Also, my list:

Cauchemar - Tenebrario: Incredibly solid release, cheers Stranglehold for showing me them. Definitely worth the 7 bucks on bandcamp.

Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle: Awesome, total Summoning worship and nothing wrong with that.


Albums that are great, but haven't listened to enough to form a solid opinion:

October Falls - The Plauge of a Coming Age: I've listened to this once so far, and I really dig it. I'll need to check it out more, however.

Summoning - Old Morning's Dawn: I know, you'd think I would be the first to listen to this one, but I haven't listened to it more than once, for the sole reason of not having the time to actually get it on my ipod.

Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess: Not out yet, but judging by Sol Invictus, will be AOTY for me.

Nokturnal Mortum - Істина: Will be amazing, similar to TWG.

Looking back on this list, I haven't listened to a whole ton from 2013. Will have to, once the "best" ones are out.

So, the new Gorguts has... Well, you know. Needless to say, it is absolutely astounding. If you liked Forgotten Arrows and An Ocean of Wisdom, you will not be disappointed! This is definitely a contender of AOTY for me so far. 2013 has definitely been a great fukking year for metal.

Edit-If I have time later on today, I am going to list all of the albums mentioned so far in the first post. This way it will be easier for those of us who have not listened to everything posted yet to keep track of what is happening this year.

EPs that tickled my fancy:

The Gates of Slumber - Stormcrow
Nunslaughter - Noctis (Just a live taping of the show, great performance)
Sangre Y Tierra - Cobarde
Sangre Y Tierra - En Los Arboles Que Florecen
Drowning the Light - Dead Soul Requiem
Cold Body Radiation - The Longest Shadow Ever Cast
Antediluvian - Septentrional Theophany
Bolzer - Aura
Trist - Večerní samoty
Bifröst - The Dance of the Evanescent
Ash Borer - Bloodlands
Uzumaki - Gift of Tongues
An Autumn for Crippled Children - Hearts of Light | Blossoms


Looking forward to new Vasaeleth, and I haven't heard Jex Thoth's Circles either. Sutekh Hexen haven't listened to yet either.

Forgot to mention Thou Art Lord was a neat full length.
#44
I second the October Falls release. Really good shit.

God, this year has been chocked full of nothing but good releases. Haven't heard the new Gorguts, but I can imagine it's good.
#45
A few bands releases that went under my radar were Apolion's Genocide and Lord Ryur compilations, which feature new tracks from each band. Definitely get on those!

When is this meant to be out? I heard the announcement but no other details that I can recall. The first full-length was great, so I'm very curious about this release

Okay, I edited the first post with all of the LPs and EPs mentioned so far, excluding some of the stuff you all designated as non metal releases. If you notice any mistakes, or you want me to include something else, let me know. If I have time, and I am feeling up to it, I will go back and either alphabetize the albums, or I will separate by genre. Or I will do both. We shall see.

P.S. Stop listening to so much music Severed, you ass!

Nobody laughed at my Stranglehold or Duncang jokes; I thought they were funny.

Sometime at the end of next month if I remember correctly. I've always thought Vasaeleth were better in small bursts, which is why I find their splits and demos to be absolutely some of my favourites.

Take solace in knowing there is someone who finds it funny who just doesn't post, or might not even exist.


--------------------------------------------------------

I might do some demos in a bit, as I've only got time and there are a few that are pretty neat.

If I can be bothered later I might alphabetise and split into genres for you, just to make it more digestible as a list.



If you want to do it Slate (your new name), I would appreciate it, but don't feel obligated to do it. I'll get around to it either later today, or sometime this week.

I've made a start. It'll either be done by tonight or tomorrow.

I'm relying on metal archives for genres of bands I don't know (and listening to which element is more prominant for those who straddle genres), so I'll post the list first and let everyone make suggestions for bands being moved if needs be.

I don't mind, there's probably a half way point that's right, as we've both categorised a few albums differently.

But I don't mind, which ever you/everyone thinks is more accurate.

I'll leave it open for a bit to see what some of the other members think. If no one cares, I'll just make an executive decision.

Has to be Tribulation - The Formulas of Death for me. One of the best-written albums I've ever heard. Every time I listen to it I discover something new, and for someone at my level of musical cynicism that's quite a feat. A classic.

I should've said something about this earlier.

But yes, so much yes. That album is easily one of the best of the year, if not the best outright. The sheer quality of the songwriting and riffs and everything else is insane.

AND, they're coming to my town!!!!

The new list is up. Thanks to all who contributed. I will be updating it with new albums as they come, and I will probably rearrange some of the albums too as I see fit; so don't stop contributing to the thread if you find an album you want on the list.

Here's one of my favorite beers for you UG:

My favourite metal albums this year (that haven't been mentioned yet)

Batillus - Concrete Sustain

Doom Metal band with industrial influence, mainly on the vocals, incredibly crushing... like concrete xD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzYWkaJWzRg

Hateform - Sanctuary in Abyss

Incredibly unforgiving Melodic Death Metal done right, at least I think so.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SajUwYrA4V8

Leperous - Coal

Bordering on not metal... but awesome progressive music none the less.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oO2rfXgCGY

Shining - OneOneOne

Again arguably "not metal" but it's certainly unique.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpyrbD-jeFs

Sulphur Aeon - Swallowed by the Ocean's Tide

The world needs more albums about Cthluhu... well it needs more GOOD ones... like this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6cFDfQJi8I

Really like the new October Tide too, but I've not listened to it enough to say if it's really great or not.

The power metal list is looking kinda sad so here's some of my picks:

Avalon - The Land of New Hope
Avantasia -The Mystery of Time
Cellador - Honor Forth (EP)
Dark Moor - Ars Musica
Derdian - Limbo
Enceladus - Time in a Dream (EP)
Enforcer - Death by Fire (might fit under heavy metal)
Gamma Ray - Master of Confusion (EP)
Helloween - Straight Out of Hell
Hero for the World, A - s/t
Majesty - Thunder Rider
Mistress - Heavy Mental
Powerwolf - Preachers of the Night
Pretty Maids - Motherland
Who are you? The prince of darkness? Don't you have any friends?

I'll update the list with the new stuff tomorrow guys.

Edit: The changes have been implemented. I also added a Melodic Death Metal Section, and I'm thinking about adding stuff like Drone, Post Metal, etc. We'll see. I don't want to make an entire column for something like Cult of Luna when I can just put it in other/progressive. Maybe I'll just put a genre tag next to the ones in that column.
