got-djent.com's editors' picks of 2014: part 1

18




Which are the best djent releases of 2014?



The got-djent.com moderation team goes through a lot of music in a year. Last year, we concluded our "favourite albums of 2013" series of posts with a number of editors' picks: releases that we felt didn't get the attention they deserve. We are once again continuing this tradition for 2014.

The got-djent.com moderators are pitching a couple of albums to you that they feel are worth hearing, but didn't make the 'favourite releases of 2014' list. Contrary to our poll, which was based on site users' votes, the list presented below is based on the opinions of individual got-djent.com staff members, and it is important to be aware that it does not represent the opinion of got-djent.com as a whole. Since it is one of our main goals to be a neutral community platform, we feel that this disclaimer is appropriate and indeed necessary.

Our picks will be split across two posts. Today, we're publishing part 1, with recommendations for 8 albums, as well as streaming, downloading and purchasing options where applicable. If a free download link is provided, that means the album was released for free by the artist(s). All free downloads are 100% legal.

More recommendations are coming in part 2! Stay tuned!
