Eyehategod - Take As Needed For Pain

I always like to keep a track on site visits to my blog, and and yesterday I noticed I was getting a few hits sent my way via Google searches for keyword search combinations such as “terrorizer” and “best sludge album” as well as a few others of a similar nature.

So, always eager to please my readership, I have gone through my back issues of Terrorizer (I have back to #37 with a few omissions here and there) and located the Sludge Special that they ran over issues 187-188. So, here are the Top 20 Sludge Albums that they listed in issue 188 under the heading “Filth Parade”. I hope this is what people were after.

  1. Eyehategod – Take As Needed For Pain (Centaury Media 1993)
  2. Eyehategod – Dopesick (Century Media 1996)
  3. Crowbar – Crowbar (Pavement Music 1993)
  4. Melvins – Gluey Porch Treatments (Alchemy 1986)

  7. Iron Monkey – Our Problem (Earache 1998)

    This is the most legitimate list I’ve seen for a very long time, no progressive “sludge” bullshit and no post metal sludge wanna be albums either…
    It still lacks things but Terrorizer isn’t that familiar with the underground in the end of the day…
