Donnie’s Mixtape of 2014

What grabbed Donnie by the throat this year!! Find out….

Remember the old C-90 mix tapes you used to do about twenty years ago. Terrible weren’t they?! The sound was awful if you could get your music system of choice to not chew the tape up in the first place that is. That said I heard many a new band first through this method and so in its dubious honour I will list my top tracks of 2014 that would fit neatly onto a C-90 cassette, well nearly anyway!!.  I feel the need to split each side of the cassette into a Blues/Rock/Heavy Metal side then on the reverse a Black/Death Metal side.
