“Let’s cut right to the chase this edition and hand it out to the fine folks behind the scenes listening their asses off in an attempt to either spread the gospel of the heavy underground, satisfy the craving of a real life addiction, bankrupting their households, or just coming together for a communion of a love for doom, stoner, sludge and heavy psychedelics. I think it’s a combination of all the above. Here we present the hot and heavy month of August! A scorching month of new releases and perhaps record month since the debut of the charts for NEW additions to the charts. All but about 6 repeat entries make their debut this month!” ~ Bucky Brown (The Ripple Effect)
Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, radio and podcasters and album reviewers from the doom-stoner underground around the globe. Each month, our critics submit their picks for the best new doom-sludge metal and stoner-psychedelic rock albums. The results are compiled and tabulated into the chart below. This is a one-stop shop for the best new albums in the world…
And then suddenly they’re there again. Even when the summer is in full swing and everything is taking a backseat to everything else, they continue, those unholy Doom Charts. And it’s a cracker once again. With a truckload of new heavy albums and ofcourse the ones that are still on heavy rotation with that grand selection of dingbats who continuously keep spreading the good word on all those majestic bands out there on their very own websites and blogs. For together they formed a band whose names and deeds were to be retold throughout the centuries, the knights of the Doom Chart!
