Although the writing staff here at Toilet ov Hell has impeccable taste, we wanted to offer y’all an outsider’s perspective on the best albums of 2014. So we reached out to some well-known celebrities. Unfortunately they wouldn’t return our calls or respond to our 200 emails (´・ω・`), so we had to turn to some metal musicians for input. Thankfully, the awesome dudes from Baring Teeth and Patrons of the Rotting Gate were more than happy to comply. Pay attention here, toileteers, because this is how year-end lists should look.

8. Blut Aus NordMemoria Vetusta III – Saturnian Poetry

7. Baring TeethGhost Chorus Among Old Ruins

6. SchammaschContradiction

5. Plebian GrandstandLowgazers -Kind of sounds like Celeste and Deathspell Omega put in a blender. The album cover looks like my logo so I feel like we’re in this together.

4. DisentombMisery – Unrelenting technical brutal death metal is always enjoyable, but this album has a replay value that I honestly wasn’t expecting. I haven’t enjoyed a BDM album this much since Defeated Sanity’s Chapters of Repugnance. An addictive mixture of slamz, chromatic riffs and Gorguts/Ulcerate-ish bendy dissonant sections.

3. ThantifaxathSacred White Noise – What I love about this album, other than the obvious technical proficiency and well written, songs is the atmosphere. On the surface the album is somewhat comparable to Dodecahedron’s S/T, but Sacred White Noise has a cold, hypnotic quality that kind of reminds me of Meshuggah’s Catch 33.

2. AbigorLeytmotif Luzifer – I’m embarrassed that this is the first Abigor album I’ve really checked out. Utterly ruthless and evil (oooo) sounding throughout. A highlight for me is the Fas-esque OTT lead guitar parts which jump in at seemingly random times. Probably my favourite vocal performance this year as well.

1. OrgoneThe Joyless Parson – It feels strange putting this in a 2014 list as a rough version has been floating around the internet (and my iPod) for a couple of years. Although very technical throughout, the main attraction is the extremely dense songwriting. Get into it.
