The highest-selling albums and EPs in the United States are ranked in the Billboard 200, which is published by Billboard magazine. The data are compiled by Nielsen Soundscan based on each album's weekly physical and digital sales. In 2014, a total of 33 albums claimed the top position of the chart. One of which, American R&B singer Beyoncé's self-titled visual album started its peak in late 2013.
And the best metal album of 2014 goes to Behemoth's 'The Satanist. The disc is a masterpiece from beginning to end, with absolutely no filler to be skipped over. The opening track, 'Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel,' has even become a new battle cry for fans on top of being a phenomenal song, capturing the imagination of metalheads in 2014. As metal gets heavier, it becomes more difficult to create a truly evil sounding album, but 'The Satanist' is straight from hell, raising goosebumps up until its brilliant finale, 'O Father O Satan O Sun!'.
Ultimately, the best part of Sun is Mastodon's ability to make hooky and visceral music without sacrificing either their metallic muscle or their innate weirdness. The seventh album from Oregon doom metal sky-gazers Yob - a mere four tracks that just eke just past the hour mark - makes perfect bedfellows of volume and beauty, pain and transcendence.
