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

My Favorite Black And Doom Metal Albums Of 2012!

Its in alphabetical order by albums... Some albums on this list may or may not be the exact description of Black or Doom Metal or their subgenres. They just seem to fit for my taste and way I like my Black And Doom dosage. I'm sure some may say Les Discrets and Alcest and other bands on the list can't be Black or Doom because of their sounds and lyrical themes, but if their music gives me that darkness that let's say Watain or Gorgoroth give in Black Metal just without the Satanic lyrics and more of the emotions of Blackness and Doom then to me its Black Metal and the same goes to whatever Doom bands are on my list. If anyone checks out my list, thanks.

1. Mental Home - Угра
2. Forgotten Tomb - ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil
3. Profetus - ...To Open The Passages In Dusk
4. Narrow House - A Key To Panngrieb
5. A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays

Apothecary's Awesome Album Art Anthology

I know I probably speak for a lot of people when I say that, very often, the artwork that a band chooses for a particular album can be the icing on the cake, essential to giving a visual depiction that tops off the overall aesthetic of the music. There are plenty of albums that I simply couldn't imagine listening to without staring, zoned out, to the big ball of glorious that is their cover art. Here are some such albums. In alphabetical order by band. Links to full images of the covers have been provided, as well as credits to the artists.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Absu - The Sun Of Tiphareth
3. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
4. Bathory - Blood Fire Death
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Fire Of Unknown Origin

Mz's Favorite Black Metal Albums

Hey everyone.
I used to avoid Black Metal for long since I considered BM musicians as "a bunch of monkeys, wearing corpse paints in a dark frost and pretending to hate humanity". Fortunately, some of them have proven to be more than that. My interest in Black Metal is progressively increasing and now I consider it to be one of the most divers metal genres, among with doom metal. Black Metal albums with experimental elements are more likely to appease me. Admittedly, this list shares a lot with my previous lists.These albums are included to indicate my taste in this genre. One album per band, unless the band's album have very different sound .The main aim of this list is to gain recommendations.

1. Aderlating - Spear Of Gold and Seraphim Bone Pt.1
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Agruss - Morok
4. Alkerdeel - Morinde
5. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
