ITT: album covers that perfectly represent the music
>Vast, and just short of being lifeless.
I think The No Music has a perfectly descriptive cover, because you look at it, and you're like, "what the fuck even is this?", and then you listen to it, and you're like "what the fuck even is this?"

>realize I can become mu-core if I made pretentious faggots defend my 6 random note rhythm drowned in useless feedback that doesn't go anywhere but a different octave every ten to twenty minutes.
Seriously, I've heard this two to three dozen times, mostly while studying or ambient sleep music, and I've never been able to enjoy it more than my old amp feedback recordings I recorded to edit up and fuck with the sound. It's almost practically the same shit, can anyone help me into this? Or is it always just 'senseless amp and distorted notes' with nothing more to hear out?
I'm not dissing the genre, Boris's Feedback is one of my favorite albums in noise general, and favorite Boris album, as well as Electric Wizard being one of my favorite bands just throughout all genres.
I like Doom and Drone, but I can't get into Earth and understand the praise it gets. It'd be a cool underground ambient metal group in bandcamp, but a defining act that people whiten their pants over? I can't get that.
Candlemass, Electric Wizard, Neurosis and Acid Bath are also pretty good, and some Burzum albums that kinda get close to the core of the sound.
Not the same guy, but (assuming you're already familiar with Earth and Sunn O))).) some good drone metal albums are:
Boris - The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked
Jesu - Jesu
The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand
Earth 2 gets a lot of praise because it's very influential in the drone doom genre and was really the first album of it's kind. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's the best. Personally I prefer Sunn O)))'s OO Void to it, but that doesn't negate the influence that Earth 2 had on groups like Sunn O))) and Boris
Electric Wizard is pretty great. I have Acid Bath cued up after I finish this album. Though I thought Neurosis and Acid Bath were closer to sludge? The genres are pretty similar though, I've just never seen those bands described as doom.
Lysol did it first, and it wasn't just "let's play the same note for 30 minutes lol how innovative!"
This album reminds me of pic related. The album cover for this one is pretty accurate too.
this and almost every other Motorhead cover by extension
