Odin's Top Ten List for 2014



1.      Triptykon – Melana Chasmata  
  • Nothing else was even close to this album, untouchably good.


2.      Yob – Clearing The Path To Ascend
  • One of the most mind-blowing albums of the year, this one takes you on a journey


3.      The Body – I Shall Die Here 
  • Re-inventing themselves yet again with some beautiful darkness


4.      Exhumed/Iron Reagan – Split
  • The opposite of the others on this list ahead of them, just a bunch of punky, thrashy goodness


5.      Goatwhore – Constricting Rage Of The Merciless 
  • Solid, crushing, just what you would expect from them but with some tasty twists and turns as well 


6.      Falls of Rauros/Panopticon – Split
  • All of the intensity and beauty you could ever want from black metal


7.      At The Gates – At War With Reality 
  •  No, they didn't top “Slaughter of the Soul”, but did you really think they would?  Still a damn fine album from one of the all time greats


8.      Mortualia – Blood of the Hermit
  • If you want black metal,you got it with this one


9.      Death Penalty – S/T 
  • Take the best of traditional heavy metal and NWOBHM and you still wouldn't beat this album.  Great stuff


10.  Behemoth – The Satanist
  • Nergal is back and better than ever. Love it when bands keep improving on the past while still maintaining what makes them great.
