Nomination, hand picking and assembly of this summary has been time consuming enough if I wasn't also supposed
to write a synopsis for every entry. It's a darned pity I haven't written about these swell recordings in English.
All links are altered from pointing to a review to the best available stream I could find.
The order within each section is relatively random, but the top is likely to be somewhat stronger than the bottom.
Part I: Best Debutants
Some of 2014's most pleasant surprises from the scene newcomers.
Artists may be old veterans, but the constellations are relatively fresh.
Part II: Best releases from relatively fresh and partly unknown artists.
This is typically bands that now have a few albums to show for.
Some of them have started to make themselves a name in the underground. They all deserve that.
Part III: Best releases from reasonably well known artists.
These bands have a bit longer experience than those above, although not all names are renowned.
The bands mostly have good name in the underground, but haven't climbed to the top quite yet.
Runner-ups, or other nominated candidates:
Part IV: Best releases from established bands.
It took a while to sort out my favourites among releases of the most notorious habitual criminals.
Some are “veterans” without being particularly famous, others are notorious without long experience. Enjoy!
