My Current Jamyjamz Of 2014

Rec me some things por favor. This list probbably isn't proof of it, but I'm looking for some really cool metal since I feel like I haven't heard anything like that that I enjoy much of recently.
1Trophy Scars
Holy Vacants


I mean...you saw this coming right? So good. We have the bluesy style of songs like Crystallophobia and Archangel along with the raw power of Qeres and Gutted. Everything Disappearing's 2nd half is one of the most gorgeous things this band has achieved. The real highlight for me is the combination of Chicago Typewriter and Vertigo. Like...every second hits hard...possibly my favorite song combination of all time. Seeing them again this Saturday (which is funny since I haven't seen a big band live since them) and I could not be more excited.
2Icarus The Owl
Icarus The Owl


It's as fun as it is intricate. Every track is fantastic and so far it's in a battle with Holy Vacants for my AOTY so far. Just listen.
3La Dispute
Rooms of the House


Okay...it's not a 5 (yet), but this band is still doing what they do best with some new twists thrown in. I think this lacks the impact that Wildlife/Somewhere had. Overall, that's fine for what they were going for, but I just feel like that's what makes the album feel as short as it is. Yet on the contrary, the more, I guess, restrained type of sound is excellent in the Woman tracks. In the end, I still love this album and it's a worthy addition to their discography. And besides, lyrically this is as grand as you would've expected if not more.
4Chiodos
Devil


Either the songs were Chiodosy, catchy, or just plain meh/unforgettable. I Am Everything That's Normal, Duct Tape, and Why The Munster Matters do it the best in terms of their sound. If you liked their previous works minus Illuminaudio, this is basically that.
5The All-American Rejects
Move Along


Okay, so I'm including all of their discography in here. Their singles were my elementary/middle school music and coming back to it all felt nostalgic so I checked the rest of what they have. It's pretty damn good pop-punk that sounds 1000x better than what passes as pop-punk today.
6A Bunny's Caravan
Draining Puddles, Retrieving Treasures


I have never got into a post-rock album this easily. It's cool that it has it's emo style too and it's shame there is only 1 album. But every second enthralled me.
7The Venetia Fair
Every Sick, Disgusting Thought...


Seeing them Saturday as well and they are so good. The Day I Set Them Free is such a well made single and the rest of this is just as hectic.
8Hop Along
Get Disowned


These vocals. My god, these vocals. If you are looking for good females vocals, look no further since your expectations are about to be exceeded.
