Toilet ov Hell Best of 2014: The Spotify Playlist

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!

Of course, not all of albums we loved this year are available on Spotify, so be sure to revisit the original lists here, here, here, herehere  and here to hunt down those lesser distributed albums. For example, I am sure many of you can guess which contributor’s EOTY list is least represented on such a mainstream platform.

Unless you have a spare 80 hours, I recommend following our playlist and listening on shuffle. The variety here is unmatched, and it is a tremendous amount of fun chilling out with Sea Oleena, partying with Destrage, shredding with Abysmal Dawn, then slaying posers with Twilight Force back to back.

Unfortunately, the embedded playlist maxed out at 200 songs, so if you want more than just this sample, find our playlist : Toilet ov Hell Best of 2014.

    Thank you, based Logician. And thank you, Terlet O’Heck for sharing it with us.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      I really like what is happening here.

      • VVorld Peace

        Ed, I thought of something else I hate.

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          Pls inform me.

          • It’s YOU

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            It isn’t.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            “It’s YOU” is the answer to my question in the article —> ” I am sure many of you can guess which contributor’s EOTY list is least represented on such a mainstream platform.”

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I got that joke, lol

          • VVorld Peace

            I have to use a community laundry center, and I want to murder people who leave their wet clothes in the machine well after the cycle has ended.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I work full time at a dry cleaner / laundromat. I understand those feels.

          • VVorld Peace

            Seriously. Other people have stuff to do/laundry to get done. You aren’t special. Get your stuff out of the machine.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Anything else on your mind?

          • NO, YOU GOTTA WAIT TIL FLUSH IT FRIDAY.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Joe I’m going out with a new chick tonight. Looks hawt. I was gonna announce that at 3:00 pm but we are here now.

            Also, this is probably not the time or the place to do this, but, I wanna get my own list again next year. Lol.

          • Damn dude. You’re always out with new ladies! You wildcat, you.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            1. date women

            2. become the world’s greatest metal blogger

          • KJM

            3. Profit!!!

          • Tyree

            Edward: Professional Ladies Man.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Working my way up to that title, falling pretty short lol.

            A.B.W.

            Always Be Writing

          • CT-12

            Empty your mind of everything but dating women, and becoming the world’s greatest metal blogger

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Zenlike achievement of dual goals concurrently.

          • CT-12

            I was actually trying to post a SpongeBob gif, but it wouldn’t show up. Also, when I typed “Spongebob” just now, disqus automatically capitalized the “S” and “B”. SpongeBob > jesus

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            It, too, took me a minute to figure out how gifs work on here. Boy am I glad I did!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Is that you on the right?

          • Stockhausen

            So this is how hackers work! This is so devious!

          • VVorld Peace

            I love that hackers in stock photos always wear masks to help us identify them as bad.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            It’s not just in the stock photos.

            Haxorz = NSBM band members

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            JJM if you don’t hear back from me, let it be known the Toilet Ov Freud has all of my heart.

          • VVorld Peace

            What Joe said.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I missed that opportunity.

          • Stockhausen

            Shove them in with the clothes and put it on the long cycle with hot water.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            You could always take it for them and put it in an empty cart.

          • KJM

            I have my own washer and there’s a dryer in the basement that I only have to share with 2-3 other people.

          • That’s why I no longer wear any clothes. A thick layer of congealed filth surrounds my body to protect me from the outside world.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            worship filth.

          • VVorld Peace

            That’s most excellent. We might move next summer after I finish my doctorate. I make enough to keep us afloat and even make progress towards paying off student loans, but med school isn’t getting any less expensive.

          • CT-12

            Take a poop in their machine and restart their cycle

        • You know what I hate? Posers who don’t like MANOWAR

  • I know what I’m doing at work today.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    I have been jamming this playlist all week. So far I am digging Mindmaze, Schizoid Lloyd, Soen, and a few other nice new additions to my library because of it.

    • MindMaze is fantastic! <3

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        It was weird, I almost never really seek out that genre of music, especially with female vocals (for no gender bias reason whatsoever, I promise), but she is unreal and the music is great. I dig.

        • I’m in the same boat, but I met them through FB groups and was introduced to their music that way. They’re mega solid peeps and musicians

    • Stockhausen

      Schizoid Lloyd>>>>>>
      I’ll be doing a review/interview with them sometime soonish.

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        Niiice. They remind me a bit of The Dear Hunter, which I remember you saying you enjoyed as well.

        • Stockhausen

          Haha, those were my thoughts exactly. Parts of Suicide Penguin could have easily been on Act III.

  • Tyree

    You have no idea how happy I am to see all of the Sea Oleena love in this toilet.

    • YourLogicIsFlushed

      A song from that album came up as the first song when I hit shuffle. It was unexpected for a mostly metal playlist, but it’s friggin great.

    • My wife digs her now, Tyree.

      • Tyree

        Tyree: Making wives like things since 12/19/2014 12:18 PM.

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          Before that!

        • Stockhausen

          My wife and I jam Eden House as well, which was your work. But she hasn’t gotten into Yhdarl with me for some reason.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            That’s weird of her.

          • Stockhausen

            Yeah, what’s the friggin’ deal right? Just sit in darkness with me for 50 minutes straight and listen to a wall of hideous wailing and terrifying haunting melodies. It’s not too much to ask, aside from being too much to ask.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Tell your wife to get her poser face out of your awesome metal face.

          • Stockhausen

            I tell her that fairly often, but for some reason it doesn’t have the impact that I was dang sure it should have had.

          • Tyree

            Speaking of Yhdarl. I recently added some new shit to my bandcamp collection that you may like.

            https://bandcamp.com/TyreeGrindhart

          • Gluteus_Maximus_Rage

            If I may, I’m going to use “GET YOUR POSER FACE OUT OF MY AWESOME METAL FACE” any time a coworker comes into my work area and drops a comment or passive aggressive quip about what’s on my stereo.
            #paradigm-shift

          • Tyree

            Every wife should like Yhdarl.

            #Wifefacts

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            That’s going to be on my initial questionnaire.

            1. Can you cook?

            2. Are you a racist?

            3. Do you jamz Thdarl?

          • Tyree

            I hope it works out brotha!

          • Tyree
          • Edward #negrod4eva
          • Tyree

            Yes, like when I was 17, my sister wanted to loan my Def Leppard. I said “No way!”.

          • Stockhausen

            Well, Ed pretty much nailed my response.

          • I’m lucky, my wife lets me jam whatever I want in the car. She’s a keeper.

  • I’m seeing a surprising lack of Manowar. Manowar is album of the year, every year.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      They’ve taken you as well!

      • We are Manowar.

      • WHO ARE YOU?

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Jack plz

          • KJM

            You’ve turned back into a philosophical butthole.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            En myönnä enkä tunnusta

          • KJM

            Off to Google Translate I go!

          • No need, I already translated it, it says: I love Britney Spears I am her biggest fan.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Why do you have to be so mean?

          • It’s all in good fun, as least im not calling you a loofah right and left like M Shadows

          • KJM

            Actually, according to Google it says “I love David Lee Roth and want to have his babies”.

          • MY google translates it to “Pantera is trve metal”

          • Stockhausen

            I put your translation in my Google translation, and it said “GET OUT STAY GRIND.”

          • DONT CALL ME JACK STRANGER, IT’S MR BAUER

      • M Shadows!

        I smell a loofah!

    • Battle Hymn has been the album of the year since 1702

  • KJM

    The last work of the late Ikey Owens(formerly of The Mars Volta) were guest spots on ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun’ and ‘Run The Jewels 2’. Give him a thought when you listen to those discs if you’re not a TMV fan. R.I.P.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      The Mars Volta also contributed to El-P’s untouchable I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead on the first track “Tasmanian Pain Coaster”.

  • I’m starting to think Narada should have made my top ten.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      Burial Hex’s The Heirophant should have been in my top 3 and it didn’t even make the damn list.

    • Simon PhoenixKing

      If we were allowed more than three honorable mentions, Narada might have made it on there.

  • EsusMoose

    I’ve been slowly burning through people’s top albums that last week or 2. I’ve only skipped wovenwar because they’re fucking awful

    • Howard Dean

      Any favorites so far?

      • EsusMoose

        Solstafir was fucking fantastic, archspire, plebian grandstand, thou, yob, Nero di marte, inter amra and Bastard sapling, dust moth. I’ve put off making a top 10 because there’s still more to go and many other I’d name off

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Solstafir was good, but it didn’t end up on my list.

          • it’s great! i played it at a neighbors house with some people around and they all dug it too (none of them metalheads)

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You have non-metalhead neighbours? Move or they’ll have to move.

          • KJM

            The only thing I don’t like about my neighborhood is that it’s not very Metal at all.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I love that there are no metalheads near me. Fucking awesome! Every metalhead is a dickhead.

          • KJM

            But that would include us, would it not?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            It does indeed. Joe says that I hate metal, so obviously I’m not a dickhead.

          • KJM

            Seeing as I don’t care for about 90% of the stuff that’s talked about here, that probably applies to me too.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Then you’re a drughead.

          • KJM

            Tell that to my regenerating brain cells, been sober since last weekend.

          • yeah but we ain’t letting you go anywhere

          • don’t let Joe get you down like that, we still think you’re one!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            He’s kind of right though

          • EsusMoose

            It was easily the best album this year to show people who aren’t metal heads. There were a few others I can’t think of

          • Manes is also a good non-metal album

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Can confirm!

          • CT-12

            I’m amazed how many people here dig Solstafir yet would totally rip on something like new In Flames (which Solstafir reminds me of, just if Coldplay was covering their songs).

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I hear no similarity.

          • CT-12

            Maybe that comparison is a bit of a stretch, but I guess mainly what I’m getting at is that newer In Flames (can’t speak for Siren Charms) sounds about 20 times harder than Solstafir. Saw those guys a week or so ago, couldn’t believe how much I heard about these guys who were so incredibly soft. That’s not a bad thing, I guess I’m just sore over the seeming hypocrisy of people shitting all over stuff like In Flames or something like Deafheaven while supporting a band like Solstafir just because they’re more obscure or something. I’m really not trying to pick on anybody who likes them though, everybody should like whatever they want.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I like deafheaven. Also, read Karhu’s comment for some good points.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I liked Siren Charms, but I can offer you a couple of reasons. Anders is a horrible singer. The songs bear much more electronic and pop-like influence, while also forced into a three-minute mold. The athmopherics are not there on SC. and most importantly, the similarities are just in your head.

          • CT-12

            I can’t speak for Siren Charms since I didn’t like that album and haven’t listened enough to know, I guess more so speaking for “A Sense of Purpose” or “Come Clarity”. While I see what you mean, you can’t tell me this doesn’t have any pop sensibility to it, besides it being 10 minutes long (this is where I got the Coldplay relation). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwiQYgjEvy8

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I do not deny the pop sensibilities, although Coldplay would not be my weapon of choice

          • Solstafir has feels. Siren Charms has none.

          • CT-12

            The “feeling” of putting me to bed haha. No diss to you, just busting your balls.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Not everything has to be heavy, mate.
            #TheMoreYouKnow

          • CT-12

            Completely agreed man

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          Plebeian Grandstand, Thou, and Inter Arma all released fiyah this year.

          • EsusMoose

            I haven’t really been able to double tap albums lately but Inter arma deserved it.

        • Howard Dean

          *flush*

          Just kidding. Good shit, Moose/corgi!

        • just make sure you don’t miss Stargazer’s new album, it’s a stealthy little fvcker!

          • EsusMoose

            I’ll add it to my list, I always think people are talking about astronoid’s stargazer which is a post-black album that was released last year

        • Simon PhoenixKing

          Dammit I forgot Dust Moth came out this year.

          2015 has a lot to live up to.

          • Tyree

            Dammit indeed! That’s a great fucking EP!

          • EsusMoose

            It might not reach the glory of 2014 but it’s already looking pretty good

      • Edward #negrod4eva

        HD! The fourth album was Secret Cutter!

        • Stockhausen

          SECRET FRIGGIN’ CVTTER>>>>>>

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Stocky of my four album weekend queue you could take credit for two of them. I dunno if I will get through them all cause I wanna write / work lol. Hopefully they are short. That’s a victory lap there for you.

          • Stockhausen

            My dead heart is glowing. What was the other one? Secret Cutter is a pretty short, intensely heavy ride.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Short is good for this covert mission.

            Gnawed’s Feign & Cloak.

          • Stockhausen

            Yessss. Gnawed rules.

        • Howard Dean

          Byah! Glad you remembered!

        • there are no secret cutters. those teenage girls simply must show the rest of the world what they do behind closed doors.

    • Who put wovenwar?

      • every FFB contributor who doesn’t want to ruin their relationship with the band

      • EsusMoose

        Other places did, thankfully I made sure to not recognize godsmack(?) as music

        • Metaphysical Anus

          JJD would not agree with you on that.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Surprisingly

          • Metaphysical Anus

            He likes shitty music, so him liking godsmack is not a surprise.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            ‘Twas said with a sarcastic tone

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Sarcasm and internet don’t go well together.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I see that… now

          • yes he does. but we need this wide variety of tastes in the toilet! so we shall keep him… for now…

          • EsusMoose

            And I’d just slowly turn towards the camera with a single tear coming from my eye because of the tragedy

          • Stockhausen

            I would come up behind you, place my hands on your shoulders, and say “Stop making this Corgi cry. Do your part. Hate Godsmack. Call toll free now, 1-800-GODSMACKREALLYSUCKSANDISATERRIBLEBAND”

    • Metaphysical Anus

      At first I read “wovenhand” and I was ready to murder you.

      • STRANGER DANGER

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Just give me a hug! It’s okay, I’m an adult.

          • M Shadows!

            ADULT LOOFAHS ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS KIND THEY WILL VIOLATE AND CLEAN THE FUCK OUT OF YOU IN YOUR SLEEP! having trouble with loofahs? call M Shadows @ 1-800-robflynnsux and he will take care of it for you probably maybe!
