Chuck's Top 15 Of 2013

So 2013 is two and a half hours from being over and I'm finally getting to this list. All together 2013 has been a great year for music. It's been a pretty cool year for me too, I've graduated high school, started college, and moved halfway across the country all in this year. This year I'm only including albums that currently have a rating of 4.5 or higher and it just happened to be 15 instead of some weird number. Anyway, here's my Top 15, loosely ranked.
15The Arisrocrats
Culture Clash

You know that Guthrie Govan is the best guitarist living right?
14Scale the Summit
The Migration

Scale the Summit at their best.

A new side to death metal.
12Modern Day Babylon

An instrumental metal album that actually hits me emotionally. Incredible m
The Living Infinite

A double disc, 84 minute experience that keeps me interested the whole time? You bet it's deserving
of its place.
The Mountain

Combining prog metal with the eccentricities of 70's prog and genuine emotion make for a fantastic
Colored Sands

It's Gorguts, what else is there to say?
8Means End
The Didact

The Didact legitimately sounds like music from the future. If the elitists can look past the use of 8
string guitars and djent riffs, they will find an extremely dense and experimental metal album that
supplies the listener with as much jazz fusion as it does metal.
7Night Verses
Lift Your Existence

Riffs. Catchiness. Intensity. Emotion. Experimentation.

Despite the black metal stylings and breakneck speed, Sunbather is easily one of the most
emotional and touching albums of the year.

Erra take the same formula used on Impulse and further refine it, and themselves to make one of
the best and most creative metal albums this year.
4August Burns Red
Rescue and Restore

Despite not being a Christian "Beauty in Tragedy" still gives me chills.
3Steven Wilson
The Raven that Refused to Sing

Steven Wilson's genius plus the best backing musicians he has worked with to date make a startling
good prog album.
2The Dillinger Escape Plan
One of Us is the Killer

Not many share this sentiment but this is DEP's best album in my eyes.
1Misery Signals
Absent Light

"Everything Will Rust" alone makes this album a 4.5.
