ProgSphere’s AwesomeCast: Episode 09 – 2011 Year in Review – Doomed, Stoned & Twisted

The second podcast in our series of AwesomeCasts which highlight the best records released in 2011 is named “Doomed, Stoned & Twisted”. As you might guess, this one deals with doom and stoner music. Twisted comes as a “label” which dwells between these two familiar (but not identical) subgenres.

So what you get here is another 20 bands with 20 songs taken from 20 albums I consider among the best releases of the year. That being said, you’ll find a few choices you might really trust such as YOB, Premonition 13 (featuring Scott Wino), Crowbar, Black Pyramid and Weedeater wrapped up with newcomers Dark Castle, Skraeckoedlan + many more.

In case you missed to know about the ProgSphere’s December series of podcasts, here is the full schedule:

December 1st – “All About Prog”
December 8th – “Doomed, Stoned & Twisted”
December 15th – “The Darkest Side of Prog”
December 22nd – “Psyched Out, Through Space”
December 29th – “xCeptional”

As it’s shown above, the main theme of the next AwesomeCast will be dealing with the bands which explore the term progressive beyond the limits of extreme and dark.

Until the next week, enjoy while being doomed, stoned & twisted!
