DDD's 2014 picks
1Every Time I Die
From Parts Unknown

Hardcore; Metalcore

Debatably their best release. Definitely their most abrasive one. Sick&Fun album.
2Morbus Chron


Beautiful piece of prog/psych OSDM. Swedish smoothness with simply delightful almost acoustic moments.

Doom, Sludge

Definitely their toughest release. I remember trying to get into Thou with it and just putting it aside for a while. When it clicked...it clicked!
4Lord Mantis
Death Mask

Doom, Sludge

One of the most disturbing and suffocating albums I came across (starting with the cover!). I can rec the track Negative Birth, but you're on your own man...
The Satanist

Black Metal, Death Metal

Highly acclaimed, decade's sound defining and a turning point in the band's sound, back to a more Black Metal approach.

Slugs BDM

Lord Gastropod's guided journey through the Slug's rebellion against the Human kind. A metal pun per track!
7Plebeian Grandstand

Black Metal, Hardcore

If you think there's still hope for this World, check Thrvst video ASAP - https://youtu.be/ybo-sfbEMYs
8Full of Hell and Merzbow
Full of Hell and Merzbow

Experimental, Noise, Hardcore

Thrum in the Deep! High Fells m/m/m/ this is the FoH I talk about m/m/m/ disturbing release m/m/m/ one of top 3 FoH releases for me, with Roots and Trumpeting Ecstasy.
9Inter Arma
The Cavern

Sludge, Post, BM

Amazing 1 song EP, 44 minutes of songwriting excellency and genre bending. Windhand's vocalist also appears here as guest.
10The Mire
Glass Cathedrals

Post/Prog Metal

A true hidden gem here TKS to sputuser Shuyin. Personally this touches some Poison The Well and Deftones buttons with a PostMetal vibe (CoL and The Ocean). False Idols, Triple Gemini and Dark Sun are my faves.

Death Metal

This album starts simply beautiful and awesome. The leading pinkfloydish melting solos are simply my beach!
Essence Of The Land

Blackened Death Metal, Prog

Debut EP. 15 minutes of awesomeness.
Once More 'Round the Sun

Prog Metal, Sludge

Although this album got a bad reception (both from me and the general audience) it ended up growing a lot. Chimes at Midnight is a very big track on me.

Prog Metal

Probably their best release, discussing with Lykaia. Great dig if you enjoy both Opeth and Tool.


EHG in a very playful jam mode. Cool intelligeble vocal hooks. Punk mood af. Still badass. I'm oficially a fan of this band's discog and this was a great comeback after 14 years. Recd Tracks - Flags and Cities Bound; Agitation! Propaganda!

Alt Rock, Electronic

What can I say? Do it with your girl...this sweet little Chino project.
17Sensible Soccers

Minimal, Electronic, Psych

And now a break for some non metal Portuguese releases you could dig. This is the debut from a group who's gaining foreign relevance. Cool for relaxing days.
18Bruno Pernadas
How Can We Be Joyful in a World Full of Knowledge?

Jazz Fusion, Psych.

"Lovely tunes ranging from jazz fusion to latin percussion-led loungey melodies to calm ambient, all having a spacey knack. It's lush, it's well composed, it's chill, it's sweet. All you gotta do now is wait for a warm and quiet Summer evening to put this on." by Dedex, couldn't put it better X) Everybody should listen Huzoor tune at least once.
19Capitao Fausto
Pesar o Sol

Psychedelic Rock

These dudes kinda started a modern psychedelic rock scene here in Portugal and this is one of their strongest releases.


What? Thou again? Well nothing they do is even close to weak...even every compilation is a must. Here's one.
21Downfall of Gaia
Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay

Post Black Metal

Goes as hard as beautiful. Moody post BM outfit.
Dark Space III I

Black Metal, Experimental

Breathing evil bleakness.
23Artificial Brain
Labyrinth Constellation

Death Metal, Black Metal, Experimental

Organic Metal Madness. New fave band.

Death Metal

Wait and beg for the grooves.
A World Lit Only by Fire

Post Metal, Industrial
Fall In Line

Metalcore, Post HXC, Math Rock
27Nero di Marte

Death Metal, Experimental

Definitely a step towards their more experimental outfit.
28Vi Som Alskade Varandra Sa Mycket
Den sorgligaste musiken i varlden

Post HXC, Emo

Great Post compositions with high and latent emotional levels.
29Hail the Sun

Post HXC, Math Rock

Yeah album is pretty sweet...everyone is super talented.
30The Contortionist

Prog Metal

Beautiful landscapes of ebb and flow.
31Code Orange
I Am King


The band you all love to hate.
The Necrotic Manifesto


Definitely not my fave from Aborted. They did the excellent job though,
Picturing a Sense of Loss

Black gaze, Psych

If you kinda like Deafheaven but crave for better songwriting.
34Dead Congregation
Promulgation of the Fall


A sea of OSDM riffs.
35Cannibal Corpse
A Skeletal Domain


TKS Notrap. This one hits the 4 mark on every aspect, except for tenderness.
36Old Man Gloom
The Ape of God I

Post Metal, Hardcore

Heavy, frightening, a dark take on Post Metal.

Thrash Metal

Too many riffs!
38Temple of Void
Of Terror And The Supernatural

Death Doom

As promising debut as the cover suggests. Awesome deathdoom piece. Living proof DM can be really cool and extreme without tons of speed.
39Spectral Lore

Atmo Black Metal Folk

A journey through mountains and seas...sun and storms...heaven and hell.
The Divination Of Antiquity

Black Metal Folk

I guess my BM journey is endless, and it just started. Great release!
Foundations of Burden


It grew...
42Internal Rot
Mental Hygiene


...of the best kind...and the fastest, probably.
43Emma Ruth Rundle
Some Heavy Ocean

Indie Folk
