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.
