XIII

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

Crushing (Not For The Faint Of Heart)

A little list of albums that have been kicking my ass as of late. Some albums on this list may appear to be "odd" choices, but "crushing" in this context does not necessarily mean heavy. It could be referring to the emotional intensity of the release or the literal heavy pounding sound. Hope you enjoy.

1. Esoteric - The Pernicious Enigma
2. Ahab - The Divinity Of Oceans
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Warning - Watching From A Distance
5. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All

*The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes)*

This is a list of the top songs over 10 minutes long in my humble opinion. I had to resist the urge not to put every single Symphony X, Opeth and Agalloch song over 10 minutes long on the list so some of equally high quality are left off to increase diversity. Songs are sorted by approximate preference with #1 inspiring the list. I love long songs so if you know a good one please send me a message and I'll give it a listen. **Last Update 09/03/2011**

1. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
2. Gorod - Transcendence
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
5. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite

Supermassive List: Top 20 Picks of Each Year of the Last Decade (2000-2009)

This is not a typical "Best of the decade" list. To be more precise, it's a list about the top 20 albums of each year of the last decade (the ones in MS), in my perspective of course. In this way, a lot of good albeit overlooked albums can get some exposure, in addition to covering more ground at the same time.

1. 2009
2. Sybreed - The Pulse Of Awakening
3. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
4. Porcupine Tree - The Incident

The Best "(Gothic) Beauty And The Beast" Albums

Here's a list of mostly Gothic Metal albums, exclusively of the "Beauty and the Beast" type (which refers to clean "angelic" female vocals contrasted with male growls/screams). I made this list because it's one of my all-time favourite subgenres of which I own "a lot" of great albums. Since there are several lists of the best Gothic Metal albums on MS, I didn't feel like creating a similar one, but rather an exclusive list solely comprised of this subgenre. It could be useful as a guide for people who are searching for these kinds of albums, though I'm very open to suggestions since I obviously haven't heard all great albums yet. Lastly, everything on this list is at least worth a 7.5/10 rating and I only add a maximum of 3 albums per band.

1. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
2. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
3. Draconian - Where Lovers Mourn
4. Epica - The Phantom Agony
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear

Promo's Picks Of The Passing Decade

Actually I wanted to write a blog as several of my colleagues, but now that we have this nifty new feature there's no reason to bother with formatting all the pics and stuff

So this was it. The decade which saw me turning into a metalhead. Actually I've been listening to metal since 17 years now, but not on a regular basis. This changed (to the better) when I joined this site in the good old days of MSR. Agalloch, Anathema and Tristania got me used to growls, Immortal and Agathodaimon to extreme metal as a whole and soon enough I was hooked to the vast plethora of styles which are to be found in heavy metal. The following list presents my personal top 50 of this decade. The order isn't really set in stone, neither is my musical taste, but at least the top 10 are somewhat fixed. Especially the 2009 releases, of which none made it into my top 25, might not stand the test of time. And please don't message me because you disagree with some of the genres, they are neither there to be discussed nor to educate, but to give an impression what the bands sound like. If you have about the same (broad) taste as I have, but aren't familiar with some of these releases, try to get your hands on them. You won't regret it

1. Negură Bunget - OM
2. Agalloch - The Mantle
3. Redemption - The Origins of Ruin
4. Dark Tranquillity - Character
5. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro

Favourite Bands And Then Their Horrible Fuckshit Gutwrenching Excuse For "Album Artwork"

These as said above in my opinion, the worst most inexcuseable passed out finished covers out of the full discographies of some of my favourite artists in which some of them are known for specific styles. Yet these ones are shit. In no specific order except for remembrance.

1. Slayer - Undisputed Attitude
2. Slayer - Diabolus In Musica
3. Iron Maiden - Virtual XI
4. Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death
5. Amon Amarth - The Crusher
