The Metal I Listened to in 2014 and Liked Enough to Bother Making a List About It

The year 2014 is about to end and it’s time for the traditional end of the year lists. When this year first started, I was pretty underwhelmed by the metal music coming out. Behemoth was an early contender and Cynic was pretty good even though I felt that Kindly Bent to Free Us was not as strong as Focus. But as the year went on, I found more hidden gems and the releases got stronger and stronger towards the end. Overall 2014 was a very strong year for metal. A lot of older bands still have what it takes and a lot of new blood are showing that metal is still capable of pushing the boundaries of the genre. So here is the list for my favorite metal records for 2014 in alphabetical order except for my absolute favorite which I will list in the end.

A Tribute to the PlayStation 20 Years Later

Wow, it's been 20 years since the PlayStation was released in Japan back in 1994. For video games, that's literally an eternity. And it's been an eternity since this blog has been updated. I'd like to be more active and I intend to do so. I'd also like to create a proper site for this blog and give it a good design overall. I've already redid the logo and gave myself an avatar, so that's a start. But before I get into that, enjoy my thoughts and experiences of the Sony PlayStation!
