The Doom Chart for November 2017


Doom Chart
“God’s creatures who cried themselves to sleep stirred to cry again.”
~ Thomas Harris, The Silence of the Lambs

As November turns into December and the weather worsens by the minute. Judging from the mushrooms popping up everywhere, this could turn wetter and colder very fast. (On the North European side of the globe, that is) We already look forward to the end of the year. Not because we desperately want to blow stuff up with fireworks. Although we do. And not just because we want to drink copious amounts of Champagne and other assorted alcoholic beverages. Although we do. But becaue it is just that. The end of the year. Approaching ever faster. And with it comes those nasty little things called End Of Year Lists. They do them for everything. But the music lists still holds something special. And just like those mushrooms those End Of Year Lists are popping up everywhere as well. The freaks who can be counted on for the Doom Charts for instance all do something with them. Just visit their individual websites and blogs listed below. And ofcourse we pay hommage to the one hosted by the honorable JJ Koczan on The Obelisk. I like’m. Those lists. Not because it necessarily grades all of my favorite albums. But because you it grands you the opportunity again to revisit all those amazing albums of the past year. And you can be sure that the Doom Charts will also do an unholy counting of the numbers. Adding all those lists of the past year up to one final tally…
But now, we give you the November edition of the Doom Charts. A tallied assortment of twenty-five heavy rock albums that bring something special to the table. ELEVEN new albums entered the list and all of them deserve to be listened to on repeat. So. Enough chit chat. Check’m out! Check’m all out!
