Ali Zombie's Top 10 Albums of 2014

That's it, 2014's over, but it's given us some cracking albums to remember. From The Ghost Inside to Fearless Vampire Killers, 2014 has been the year of breakout concept albums - time to look back on my top 10 albums of the year.

10. Machine Head - Bloodstone and Diamonds
The thrash legends came back with another face-melter to rival The Blackening.

9. Memphis May Fire - Unconditional
This record changed metalcore as we know it, and long may it reign.

8. Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start A War
Chris Jericho and co. have done it again - wall-to-wall riffs and catchy lyrics.

7. The Ghost Inside - Dear Youth
A fantastic concept record that you'll still be plugging into for years to come.

6. Issues - Issues
Tyler Carter's R&B melodies collide beautifully with Michael Bohn's guttural screams.

5. Wovenwar - Wovenwar
The only way is up for the ex-As I Lay Dying and Oh, Sleeper lot.

4. Fearless Vampire Killers - Unbreakable Hearts
FVK have outdone themselves with this heavier extended concept album.

3. The Used - Imaginary Enemy
Politically-charged, hard-hitting and contemplative, The Used's 2014 offering heralded their new direction and it ruddy well suits them.

2. Architects - Lost Forever // Lost Together
This game-changing record was the best move Architects have ever made. Atmospheric heaviness ahoy, if you haven't jumped on this ship yet, now's your chance.

1. Set It Off - Duality
Who needs genres? Set It Off break free of every expectation and blast them out of the water with a versatile record worthy of the utmost respect.
