My Top 20 Of 2013

My top 20 albums released in 2013.
20Deafheaven
Sunbather


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.
19Nails
Abandon All Life


17 minutes of absolute, pure anger, in concentrated, crushing music.
18Burial
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.
15Sadistik
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
Volition


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.
12Obliteration
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
Old


"They want that old Danny Brown." Nah, give me some more of THIS Danny Brown.
10Gorguts
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.
7Bolzer
Aura


Oh my god. I could listen to this for days. Absolutely filthy and completely evil.
6Beastmilk
Climax


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
Hubardo


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
Pelagial


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.
1Ulcerate
Vermis


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.
