    We're at the arse end of 2013... so what have your favourite albums this year been?

    in no particular order, mine would have to be

    1. Feared- Furor Incarnatus
    2. Feared- Vinter
    3. Alice In Chains- The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here


    Honestly aside fomr those I haven't heard much this year that's blown me away

    Although the possibility of new machine head, periphery and slipknot next year makes me happy happy happy

    Have to say, I just listened to Vinter and it completely blew me away. I always liked Feared, but there's something gleefully brutal about it that really caught me offguard. I haven't heard a metal album that made me go "WHOA. SHIT." in a long time, and it definitely did it for me.

    Only other thing I've really enjoyed this year was One of Us is the Killer by Dillinger, and Habitual Levitations by Intronaut, which I thought was excellent but went a little too far into noodly territory at times. Most of the bands I really love either broke up recently or are in-between albums and member lineup changes (see: Isis; Opeth; Acacia Strain).

    I kind of like this band, but they also make me frustrated because they remind me of the fact that Premonitions of War will never make another album.

    Definately James LaBrie's Impermanent Resonance and Extol - Extol which have become my benchmarks especially for the low-end.
    Jens Bogren is the man!
    KSE's Disarm the Decent comes in on third place.

    Non-Metal: Daft Punk's Random Access Memories
