Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, journalists, radio and podcasters, 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. The results are compiled and tabulated into the chart below. This is a one-stop shop for the best new albums in the world.
Bands, labels & PR reps:
Please send album submissions via this page or better yet to the individual blogs & websites. For the Doom Charts do not review themselves, they just blurb about the ones that make the list that month…
