Am I allowed to put screamo stuff on my list in addition to hardcore/metalcore/post-hardcore since some of the bands are covered in this forum? Assuming yes here's some in some particular order.

Protest the Hero - Volition
The Dillinger Escape Plan - One of Us is the Killer
Circle Takes the Square - Decompositions Volume Number One
Touche Amore - Is Survived By
Old Gray - An Autobiography
Listener - Time is a Machine
Todos Caeran - Town of Cats
State Faults - Resonate/Desperate
Saintly Rows - Everything I Was Afraid of Happening, Happened
Norma Jean - Wrongdoers
A Lot Like Birds - No Place
Misery Signals - Absent Light
The Safety Fire - Mouth of Swords
Nails - Abandon All Life
Raspberry Bulbs - Deformed Worship

I think that's all that's in my current top 100. Not including Deafheaven because they don't really fit "hardcore" even though they have some hardcore influence and are on a hardcore label, but they're my number 1 overall.

Hey, does anyone in here know what ever happened to that full-length Cerce was supposed to put out (and they said they'd still put out even though they broke up)? Or the new Vales full-length that was supposed to come out this year?

I also really dig the new Pity Sex... but that isn't really hardcore. More Modern Emo.

As far as Hardcore goes I really liked the new Seizures, Shizune, and A Lot Like Birds. I've not kept up with Hardcore the past year, been more into the Metal scene than anything else.

I've heard like 20

I try to find new bands to listen to more than albums tho

And in regards to just entertainment products, I'm much more on top of new movies and video game releases.

I've only really liked Touche Amore's, Old Gray's, Native's and Blake's stuff

You guys would probably really like Native though seeing as no one's mentioned them.

How do you guys listen to so many albums in a year? I feel like I can't actually digest more than 40 new ones a year, and that might be pushing it.

1. Intronaut - Habitual Levitations
2. Phoenix - Bankrupt!
3. Tera Melos - X'ed Out
4. Evan Brewer - Your Itinerary
5. FS - Cheers and Fears from the Past Year
6. Rivers of Nihil - The Conscious Seed of Light
7. Plini - Other Things / Sweet Nothings
8. This Town Needs Guns - 13.0.0.0.0
9. HRVRD - From the Bird's Cage
10. The Black Dahlia Murder - Everblack

This is my top ten list for 2013. I think. I also really enjoyed the new Avett Brothers, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mark Guiliana, and Incendiary records.
