    2014 Album of the Month Contenders

    by vikingbitch » Sat Oct 25, 2014 10:07 am

    November is about to rear its head which means the year end album lists are coming, which has been a tradition on our forum. In preparation for this I thought we could do a voting racket for albums that were released each month.

    Here is what I had in mind, will do posts of albums that were released each month this year up to end of October.

    Rank in order up to 3 of your favorite albums released from each month. Voting ends December 1st in which I will tally and determine top albums from each month, will also help people find albums that could have slipped through the cracks. If I missed any albums in the monthly release list that you think are deserving, say so and I will edit accordingly.

    How the point system will work:
    1) You will rank albums in order 1 to 3
    2) Album you rank as number one will receive 3 points, number 2 will receive 2 points and number 3 will receive 1 point.
    3) Top three albums of each month will be determined after December 1st.

    Hold tight as I tally the contender lists, lets get our lists on folks.

    Freedom Call - Beyond (not sure why this is listed in March, I got it in February)

    March:
    Noble Beast - Noble Beast
    Melodius Deite - Episode II: Voyage Through The World of Fantasy

    I already know the best releases for November: Triosphere, Primordial, Just Before Dawn and Centinex. four are strong contenders for the top five albums of the year. So far the hands down leader is Delain's The Human Contradiction, Antropomorphia's Rites ov Perversion is just as clearly on the number two spot. But the four coming releases could squeeze between those two amazing albums. :)

    Looks like November will be an awesome month on album releases. The new Triosphere album is excellent, Just Before Dawn's new effort is really good (even if it's not as good as their first album) and Bloodbath managed to exceed all expectations. And the first reviews on the Primordial album look like it's going to be a serious contender for album of the year.
    Might be impossible to narrow it down to a top three for November. A nice problem to have I guess.

    They're ok I guess, nothing against them or anything. The Mantle was a rather good album, but the next one was a huge letdown for me, so kinda dropped them off my radar.
    But even if their new album was good (I don't remember hearing it to be honest), there's no way it would've made it to my May list. Can't believe it being better than Epica, Hour of Penance or Xandria. :beerwink:

    Hopefully this will help with my year-end list. I can’t include any albums that I didn’t listen to but I assume I’d like, and I won’t count any re-issues or EPs or various artists compilations. So…

    January
    N/A – didn’t listen to a single album here

    February
    1) Babymetal, ‘Babymetal’ (BMD Fox)
    2) Exmortus, ‘Slave To the Sword’ (Prosthetic)
    3) Shrapnel, ‘The Virus Conspires’ (Candlelight)

    March
    1) Animals as Leaders - The Joy of Motion
    2) Destrage - Are You Kidding Me? No. (Metal Blade)

    April
    1) Insomnium - Shadows Of The Dying Sun (Century Media)
    2) Steel Panther - All You Can Eat (Open E)
    3) Triptykon - Melana Chasmata (Century Media)

    May
    1) Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere (Profound Lore)
    2) Prong - Ruining Lives (SPV)

    June
    1) Allegaeon - Elements of the Infinite (Metal Blade)
    2) Mastodon - Once More 'Round the Sun (Reprise)
    3) Septicflesh - Titan (Prosthetic)

    July
    1) Overkill - White Devil Armory

    August
    1) Alestorm - Sunset on the Golden Age (Napalm)
    2) Eluveitie - Origins (Nuclear Blast)

    September
    1) Iron Reagan - Tyranny of Will (Relapse)
    2) Xerath - III (Candlelight)

    October
    1) Anaal Nathrakh - Desideratum (Metal Blade)
    2) Devin Townsend - Z2 (Inside Out)
    3) Revocation - Deathless (Metal Blade)

    November
    1) Machine Head, ‘Bloodstone & Diamonds’

    December
    N/A

    All in all, October was the best month and I think a lot of you agreed on the quality of metal... I had to leave off At the Gates, Exodus, and Unearth which all might still make my final top 10. In March and May, those albums I listed won by default even if I didn't like 'em too much. Metal Blade wins as the label with my favorite releases. And I learned that I enjoyed Babymetal more than Behemoth (which didn't even make my list for Feb).
