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

Epic Album Closers

Some albums are really good. Many of these are good all the way around. And, in many cases, there is a single song that stands out, sometimes it's the last song on the album. This is a list of those songs.

For a more in depth look at this, I've codified each into a given category:
Type 1 - 'The long song at the end.' Often the title track. These have a tendency to be most well written and dynamic pieces on the album.

1. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
2. Abigail Williams - Becoming
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
5. Anekdoten - Vemod

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

1. Fen - Dustwalker
2. Riverside - Shrine Of New Generation Slaves
