The Doom Chart for August 2017


The Doom Chart for August 2017

“A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet. One of the great revelations of the age of space exploration is the image of the earth finite and lonely, somehow vulnerable, bearing the entire human species through the oceans of space and time.” ~ Carl Sagan

The world as I’ve known it has changed its perspective many times over during my life. People are separate or together, introverts or extroverts, anxious or serene, as well as falling somewhere in between them all. All are individuals, of their own minds and opinions. The only place I’ve ever witnessed a collective consciousness consistently at work is within the crowd at a live heavy music performance.

The attendees and performers of live heavy music events are unlike any other collection of people I’ve been a part of. This is important – not “apart from”, but “a part of.” It’s a community like no other, all individuals with primarily one goal – get the music heard and loved and shared. Attending more heavy music events than I could ever count, I will continue to attend all I can – until ripped from this mortal coil, smiling as I raise my middle finger on one hand and throw horns with the other. Hopeful that happens at the end of a show after the last band, but until then I’ll continue my part to achieve that goal.

Compiling newer music we’ve found, heard, and loved, there is a tallied collection of 25 heavy music options shared every month on the Doom Charts for you discover (or rediscover). A hot, sultry August edition is here to swelter in, as this month there are FOURTEEN new albums in their debut appearance on the charts, with one album revisiting! (A Doom Chart revisit is a rare occurrence for an album that’s been out for a spell, but I think it’s damned cool when it happens.) All these incredible releases to peruse, listen to, and share with other like-minded, individual music-loving maniacs like yourselves. Find your great revelations, People of Earth!

Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, journalists, radio and podcasters, and album reviewers from the doom-stoner-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…
