20.) Blood Ceremony - The Eldritch Dark

I don't think I've listened to Blood Ceremony since their first studio album, but I don't remember them being so flute-y. It's metal for wood nymphs and I love it. This is like the perfect combination of Sabbath worship and influence from '70s rock like Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac.

Witchwood
Goodbye Gemini



19.) Entrails - Raging Death

Some more great Swedish death metal with the great HM-2 buzzsaw sound. The somewhat creepy atmosphere on the album harks back to Nihilist's material from the '80s. Also, I read that this is the first of their three albums where they actually had to write all new material and didn't use old demo tracks and you can't even tell the difference. It still sounds as natural as the music they wrote in the '90s.

They didn't have my favorite song, "Carved to the Bone" on Youtube, but here's these.
In Pieces
Bloodhammer



18.) Mindmaze - Mask of Lies

Power/prog is usually not my thing, but this is a definite exception. For one, female vocals are always a plus and this is the right kind of female vocals, not the gimmicky and overtly poppy kind. I was definitely hooked on this after hearing the catchiness of single, "Never Look Back."

Never Look Back
This Holy War



17.) Agrimonia - Rites of Separation

A mix of atmospheric sludge metal, black metal, crust punk and a bunch of other influences that almost transcends genre labels. Agrimonia do long songs right. There's no boring parts to any of their songs and four of the five songs clock in over ten minutes. "Talion" and "Hunted" feature two of the best riffs recorded all year. This album seems to be getting overlooked this year, but it truly is one of the finest releases of the year, so if you consider yourself a fan of any of the aforementioned genres (or metal in general), check this album out.

Talion
Hunted



16.) Subrosa - More Constant Than the Gods

This is the best doom release of 2013. I don't know what it is about classical instruments (violins in this case) that make doom sound so good, but they do. The vocals are haunting yet beautiful and the music is crushing at times and gorgeous at others.

The Usher
Fat of the Ram

Entrails, fuck yeah! Track 5 'Cadaverous Stench' is my favorite from the album. Awesomely heavy album, great mix of old school and Swedish death metal.

That's my second favorite, but Youtube didn't have that one either. Yeah, these guys are ridiculously good at what they do.

I actually think Raging Death is the weakest of their three full-lengths. Check out Tales From The Morgue and The Tomb Awaits if you haven't heard those. Great band. You think they like Entombed?

15.) Dead in the Dirt - The Blind Hole

Twenty two songs in twenty four minutes of some of the fastest and filthiest grindcore out there. Dead in the Dirt apply a combination of blistering riffs, a grimy bass tone and tasteful use of feedback to create some of the most compelling grind around.

Suffer
Knife in the Feathers



14.) Noisem - Agony Defined

While most neo-thrash bands are busy worshiping Exodus, Noisem are firmly rooted in the style of Dark Angel and Hell Awaits-era Slayer. In other words, my kind of thrash. Noisem's goal is to play scorching riffs at high speeds and achieve this they do. This isn't the most technically proficient or songwriting-focused thrash, but I wouldn't have it any other way. This is just twenty five minutes of pure fun. Also, their ages range from 15-20. HOLY FUCKING SHIT! Seriously.

Voices in the Morgue
Split From the Inside Out




13.) Enforcer - Death by Fire

I don't understand how whoever had this in their thread could say the songs aren't memorable. "Mesmerized by Fire, "Take Me Out of This Nightmare" and "Death Rides This Night" get stuck in my head for hours after listening. This is some of the best traditional metal to come out all year. Enforcer remind me of the instrumentation of early Iron Maiden with vocals similar to Angel Witch in a way.

Death Rides This Night
Mesmerized By Fire



12.) Coffins - The Fleshland

Another murky, swampy release from Japan's one and probably only death/doom band, Coffins. I really like Coffins style of death/doom because they incorporate a psychedelic influence in their music (mostly solos) that is slightly reminiscent of their fellow countrymen, Church of Misery. Trance like and plodding at times and sounding like a soundtrack to a horror movie at others. Really good shit.

Here Comes Perdition
The Colossal Hole




11.) Incendiary - Cost of Living

The best straight up NYHC sounding release I've heard in years. Just straight up pissed off hardcore with no frills and just enough of a metallic edge to not make their sound stale. If the last minute of "Primitive Rage" doesn't make you want to punch things then I don't know what will. This is what Hatebreed should sound like.

Primitive Rage
Erase Myself

Being your friend and all, your hatred of Hatebreed still puzzles me.

They're a highly praised band that makes sub-par music. Perfect kind of band to hate.
