The Doom Chart for January 2020

Doom Charts

"Why don’t the Grammys matter? Because it feels rigged and cheap – like a popularity contest that the insiders club has decided." ~ Trent Reznor

We probably all heard the news that Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard got snubbed at the annual Grammy Awards. Whoever is in charge of that poor excuse for an awards show needs to get their head in the gutter and start digging through the sludge filled swamps of the underground. I mean, there was no mention of Monolord not a peep about EyeHateGod, and Matt Pike was not even on the red carpet. I’ve had enough of this. All joking aside, there was much discussion behind the scenes about the rock music presence (or lack thereof) at the awards show and how the old time saying, “Rock is Dead” could in fact be true. We here at the Doom Charts are pleased to affirm, its certainly not dead, it’s where you choose to immerse yourself. Doom is not Dead, Sludge is not dead, and heavy psych and stoner are certainly not dead. The January Doom Charts gives us hope that we are going to be in for another stellar year of music in the heavy underground. Check it out below.

Also notice how close the scoring came in with the top 5 picks this month. It’s a traditional doom weak month, but hey those guys just don’t seem to get the material in front of us as well. We’ve also added a monthly playlist up on Spotify with songs from the monthly chart.

Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, journalists, radio, podcasters and album reviewers from the heavy underground around the globe.  Each month, our critics submit their picks for the best new doom, sludge metal, stoner-psychedelic and heavy 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…
