We heard you like lists, so here are the Top 10 metal records of 2016 as selected by Dr. K, Link, and Boss the Ross!
If you are anything like me, you saw all the EOTY lists and recognized about half of the bands, could pronounce about a third of them, and listened to almost none of them. Lucky four you, the Toilet ov Hell compiled nearly all of them in one place!
2014 has been a banner year in heavy metal. Dissonant death metal is on the rise. Black metal, in its multifarious forms, continues to seethe and boil over in the underground. An entire army of technical death metal bands unleashed their widdlies, and more traditional stalwarts stood firm. Amid all the chaos of year-end listmania, you may be facing severe option paralysis. Perhaps you don’t have the time to listen to all of the albums we’ve listed and are in dire need of a few songs to help you decide how to spend your precious, fleeting grains in the hourglass. Well never fear, because I polled the writers and members of our little community, and each of us has presented our single favorite song of 2014. If you have a suggestion for the single best song of 2014, drop it in the comments. Let’s get this done!
Today your friendly editors are sharing their picks for the best of 2014. Ch-ch-check it.
