solar's quirky albums


An ever-growing list of albums/EPs that were just fun to listen to. They had something unique, were experimental/strange and/or had interestingly/efficiently lined up vocals and/or instruments that are too hard to forget easily. Naturally, quite a few of them will be avant-garde, but anything else goes that stand out in their subgenre more than others.

§ One album/EP per band
§ Alphabetical order

Suggestions are welcome and encouraged. If I like the album/EP you share/link, I'll append them to the list.

Note: I've added the genre tags mostly as compatible with that of MS

For me personally, yes. Some could be fun but not so weird, but all in all, albums that really caught my attention

I was going to suggest Netra but then I noticed you had him. For something not metal related, how about Company Flow?

Hm, good. I had in mind of adding non-metal stuff, but then refrained from it. For now, just rock and metal

Edit: ...and stuff already on MS, like Elend
