Swans - Soundtracks for the Blind

download part I
download part II

Epic and incredibly original. Occasionally, the experimentation on this record can come across as filler. However, predominantly this album is a work of art with moments of such intensity it borders the religious.
(note: If you are impatient, this record is not for you. You'd be much better off checking out "Swans are Dead" on which many of the songs are reinterpreted in a live format and are more to the point.)

Black Flag - My War


Black Flag slowed down in speed but intensified in frustration and rage. Though not there yet, highly influential to the sludge genre.

Wu-Tang - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)


Wu-Tang clan ain't nothin' to fuck with.

Earth - HEX: Or Printing In The Infernal Method


Desert ambiance and minimalist western style guitar playing.
