This topic is obligatory is it not? And we had one for 2012 in 2012 before this date so it's overdue!

I believe I've been slower in 2013 than I was in 2012 for reviewing new releases, but I hit 20 today. Here is my equally obligatory Rate Your Music list of them: http://rateyourmusic.com/list/adg211288/2013_album_rankings

What albums from 2013 have you enjoyed so far? What are you looking forward to. Discuss here.

Well...I havent really begun reviewing many of the 2013 promos I have lying around, so these are the only albums Ive had time to review (not all reviews are posted yet):
 
1. Helloween - Straight Out of Hell
2. Andy Winter - Incomprehensible
3. Hatchet - Dawn of the End
4. Suffocation - Pinnacle of Bedlam
5. Void of Sleep - Tales Between Reality and Madness
 
Im not too crazy about the Helloween album, although its certainly decent, but the other releases have been quite a pleasure to review...

I have enjoyed quite a few new releases already.

Enforcer - Death By Fire
Darkthrone - The Underground Resistance
Manilla Road - Mysterium
Rotting Christ -  Κατά τον δαίμονα του εαυτού
Voivod - Target Earth (worse cover art of the year)

Lots more to come including Ghost & Dream Theater.

Here's my list over at RYM so far: http://rateyourmusic.com/list/J_Man/2013s_best_albums

I've heard a lot of other great releases that I haven't had the chance to review yet, but I'm hoping to get on those soon. The new Suffocation is something I've really been enjoying lately. Thumbs Up

All I've heard in full so far has been the new Tomahawk, Voivod, and Steven Wilson (which is not metal).  I've enjoyed them all though.

I thought it was solid but patchy. Some songs stood as some of the best from the Deris era for me but others as some of the worst. I gave it a 4 star range rating in the end but for me its a definite step down from their last couple of releases.

What I have listened to so far:
Darkthrone - The Underground Resistance
Helloween - Straight Out of Hell
Katalepsy - Autopsychosis
Manilla Road - Mysterium
Voivod - Target Earth

I liked 7 Sinners quite a deal more than Straight Out of Hell. That being said, it definitely has it's moments. So far I'd have to say my favourite of 2012 is Voivod's. I find myself going back to it and enjoying it just as much as the listen before. The new Darkthrone and Manilla Road are kickass too. Katalepsy released a pretty awesome album. I'm waiting to get the new Rotting Christ in the mail before I listen to it.

I find this year is pretty slow for me so far, considering I've only listened to 5 albums. There's a couple I need to get around to checking out (Suffocation's newest in particular).

Im listening to this one right now, which I received as a promo from Prosthetic Records:
NERO DI MARTE - Nero di Marte cover
 
...quite a great surprise...sounds like a mix between Gojira and Ulcerate...

I always have the following 2013 releases I've heard but haven't reviewed yet:

Attacker - Giants of Canaan
Lightning Swords of Death - Baphometic Chaosivm

And a lot of promos I haven't even listened to yet. 

These are the albums I'm looking forward to though:

A Sound of Thunder - Time's Arrow 
Avantasia - The Mystery of Time 
Factory of Dreams - Some Kind of Poetic Destruction 
Gamma Ray - Master of Confusion (EP)
Project: Roenwolfe - Neverwhere Dreamscape

I really like the new Riverside, though it's probably the least metal of their albums.

The new Stratovarius is pretty decent, not great, but decent. I've liked all 3 albums that have Matias Kupiainen on guitar. I can't say the same about the Tolkki era...

edit: The new Circle II Circle is very good, I'd put it up there with their debut or Burden Of Truth (my personal fav)


I just got the new Steven Wilson in the mail, the plastic wrap is still on it as I type this....

I'm looking forward to the final Monolithe album in the series, which is in production at the moment, scheduled for release later this year (hopefully)

Its not really Metal more along the lines of Power Violence I would say but it is amazing I would say Abandon All Life by Nails is the best I've heard this year so far.
Soilworks new album is pretty good though Melodic Death Metal isn't really my thing, and Suffocation's new album is pretty good, their best album since their reformation in my opinion.

Also I found Portal's new album rather disappointing to be honest, I mean its good, just not up to the standards of their previous full lengths.

I saw the new Nails CD in a record store a week or two ago, but didn't pick it up. I've been meaning to check out Nails for a while now. Too much music, too little time! LOL
