We haven’t reached yet the end of the year but we can already say that 2018 was definitely positive for Doom Metal, with many good LPs from important bands and also a few promising debuts. Presumably this is also one of the reasons why the articles that I wrote about doom metal have been among the most visited and appreciated by the community of the readers of this blog.
Based on the above, I decided to prepare a long mixtape (almost two hours) by merging together all the best songs that were released in 2018 (so far). I first selected the 10 best doom bands of the year, then I choose the best tracks from their recent albums, and finally arranged and mixed the songs in order to create a single, coherent but also dynamic flow of music.
I’m confident that the compilation will be appreciated by both the fans of doom and also those who’re less familiar with the genre.
This is the state of doom in 2018. These are the best bands. Now enjoy the mix, and spread it.
