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).

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 .)


I might've mentioned Aquilus in the shoutbox, although not recently. I used to spam it quite often there, so some users even got annoyed with me doing that. Anyway, you're right, it's easily my favourite album on this list and one of the albums (if not the most important one) that gave me the idea of creating this list. In my opinion it's a masterpiece, but I would still choose Locus Horrendus over this one. The reason being that the last song on Griseus is simply too long and brings the album down for me, but also because Locus Horrendus impresses me more overall.

Anyway, hope the list is of any use to you (and others) despite the fact that Griseus is totally different from most albums on this list (since most of them are black metal).

Someone mentioned it yesterday. Maybe they were introduced to them through you back in the day? I like the last song. Yes it could be a bit shorter but it gives the album a nice conclusion.

And I think I have to agree with you about choosing Locus Horrendus over this

Ah I see. I'm not sure who introduced me to Aquilus, but it was someone in the shoutbox. I indeed spammed it a couple of times after that person, so more people would get to know the band. I also have that album in 3 of my lists, which I hope helps too. Oh, and I like the last song a lot too, but if you ask me the first half of the song is way better and after that it just drags on, with a total of 17 and a half minutes. Cutting off the last 7-9 minutes would've improved it I think. After all, with 1 hour and (almost) 20 minutes, the album is already long enough for its own good (or actually too long). Lastly, thanks for the thumbs up.

I noticed you put Coldworld's Melancholie as I told you! Did you listen to it yet?
Death_95 - 18.09.2013 at 21:15  
I also recommend you listen to Gallobraid's Ashen Eidolon... Incredible debut album by Jake Roger's one man band. Actually it's an EP haha
Very similar to Agalloch.

Of course I listened to it, or else it wouldn't be here. However, some albums here I only checked a couple of songs from to decide whether they are worthy of the list or not, but I fully listened to most of them.

I really liked it, but as most MS users know about me, I can't really properly judge an album after just 1 spin in most cases. In any case, good you pointed that one out to me. If you have any more suggestions, then let me know and I'll check 'em out.

Actually I had that EP on here from the beginning until just a few days ago. I decided to remove it because I only want full length albums (that are featured on MS) on this list. Gallowbraid indeed is really great and I agree it's similar to Agalloch. I've been following that guy on Facebook and it seems he's releasing his first full length album early 2014, so when that album gets released, I probably would immediately add it to this list (because I don't expect it to be anywhere near bad).

Let me know when the debut is released, and I'll add it to the database as long as it's metal.

I'll be sure to let you know. And I'm pretty sure it's going to be a metal album, seeing as the EP is also metal. Gallowbraid is similar to Agalloch like Caladan Brood is similar to Summoning. At least, that's a fairly good comparison I'd say. Oh, and I added Lascaille's Shroud to another list of mine (not that hard to guess which one I'm talking about I think ), or is Leaving Earth Behind the debut? MA says it's an EP.

I'm pretty sure it's an LP, 45+ mins strikes me as being a bit too long for an EP. I believe in England an album can't be labelled as an EP if it exceeds like 25 mins; and that feels right to me. I've not seen anywhere that indicates specifically it's an EP, outside of MA. Bandcamp allows band's to indicate between album, EP and single, and he has it listed as an album. Granted it may be a goof on his part, but until he indicates somewhere that it's an EP I'm gonna run with album since it's 45 mins long, and I agree with the British on this particular subject.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. And I don't really agree with that to be honest (hehe, so we don't always agree after all ). I mean, Gallowbraid's EP is 31+ minutes, so I would be a hypocrite if I'd agree with that. And the longer the album, the better. Though that is true to an extent of course (for example, the debut of Midnight Odyssey is simply too long, despite it being a great album). Oh, and I already deleted it from my debut albums list of course (which I was referring to).

Good list. Tons of new stuff here for me to check out. I love one man bands and I don't even know where to begin with this one.

Thanks! And well, unlike my most popular list (which will never be finished) this one is pretty much done as it is now. I added genres for each album so you at least have an indication of which albums you should like. I'm not that surprised to hear you don't know most of them, since I also didn't know most of these when I just created the list. So yeah, it's a lot of obscure stuff and I don't mind since on my other lists there's lots of better-known stuff to be found.

Another suggestion: Devin Townsend - Ziltoid, The Omniscient. It is a one-man-album, unlike many of his other albums.

From Wikipedia:
"The album is a solo album, with all music written, mixed, produced and performed by Townsend. All drum tracks were produced with EZdrummer,[8] a software drum machine, using the Drumkit from Hell expansion.[9]"

So you basically have to add it to have something else than black metal on here (not saying that's your fault, there's way more one-man-bm out there than most metal genres)

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually have a list (in Word) with all the suggested albums or albums I found myself for this list (and other lists as well). So I'll just add Devin Townsend to that list.

Oh, and yes you're right about one-man bands and BM. I'm already glad I have one gothic album on here. So the more variety the better, granted I like the music of course.

Consider it added. Finally added 5 albums again so as I promised also your suggestion. That album is a totally weird album by the way, I mean what the hell. Kind of nerdy but also hilarious (and ridiculous), but you would know that of course. Maybe I got it wrong, but at the end of the album, does it turn out a guy at work just all imagined it? I got that idea anyway.

Yes, it sucks that it isn't on Youtube, Bandcamp and Grooveshark, which are the three places I mainly stream my music (aside from the music on my own computer of course).

I didn't like it but since many people seem to like it (you, Mr. Doctor, Joe etc.) I decided to add it anyway as this is a general list and not a representation of my own taste (my top 75 list is the best representation of my taste that is available). If I truly hate something I won't add it of course, but P.H.O.B.O.S. simply didn't (and probably still doesn't) appeal to me for some reason.

Indeed, the album is completely ridiculous, goofy, nerdy, hilarious and awesome. I love it. And yes at the end it turns out to be just a guy daydreaming or something, which makes sense because when I'm daydreaming I think of some weird shit too
By the way, seeing as you reached the end of the album I take it you enjoyed it? Or did it just not bother you?

Haha, glad I got it right then. Pretty damn funny album I'd say and kind of enjoyed it, but I'm not sure whether I'll revisit it or not. It's not often that I'm in the mood for such a totally weird album, but who knows I might just spin it again soon.

I've never seen you talk about BDM before, so just as a joke I was going to post some BDM bands, but then I noticed you do actually have Shaun LaCanne's Putrid Pile. So now you need to check out Shawn Whitaker's Insidious Decrepancy, and Peter Hasselbrack's Bloodsoaked.

Ah, so that how you immediately link to the band page, didn't know that. And you're right, I never talk about BDM at all since besides Nile I don't care for it at all, not my cup of tea. But I'm all for variety so having gothic (just Sirenia though), progressive and death metal (etc.) albums on this list increases the variety seeing as the vast majority on here is BM.

Thanks for the suggestions, but can you tell me which albums of those bands I need to add here, as I don't plan on checking 'em all out. Usually I just go for the highest rated album though.

But I'm all for variety so having gothic (just Sirenia though), progressive and death metal (etc.) albums on this list increases the variety seeing as the vast majority on here is BM.

Thanks for the suggestions, but can you tell me which albums of those bands I need to add here, as I don't plan on checking 'em all out. Usually I just go for the highest rated album though.

Can't believe it took you this long to figure that out.

Honestly the only albums of theirs I'm really familiar with are their newest ones. Ran out of BDM steam before I got around to familiarizing their entire discogs.

Hey now, I never even bothered trying to figure it out. Although figuring out how to put Youtube links here on MS took me a few minutes as that was quite tricky.

Their newest albums are the ones I'll add then, on the next update. Already guessed those are the "best" for this list.

You might also try Jordan Varela's Symphony in Acrimony. Symphonic Death metal.

Have been listening to Netra's Melancolie Urbaine album a lot recently. Really interesting mix of black metal and trip-hop. Definitely worth a mention for this list.

France, you motherfucker! You did it again!
I mean... I already hear traces of trip-hop in tracks like this one. But the influence is definitely stronger here.

Thanks for the suggestion (and +1). Not familiar with that kind of style at all, so I can't promise anything, although this list is a general one as I said, so I'll probably add it even if it isn't entirely to my liking.

It's nothing outrageous style wise. The styles mix very well together.

#Attention

I see you have Midnight Odyssey on here. Not sure if you are aware of Dis Pater's other two projects, which he recently cancelled, but check out Tempestuous Fall and The Crevices Below if you have not. They are both on MS now as well, so you can add them to this list of MS exclusives. And they each only have a single release, so not a whole lot of effort to look into and check out.

Thanks for the suggestions once again. They will be checked out and added in due time.

Well, on some of the album the guys don't do "everything". Like on the Sirenia (some vocals obviously) or the Windir (drums) but rather use session/guests... don't know if that counts as "one man"
You might want to check Wigrid. German one man DBM, very good stuff.


On a side note, seriously diggin' that Netra album posted by Joe... really bizarre, you feel the urban decay lingering all through it.... Reminded me of a less black/more experimental version of Lifelover. Trip-hop definitely goes well with metal me thinks, needs moarz !

You're right. It's sort of my own definition of one-man band albums. The only thing that's really important is that there can't be more than 1 band member for these albums. When there's one or a few guest/session musicians, I can ignore that as the sole band member pretty much figured out everything himself, so he simply uses the other musicians to accomplish his goal. You can disagree with this, but I feel that it's not a very big deal. If I'd only include "real" one-man bands here then I'd have to remove a lot of these albums, which would mean getting rid of really great albums. As of now I don't feel like doing so. But if enough people disagree then I might just do that.

Ashamed to say that I still haven't checked out Joe's suggestion, but I definitely will check it out soon. Oh, and I'll check out Wigrid then. I'll let you know when I added the albums.

Just thought I'd come back to this list and recommend Zemial for you. Good Greek project, kinda like blackened thrash, but with a progressive atmosphere that makes things really epic and interesting too. Definitely worth checking out

Thanks for the recommendation. Will check it out soon and add it if I like it. In any case, it seems like really interesting stuff, seeing the way you describe it.

I already added them before, but deleted them because I wanted to add another album. I think it was Edge of Sanity - Crimson II. I totally forgot about that album being a one-man band album so then immediately added it. I only add 5 albums at a time, so expect Alrakis to be added on the next update.
Erik M. - 03.12.2013 at 23:49  
Okay, relatively big update this time, as I have ranked the albums according to genre, just like I did with my debut album list last weekend. Of course lots of black metal in here, but that is even obvious without this ranking. If you have any suggestions (preferably NOT black metal, as there's plenty of it already) then let me know.

You can try these if you want: 0N0, Igric
Two very good one man bands from Slovakia. Second one is black metal though.

What's the difference between avant-garde and experimental?
I've seen Botanist labeled as avant-garde, also have seen Gnaw their Tongues as experimental =P
