I'll be introducing some albums people can possibly relate to, either because of the music, or the lyrics that people find more personal than others. Also included are my personal favorites.

Created by: Monolithic | 17.01.2013



1. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
"If we were alone on this earth,or even away from here, it would be easy to let myself go, and God knows I want to."
2. Abandon - The Dead End
Heed my warning: do not proceed further, for you soul can be tainted by the beauties of the dark side.
3. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
Sick, twisted images repeated in my mind. A must-listen for Sludge fans.
4. Antimatter - Fear of a Unique Identity
I don't find it too difficult to have something in common with this album.
5. Agalloch - The Mantle
The winter is meaningless without some Agalloch.
6. Atoma - Skylight
I'm not amazed as much as my enthusiastic compatriots, but there's no argument in labeling this album "A Journey to the unknown.", slightly overrated. But a solid effort nonetheless.
7. Before The Dawn - Deathstar Rising
Probably the last BTD album I really enjoyed.
8. Collapse Under The Empire - Find A Place To Be Safe
imagine being lost in a dream that has no specific climaxes at all, relying on texture instead to keep you puzzled and intoxicated.
9. Crib45 - Metamorphosis
Perfect for the people with inner struggles.
10. Cult of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
Deals with the subject of solitude. Not your typical my-beloved-is-gone-and-I-die-in-the-forest type of doom metal album.
11. Dan Gibson's Solitudes - Sleep Deeply
Perfect for sleeping.
12. Devin Townsend - Ki
If you happen to be so bored with having inner struggles after listening to the previous album, you may find sobriety and peace.
13. Enshine - Origin
emmm...no reason whatsoever.
14. Entombed - Left Hand Path
My death metal pick for this list.
15. Epic45 - Weathering
Imagine a gloomy landscape, taken away from you while you're blinded by the haze.
16. Fabrizio Paterlini - Autumn Stories
Weeks of melancholy.
17. Fallen - A Tragedy's Bitter End
A must-have for any Funeral Doom metal fan.
18. Fields of The Nephilim - Elizium
"Tell me what dreams may come?"
19. Fen - Dustwalker
Just listened to it this morning. Sounds a lot promising to be added to my collection.
20. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
Probably the most personal album I've ever heard. Melancholic and sad at some point, but it's not however,bleak or devoid of hope.
21. Green Carnation - The Acoustic Verses
I'm not running away, I'm just searching...for the real me.
22. Ikuinen Kaamos - Fall of Icons
It actually came to me at a terrible time when I was suffering from anxiety issues and it drove me further into insanity, but I had good memories nonetheless.
23. In The Silence - A Fair Dream Gone Mad
Ignore the huge buzz, and also the harsh criticism directed at it. They deserve it, hands down.
24. Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny
My personal favorite.
25. Junius - Reports from the Threshold of Death
A daring effort from one of Boston's finest bands. Dealing with the subject of death, spirituality and a journey into the limbo.
26. Mono - For My Parents
The last post-rock album I really enjoyed since I stopped listening to post-rock.
27. Primordial - Redemption at the Puritan's Hand
I never understood why I'm putting this album here. But for Nemtheanga's sake, it was a "faith and failure" tale executed perfectly.
28. Rapture - Futile
Murky death/doom.
29. Skepticism - Stormcrowfleet
Massive.
30. Slumber - Fallout
A masterpiece in any imaginable way. Atmospheric and melancholic.
31. Stomach Earth - Stomach Earth
Crushing, massive death/doom material. Funny how Mike Mckenzie, a tech-death metaller, has a way with slow-paced doom music.
32. Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn
EPIC, as in, masterpiece. It's gonna be a serious contender for Album of the Year Awards.
33. Sylvan - Sceneries
Glimmering prog rock.
34. The Alan Parson's Project - Eye In The Sky
Sorry Pink Floyd, I'd prefer AP over you.
35. The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand
I'm merely speechless.
36. The Cure - Disintegration
Yeah I know it's a sin to add them here.
37. Ulver - Teachings in Silence
A weird and bizarre album with a depressive tinge to it.
38. Undersmile - Narwhal
female-fronted sludge/drone/doom insanity.
39. Vàli - Skogslandskap
Nocturnally acoustic.
40. Vertigo Steps - The Melancholy Hour
The name says it all.
41. Warning - Watching From A Distance
"In the darkness I unravel."
42. Wolverine - Communication Lost
Suddenly you feel unattached from the society once you realize how futile your obsessions and habits are.

Admirable list, I agree with you on most of the items here.
I just didn't listen to the number 8 yet.

Yeah, I've listened to Epoch and I like it, but I think it was nothing special.
Maybe I should give it more time.

Love the list, a lot of not well-known stuff. I especially love the Junius selection, well done.

I'm sure you were even more happy when you saw Fen. Thanks for dropping by.

Good list bro

Thanks a lot man.

Great list, nearly all these albums make me dream, think and of course relate in my own mind.

And to think I was called "depressed" for loving these. thanks for dropping by!

Nice idea for a list. Thumbs up for Atoma, 40 Watt Sun, Summoning, Enshine, Slumber and Agalloch. For Fen I would easily choose The Malediction Fields as their best and for Green Carnation I'd choose Light of Day, Day of Darkness.

Thanks a lot man. Yeah I think the list still needs to be updated too. Although it's more of a "personal albums" list, I totally agree on both albums, as both albums are totally difficult to top as well.

Wow this list has grown since the last time I'd seen it , you should self-advertise it more. you already know which of these I'm in love with <3

More like mutated tbh. Thanks.

Definitely partner, especially when I got my hands on that Doommantia Vol.2 compilation. It's like every song shows how much each band has the potential to be added.

Warning's masterpiece is perfectly captured by the opening lyrics to Bridges: "In the darkness I unravel" please change it to that

How the hell did I miss this list for so long?

That sounds wonderful and fitting for a description. done.

Oh well, I used to self-promote them a long time ago but it kind of died down.
