As an idea for a new column on The Blog of Doom, I thought it would be fun to ask some metal musicians to choose their ultimate 8-10 song playlist and provide a bit of commentary on each choice. First up is Doc, the drummer for Swedish doomsters Below, who just released their debut album Across The Dark River in April. Unsurpisingly, Doc’s list is heavy on Swedish bands and Mercyful Fate, a combination from which Below clearly get their sound. He does have a couple of curveballs in there, though.
Editor’s Notes: I think we can all agree that Doc knocked this idea out of the park and I hope you readers enjoyed this list as much as I did. I’m going to try to make this a regular column here on The Blog of Doom. I’m interested in reader submissions as well as those from artists. Doom on. -JO
