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
5. Arizmenda - Within The Vacuum Of Infinity...

Iron Recommends: A Metal Selection

Yep, one of those lists. Everyone has one, so I thought I'd make a list of metal albums I really recommend.

This is not an absolute "best-of" list, for a few reasons:
1) I stick to one album per band, unless there's been a drastic style shift (like Katatonia's).
2) I try to cover all major subgenres fairly, so I have something for everyone. It counterbalances the tendency to list all the cool bands in a style I'm into right now (like drone or epic doom).

1. Warning - Watching From a Distance
2. Candlemass - Nightfall
3. Reverend Bizarre - In The Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend
4. Pagan Altar - The Lords Of Hypocrisy
5. Katatonia - Dance of December Souls

You Wouldn't Know What Good Art Is If It Hit You In The Face

Since we had the whole MS album art awards, I figured I would try and list out my favourites.
This is not in any order and has no relation to the music, there are bands in here that I don't like, but the artwork is still great.
I'm not quite sure of some of the illustrators and designers on some covers, so they have been left blank, if you do know who did them, let me know. If you think there are some artists that I would dig coz of similar work, just leave me a shout.
This list is not finished so I will keep adding covers that I like.
I don't like Derek Riggs work too much so don't ask me why an Iron Maiden cover is not on the list.

1. Baroness - Red Album
2. Baroness - Blue Record
3. Mastodon - Leviathan
4. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
5. Kvelertak - Kvelertak

2011 Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead

If you're like me and can't sit still with just one or two genres, perhaps you'll find some ideas in this list. I kept the variety with genres, but also by including all worthy bands from unknown newcomers all the way up to big names. Basically, everything I liked this year.

Since there are so many genres here, don't get too worked up about specific rating and placement. They're generally in order, but more importantly they're all amazing.

1. Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy - Návaz
2. Fair To Midland - Arrows & Anchors
3. Autumn - Cold Comfort
4. Shadowside - Inner Monster Out
5. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room

Konrad's Definitive Favorite Albums Of 2011

This year was quite interesting as far as releases go. All-in-all, it was a GREAT year for good albums, but not a GOOD year for great albums. Usually, there are about 40 albums fighting vigorously for a spot in my lists. This year, there were ten clear cut favorites and a bunch of better-than-average arm arm wrestling for the rest of the final spots. Although my duties at metalreview.com prevent me from spending too much time around these parts, I was still a vicious lurker and enjoy being a part of this community (albeit somewhat silent). To anyone with similar tastes that may have had a good album or two fall through the cracks, I hope this list or any of my others will be of good use to you.

1. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - The Desanctification
2. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
3. Sorgeldom - ...From Outer Intelligences
4. Lifelover - Sjukdom
5. Mournful Congregation - The Book of Kings
