Doom Charts 2019 Favorites – John Gist

John Gist is the man behind the hard work going down in Las Vegas Nevada via Vegas Rock Revolution. He’s putting his heart and soul into promoting the heavy underground in Sin City and has sent in his old school ‘Top 40’. Imagine a world where the actual ‘Top 40’ heard by the masses were a playlist shown below? While these picks aren’t ‘Top 40’ by mainstream standards, they are certainly Doom Charts approved and John can talk to you for days about his experience in and around radio and the struggles that go along with trying to get folks off their couches to come support rock n roll. He’s doing a great job within the hard rock scene and we’re glad to have him on the Doom Charts team.

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