Mind Manifesting: Apothecary's Guide To Psychedelic Soundscapes

I've always been a huge fan for psychedelic music of any and all kinds. The enveloping atmosphere, the ability of minimalist solos to create a grand sense of harmony, and all those deliciously trippy effects that you can zone out with... they all come together for such a stimulating, otherworldly experience. This is often the type of music I'm most comfortable with: dazing, mind numbing, and hypnotizing.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Æthenor - En Form for Blå
3. Angst Skvadron - Sweet Poison
4. Atomikylä - Erkale
5. Bong - Stoner Rock

The Best Of Unorthodox Black Metal

Within the past decade, black metal has seen bands from all over the world incorporating new sounds to the style and changing its delivery like never before. As great as the classic acts are, BM bands today seem to be branching out in every possible direction. From the beautiful chaos of the French bands to the psychedelic dabblings of the Finns to the atmospheric scene out West in the U.S... all the experimentation is helping to create a new identity for the genre. So, in no particular order, here are some of the best releases from this growing trend of originality within black metal's foundations (atmospheric, psychedelic, black doom, and otherwise).

1. Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
2. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - The Desanctification
3. Diapsiquir - Virus STN
4. Glorior Belli - The Great Southern Darkness
5. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini

2008: The Amphibian Halo (as In 'my Blurry View Of 2008')

Updated version of the list previously published here. You'll notice that the comments are a bit different for sure, as is the order:
1 to 3: best of the year (in preference order)
4 to 25: other great stuff (alphabetical order)

And then there were some average (sometimes bad, sometimes good) albums that didn't make it in this list, but they featured some of the most awesome songs of the year. Like Voices Of The Fallen by Battlelore, Dylath-Leen's Frozen Reflect On A Broken Mirror, and particularly Iced Earth's Come What May...

1. Textures - Silhouettes
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Burst - Lazarus Bird
4. ADX - Division Blindée
5. Cynic - Traced In Air

Booooobs

They are on covers of every Metal genre and staged in all ways one can think of: Boobs! Noticing that there are are a few covers with this part of the female body (NO man boobs - NO Manowar) on it, I had the idea to make a list with those CDs. At the beginning, there were only 25 albums on it -which is not very much-, but with looking out for boobs on Metal covers, it became longer and longer. And now, it is a list with 203 albums and suggestions are always welcome!

1. Abaddon Incarnate - The Last Supper
2. Abrasive - Awakening of Lust
3. Abrasive - The Birth...Born In Sodom
4. Acheron - Rebirth: Metamorphosing Into Godhood
5. Acrimonious - Sunyata
