    Let’s keep this simple… which 5 albums are most likely to land in your end of year lists? No need to list them order. Just your Top 5 2014 releases as of right now.

    Not your Top 8, because you couldn’t really narrow it down.

    Not your Top 25, because you lacked the brain space to pick just 5.

    And in the case of Fire Breath, not your Top 600 Symphonic Power Metal Albums Fronted by Female Singers Born on the Island of Guam. :loco:

    For me…

    Behemoth – The Satanist
    Darkest Era - Severance
    Dynazty – Renatus
    Junius – Days of the Fallen Sun
    Mastodon – Once More ‘Round the Sun

    Epica, Moonkings, Need, Delain, and H.e.a.t.. This is considering Need's Orvam as a 2014 release....if not, I'm thinking the latest Appearance of Nothing.

    Not sure much is going to shake this. The new Evergrey and Scar Symmetry seemed like the ones with the best chances. After about 10 listens, the Evergrey is unlikely to push any of these out.
