Oh God... Did You Eat All This Acid? That's Right. Music!

You better pray to God there's some Thorazine in that bag....

A personal list of metal, vaguely metal and metal related albums I consider psychedelic that expand, contort, implode, transcend and numb my mind, in the nicest possible ways. Read that as: I don't care about your definition of psychedelic; my mind goes where it gets carried

1. A Forest Of Stars - The Corpse of Rebirth
2. A Void In Coma - A Primal Obsession With The Cosmos​.​.​.
3. Acid Witch - Witchtanic Hellucinations
4. Aluk Todolo - Occult Rock

A List Of Great Debut Albums

A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once

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 genre and changing its delivery like never before. As great as the classic bands are, BM bands today seem to be branching out in every possible direction. From the beautiful chaos of the French bands, to the developing psychedelic black metal style, and even the Avantgarde craziness of Mories... all the experimentation is helping to create a bold new identity for the genre's sound. Black metal today could very well be the one area of metal where we see the most experimentation taking place, and I hope the albums in this list will illustrate this growing trend.

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. Kawir - Isotheos

The Best Of UK Black Metal

The UK isn't exactly known for its black metal so here's a list of the best we have to offer, proving we have a number of unappreciated gems that can compete with the best there is. Each of these are hand-tested by me and come with a money back guarantee. Each offers something interesting and excellent, not just a bunch of ordinary dross picked for their regional significance! For further reading you could do worse than check out the Metal Archives reviews. Apart from Thus Defiled which has yet to receive any they all garnered positive reviews, some overwhelmingly so (Fen, TAoP, Forefather, Spearhead, Lyrinx). No order.

1. Fen - The Malediction Fields
2. Akercocke - The Goat Of Mendes
3. The Meads Of Asphodel - Murder of Jesus the Jew

SF's Top 20 For 2008

Like my own 2009 top list, it's been extremely hard to narrow down to a final twenty because of so many releases in recent years. But twenty it is and of course, I cheated again with my other two lists of overlooked albums and influential albums. These lists are by no means a definition, but a musical statement and hopefully you reading this list can find out something you haven't heard of before and enjoy it as much as I do. Yes, some big names are missing, some are too obscure while some are too mainstream, but I listen to what I like. Just be sure to give them a go with youtube and internet downloads readily at your disposal ^ ^ Some that didn't quite make it into the list but would want to mention them anyway as they are awesome nonetheless: Bison B.C., E-Force, Hail Of Bullets, Keldian, Draconian, Deadlock, Shadowkeep, Battlelore etc

1. Oceans Of Sadness - The Arrogance Of Ignorance
2. Textures - Silhouettes
3. UnSun - The End Of Life
4. SepticFlesh - Communion
5. Poisonblack - A Dead Heavy Day
