|Music of 2013|
This is a list of the albums I enjoyed the most from 2013. This list is in no particular order.
This is an Album that is full of complex song writing, virtuosity, and plenty of technique. The album also flows very nicely from one song to the next. Pelagial is one of the best Progressive albums to come out in quite some time.
The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight...
A good mix of Alt Rock and Country.
Sludgy, Progressive and full of heavy riffs.
A great follow up to their Grammy winning album entitled The Suburbs. This album includes quite a bit of interesting stuff.
Modern Vampires of the City
A fun Album to listen to.
Death By Fire
Enforcer is one of the bright young bands reviving old school Metal.
A great album by Foals. "Unhealer" "Bad Habit" and "My Number" are some of the best singles to come out in 2013.
This is their first album since 1987 and they show no signs of rust. They are one of the more underrated NWOBHM bands.
The Album is Very laid back and has a lot of cool passages on it.
Though I'm Alone
This album is full of emotion and atmosphere. It is probably my favorite Hardcore album to come out 2013.
Voivod is a band that has been around for years and show no signs of slowing down. Even without Piggy they are able to still make amazing music.
This album is as heavy as they come. Includes some of the best Drumming I have ever heard.
The Mystery Of Time
With one of the more theatrical albums to come out in 2013 Avantasia have created yet another great Power Metal album.
The Underground Resistance
Darkthrone is known as one of the elite bands of the Norwegian Black Metal movement. On this album Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have moved away from their old Black Metal sound and gone a little more Traditional. I was a big fan of them in their Black Metal days but I cannot say this change has upset me. I believe they have made one of the best Traditional Heavy Metal albums I have ever heard.
The Eldritch Dark
This album contains a lot of really cool old school Blues/Rock elements.
This is their first album since 1995. Carcass has come back to prove after all these years they are still one of the better Death Metal bands out there.
Abandon All Life
17 minuets of some of the most chaotic sounding music I have ever heard.
Shaking the Habitual
Probably my favorite Electronic album of 2013.
Yet another great album by Ihsahn.
|29||The Ruins Of Beverast|
Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospels of Heinrich...
Possibly the darkest and most hellish sounding album of 2013.
|28||Alice In Chains|
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
A lot of Cool Riffs on this album. Alice In Chains continue to make great albums after more than 20 years of being a band.
The Formulas of Death
A very strong sophomore album by a bright young Swedish band. This album has a very nice combination of Blackened Death Metal and Prog Rock.
After all these years Black Sabbath haven't forgotten how to make a good album.
I have never been a huge fan of American folk or country. But I love Bill Callahan and I love this Album.
Deceiver of the Gods
Amon Amarth continues to remain one of the top Melodeath bands in the world.
In Solitude Takes Traditional Rock/Metal and adds their own twist to it.
This is an incredibly emotional instrumental Neofolk album.
|21||Scale The Summit|
An awesome Instrumental prog album.
|20||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
One of Us Is The Killer
D.E.P have made yet another great album with One of Us is the Killer.
|19||Heaven Shall Burn|
This album is perhaps Heaven Shall Burn's strongest to date. This album has become one of my favorite Melodic Death Metal albums of all time.
Along with amazing songwriting and good production this album features some of the best sounding Keyboards I have ever heard.
An incredibly dark, heavy and epic album.
ASG is one of my favorite Stoner Rock Bands. This album was one of the many gems to come out in the summer of 2013.
When The Night
This album includes everything I loved about 1980's pop music while excluding Everything I hated about 1980's pop music.
Trouble Will Find Me
This is my favorite Indie album of 2013. The National is one of those bands that impress me with every album they make.
A really cool Hardcore album full of awesome cords and one of the best hardcore Vocalists out there.
One of the Strongest debuts I have heard in a while for the Metal Genre.
The Silver Gymnasium
An album full of great songs.
This is an excellent instrumental album.
Runaljod - Yggdrasil
2013 was the year I started listening to more Neofolk. This album is so far my favorite in the genre.
Great album. TesseracT have become one of the better Prog Metal bands of the 2010's.
A really Cool album with a really cool atmosphere.
These guys are one of my favorite Folk Metal bands. This is yet another strong album of theirs.
The Bones of What You Believe
A pretty cool Synthpop album with lots of fun and Catchy songs.
Days Are Gone
A really fun Pop album. I was not expecting to enjoy this album as much as I did. This album has some of the catchiest pop songs I have ever heard.
Loud City Song
One of the more creative albums to come out in 2013. This album has a very unique atmosphere to it which is unlike anything I have heard before.
|2||Queens of the Stone Age|
Of all of the Albums this band has made this one is by far my favorite. Songs like "I appear Missing" and "My God is the Sun" are some of the greatest rock songs I have ever heard.
This was probably my favorite album of the year. They only album that I came close to liking more than this was ...Like Clockwork. This album has an intense emotional feel to it that is relentless throughout the album. Sunbather also has some of the best musicianship of any album to come out in 2013. It is one of the best and most unique albums to come out in quite a while if you ask me.
