    The two main 2014 releases I haven't gotten yet are Apostle of Solitude and Doomocracy

    Top albums:
    Grave Digger - Return of the Reaper
    Riot V - Unleash the Fire
    Medieval Steel - Dark Castle
    Below - Across the Dark River

    Growers:
    BlackFinger - ST
    The Skull - For Those Which Are Asleep

    Singles:
    The Skull - Sometime Yesterday Mourning
    MetalUSAfer - Heavy Metal Hammer 7"
    (I can get passed the absurd lyrics due to the speed and intensity of the tunes. Was even better live)




    Disappointments:
    High Spirits - You Are Here
    ( I know this will get boo's from this crowd but it's really weak and seems to lack energy. I listened to it again today in fact as I was thinking of this thread)
    Unisonic - For the Kingdom EP
    (Didn't have the groove I felt from the debut full length. Didn't make me want to seek out the 2nd full length. Something I might pick up used if I see it)

    I guess it depends what you like. I thought the first album was dull. The new EP got me motivated to listen to the new album, which is fantastic.

    I have the new Apostle of Solitude on the way.

    MetalUSAfer is supposed to be the chessiest of cheese lyrics, its Metalucifer worship. So its not absurd lyrics.

    I always laugh when Jason bitches about cheesy lyrics when one his favorites is Manowar.

    First off Manowar isn't one of my fav bands at all.
    But yes I do like them a lot.
    Tho there are a lot of bands who can get away with things as innovators as opposed to followers.
    Sorry. Deal with it.

    Ok. I might get the AoS from you.
    Haven't priced it around.

    Yeah. I know the purpose of MetalUSAfer.
    I was clarifying that usually I don't care for those type of lyrics but the music itself is great and was a blast live.
    (In general I like that style better live, IE - skull fist)

    Don't care if you don't agree.

    I liked the first one because it was a very easy to listen to hard rock album.
    Yeah. I know the Pat's of the world like the newer stuff that was obviously written with more input from Kai. I am not saying it is bad. I still may get the full length sometime. Just found the EP to be what you would generically expect from the players as opposed to the first one which was something a bit different (well. I guess not so much different for Kiske in recent years)

    WTF you talking about????
    Just stating I don't give a rats ass if someone doesn't agree with me.

    If we all agreed what would be the point in doing the thread?

    I don't care if you don't like it or not. It's more the tone you've had today that has made you come off super angry, and I figured I'd just poke some more fun at you in jest. Dude, relax.

    Though I never listened to the EP, I had the same reactions to the full-lengths. The second one is a big improvement over the debut, though it's not quite good enough to make my best of 2014 list.

    I concur with your assessment on the High Spirits. That one put me in low spirits.
