You either love them or hate them, or couldn't give a shit either way, but as the year draws slowly to a close you know there'll be 'best of' lists cropping up everywhere. Well, we're no different here at the Lair, and we do like to celebrate our personal favorites of the year. So, this year we're kicking off things with my pick of the singles, EP's and demo's of 2014. We'll be adding Trevor's lists over the coming weeks, as well as my album choice, so just have fun with it! I've also included links to purchase physical copies of these phenomenal releases.

Zom - Flesh Assimilation (2014)
Invictus Productions (Europe)/Dark Descent Records (US)
Review by Trevor Proctor
Since the 2011 release of their demo cassette via Invictus Productions Zom have been creating rumbles in the catacombs of Ireland’s death metal underground. The demand for this demo was so great it was re-issued on vinyl during 2013 with a bonus track, Ethereal Frost. A second demo was released in 2012 and featured three tracks; one of which was Ethereal Frost and the other two were Multiversal Holocaust and Terror of the Cosmos – in turn these two tracks got re-released on a limited 7” vinyl, again due to immense demand for their music.
