The Doom Chart for October 2017


Doom Chart

    “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
    ~ L. M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)

Autumn has begun, steadily building its strength for the annual reckoning of Summer.  October brings transition, in the color of trees, the chilled weather, a thickening wardrobe.  Samhain has come to shout at the Earth its chilling reminder that now is a good time to let the dead things go and rest.  Despite the tradition of fright, it’s more an ancient hinge for the year.  The season of ghosts is upon us to reap the harvest, to honor the life and the death of all things.

October quiets our focus toward celebrating life and those in it with you.  Of course, music is my favorite method by which to do anything.  Music easily engages the means to convey an idea, channel emotion, and celebrate.  We share music we love with our families and friends, trying to show them that revelry we find in the music.  Every single day, musicians are freely handing their hearts over to outright strangers, inviting them to hold it, hear it, and care for it… or crush it and burn it to ashen dust.  We strangers here are helping them share it, hoping you might like it, love it, or – at a minimum – listen to it.

Compiling newer music we have listened to and loved, we give you a tallied assortment of 25 heavy music options for you to discover here each month on the Doom Charts.  A darkened, dramatically changed harvest this October’s end, as there is much movement on the charts with a whopping SEVENTEEN new albums making their debut appearance!  All these incredible releases to listen to and share with music-hoarding lunatics such as yourselves.  Take some time to clean your music storage cupboard and make room for this Autumn feast.

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…
