Posted: December 8, 2014 in General, List of Grievances, Uncategorized

I tried so hard to whittle this down to ten, but I genuinely couldn’t remove anything from this list as they are all so essential. So here it is, the Killchain’s definite best black metal records of 2014, in no particular order:

1. Blut Aus Nord – Memoria Vestuta III: Saturnian Poetry

2. Mayhem – Esoteric Warfare

3. Winterfylleth – The Divination of Antiquity

4. Behemoth – The Satanist

5. Kvlthammer – Kvlthammer

6. Tombs – Savage Gold

7. Anaal Nathrakh – Desideratum

8. The Great Old Ones – Tekeli Li

9. Diocletian – Gesundrian

10. Varathron – The Untrodden Corridors of Hades

11. Sinmara – Aphotic Womb

12. Old Wainds – Nordraum

13. Mortuary Drape – Spiritual Independence

14. Goatwhore – Constricting Rage of the Merciless

15. Spectral Lore – III

16. Mare Cognitum – Phobos Monolith

17. Panopticon – Roads to the North

So there you have it, 17 black metal records you cannot afford to miss out on. There have been some other crackers too, and special mentions go to both Baalberith and Skiddaw for their respective releases this year too.
