    ... the highest rated metal album of 2013 on RYM.

    Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers
    Heathen - Evolution of Chaos
    Exhumed - All Guts, No Glory
    Autopsy - Macabre Eternal
    Obituary - Frozen in Time

    Last years Rigor Mortis album is pretty solid too.

    I actually hated Tempo. And everything Zetro sang on tbh. :lol: The album after Tempo though... Shovel Headed Kill Machine. It was okay though.

    Mekong Delta's Wanderer on the Edge of Time is excellent, my favorite and pretty different for them too.

    They broke up for a few years between Born in America and Thundersteel. You could actually say that Thundersteel is a comeback album.

    If you think about the time gap of releases containing new material, Release by Revelation qualifies as an excellent comback album.

    I guess Mortuary Drape's Spiritual Independence counts as a comeback. Definitely one of my favourites in recent years. Dream Death - Somnium Excessum is quite good too.

    Forgot about that one, definitely counts. Brenner didn't even sing on their previous album!

    Yes to Release and Blood Farmers. Holy fuck, that Revelation album is a masterpiece.

    And the new Gorguts album was a turd.

    Only Gorguts I've ever enjoyed is Obscura tbh.

    It has nothing to do with image, shitlord. :lol: I found the albums before and after boring. Obscura is so radically different in songwriting and arrangement that its the only one that really connected.

    Save your butthurt posturing for another thread. :)

    The Erosion of Sanity is clearly superior for anyone that cares about riffs.

    As I said in the controversial opinions thread, I don't view metal as solely a vehicle for riffs, so:

    I liked Cynic's recent comeback album even though it was an entirely different style and it caused them to break up again. Hope they do another comeback album sometime.

    Also, black sabbath - 13 was great.
