Best of 2014

As always, the top albums of the year are for full albums (no EP’s or demos) released in 2014. They also have to be new studio albums for the year, not re-recordings, re-releases, cover songs, or live material. Below the combined TOP 30 are links to each individual staff members personal “best of” lists which besides their top albums contains such things as best new band, best DVD/Blu-Ray, best metal book, disappointments of the year, greatest hopes for next year, personal metal discovery of the year, and various other categories. Enjoy!

The Top 30 Heavy Metal Albums of 2014

1. Accept – Blind Rage

Accept - Blind Rage

Accept – Blind Rage




It’s no secret, loves Accept. In 2010 we voted Accept’s comeback album, BLOOD OF THE NATIONS as the #1 album of the year. Then in 2012, the album STALINGRAD was voted to #3. Now in 2014, the third album since their comeback, BLIND RAGE, is voted to #1.

Accept’s Wolf Hoffmann commented on their placement: “This is fantastic news!  2014 has been an amazing year for Accept and this now comes as a nice surprise at the beginning of 2015! 🙂  We could not be happier with the reception for ‘Blind Rage’ – it’s a huge honor to be voted Number One.  Thanks to and of course a very special thanks to our fan community worldwide!!  I hope to see you again soon…
