Contributor Jason Zins has been an album reviewing machine this year, and following you will find his top 10 releases of 2013. Commence headbanging.

 

1. DEVILDRIVER : WINTER KILLS

Simply their best and my pick for album of the year.

 

2. BLACK SABBATH : 13

A masterpiece by the masters.

 

3. WATAIN : THE WILD HUNT

Black metal at its best. Period.

 

4. SKELETONWITCH : SERPENTS UNLEASHED

Skeletonwitch have grown as a band, and they now have the production to bring their music to the masses.

 

5. DEATH ANGEL : DREAM CALLS FOR BLOOD

1980s thrash NEVER dies!

 

6. CARCASS : SURGICAL STEEL

Pure death-chugging and crunchy. The way it is meant to be.

 

7. VENEMOUS MAXIMUS : BEG UPON THE LIGHT

Surprise pick here. This is one album I have listened to so many times that I have lost count. Cool NWOBHM feel.

 

8. HATEBREED : THE DIVINITY OF PURPOSE

The hardcore masters have proven their legacy.

 

9. DEICIDE : IN THE MINDS OF EVIL

Pure evil and the way death metal is meant to be.

 

10. A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH : LAY MY SOUL TO WASTE

Sal Abruscato carries Peter Steele‘s legacy well and this album is pure doom. The epitome of doom.
