2010-2014: Top 100 Albums (WIP)

2008 might've been my first proper taste of metal, with the acquisition of albums from the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and that most grandiose of gateway bands, DragonForce. 2009 might've seen me expanding my palette, with Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, and more entering my world, and Guns N' Roses triumphantly re-entering it. But 2010 was when I delved into more 'intense' stuff with Machine Head, In Flames, and most notably of all, Sylosis, and saw my relationship with metal shift from ever-increasing interest into full-blown love affair. To commemorate this 5-year anniversary, and because I love making lists, I decided to do a retrospective of the best albums and songs that have been released during this time period, and give brief tributes to them. Yay music!

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Protest The Hero - Volition
4. Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR
5. Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone

Oh God... Did You Eat All This Acid? That's Right. Music!

You better pray to God there's some Thorazine in that bag....

A personal list of metal, vaguely metal and metal related albums I consider psychedelic that expand, contort, implode, transcend and numb my mind, in the nicest possible ways. Read that as: I don't care about your definition of psychedelic; my mind goes where it gets carried

1. A Forest Of Stars - The Corpse of Rebirth
2. A Void In Coma - A Primal Obsession With The Cosmos​.​.​.
3. Acid Witch - Witchtanic Hellucinations
4. Aluk Todolo - Occult Rock

Mind Manifesting: Apothecary's Guide To Psychedelic Soundscapes

I've always been a huge fan for psychedelic music of any and all kinds. The enveloping atmosphere, the ability of minimalist solos to create a grand sense of harmony, and all those deliciously trippy effects that you can zone out with... they all come together for such a stimulating, otherworldly experience. This is often the type of music I'm most comfortable with: dazing, mind numbing, and hypnotizing.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Æthenor - En Form for Blå
3. Angst Skvadron - Sweet Poison
4. Atomikylä - Erkale
5. Bong - Stoner Rock

Women of Doom

I love doom metal in all its forms and I also happen to like a lot of female-fronted metal. Combined, these two elements can potentially result in great music and therefore I decided to create this list. The only criteria I have is that there has to be female vocals on at least the majority of the albums so no "beauty and the beast"-style bands.

1. 13 - Hollow / Bound
2. A Tree Of Signs - Salt
3. Acid King - Busse Woods
4. Alunah - White Hoarhound
5. Anagram To Anna - God, Me & Monsters

A Reminder Of 2013's Albums

Albums from 2013 worth being considered for a replay, I'm already having trouble remembering some of them. I'll TRY to order them from the one I liked most to the least.
I'm taking a passive stand to this year's music since I'm dedicating myself to old records currently, so probably 3/4 of the stuff I checked out came to me from this site one way or another

1. Corrections House - Last City Zero
2. Dreadnought - Lifewoven
3. Ayreon - The Theory Of Everything
4. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
5. Kayo Dot - Hubardo

2013 gnirpz's essentials

That's the 2013 gnirpz's essentials in order, following the releases along the year. Every ranking should be based on production quality, originality, musical technicality and specs like that.

Unfortunatelly, mine is based on headbanging, taste of beer, air guitar and air drum solos.

2013 feelings, form best to worst

1. Gris - À L'Âme Enflammée, L'Äme Constellée...
2. Ghost B.C. - Infestissumam
3. Deafheaven - Sunbather
4. ASG - Blood Drive
5. Skeletonwitch - Serpents Unleashed

Best (the rest, and the worst) of 2013 (thus far).
Partially ordered (the ones with descriptions).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

The curtain call to another fascinating year for metal beckons. Far from disappointing, 2013 is marked by some outstanding releases from various genres, many of whom excelled well beyond expectations. A pretty diverse and intense outing has yielded a very large number of albums to this list, a fact that I take heart from, especially from the more unknown ones from both MS and outside, as many of the obscure findings have truly caught me by surprise. All in all, it has been good fun finding and listening to awesome and diverse music, from both inside and outside of my comfort zone. Lastly, a special thank you to everyone who helped making the list better, with corrections and recommendations and whatever else, and those who made their appreciation felt in one way or the other, as well as other list makers, from whom I siphoned stuff up from time to time.

1. Ulcerate - Vermis
2. The Monolith Deathcult - Tetragrammaton
3. Persefone - Spiritual Migration
4. Witherscape - The Inheritance
5. Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

2. Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
3. Progenie Terrestre Pura - U​.​M​.​A.
