Matt’s Top 15 Albums of 2014!!!


tumblr_static_cm4blpgifnwo8wokk0wo4scscIt’s that time of year again for arbitrary lists of really great albums that were released since the last time I did one of these things.  Contributing to my absolute burnout of writing about kick ass metal bands, I can not think of another year where there were just so damn many stellar records released.  I simply had to say fuck it, step back, and enjoy the great stuff I already had.  Sure, I missed out on some great stuff, but on the other hand, all killer no filler.  To try to make up for the insane amount of great albums this year I’ve expanded my usual 10 to 15 and will have an honorable mentions post sometime in the near future.  I hope you find yourself something cool to listen to with this list or at least nod in agreement with some of my picks.  Thanks for reading, sticking with AMSOM, and being awesome and stuff.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!

The Good Kind of Ache


This weeks full album steam comes from The Atlas Moth and it’s their recently released An Ache for the Distance.  I’m quite taken by this album.  The sound is grandiose, doomish, psychedelic, and apocalyptic.  While the music will have you treading through the sludge with it’s slow brooding pace and southern riffing there are plenty moments of melody and light breaking through the darkened forest of sound.  If you find yourself enjoying bands such as Agalloch and Isis you really want to do yourself a favor and give this album a listen, and if you are not familiar with those bands, still give this one a show, heck, it’s free and a real good listen.  I am quite taken with it and am enjoying it more and more with each listen(I should have a review up sooner than later).  Click the album art to go to the stream.  Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
