MICHELLE N.D.’s TOP 10 of 2013

Michelle N.D. is one of a few contributors who came aboard in 2013, and she brings with her varying tastes in metal (as long as it isn’t black!) and a little bit of attitude, too. Here are Michelle’s top 10 albums of the year.

 

FATES WARNING : DARKNESS IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

Their first new album in nine years, Darkness in a Different Light is a beautiful, musical peek into the lives of my favorite musicians. Highlights: The heartbreaking “Firefly” and “I Am.”

 

STONESOUR : HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES PART 2

 

QUEENSRYCHE : SELF-TITLED

In addition to his hypnotic voice, Todd La Torre is the best thing to happen to Queensryche since Geoff Tate started spitting on drummers.

 

TESTAMENT : DARK ROOTS OF THRASH

 

METAL CHURCH : GENERATION NOTHING

 

DREAM THEATER : SELF-TITLED

Mike Mangini is a genius. Period.

 

DEATH ANGEL : THE DREAM CALLS FOR BLOOD

 

SOULFLY : SAVAGES

 

GORGUTS : COLORED SANDS

This brilliant technical metal band has a new sound that is a must-hear.

 

BLACK SABBATH : 13
