Black Magic and Witchcraft, even Satanism has always been a part of Metal. Stoner/Doom is no different. Hell, Dopelord is releasing Songs for Satan next month!

All of these albums are “album of the month” worthy, in my opinion. As usual, the Top 11 Albums of August are in a virtual tie for the #1 slot.
