he's pretty extreme in that sense and there are barely any others like that, so if there's a case of just 1 session/guest musician, then I'll probably just add them.

Thanks for the suggestions and I'll check them out. No post-metal at all on the list as of now, so good you try to create a little more variety. Oh, and tell me which albums I need to check out of those bands.

Written by Lit. on 01.09.2013 at 23:11

Okay, will check it out but there's a chance I won't add it seeing as it's grindcore (which I dislike in general). I might make an exception for once though.

I've heard such thing about MoRT in this interview:

Q:Vindsval is solely credited on The Desanctification. What are the advantages to working alone?

A:The trilogy 777 is a very personal project - it was absolutely impossible for me to let someone else work on it. It was the same thing for MoRT - this is my soul and my flesh.

Yea, Interval 1 is fucking gorgeous! You should check out their new album's artwork in the news.


Despite the new one being more subtle, it's also an incredible cover (very detailed). Looking forward to checking out this stuff.

Also Evilfeast


Now that is a good suggestion. Never heard of Evilfeast before and it looks like all the albums are worthy of being on this list, or is there a specific album you have in mind?

Edit: I added the debut since that one is rated highest on MS. I listened to the whole album and it's definitely my kind of music. Great stuff.

Check out Liberteer.


I checked it out but it's way too chaotic for me. Can't enjoy it at all so I won't add it, sorry. If you have more suggestions, let me know.

attention grabber

FYI. When you quote more than one person in a post, only the first person actually gets a Notification. If you want everybody you quote to get a Notification, then you have to individually quote everybody in separate posts.

Ah, so that explains it then I guess. Well, obviously I want someone to see what I typed when I quoted that person. I don't want to have a ridiculous amount of posts on my lists, so that's why I always quote multiple people in the same message. Quite annoying only the first person gets a notification.

Yes, it was. Glad DarkSymphony pointed this out to me because I didn't know either before. The whole album is done by Morten Veland (who else? ), but he did hire a session musician who did the female vocals. Glad it's on this list, since it's the only gothic metal album among lots of doom and especially black metal albums.

hmmm I didn't know either,but I think since there is a vocalist who have been hired to perform the vocals on the album it's not one-man band anymore it could be in this list if even the vocals were performed by Moren as well.

Well, I even had Ayreon on the list before but decided to remove it since he (Arjen) can't really create an album without guest/session musicians. That being said, I don't really have a definite rule for this list other than that the band needs to consist of 1 member. When there is just 1 (or 2) session/guest musician(s) involved, I'd still add them. I might change my mind on this matter, but for now I'll leave it as it is.

Fair enough, It was such big surprise to see Sirenia here

Yeah, I can imagine that, since it's totally different from most of the albums on this list. Oh, and thanks for the thumbs up.

If she was only a guest vocalist then I would still consider it a one-man album because he could've done everything all by himself, but he chose to hire a female vocalist to help accentuate the album a bit; he did not NEED her assistance with writing and recording the album.
psykometal - 15.09.2013 at 23:34  
Depending on your taste for Industrial Rock/Metal, you might also check out Celldweller's debut.

Yep, exactly what I think as well.

Okay, I'll check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
Fritillaria - 16.09.2013 at 07:50  
I'm gonna check out Celldweller too,surprisingly I become more interested in industrial genre recently
Zaphod - 17.09.2013 at 00:55  
Haha, I wanted to suggest Lascaille's Shroud, but I thought everyone but me thought it was pretty meh. Seems I was wrong.

Same here. Hell, I've been so unfamiliar with industrial metal I didn't even know what it was a year ago or so. So far my favourite Industrial (black) metal album is The Work Which Transforms God, a really popular album here, especially with elites and staff. If you haven't checked it out, then do so quickly, it's awesome!

Psykometal beat you to it, haha. I think overall it was good (if not great), but sometimes I felt like "what the hell am I listening to?". A massive album like that can't be judged after just 1 spin it seems, or at least not in my case.
Apothecary - 17.09.2013 at 01:06  
I was just about to suggest Funerals From The Astral Sphere but I see you've already got it. I'd say this list is pretty definitive, I've been thinking of bands to add to it for you but you've pretty much already got all that I can think of. Good job man!

Haha, Midnight Odyssey was actually one of the bands (along with Aquilus of course, but also Ancient Wisdom, Forest of Shadows and a couple of others) that got me to the idea of making this list. I'm pretty happy with the list of how it is now, but that doesn't mean I'll stop adding albums. Unlike my debut albums list however, there are (luckily for me) far less potential albums. Despite the fact that the debut albums list is 300 albums long, there are still a shitload of suggestion from people that commented that I need to check out. Ah well, I'm not in a hurry, but I just need +1 more and it'll be on the first page of the MS lists (not that I only care about thumbs ups, but it's still nice to get recognition for the "work" you did).
Dima - 17.09.2013 at 14:10  
Someone mentioned Aquilus in the shoutbox. Gave them a whirl. Absolutely beautiful. It'll be very hard for anything on this list to beat it. And it appears its your favourite too since its the artwork that you've used for the list.

(Completely irrelevant to this list, and despite them being very different bands, do i enjoy this more than Locus Horrendus? I'm not sure. It's tough :p .)
