DOOM CHARTS MID YEAR BREAKDOWN – 2015

You are about to experience one of the strangest meetings ever convened — a joining of […] the most unusual people on Earth! Sit quietly in the shadows of this clandestine conference and observe it well! For from it shall soon be born … The DOOM PATROL (Arnold Drake)

Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, radio and podcasters and album reviewers from the doom-stoner underground around the globe. Each month, our critics submit their picks for the best new doom-sludge metal and stoner-psychedelic rock albums.

Featured below are the top 50 albums  of the first half of 2015 based off the doom chart standings through July. Keep your eyes and ears out for what’s still to come. As ‘BTO’ says, “B b b b baby, you just ain’t seen n n n n nothing yet!”
