Best Metal Albums of 2013

The Top Ten
1 13 - Black Sabbath 13 - Black Sabbath Product Image

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

2 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold Product Image

Wow this being number 1 is a joke.

1. This is one of their worst albums
2. They ripped off songs from other artists including Metallica, Megadeth Guns N Roses etc,
3. This isn't really a metal album more of a Hard Rock album
4. It's basically a ripoff of the Black Album by Metallica

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.

3 Surgical Steel - Carcass Surgical Steel - Carcass Product Image

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.

How the hell is Carcass below BMTH? They deserve to be way higher than those guys.

4 Halo of Blood - Children of Bodom Halo of Blood - Children of Bodom Product Image

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.

This is a comeback for the band.R.I. P Blooddrunk and Relentless Reckless Forever

5 Disarm the Descent - Killswitch Engage Disarm the Descent - Killswitch Engage Product Image

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.

6 Vengeance Falls - Trivium Vengeance Falls - Trivium Product Image

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.

Hail to the king is a good album seriously, but vengeance falls kick ass, they still the show in 2013

9 In the Minds of Evil - Deicide In the Minds of Evil - Deicide Product Image

Another epic production by Bring Me The Horizon..

Best album.. Is deep and it really rocks

The Contenders
11 Construct - Dark Tranquillity Construct - Dark Tranquillity Product Image
12 Infestissumam - Ghost Infestissumam - Ghost Product Image
13 Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine Product Image

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

14 Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies - Volbeat Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies - Volbeat Product Image
15 The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1 - Five Finger Death Punch The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1 - Five Finger Death Punch Product Image

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.

16 Fast Loud Death - Lost Society Fast Loud Death - Lost Society Product Image

Very good traditional metal.

18 The Dream Calls for Blood - Death Angel The Dream Calls for Blood - Death Angel Product Image
19 Device - Device Device - Device Product Image
20 ‎Infestissumam - Ghost BC ‎Infestissumam - Ghost BC Product Image

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.

21 The Paradigm Shift - Korn The Paradigm Shift - Korn Product Image

I loved the album

22 Unnatural Selection - Havok Unnatural Selection - Havok Product Image
23 Sunbather - Deafheaven Sunbather - Deafheaven Product Image

This album being metal is debatable, but what I've heard from it was quite good. And that cover is gorgeous.
