2014 turned out to be one of the strongest years for metal in recent memory, making the compiling of this list something of a challenge. It seemed like a particularly strong year for black metal, which comprises half of my list.

I don't know if a grind band can really be considered prog/art metal, but if there's one band worthy of such consideration it's Gridlink. Featuring vocalist Jon Chang of the greatly missed New Jersey avant-grindsters Discordance Axis and Japanese tech-grind guitarist extrordinare Takafumi Matsubara, Gridlink's third and final album Longhena was recently released by Handshake Inc. It's a technical/avant-garde grind masterpiece that I predict people still be talking about in 15 years. Yeah, it's that good and has the potential to be that influential.
