Coolingsrock's 2014 Albums (Not For The Hearing Impaired)


***UPDATED REGULARLY*** My List of Albums that I've Listened to in 2014. Order: Best to Worst. I listened to all of these albums at least a minimum of 3 times. I do my best efforts to listen to as many different types of metal as I can. I may rate albums higher then some would, but that's my opinion and at least I'm supporting bands, not hating on them.(not going to give out 1's and 2's cause I know it's hard work to put together these albums, unless it's just white noise of course).

I prefer anything progressive,technical,thrash,death and core but I try to expand my tastes every day.
I also try to avoid most black,grind,sludge and drone metal as it doesn't ''usually'' float my boat. open to suggestions.

thanks for the tip....I only know the first 45 albums though. The rest is in alphabetical order. I pretty much just use it to keep in mind what albums to look out for. I suppose I could make another personal list to look out for. Thanks again
