Top 10 Best Metal Albums of 20132013 was a year filled with incredible releases in the metal genre. From established bands delivering some of their best work to up-and-coming acts making their mark, there was no shortage of headbanging goodness.
These albums showcase the diverse range of sounds and styles within the metal genre, from the most brutal and uncompromising to the most melodic and emotive. Whether you're a fan of classic heavy metal, death metal, black metal, thrash metal, or any of the many sub-genres within the world of metal, there's something here for you.
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!
I hate Avenged Sevenfold, but I love Black Sabbath. Best metal band of all time, and a great album
Are you kidding me.. Has anyone heard age of reason, end of begging and all
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.
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.
How to heck is Surgical Steel 13th? This album is WAY better than Hail to the King.
After 17 years, Carcass came back with a bang. This one of my favorite albums of this year no doubt
This needs to get up above Bring Me the Horizon. Carcass is WAY better.
They haven't moved up? I'm surprised.
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.
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.
Best album.. Is deep and it really rocks
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 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.
This album is trash
Very good traditional metal.
This is such a great album. What's better about it as well is that it's not just the same regurgitated music like most of the other albums on here.
One of the best bands of today.
I loved the album
This album being metal is debatable, but what I've heard from it was quite good. And that cover is gorgeous.
