5.0 classic
Chimaira Chimaira
Coldplay A Rush of Blood to the Head
Converge Jane Doe
Defeater Empty Days and Sleepless Nights
Defeater crush any doubts that they couldn't top their debut LP, Travels, with the release of Empty Days & Sleepless Nights. The hardcore tracks bleed with aggression and emotion, and the acoustic tracks are tastefully done. The result is Defeater's most superb work to date and an instantly memorable album.
Deftones White Pony
Drowning Pool Sinner
Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP
Fear Factory Demanufacture
Glassjaw Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence
Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction
Incubus Make Yourself
Jerry Goldsmith Alien
Korn Korn
Limp Bizkit Gold Cobra
This is obviously an instant classic (no joke). Plus, Fred isnt as annoying with his vocals as he used to be,
save for a few tracks. Wes Borland is a boss. Fred might be absolutely terrible in Autotunage, but that main
riff is killer.

Senses Fail Renacer
If The Fire showed Senses Fail hinting at the aggressive side in their sound, Renacer shows the band
fully embracing it. This album is relentless, with the riffs hitting hard and Buddy's vocal performance being his
most intense and ethereal to date. His screams have never sounded better, and the vocal melodies are very
well placed. The lineup changes have steered the band more in the direction of a hardcore sound, and it
proves to be a welcome change on what just might be the best album of their career.

Coldplay Mylo Xyloto
Coldplay Ghost Stories
It turns out being their best since A Rush Of Blood To The Head. The songs all have a stripped back feel that hasn't been felt since their early work, being a welcome aspect following the huge arena rock of Mylo Xyloto. "O" is one of their best album closers ever. Incredible stuff.
Converge Axe to Fall
This record is fucking incredible. The title track is sheer brutality at its finest.
Converge No Heroes
Converge You Fail Me

Wow, I've never listened to a more relaxing and beautiful album in my life.
Drowning Pool Drowning Pool
Elliot Goldenthal Alien 3
Evanescence Fallen
Fear Factory The Industrialist
Fear Factory have crafted one of the best albums in their discography and their most industrial album to date. Fulber was given so much room to flourish this time around, and the programmed drums thankfully don't take away from how brutal the album sounds. Oh, and the riffs are ridiculously heavy.
Fort Minor The Rising Tied

Killswitch Engage Alive or Just Breathing

Lamb of God As the Palaces Burn
This grew on me so much lately. Quite possibly their best work to date.
Lamb of God Resolution
Upon hearing a proper mix of this album I can safely say that this is the best Lamb of God album since Palaces and Ashes. "Straight For The Sun", "Cheated", and "King Me" are just ridiculously good. This is possibly their most diverse and heaviest record to date.

After the Burial show no signs of slowing down in the wake of Justin Lowe's death on Dig Deep, an album packed with furious 8 string riffs. Collapse and Mire are among the heaviest tracks this band has written to date.

August Burns Red Constellations
August Burns Red Sleddin' Hill
August Burns Red Rescue & Restore
With a great change in production, improved songwriting and successful experimentation everywhere, Rescue & Restore is the album that Leveler was trying to be, only this time the band accomplished what they set out to do a hell of a lot better. This is among the the best metalcore of 2013 and one of their best outings.

Bad Meets Evil Hell: The Sequel
Beartooth Disgusting
Caleb pulls a Jonathan Davis on the last track, "Sick and Disgusting". The only difference is, the result actually is an emotional and intense track. Disgusting is a fantastic album with lots of energy, and proves that Beartooth are a band with serious potential.

Cannibal Corpse Torture
Torture proves that Cannibal Corpse can still belt out some awesome death metal despite how far they are into their career. All 5 members are in top form here and Alex Websters basslines are thankfully audible most of the time, which I appreciate because he is extremely talented. The bass solo in "The Strangulation Chair" is awesome.

Fear Factory Obsolete
Fear Factory Mechanize
This is the best FF album since Obsolete. I only gave it one listen so far, but it might be even better than Demaufacture in time. Dino's return sparked a great return to form on this album and they went back to the old sound they had before Archetype and Transgression. Burton sounds as great as ever too. Oh, and Gene Holgan is a monster behind the kit on this. Its awesome.

Linkin Park The Hunting Party
Its been over a decade since Linkin Park released a record that has had any lasting impact. The Hunting Party feels like the true follow up to Meteora in the sense that it really is a solid rock record and sounds like a natural progression from their original sound. In no way is it perfect, and the flaws in their sound still show, but even with these faults the album succeeds because it shows the side of the band that we all fell in love with in the first place more than any of their past 3 records have. An unexpected surprise indeed.

Verse Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace
The hype was all worth it, the return of Verse is signaled by this monster of an album in which you can tell by the emotion of the music that the band have a fire in them again as they tear through every track. Might be AOTY for hardcore.
We Are The Fallen Tear The World Down
I encourage you to drop everything you might think about We Are The Fallen being an Evanescence copy, for this album destroys everything Evanescence has ever done. Carlies vocals are incredible, and Ben Moody's signature guitar sound and writing skill that was so prominent on the Evansecence debut is ever so present on this release. Tear The World Down shows that We Are The Fallen are a force to reckoned with and have tons of potential.

Anberlin Cities
Architects Daybreaker
Judging by the withered crown on the cover, Daybreaker is clearly meant to be the other side of Hollow Crown's coin, and it certainly plays out that way. The band took the best elements of the sound they presented on The Here and Now and mixed it with some of the heavier tones of previous works and for the most part its a lot more enjoyable than their last release. Some songs here though fall completely flat, and although "Unbeliever" is meant to mirror "Hollow Crown" as an emotional album closer, it doesn't come anywhere close to matching it.
Architects Lost Forever // Lost Together
Architects continue to attempt to find their way back to a heavier sound reminiscent of their Ruin and Hollow Crown days, and this album is about as close as they've ever gotten to achieving that. Still though, they don't quite make it back there. Sam's vocals, however, have definitely taken a step up from recent efforts.

This album confuses me. Even after a few listens I'm still trying to get a grasp on how I feel about it. The band are clearly giving it their all, and Emil Werstler certainly holds his own replacing Rob Arnold as the bands primary songwriter, but the songs are seriously lacking the hooks and instrumental passages that made their self-titled and Resurrection such great albums. Still though, for having the entire lineup apart from Hunter replaced this is still a solid effort, it just lacks variation and blends together way too often.

Korn Korn III: Remember Who You Are
Korn recruit Ross Robinson for the first time since 1996 and create their best album in years. In a career filled with mediocrity, they actually managed to go back to their roots on this one to create an album worth listening to again. Jonathan Davis actually sounds convincing like he did on the first 2 records, the riffs are heavy, Fieldy's bass isnt as annoying, and new drummer Ray Luzier proves to be a worthy replacement to David Silveria behind the kit.
Korn The Path of Totality
Many will regard this album as a terrible work of music and an abomination, but the fact remains that Korn have been doing the same nu-metal sound since their 1994 debut. Sure, they manipulated it with See You on the Other Side and Untitled, but its grown very tiring to listen to a Korn record these days. With the elements of electronic music thrown into the mix with The Path of Totality the band have made their music interesting to listen to again if anything. Pretty impressive to see them rebounding off of their recent redundant albums with this.
Lady Gaga Born This Way
While those who loved how The Fame Monster turned out might not like her new direction, there is no denying that Lady Gaga is stepping out of her comfort zone and evolving her sound with each release. With new experimentation everywhere, Born This Way combines elements from both of her previous works and injects a new energy into her sound. This album shows that Gaga not only takes risks, but is growing more and more as an artist.

Showing a much more metal-influenced sound this time around, the Murderdolls 2nd studio album (their first in 8 years) is much better than their sometimes inconsistent debut. The riffs are heavy, the drumming is precise, and Wednesday 13's vocals are great. Only weaknesses would be the lack of bass and the lyrics.

Its not as good or as heavy as The Flood, and Shayley brought something unique to the band that feels missing here. The production on that album was near perfect as well. That being said, Aaron shines the most on this album and there are some really great melodies on a lot of these tracks. Austin isn't up to par with his past performances, but he has his moments, most notably on You Make Me Sick. Overall its solid though, and they made a great move choosing Aaron as their new clean vocalist.

Rob Zombie Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor
After two horribly disappointing albums, it really is nice to hear Rob Zombie finally return to form on Regeneration Vendor. Praise must once again be given to guitarist John 5, who packs this album full of heavy and infectious riffs. Another ex-Manson member has joined the Zombie fold in the form of drummer Ginger Fish, who proves to be the best drummer for the band yet. The industrial-tinged horror rock vibe that Zombie made himself known for on his early work has finally been brought back to the forefront on this album, which is by far his best solo album in over a decade.
Scar the Martyr Scar the Martyr
SECRETS Fragile Figures
The band have improved a lot since their debut. New screamer Aaron Melzer is a perfect fit for the band, and Richard Rogers' clean vocals continue to improve and be the true highlight of the album. The whole thing is a lot more enjoyable than The Ascent.
Senses Fail Still Searching
Shadows Fall Retribution
Shadows Fall Fire From the Sky
Shadows Fall have returned, and not much has changed since 2009's Retribution. The melodies and thrash riffs are still present, and the production is fantastic due to Adam D's contributions. Still though, the band is moving further and further into commercial territory with vocalist Brian Fair's prominent usage of clean vocals combined with his signature bark, which might continue to alienate listeners.

Suicide Silence have started to push their sound into more of a metalcore direction and away from their deathcore roots, but they still arent showing any variation in their music. This is where The Black Crown falls flat; in the fact that every song sounds identical to the one before it. The chugging riffs and breakdowns are still present, but the vocals continue to improve. Mitch Lucker keeps getting better, but the rest of the band arent pushing further like he is.
