Morbus Chron Sweven
This album is an interesting experiment in the sense that Morbus Chron try to blend psychedelic/'70s rock with the repugnant death metal of outfits such as Autopsy. That being said, the album isn't as varied as people present it to be (the band's guitarist has said while being interviewed, that he knows about 5-6 riffs on the guitar and that's readily evident on the album). Moreover, a good portion of the songs are too loose-structured, and drag too long for their own good. Still, Morbus Chron's sophomore album deserves to be jammed from time to time, at least.
Steel Panther All You Can Eat
It's been ages since glam rock/metal was THIS effective.... SUNSET STRIP GLAMSTERZ NOT DEAD.-
Nightstalker Dead Rock Commandos
Nightstalker just don't know how to make boring heavy/stoner rock and this album is no exception, even though the band here sounds more "loose" than usual.
Gustavo Santaolalla The Motorcycle Diaries
Awesome soundtrack for an awesome film. On another note, this reminds me of Paris, Texas film score from Ry Cooder.
Reek Necrogenesis
This band and album just came out of nowhere to take the lead, as far as adventurous thrash metal anno 2014 goes. Song arrangements blend tech thrash with '80s metal, top notch lead guitar shredding, prog rock, even ambient (album closer!!). On another note, this album has BY FAR the best sound production I've heard IN A VERY LONG time!!! FINALLY, a band that has not given in the homogenized/compressed/plastic dictatorship of today's metal productions, plus I don't think that Reek had such a big budget at their disposal in order to do such an excellent job.
Lost Society Terror Hungry
Highly energetic, semi-technical, the sophomore Lost Society album is, without a doubt, a thrash metal jam that fans of the genre should pay attention to. The album's only flaw is the abundance of tracks that assess it as somewhat derivative in terms of domestic abuse. It will slay in live concerts, though.
Massacre Back from Beyond
There's some really solid early '90s death metal at display here (ideal for live concerts!). However, the abundance of tracks and the formulaic song structures deprive Back from Beyond of additional merit, in terms of domestic listening jams.
