|Amphoteric's Top 50 Albums Of 2013|
Echoes of Battle
Caladan Brood came out of nowhere with this and successfully out-summoned Summoning, which is a pretty amazing
accomplishment. Probably my album of the decade so far. Yes, I love it that much.

Would have easily been my AOTY if it wasn't for Caladan Brood. The two are so close though that they might as well be tied.
Black Clouds Gathering
Powerful, melodic, soaring tremolo riffs strewn throughout.. black metal isn't usually known for having a more uplifting sound, but
that's just what this achieves. There's really not much to dislike about this one, still deserves a ton more ratings so if you like
black metal and you haven't heard this, you should give it a shot.
This is one excellende album... (thanks Key!)
My favorite post-black metal record I've heard in a long time. If you're a fan of bands like Woods of Desolation or Ecailles de
give this a shot.
Sludgy, hard-hitting, and atmospheric with a ton of great riffs; it's just everything I could really want from a metal album.
A lame Enflammee, lame Constellee
Powerful album, not in terms of heaviness but it just evokes such a strong emotional response. Everything from the musicianship
to the production is top notch, and Icare's vocals are some of the best black metal vocals I've heard in a while.
One of the rare instances for me that tons of technicality actually helps improve songs rather than detract. Easily one of my
favorite death metal releases in recent years.

|Noo where did BoC go? :(|
|Fuckin sweet dude, you know at least half of these will make my list haha|
Anything with an apostrophe RIP's when you edit
|Well that sucks, at least Old Mornings Dawn doesn't have an apostrophe in there lol|
|Yeah that one is great, really deserves a lot more than just 6 ratings.|
I haven't heard it, should probably get on that.
|Yeah it's top 5 dm for sure man|
|We both have BOC at 2! Thought Jon Hopkins would be higher for ya |
|Fuck yeah, 12 and 46 m/|
|great list man, nice to see 1,3,4,5 and 6 here|
I probably didn't give that one as much attention as I should have, but it just didn't seem to stick that well after 3 or 4 listens. Still a good album though.
|Dammit I just realized I forgot to add the Mare Cognitum/Spectral Lore split "Sol", should be on here easily.|
|Where's the featch|
|Haha idk man, have you heard Sol though? You'd probably dig it if you haven't.|
|No I haven't, there's a few I haven't checked out here that I need to get on asap|
|I would slot it at 20 on this list, don't know how I forgot about it. Great ambient/atmospheric spacey black metal. I've still got a few I need to check as well like Zealotry and Celeste.|
|Oh those 2 are sweet...Zealotry especially. It's in my top 3 dm|
