2013 So Far For Me

Heard some pretty good stuff so far, but I have yet to really dive into it, and i'd appreciate any recs. I don't particularly care what genre it is, so long as it was released this year
1Wormed
Exodromos


Probably my favorite album so far this year. The riffs go hard, and the vocals are godly. I know many will disagree with this, but this is a unique band, and this album blends a lot of my favorable qualities in music.
2Darkthrone
The Underground Resistance


Before the Wormed album, this was going to be my most favorite, but it still comes close. This has probably got to be my most favorite modern DT album. It has a real "classic" heavy metal vibe to it, and the vocals are to die for.
3Abyssal
Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius


I know this one isn't favored too much on sputnik, but I for one enjoy the relaxing nature of this album. It's really simple, really straight forward, really accessible. It's essentially an easy listening blackened death album.
4Voivod
Target Earth


One of my first 2013 albums, it took quite some time to grow on me. I know this isn't the best the band can do, and I havn't really looked at their earlier stuff (will definitely get to that soon) so as far as understanding the band's evolution goes, I can't really get the real Voivod experience yet. So as far as i'm concerned, this is just an album that sounds really solid, though it will take time to grow on people.
5Aether Realm
One Chosen By The Gods


An excellent viking metal album, with quite a few folk influences tossed into this heavy mix. Again, really easy listening, good for just about time of the day.
6Holy Grail
Ride the Void


A cross between Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Ride the Void is a beautiful reincarnation of the classic heavy metal genre, marred only by soggy guitars, and (at times) dull vocals.
7Suffocation
Pinnacle of Bedlam


After hearing the first single off this, I really did expect this one to blow. But I was pleasantly surprised after hearing the full album stream to see just how well this album flows, and exciting it can actually get at times. The vocals are a shadow of their former glory though, and drums are way overproduced (like most death metal these days), but this still earns its place in the top 10 thus far.
8Bisento
Hinterlands


Pretty surreal doom metal outfit. Their first album is an impressionable one, with outstanding production, but musicianship that gets a bit repetitive, and the vocals could be better.
9Soilwork
The Living Infinite


A double album, this band makes quite a solid, and tall standing album that could reach out to many fans of the melo death genre. In my personal opinion, the second half goes a lot more in depth in terms of musicianship, and it easily the better side of this coin. The first half was decent, but the clean sections got really old really quick.
10Universe217
Never


A female fronted doom band, they did just about everything right here, and it was an enjoyable the first time. It may be that I need more exposure to this album, but my main problem with it is that it lacks anything truly memorable. The album basically goes in one ear and out the other.
