A PBR 12 Pack Of Popular Hipster Black Metal.

Orthodoxy is for morons who cannot compose or create themselves and need to copy the blueprint of someone else. Daring to be different might make your music stand apart. Daring to be different and standing apart might draw more people to your music. Daring to be different might make you more popular - and thus more hipster. So grow some facial hair, put on an ironic shirt, grab a PBR, and listen up.

1. Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit
2. Alcest - Écailles de lune
3. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - Sect(s)
4. Darkspace - III
5. Darkthrone - Circle The Wagons

Post-stonersludge Fun

the "genres" of stoner metal, sludge, and post-metal all seem to bleed/flow together at various times so playing metal bartender, i've cooked up this list of albums those interested in the genres can use as suggestions/starting points. this is just a basic primer with 25 albums... not a definitive list by any stretch. just albums i love. some are landmark releases that helped define the genre... while others are recent releases from cool bands that MS/labels have helped me uncover. Enjoy.

1. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
2. Baroness - Blue Record
3. Down - NOLA
4. High On Fire - Death Is This Communion
5. Kyuss - Blues For The Red Sun

Fie, i say, FIE!
