METAL KAOZ Editors' Top10 Albums For 2014

METAL KAOZ Editors' Top10 Albums For 2014

Metal Kaoz Top 10 Albums for 2014

Creating top10 lists can give you an immediate sense of what's best during a certain period of time, and following this train of thought, music couldn't be an exception. Yeah, it may get a bit of cliché crafting end-of-the-year lists that, by the way, are starting lately to appear in every media earlier and earlier, but since the number of new albums is constantly increasing, the Press has to find a way to get things in order. On the other hand, we, the fans that is, we like to revisit our record collection to distinguish the most-listened albums and maybe get a closure for the year that is about to go down in history. In other words, this is a way to reset the mileage and start fresh for another music-filled year. So, once more, METAL KAOZ HQ managed to gather its editor's end of the year top10 lists and who knows? You may find something that slipped through the cracks or something that was lost under the HUGE pile of new releases.

Below you can find 2014's top10 for every editor of the proud METAL KAOZ crüe, and we hope you'll discover some new stuff that you'll enjoy as much as we did:
