Groan’s Top 10 Albums Of 2010

Groan

Groan - Wizards, Sleepy Ones

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, we thought we’d catch up with some of our favourite bands & find out what they’d been listening to. First up are old school riff addicts, Groan – http://www.myspace.com/groanuk. We let them fight it out over who they wanted in their top 10. Appearing from a cloud of smoke, they returned with this list of doom, doom & a bit more doom. So here it is, in no specific order:

Cathedral – The Guessing Game

The Riff Wizard – I know this album hasn’t gone down so well but I love it. Cathedral have done something new and I think they did it very well. Loving the use of the mellotron.
Forest-Dwelling Fuzz Creature – Witness Funeral of Dreams played live and it will all become clear.

The Jim Jones Revue – Burning Your House Down

Mazzereth – Full on maxed out Rock and Roll. It stinks of Little Richard’s stinky best rock and roll moments.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats – Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats

Mazz – The sounds of something that is not of this world. Almost like some evil twisted fucker just decided to get into his time machine and ruin some hot chicks from the 1960′s.
FDFC - I love everything about this band.

Dopefight – Buds

Mazz – Sweet lady riff has just entered the room, please light one up and lap up the thunder.

Chrome Hoof – Crush Depth

FDFC – I’ve loved Mr. Bungle for years. This is like Mr. Bungle but from outer space. Something a bit different. Lasers, basslines and dancing.

Witchsorrow - Witchsorrow

Mazz – Wither before this doom of doom. If thee do not wither before this doom then thee are dead already.

Ghost – Opus Eponymous

FDFC – Believe the hype, embrace the pseudo-Satanism. This is clearly the bassist’s band – listen to how he guides each song from hook to catchy hook.

Heaven & Hell – Neon Nights : 30 Years of Heaven & Hell

TRW – Amazing live album. Perfect set, the band are on form. And of course, who doesn’t love Dio?

Place Of Skulls – As A Dog Returns

Thor’s Hammer – Mix The Obsessed with Led Zeps lighter moments and you have this monumental album. Victor Griffin is a beast.

Cough – Ritual Abuse

TH – Such utter filth! You can almost smell the blood of a tortured virgin.

So there you have it. Groan’s top 10. Now we’ll leave you with the video for The Martyr King, taken from the very sexy Sleeping Wizard album.
