(please note: the comment box down below is closed!)

As the year and the decennium is coming to an end (and no, we are not getting into the discussion if the decennium includes 2010 as well) we at Roadburn HQ thought it would be a nice idea to let our readers, visitors, friends, acquaintances and people who just passed by accidentally put together a Roadburn Top 10 of the Decade, replete with stoner, doom, drone, heavy ‘70s, psychedelica, post rock and spacerock delights.

How does this work? Please put your top 10 of Roadburn-related albums in the comments and we’ll do the math just before Christmas. Your last chance to send in your lists will be Thursday, December 24th, and we’ll announce the definite list between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Starting off with our own lists:

Neurosis - Given To The Rising

Neurosis - Given To The Rising

Jurgen – Roadburn

NeurosisGiven to the Rising (2LP)
For me their return to form after my 90s favourites Enemy of the Sun and Through Silver in Blood.
Wolves in the Throne RoomTwo Hunters (2LP)
Dark, warm and textured, black metal does not get any better than this for me. Is it true BM? Who cares!

Sunn o)))Black One (2LP)
After a few Whites, Black One got to me more with it’s more diverse mixture of black, ambient and drones. Maybe Monoliths and Dimensions will top this one in time but for now this is the one that made feedback a proper artform.
Serena ManeeshSerena Maneesh (2LP)
At the time My Bloody Valentine was a thing of the past but these Norwegians were the closest thing to pre-Loveless MBV you could get.
Electric WizardWitchcult Today (2LP)
Most bands deliver their best goods at the beginning of their career but for me WT is just as good or even better than Come my Fanatics or Dopethrone. The resurrection of the Wizard!
High on FireDeath is his communion (LP)
HoF are true descendants of Motorhead and this album is where they show it best. Agression coupled with melody makes a mean potion in the hands of Matt Pike and co.
VariousJohn Barleycorn Reborn (2CD)
The odd one out in this list. JBR compiles dark and somethimes heavy psychedelic UK folk songs made by mostly unknown contemporary bands.
DownOver The Under (2LP)
They know their craft and they do it well. Nuff said.
Jesu Jesu 2LP
Envision shoegaze and dark pounding psychedelica meeting on the dissection table. Leave it to Justin Broadrick to find another niche of his own.
The Angelic ProcessWeighing Souls With Sand (2LP)
Where My Bloody Valentine and Neurosis finally meet. Haunting and mesmerizing music, with a sad story behind it to boot.

A Silver Mt. Zion - Horses in the Sky

Leslie – Roadburn

A Silver Mt. ZionHorses in the Sky
Difficult to choose just one by this thankfully prolific bunch. They kicked off the decade with what is now an eerily prescient declaration, “Let’s kill first the bankers, with their professional demeanor” and then went on to write the liner notes to the entire decade.
The Mountain GoatsThe Sunset Tree
Feel-good hit of the decade refrain: “I am gonna make it through this year, if it kills me!”
RasputinaOh Perilous World
I dream of the day that Melora C. manages to drag her cello over to these shores.
Celtic FrostMonotheist
Too scary to play at home. Actually, the gig in San Francisco was a strong contender for best of the decade, except the overall vibe of the night left me pining for Dutch audiences. Social encounters included a teen Goatwhore groupie in Sarah Palin glasses droning about how “killer” they are, and a guy with eroded teeth pestering me for my email so we could “make mad bux sellin’ old punk flyers an’ shit in like Holland, and Germany, man, Germany” backed by the claim he had hung out at the Verbal Abuse house in the old days. I declined the offer.
Motorpsycho - Little Lucid Moments
The more than a decade-long affair was withering on the vine in 2004 and by 2006 the thrill was officially gone. “It’s not you, it’s me.” Then suddenly in 2008 it was time to dust off the old psychonaut suit and enjoy
the return of the sparks.
CocoRosie Noah’s Ark
Light the candles, fill the tub with bubbles and trip away.
LowThe Great Destroyer
The VPRO documentary on the band was deeply disturbing and added an extra dimension to the already uneasy listening Low provides.
Marissa NadlerSongs III: Bird on the Water
As my friend said after seeing her in concert, “I wanted to take her home and build her a little dandelion-filled graveyard out back to haunt.”
DoMakeSayThink - Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn
Tis the season to break this one out again. It’s like icicles and hot cocoa all in one. I can’t think of any other record that alternates between sparkling chills and comforting warmth with similar grace and charm.
FirewaterThe Golden Hour
The soundtrack to the only blog I followed from start to finish during this decade. Observations by Tod A. include “most of Calcutta ain’t much worse than the Lower East Side on any given Sunday morning following a
Lower East Side Saturday night. You would just have to add a few cows to the picture.”

Bonus
Best gig of the decade: Neil Young, Antwerp’s Stadsschouwburg, 11 February 2008. There he was, all by himself on stage in that big theatre during the acoustic half of the gig, singing “Ambulance Blues.” Beautiful.

    I know, I know. A lot of the same bands but those are legendary for a reason.

    Best ‘roadburnisch’ albums of 2009 (next to greymachine)Dälek – guttertactics, OM – god is good, Sólfastir – Köld, maudlin of the well – Part the second, Natural snowbuildings – Shadow kingdom, YOB – The great cessation.

  6. Hasjiesh says:

    3. Wolves in the Throne Room – Two Hunters

    Electric Wizard – Dopethrone
    Mastodon – Leviathan
    Motorpsycho – Little Luicid Moments
    Isis – Panopticon

  8. dpdd says:

    1. Monkey3 – 39 laps
    2. 35007 – Liquid
    3. Grails – Burning Off Impurities
    4. Nadja – Touched
    5. 5ive – Hesperus

    7. Earth – The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull
    8. Motorpsycho & Jaga Jazzist Horns – In the Fishtank 10
    9. Byla – Byla

    This is really hard. This is the first list I can think off, and it looks as if my taste limits itself mostly to the Roadburn-ish. This isn’t exactly true, but this decennia is a difficult time for music. No real developments have taken place. Only small ones which build on top of, or extend pop-culture from history. And these times I do listen to mostly psychedelic stuff.

  9. jburnout says:

    1 Colour Haze: Self Titled (Basically in a tie with ‘All’, but the rules say one album per band and Self Titled wins the coin toss)

    2 Howlin’ Rain: Magnificent Fiend

    3 Yob: Illusion of Motion (Tempted to go with the awesome Great Cessation rather than risk splitting the Yob vote, but I have to be honest as day that I think Illusion is a tiny bit better.)

    4 Farflung: Wound in Eternity

    5 Solace: Further (Thought about putting A.D. down just in case they sneak it out this month…)

    6 Ufomammut: Snailking

    7 Electric Wizard: Witchcult Today

    8 Roadsaw: See you in Hell

    9 Dead Man: Euphoria

    10 Mammatus: Self Titled

    Damn we love lists! ;-) Thanks for all the contributions so far!
    And we’re afraid that Kyuss, Sleep, Swans, though great bands with great albums, will not be counted as – well – they were releases way before the 21st century began.

    Anyway, that’s my Top 11 ! Can’t erase one of them ;) If you asked for a Top 20, Kylesa, Karma To Burn, Meshuggah, Caribou, Yakuza, Earth, OM, Year Of No Light, Maserati… would have entered the list. Next decade maybe !

    TOP 10 [2000-2009]

    1. Celtic Frost – Monotheist LP
    Tom G’s epitaph for Celtic Frost. Spine chilling and grandiose.

    2. Hammers Of Misfortune – The August Engine LP
    Not-so-classic metal with unequalled epic grandeur. Throw high la mano cornuta!

    3. Circle – Tulikoira LP
    So damn freaky it hurts.

    4. High On Fire – Blessed Black Wings LP
    Matt Pike at his grittiest. Title track is this decade’s South of Heaven, hands down.

    5. Hour Of 13 – Hour Of 13 CD (put this out on vinyl, ferchrissakes!)
    They have the tunes, they have the riffs. Classic doom doesn’t get any better than this.

    6. Earth – Hibernaculum LP
    The ideal soundtrack to gloomy Sunday afternoons.

    7. Mastodon – Leviathan LP
    Beats this year’s Crack The Skye by just an inch. Maybe even less.

    8. Blood Ceremony – Blood Ceremony LP
    Satan’s female-fronted lounge band. Succumb to the flute, succumb!

    9. Earthride – Vampire Circus Pic Disc
    Sherm’s crewe. The first 3 tracks form the grooviest triumvirate this side of doom.

    10. Nachtmystium – Assassins: Black Meddle pt. 1 LP
    The saviours of black metal. Not for purists!
