Well...if the new Psychotic Waltz doesn´t come out in 2013, that´s the 2014 release I´m mostly looking forward to.

I loved Vanden Plas' last album, myself.
 
The lyrics were a bit cheesy on the content side, but the music was awesome.

I didn't really wait for it, but if I knew it was going to be that good, I'd certainly wait for the new Behemoth. Their best, easily. I have never been a fan but I may become one now.

Didn't know about Toxik or Mekong Delta and forgot about Sanctuary.

Thanks for the heads-up, all three will be on my purchase list! Thumbs Up

Tool--(Not even sure if it'll be 2014 at this point, but hey.)
Animals as Leaders--(Not sure if it's been named.)
Cynic--Kindly Bent to Free Us (I'm more curious about this one, since the two tracks on Youtube haven't really impressed me. Maybe the rest will be different. Tongue)
Mastodon--(Not sure if it's been named.)
And I think Opeth and Beardfish are working on albums, though they probably won't be out this year.

I've only gotten 6 2014 releases so far.

Alcest - Shelter (3.5/5)
Iced Earth - Plagues Of Babylon (3.5/5)
Within Temptation - Hydra (4/5)
Vanden Plas - Chronicles pt.1 (4/5)
Vanishing Point - Distant Is The Sun (4/5)
Sonata Arctica - Pariah's Child (3/5 based on one listen so far)


Nothing that just bowls me over but still, some solid releases so far.

The most disappointing being SA. They promised a return to their earlier style, and the first song on the album delivered. The rest...well, there are some good songs in there, but more like their progressive Unia/Days Of Grey era stuff, and 2 songs that are stinkers, but overall it's not bad...

Is the Alcest album metal at all?  I had heard they were moving completely away from black metal

Nothing I've heard from it is even remotely metal.
