musicians best of 2014 group 5Every year, MetalSucks asks musicians from across the vast spectrum of the metalsphere (or, in a few cases, the almost-metalsphere) what their favorite albums of the year have been. Death metallers, thrash metallers, black metallers, stoners, grinders, and djenters alike graciously contributed lists to MS, and we’ll be running them in small groups throughout the week.

Below, check out the fifth batch… we hope you enjoy seeing what some of metal’s heaviest hitters were into this year as much as we have!
