Another year full of great music, over 30 albums here that I really enjoyed... a few of which were my very favorites of 2014. First, here's everything that piqued my interest...albums I enjoyed over repeated listens. It was a big year for drone, shoegaze, and experimental music, as well as a big comeback year for cult acts like ExHxGx, Godflesh, and more.

"Saxophone motherfucker!" This could be all I have to say about this album. Merkabah (from Poland) create avant-garde metal, but I don't like to call it instrumental because the saxophone speaks...we just don't understand the language. Moloch is an open-minded metal fan's heaven as it cooks a meal out of genres like post-hardcore, progressive rock, and jazz all thrown in the metal cauldron. This music can put you on the defensive with its unrelenting assaults and simultaneously puzzle you out of your own skin, so blatant it is in its weirdness.
