Doom Charts for 12/22/12

Plenty of upheaval at the top of the list with 5 of the top 6 songs retiring from the charts.  "The Queen of Death" by Necronomicon, "The Cloven Sea" by Arkham Witch, "Tower of Skulls" by Beastwars, "Leaving You" by Graveyard and the epic "Follow the Forest Lights" by The Wandering Midget are joined by "Night" from Ice Dragon's 'Tome of the Future Ancients' in music history.  Their places are taken by such worthy songs as "Searching" by Three Seasons; "I Am Thunder" by Mammoth Thunderpower; "Rivertown" by Bison, Bison; "Amaranth" by Windhand; "Understanding Ouroboros" by Ice Dragon and "Cosmic Cruiser X" by Mage.  "Searching" was the highest debut at number 12.

It's always painful to bump albums from the top 25 because I still like every album that gets bumped.  I have a 'Top 30 Albums' playlist on which Vinum Sabbatum, Mount Fuji and Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell are still on after all these months.  Maybe next week we'll go with a Top 30 Albums here.  For now though, a number of new entries in the Albums chart are making waves including new releases by The Heavy Eyes; Dryasdust; Year of the Goat; The Quartet of Woah! and Three Seasons.
