Nocte's 2014 So Far

There's not too much of the year left and things are winding down, or in my case getting busier. Here's what you should be listening to from this year.
1Anaal Nathrakh
Desideratum


Pales in comparison to the band's previous record, 'Vanitas'. Rather 'Desideratum' sits as a modernized 'Hell Is Empty, And All The Devils Are Here'.
2Eden Circus
Marula


More post rock than metal, Eden Circus is a surprising and unknown element in an industry over--polluted with samey acts.
3Eluveitie
Origins


Folk-y pagan death metal. I'm generally a sucker for these sorts of things, after interviewing Chris this album was made all the more enjoyable.
4Aversions Crown
Tyrant


Mindless deathcore that sits in the 3.5/5 range.
5Falls Of Rauros
Believe In No Coming Shore
6Yob
Clearing The Path To Ascend


Masters of their craft.
7Cannibal Corpse
A Skeletal Domain


So glad these guys have still got it. The riffs are still as fresh as they were twenty years ago.
8Wreck and Reference
Want
9Venowl
Patterns Of Failure


Tortured funeral doom, agonizing in its despair and failure. If you like the doom with twenty minute tracks and the feels to boot, this is the shit for you.
10Vaiya
Remnant Light


Bandcamp is a wonderful resource, Vaiya is a wonderful atmospheric album.
11Under The Sun
Under The Sun
12Thou
Heathen
13Soilwork
Beyond The Infinite
14 Sidious
Revealed in profane splendour


Kaotoxin have been on fire for years, that's not going to stop any time soon. With the inclusion of the Colosus sole member behind the drum kit, Revealed In Profane Splendor is a modern day death album that will play for years.
15Septa
Destroyer
16Saor
Aura


If there was ever an album of the year contender, this is one of them.
17Revocation
Deathless
18Profetus
As All Seasons Die
19Nonpoint
The Return
20 Nesseria
Fractures
21MYRKUR
MYRKUR
22Witch Mountain
Mobile Of Angels
23Vinterbris
Solace
24Vermin Womb
Permanence


Blackened violence. throatruinerrecords.com
25Impetuous Ritual
Unholy Congregation Of Hypocritical Ambivalence


Shit Jac listens to. Possibly the year's best murk.
26Impure Wilhelmina
Black Honey
27Incantation
Dirges of Elysium


#2 Shit Jac listens to. Doesn't have the same impact as Vanquish In Vengeance but will still rip the meat from your face given the chance.
28Inferi
The Path Of Apotheosis


2014, the year of the death.
29 Clouds
Doliu


Some albums resonate with you more than others, this is my current album of the year.
30DOOM:VS
Earthless
31Manes
Be All End All


Was not expecting this experimental show. Manes is not my normal musical venture.
32Mastodon
Once More 'Round The Sun
33 Morbid Crucifixion
Decaying Human Flesh


Bree Bree Sick Phallus Reviewer
34Walk Through Fire
Hope Is Misery
35 Ceremonial Castings
Cthulhu


Hail blackened Cthulhu
36 Blue Pills
Blue Pills


How come all these albums look similar?
37Bloodbath
GRAND MORBID FUNERAL


Too long between drinks for these guys. Personally I'm glad they kicked a few time wasting members.
38Arkan
Sofia


Not as death metal-ly as their past releases and all the better for it.
39As We Draw
Mirages


Another quiet contender for your end of year lists.
40 Downfall of Gaia
Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay


Moody. Bitchin'
