Anthony's Best of 2014 list or whatever

I'm a pretty simple guy, so here's my stuff

Top 10 Albums of 2014

1. Misery Index - The Killing Gods (seriously not enough love for this album)
2. Revocation - Deathless (out of my top spot for the first time since 2010)
3. Cynic - Kindly Bent to Free Us
4. Every Time I Die - From Parts Unknown
5. Aborted - The Necrotic Manifesto
6. At The Gates - At War with Reality
7. Machine Head - Bloodstone & Diamonds
8. Black Crown Initiate - The Wreckage of Stars
9. Cannabis Corpse - From Wisdom to Baked
10. Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain

Honourable Mention: Unearth - Watchers of Rule.

It was a toss up between Cannibal Corpse and Unearth for the #10 spot, but I went with Cannibal since they surprised me the most, while Unearth's album was more of the same from them that you'd come to expect.

Worst Album of 2014: In Flames - Siren Charms.

Other than Matt Heafy, who possibly disagrees with me?

Biggest Surprise of 2014: Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain.

Couldn't get into these guys before. This album has such a great groove throughout.

Biggest Dissapointment of 2014: Rise Against - The Black Market

A strong first single couldn't help this album. Other than a couple of other gems like "Awake Too long" and "The Eco-Terrorist in Me", the album falls pretty flat.

There's some solid stuff in that top ten. Misery Index put out a GREAT album. I also liked Machine Head and Unearth. Your top ten looks familiar.

I didn't listen to a lot of new stuff this year (maybe 30 albums tops) but that Misery Index is definitely close to the top of my list. Solid, heavy-as-fuck album.

Same here, I listen to maybe 30 new albums a year at the most. I spend a lot of time getting into past albums from bands that are new to me.

Cool list. Misery Index are grossly underrated. The fact that I see those guys out at shows jamming out and supporting the scene like us gives them bonus points.

I'm a huge Cynic fan and thought revisiting the cd would help but it didn't. The drop off from Traced is monumental for me. Maybe if it was instrumental I might like it better...

I'm glad to see Misery Index, Revocation, ETID, and AtG getting some love. All of those albums were so fucking EPIC. Love your list my friend
