A Listmania! list by P. Turton "iannisx" (uk)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Khanate
1.  Khanate by Khanate
The list author says:
  "Traditional Doom metal meets the more avant garde sound of Swans. James Plotkin/Stephen O'Malley and co."
Used & New from: £31.98

Filth/Body to Body Job to Job [Jewel Case]
2.  Filth/Body to Body Job to Job [Jewel Case] by Swans
The list author says:
  "The originators. Like wading through tar. Not just slowed-down standard Metal riffs like so much Doom - but genuinely nasty, almost avant classical atonal chords."
£19.99   Used & New from: £9.97
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Cop/Young God/Greed/Holy Money
3.  Cop/Young God/Greed/Holy Money by Swans
The list author says:
  "Even slower, heavier - if possible. 'Cop' is maybe the bleakest record ever made - makes all 'Goth' music sound quaintly redundant."
£72.68   Used & New from: £11.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Streetcleaner
4.  Streetcleaner by Godflesh
The list author says:
  "Justin Broadrick's masterpiece - suffocatingly oppressive bass malevolence. Atonal, angular riffs recall early Swans - although later albums were more traditionally Metal."
£11.90   Used & New from: £3.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Anatomy of Addiction
5.  Anatomy of Addiction by God
The list author says:
  "Godflesh + free jazz from Broadrick's Techno Animal partner Kevin Martin. Line-up of almost orchestral proportions resulting in dense, chaotic sound."
£29.99

Le Morts Vont Vite
6.  Le Morts Vont Vite by Shub-Niggurath
The list author says:
  "Oppressively slow/gloomy art rock moving on from Magma/Univers Zero into 80's noise rock territory. Heavy Zeuhl bass, dissonant organ tone clusters, free jazz piano solos, feedback scree...."
Out of stock
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Times Of Grace
7.  Times Of Grace by Neurosis
The list author says:
  "Gloom-soaked art-metal masters. See also Cult of Luna, Isis, Jesu, Pelican and the many others that followed in their wake."
£11.61   Used & New from: £5.04
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Total Castration
8.  Total Castration by Zeni Geva
The list author says:
  "KK Null's psych/sludge/industrial band. Very like early Swans. Part of early 90's noise rock/no wave revival scene - including Cop Shoot Cop, Unsane, Godflesh....."
Used & New from: £27.95
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Things to come...
9.  Things to come... by Yeti
The list author says:
  "Magma meets Neurosis? Combines bass intensity of 70's Zeuhl with post-Swans sensibilities. Second album (on Life is Abuse) even better, but unfortunately not available on Amazon."
Used & New from: £20.63

See buying options
Tarantula Hawk
10.  Tarantula Hawk by Tarantula Hawk
The list author says:
  "Close to the above, but maybe dronier/more space rock-ish. On Neurot. Dense layers of guitars and keyboards - nice to see synths foregrounded in mix - create art rock/sludge hybrid."
Used & New from: £5.09

See buying options
00 Void
11.  00 Void by Sunn 0)))
The list author says:
  "Doom bordering on more experimental Dark Ambient/Noise territory."
Used & New from: £6.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

See buying options
Body Of Light
12.  Body Of Light by Halo
The list author says:
  "Recent Swans revivalists - decent enough, but start with the real thing."
£11.13   Used & New from: £0.33

Men
13.  Men by Burmese
The list author says:
  "As above."
£13.79   Used & New from: £2.13

Information Overload Unit
14.  Information Overload Unit by SPK
The list author says:
  "Industrial death marches full of churning static and piercing feedback. Makes Throbbing Gristle sound like purveyors of upbeat trance anthems."
Used & New from: £27.46
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

See buying options
Nova Acropola
15.  Nova Acropola by Laibach
The list author says:
  "Their best - none of the ironic/postmodern pop of later releases, this combines avant classical samples and distorted vocals with ominously slow mechanistic beats."
£8.01   Used & New from: £6.72
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Paradise Disowned
16.  Paradise Disowned by Eric Serra
The list author says:
  "Early 'Dark Ambient' looking back to 60's electronic droners like Pauline Oliveros"
Used & New from: £19.80
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

See buying options
Innerwar
17.  Innerwar by Brighter Death Now
The list author says:
  "OK, CMI stuff can get a bit cartoonish in its schlock horror approach - but this is one of the better acts on the label. Like Merzbow on downers."
£35.39   Used & New from: £8.41

Collossus
18.  Collossus by Scorn
The list author says:
  "The best of early noise rock-period Scorn. One of the best attempts to revive the early Swans sound because, like Swans, it focuses on atonal harmonies rather than just slowing down standard riffs."
£30.00   Used & New from: £9.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Schnittke: In Memoriam and Viola Concerto
19.  Schnittke: In Memoriam and Viola Concerto by Nobuko Imai
The list author says:
  "Russian avant classical. Not best recordings of either piece, but the oppressive, funereal gloom of 'In Memoriam' makes a lot of Metal act's attempts at sounding 'dark' seem quaint by comparison."
£14.72   Used & New from: £5.48

Trio Violin/Cl/Piano/Sonata Violin/Piano/Oc
20.  Trio Violin/Cl/Piano/Sonata Violin/Piano/Oc by G. Ustvolskaya
The list author says:
  "More Russian classical - a series of grim, ritualistic funeral marches, with no sign of redemption. Austere."
Used & New from: £39.99

See buying options
Turning It Down Since 2001
21.  Turning It Down Since 2001 by Noxagt
The list author says:
  "Lumbering, neanderthal noise rock - like Burmese, on currently trendy-in-indie-circles Load label."
£13.79   Used & New from: £3.75

Black Earth
22.  Black Earth by Bohren & der Club of Gore
The list author says:
  "Doom jazz."
Used & New from: £4.04
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Amplifier Worship
23.  Amplifier Worship by Boris
The list author says:
  "I don't actually like Boris that much (too much of a traditional Doom sound, not enough Swans dissonance) - but I can't find any of the Japanese band Corrupted so this will have to do....."
Used & New from: £30.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

See buying options
Jesu
24.  Jesu by Jesu
The list author says:
  "Justin Broadrick again - less bleak/gloomy/atonal than Godflesh (or Neurosis for that matter), with more of a melancholic/minor key post rock sound. Mellow Doom?"
Used & New from: £4.62
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Things Viral
25.  Things Viral by Khanate
The list author says:
  "Second Khanate - even slower, even grimmer. You know you love it....."
£33.90   Used & New from: £21.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)
