Pooh's Q1 Of 2014

After a really slow start of the year its starting to clear up, especially with rcertain albums on rthe horizon. rList is best of 2014 so far.
1The Great Old Ones

Atmospheric Black metal, heavily influenced by Lovecraft. See my review for a detailed explanation. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe7cNUBv9TA]
2Sun Worship
Elder Giants

Atmospheric Black Metal, similar to earlier Wolves in the Throne Room (with a flair of Burzum). Only without the use of ambient (bar the dark ambient album closer). Highly recommended. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJkfHJHFCdk]

A mixture of Atmospheric Black Metal and ambient, where the atmosphere always takes priority. Only discovered this album recently, but it hit me like a truck. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51mpYWCr3F0]
4Audrey Fall

Super sweet mixture of Post-, and Post-metal. A tad generic, but flawlessly executed. It reminds me somewhat of Red Sparowes. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2q4hflW84I]
5Morbus Chron

Best 2014 Death Metal. Most likely will remain with this title for the entire year. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXv-acWqp9M]
Melana Chasmata

Blackened Doom, a haunting, vile and monstrous album. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4a8UGehzIE]

A Progressive, neo-classical folk album. Kind of a teaser for their sophomore album. Amazing instrumentals and even better vocals. [https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=s4PYUaZq2yA]

Neo-folk with vocals. Not as breathtaking, or groundbreaking as Vali. But a must hear for any fan of the genre. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UU4VtPTXGcY]
9Marissa Nadler

Indie pop with some ambient. She has a really great voice and the songs are pretty as fuck. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_KVavjkdTs]
10I Am Heresy
Thy Will

Metalcore album of the year, mark my words and await my review. Side project from BoySetsFire vocalist Nathan Gray. [https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=6J6Sz5TF52o]

Parisian Post-Metal band, think A Year Of No Light but heavier, angrier and dirtier. Oh, also with vocals. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOtgq750x6A]

Progressive, black metal with a post-metal vibe. Great listen. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Mq7qcwRJaM]
13Artificial Brain
Labyrinth Constellation

Tech death done right. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLkJW9oez0I]

The Fire Swan is not the most original Doom Metal you'll hear, but its a finely executed one. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ox3TKx48dk0]
15Nux Vomica
Nux Vomica

Long await third album by this Crust/Post-metal outfit. It's not the behemoth I hoped it would be, but its far from bad. [https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=afbDSZg0AK0]
16Ered Wethrin
All Song Ceased

Ambient black metal, side project of Lustre. [https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=lkwKbd-HC80]
17 Lux Occulta

I'm not even going to try and explain this shit. [https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=IXuBb0FiAOQ]
18Current 93
I Am The Last Of All The Field That Fell

New album by Current 93, and its exactly what you would expect. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8RCQxMqEHk]
19Tides of Man
Young and Courageous

Seems the loss of their vocalist only made them better. Great instrumental Post- hardcore. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFCtZviovSU]
20Woods of Desolation
As The Stars

Production leaves a lot to be desired, but the music itself is pretty cool. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePHvl9vFmeo]
