The Top Ten

Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold
I really love Bullet For My Valentine's Temper Temper, but a7x is my favorite and I really believe Hail to the King is going to be the best.
I can't wait for this album. The previews that they've played sound awesome.


At the top of the list right where they should be this is the best band in the world not 1 bad record or song Hail to the King is best album ever!

213 - Black Sabbath
How is this not number 1?! This is clearly the best album of 2013. Ozzy's return to Black Sabbath, and Black sabbath's return to its roots; the dark riffs, awesome solos and mind twisting lyrics are back!
Are you kidding me.. Has anyone heard age of reason, end of begging and all
Black Sabbath is back m/


3Halo of Blood - Children of Bodom
One of the best albums from the band. Easily. Contains all the elements of what made them famous and has NOT ONE SINGLE embarrassing moment throughout. It's a mature, classy and powerful release by this skilled quintet.

4Everblack - The Black Dahlia Murder
This is the shizz!

5Disarm the Descent - Killswitch Engage
Wee I'm glad to see the mistakes have been fixed :). Well anyway, if you're a metalcore fan or a longtime KsE fan, you'll love this album. Jessie's vocals have improved A LOT since Alive or Just Breathing. He also does really well on the live version of My Curse. The guitar work is outstanding and Justin's drumming is awesome. Give it a listen if you haven't already.


Deserves be more higher... It's a great album... First or Second at least... and Jesse Leach is back!


This should read Killswitch Engage. My mistake.


6Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine
This album is awesome. Don't understand why people didn't like it. Songs like Breaking Point and Tears Don't Fall, Pt. 2 are awesome.


7Vengeance Falls - Trivium
A7X and Trivium are my 2 favorite bands and I've Ben wanting to hear new material since In Waves. Knowing them, this albums going to kick serious ass.

8Construct - Dark Tranquillity

9Sempiternal - Bring Me the Horizon
Another epic production by Bring Me The Horizon..
Best album.. Is deep and it really rocks

10The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1 - Five Finger Death Punch
Lift Me Up is an awesome song. The song previews they put up on their YouTube channel sound amazing as well.


After giving it a listen, I can't help but love t! Turned out to be an awesome album.


This impressive and unbeleivable album is not in the proper spot number 1 is 5fdps right

The Contenders

11Surgical Steel - Carcass
After 17 years, Carcass came back with a bang. This one of my favorite albums of this year no doubt


Carcass! Carcass! Carcass! CARCASS! Surgical Steel is too good to not be in the top 10!
How to heck is Surgical Steel 13th? This album is WAY better than Hail to the King.
