Over on my favorite forum for rambling about metal, The History of Metal (it’s an open Facebook forum, so anyone, meaning you, can join and flap your jaw about metal with a wide variety of metalheads from all over the world), the admin made a challenge to all the members to create their top 100 albums of all time. Loving making lists I’m all on this. Between the ~1500 albums I have there is a lot to filter through and this has turned into quite a daunting, yet fun, challenge. This list will represent where I am with my favorite albums right now, if I were to do this last year or next year, while being similar, I’m sure there would be lots of differences. My only self-imposed limitation on this is I’m confining each band 3 albums in the list to avoid entire, very large, discographies over saturating it. Every 5 days or so I’ll make a post with the next 5 entries into the list. Fellow bloggers, I extend this challenge to you (and be sure to let me know where and when you’ll be posting it, I’d love to read it), and for readers without a blog join up with THOM and post yours there! Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
#95 Deloused in the Comatorium – The Mars Volta
I don’t even really know how to begin explaining this album (as with any Mars Volta album). It’s eclectic, all over the place, cryptic, heavy, mellow, emotional, chilling, beautiful, and many many more superlatives. While it shows some homage to old school prog rock at times it is a totally unique listen and The Mars Volta are a band without comparison. Deloused… is just the start to this bands wildly progressive career.
