Slipknot's new release 5: The Gray Chapter has topped Revolver magazine's 2014 albums list.

The disc has beaten out At the Gates' At War With Reality and Restoring Force by Of Mice & Men, and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is thrilled.

He says, "It's totally an honour. There were some great albums that came out this year, so I'm ecstatic... After everything we've been through, for us to be able to come together and put together a record this strong, I'm really proud of us."

Also making the Revolver top five are Linkin Park's The Hunting Party and Reincarnate by Motionless in White.
