The Doom Chart for September 2020

Doom Charts

“Pain shared, my brother, is pain not doubled, but halved.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Yet another month has passed of living in a world that in many ways seems little better than a half a year ago. It’d be easy to list the ways in which the world is suffering, but the fact remains people aren’t so easily beaten, and music is one of our most powerful weapons. As evidenced by this month’s list of one top tier album after another, musicians are as imaginative and persistent as ever, and we as a community are beyond fortunate for it. We share new albums, forward golden oldies, and wait for the next record label signing together while enjoying the heavy sounds that we can’t get enough of. Even concerts, a seemingly long lost gathering place, are coming back in the form of live streams and drive ins, refusing to disappear. It’s a testament to the dedication of this community to each other and to the music we love, and despite our gloomy tastes the underground is anything but doomed! ~ Shasta Beast

Damn right Shasta Beast, well said! The Doom Charts are once again navigating the ocean of heaviness! The September edition is here to take you safely to the shores of all those good riffs and majestic rhythms! Feast your ears on those that made the final 30 of the 300 albums voted for... A few of my personal votes were for Laser Dracul, Psychlona, CRYSTAL SPIDERS, IAH, Scorched Oak, Turtle Skull, Kitchen Witch, Slomosa, The Kings Of Frog Island and one or two more... Dang, never had that many choices make the final list… I think... Over 300 albums were voted for… Can you imagine? Don’t know which of my Doom Charts compadres voted for Thunderspoon, but thanks to him or her I found out about this classic, seventies, psych, stoner rock album called Boogie Goat. And there are so many more to discover! But first up we go through those 30 that made the final list; next up Cyberfunk! by Mother’s Cake! Truck on!
