So far my favorite album this year has been Black Sabbath's 13. I've been listening to it a lot since it came out about a month ago.

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories is pretty damn good as well. I know in September Nine Inch Nails has a new album coming out and so far the first single is pretty damn good, so it may be my favorite one of the year if that song is any indication.

Well Copper Tongue & Gamma Knife are pretty much the only albums I didn't get too much into yet - most notably because I have yet to devote an evening to closely listen to them. As for Ayreon, not as far as I know though I have only looked around sparsely. Also got to skim through your list there - there's many a name I do not know yet ;)
Heh, yeah well there's a few in their I'm not overly familiar with either but just thought from what I've heard (more about them than actually having sampled anything at this stage, at least one of those albums isn't even released yet) that they might be worth checking out at some point. If you're looking for more Jazz-fusiony stuff I'd definitely recommend giving Exivious a crack.

Heard: Immolation ~ Kingdom Of Conspiracy, Hypocrisy ~ End Of Disclosure, The Monolith Deathcult ~ Tetragrammaton and probably something else i can not remember

Can very late 2012 count? At the very least I first heard this in 2013.

If not than this is fully 2013, both are great, cant pick favorites.



Somehow I've come into the position of mainly listening to Touhou.

I've had a hard time getting into my typical rock and metal lately, as all my favorite bands tend to decline in their later works with some clear motivation having been lost. I will never destroy a rock CD again like I did Stone Sour's Come What(Ever) May, and while that was their second big release it was a great climax in their career and I don't quite feel it anymore from them like I used to, while I still enjoy the occasional listen to their singles. But this year what saved me was Jolly coming out with a new album, with the ridiculously catchy "Firewell" that I just can't stop listening to:


I think, with my rock listening, another revive effort came from Megadeth, while it was a very generic album, it felt like an album that just delivered that updated 80's rock feel, without trying to go over the top or not do enough. It just kind of happened, and it's my main album for playing online games to now.

And Clutch NAILED the Earth Rocker album this year.

From what little I've heard this year, I'd say Summonings "Old Mornings Dawn" album.

No question, What About Now by Bon Jovi! A great mix of These Days and Lost Highway, my two favourite albums :D They're such phenomenal songwriters- the only band I can think of who treat music as an art.

EDIT: And looking at the thread I guess Bon Jovi isn't as popular in this kind of community...
