Post-stonersludge Fun

the "genres" of stoner metal, sludge, and post-metal all seem to bleed/flow together at various times so playing metal bartender, i've cooked up this list of albums those interested in the genres can use as suggestions/starting points. this is just a basic primer with 25 albums... not a definitive list by any stretch. just albums i love. some are landmark releases that helped define the genre... while others are recent releases from cool bands that MS/labels have helped me uncover. Enjoy.

(not in any specific order!)

The Ancient One
I love people bringing up what i "missed" on a set-limit list that reflects my taste.

just because Electric Wizard or QOTSA aren't on my list doesn't mean i don't like them. i figure it better to have a smattering of popular with shit i like that folks might have missed.

and i dislike extended lists as it is often too much to process. i kept this and the Doom one to 25 for a reason.
get the fuck off my lawn.
