My Top 20 Of 2013

My top 20 albums released in 2013.

As a fan of Roads to Judah, I was interested to see where Deafheaven would go next. Sunbather is an improvement on the group's debut, and is a beautiful album.
Abandon All Life

17 minutes of absolute, pure anger, in concentrated, crushing music.
Rival Dealer

Burial explores interesting new ideas on this EP, to great success.
17The Ruins of Beverast
Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospels of Heinrich...

Alexander von Meilenwald takes us deeper and heavier, continuing with the cleaner production style he used on his previous album. While that album didn't succeed to the degree Rain Upon the Impure did, Blood Vaults gets it right.
16Steven Wilson
The Raven that Refused to Sing

Steven Wilson's songwriting has improved vastly, and that should be enough for fans of his other works to give this a listen and to enjoy it.
Flowers for my Father

Sadistik gives us a raw look into his heart, and crafts a beautiful tribute to Eyedea in the process.
14Protest the Hero

I ended up liking Volition a hell of a lot more than I was expecting to going in, it's probably my most listened to album of 2013.
13 Gris
A l'ame Enflammee, l'ame Constellee

This album is a moving, utterly emotional experience. I can't really do it justice in this small text box. Just listen to it.
Black Death Horizon

Bringing us crushing riffs, destructive drums, and vocals a la Martin Van Drunen (dare I say better?), Obliteration gives us one of the best old-school death metal albums in recent years.
11Danny Brown

"They want that old Danny Brown." Nah, give me some more of THIS Danny Brown.
Colored Sands

Gorguts come back, with a vastly changed lineup, but Luc Lemay clearly hasn't missed a beat. Props to Hufnagel, Longstreth, and Marston for giving this album their all.
9Justin Timberlake
The 20/20 Experience

Who'd have thought JT had it in him? HUGE props to the man for making it rich early in his career and continuing to take himself and his music very seriously, the dud that Part 2 is notwithstanding.
8Wakusei Abnormal
Nandemonai Kyoki

A very interesting debut from this Japanese band that mixes elements of psychedelic and noise pop. Definitely one of my top recommendations of this year.

Oh my god. I could listen to this for days. Absolutely filthy and completely evil.

Reminiscent of the post-punk titans of the days of yore, Beastmilk bring us their own brand of "apocalyptic death-rock." Two thumbs up from this listener.
5White Moth Black Butterfly
One Thousand Wings

This guy's voice is absolutely something else, and over these backdrops? A+.
4Kayo Dot

Toby Driver's back with a vengeance. Hubardo is the band's best work since Choirs of the Eye, and might even surpass it.
3Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels

Killer Mike and El-P, fuckboys think about it.
2The Ocean

A long journey to the ocean's depths, but an interesting journey through all the different styles Robin Staps and co. are capable of playing, and all executed masterfully.

Ever listened to an album so good you had to pause it in the middle just to get a glass of water cause you thought you were going to throw up? I have the limited gold 2xLP, and I'm severely tempted to get the red 2xlp repress, the black 2xlp first pressing, AND a cd of it, that's how much I love this album. Ulcerate's best effort so far, and it's got me absolutely hype for the band's future.
