The Doom Chart for October 2020

Doom Charts

    “When I was younger I knew I could do anything – I could be the president if I wanted to, but that was a stupid idea – I’d rather be a rock star...” ~ Kurt Cobain


Kurt Cobain for president? Can we write him in? I’m sure somebody somewhere is thinking the same thing. Maybe being a rock star wasn’t a good idea and had he taken a different path we could be voting him into office right now? Fun to imagine, but we know the reality…

October is one of my favorite months mostly due to the nostalgia surrounding the changing of the colors, shorter days, and the crisp, cool mornings. Lately it’s seemed like no month will top the last in the music realm, yet here we are banging our heads in disbelief on the quality of tunes still coming at us. We’re continually climaxing month to month in terms of relentless exposure to music in the heavy underground.

In typical fashion, nearly 300 different albums voted to chart this month and for the first time in the history of the charts, to my knowledge, besides the very first chart, the entire top 25 albums are NEW meaning no repeats from last month. This is just insane, and that’s not even counting the host of bad ass albums just released on October 30th as our voting closed up for the month.

The all new October Doom Charts are here! Yes, ALL NEW! As Bucky already mentioned; every album on this list wasn’t on it a month prior. Almost 300 albums got voted for and the Top 25 are all brand new! Incredible! Sporting all that good and heavy stuff we all love so dearly! Personal votes went out to Fumarole, Pallbearer, Temple of the Fuzz Witch, Occult Hand Order, Ruff Majik, Horizon, Molassess, Big Scenic Nowhere, Fuzz, NARLA, The Re-Stoned & Sautrus ... Yikes! Quite a lot to make the final list! And there is even more of that good stuff out there! Cause just below the 30 posted are albums like Last Ride by Vessel of Light and Run To The Sky by Falcon Haptics waiting to jump on the list… Perhaps next month they will sire higher? Or perhaps another 25 all new albums will appear? Who knows… But it is all good and all heavy! And we love them all!
