In an effort to cover all the great recordings that came out in 2014, I've separated out the EPs from the full length recordings. To define what albums are EPs, I look at the total length of the album and the amount of songs. If the album is under 30 minutes and contains less than seven songs, I call it an EP. For example, Reign in Blood by Slayer is under 30 minutes but there are 10 songs, so I would not call it an EP. But these are my random rules, so whatever, here is my list:

Ear-maggots anyone? Standard issue ear-worms for the fans of experimental music.

Light Through A Dead Glass is Epitasis' second EP and in describing it, the term "sheer brilliance" is more or less an understatement. As unsettling and chaotic it may seem, Epitasis managed to reincarnate the essence of primitive black metal with some spectacular riffs and melodic interludes. While the ambient passages offer the listener a break from the madness, you're in for a rude awakening every time they are interrupted by a desolating riff or a haunting shriek.
