Please do. Get ready for some heavy yet atmospheric doom with soothing female vocals and quite a lot of variety. Great album.

Some shit right up my alley. Check my list too for some other shit probably right up YOUR alley.

Nice list! There were indeed some albums that seemed interesting that I'll have to check out sometime.

I won't go into detail as to which albums I do agree with and which I don't agree with (when it comes to their ranking and scores), but I'm inclined to agree with Nasheim taking the #1 spot. Damn, there's just something about that album that keeps me going back to it. I'm pretty sure it's my most spun album from 2014 releases so far. Oi Magoi would be top 5 material as well at the very least though. Surprised it's at #15. Also agree with the ratings you gave the Thou and Shattered Hope albums. The first Shattered Hope album is truly great, so I was rather disappointed by the new album. Thou was somewhat interesting, but a way too long album for its own good and not replay worthy. Oh, and I recently discovered that Fungoid Stream album and I was pleasantly surprised for sure. Also just checked out Oceanus and it had the same effect on me. Wonderful music.

Seeing as our taste in music is pretty similar, I've heard a lot of these albums. I can still recommend quite a few, but if I narrow it down (to just my 9's) I'd highly recommend Spectral Lore - III. Massive album, that one, but I really liked it immediately. Just be sure to give it the time it deserves.

I'm definatively going to give Spectral Lore's latest a shot at some point when I'm in the right mood for such a lengthy album. As for Oi Magoi, I think it's a fun and enjoyable album overall but a bit too inconsistent to warrant a higher spot on the list.

Clouds, Doom:VS and Empyrium all so low? That's a shame because I really like the ranking aside from those 3 albums.

I agree with Nashaim, Ophis, Fungoid Stream and Spectral lore all being top 10 material.

Clouds take on melodic death/doom is way too cheesy for my taste and I just can't take it serious because of that. The second track is great though. Doom:VS latest was a huge disappointment for me as I was hoping for it to be in the vein of the first two albums but instead it ended up being a watered down Saturnus album. Lastly I can't even remember anything about Empyrium's album so there is that. I was never a huge fan of the band to begin with and find them to be quite overrated to be honest.
