Six albums for Halloween


I actually took off from work today so I could do stuff with my kids. However if I could dedicate my Halloween to just listening to music and needed six albums to make up my day then here are the ones I would choose and the playing order.

1)Iron Maiden-The number of the beast
My favorite Maiden album and one of their darker albums as well.

2)Black Sabbath-Vol. 4
Any of the first six Sabbath albums would work here, but for today I'll go with this one. One of if not their heaviest.

3)Electric Wizard-Come my fanatics
A big does of crazy slow, fuzzed out doom.

4)Misfits-Walk among us
A fun blast and I think it was the Misfits at their peak.

5)King Diamond-The Eye
Any of the King's first five might do, but I always took to this one a lot.

6)Slayer-Reign in blood
I would end the Halloween on a strong blast from Slayer.

***Feel free to add your own picks.

1. Metallica - Kill 'Em All
2. Tool - Aenima
3. Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss
4. Metallica - Ride the Lightening
5. Motorhead - Ace of Spades
6. Tool - Lateralus

I would possibly throw some King Crimson in there, but I figured their albums as a whole aren't too heavy, but they definitely have some intense dark moments.

Usually I mandatorily play the Halloween II soundtrack and at least one Misits album, but it being a very hard week, yesterday it was mainly Wednesday 13 and White Zombie, though I listened to Ride the Lightning many times the week before
