Top 20 albums of 2014

Great year, especially when it comes to melodic stuff. So glad that At the Gates and Empyrium delivered something solid. Even happier that Vanhelga really has become a "Lifelover 2", only darker. Although I am dissapointed that Deathstars didn't release a #1 album.

1. Harakiri For The Sky - Aokigahara
2. Twilight Force - Tales Of Ancient Prophecies
3. Saor - Aura
4. Mors Principium Est - Dawn Of The 5th Era
5. Anaal Nathrakh - Desideratum

My Maiden hangover - songs I'd gladely see Iron Maiden skip during their live shows

What's a Maiden hangover? You know a regular hangover, right? It's really bad, your head hurts and you feel ill. You know you still love beer, but you don't want it for a while. That's how I've felt about some Iron Maiden songs for a couple of years now. I've seen Maiden six times since 2005, and that's not even during the same tours. Still I feel like they play the same couple of songs over and over again. I can understand why, being a huge band with some monumental metal classics. But a little variety, please! I went to a show last night and thought during it "it's enough now". One of the best things about seeing the same bands over and over again, is to witness them play different songs. One that I haven't already experienced live. But this never happens with Maiden, we get like 1-2 songs they haven't played in a while. And its not just witnessing the same songs over and over again, it's the fucking same coreography during them too!

1. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
2. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
3. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
4. Iron Maiden - Killers
5. Iron Maiden - Killers
