BCTW can be proud--her push on this board got an unlikely band like Satan into the top five. Before she started talking about them, nobody gave a shit about what really is one of the most quality records out in recent years.


Truth. I had a copy of that Satan album, but didn't really spend any time with it until I started reading all the praise for it on this board. It prompted me to see what everyone was talking about, and I found that it was a really great record.

1. Clutch - Earth Rocker (#9)
2. Enforcer - Death By Fire (#43)
3. Orchid - The Mouths Of Madness (#18)
4. Blood Ceremony - The Eldritch Dark (#23)
5. Black Sabbath - 13 (#2)
6. The Gates Of Slumber - Stormcrow DNC
7. Kadavar - Abra Kadavar DNC
8. Ghost - Infestissumam (#16)
9. Magic Circle - Magic Circle (#76)
10. Iron Man - South Of The Earth DNC
11. Toxic Holocaust - Chemistry Of Consciousness (#46)
12. Age Of Taurus - Desperate Souls Of Tortured Times DNC
13. Death Angel - The Dream Calls For Blood (#5)
14. Iron Reagan - Worse Than Dead (#91)
15. Satan - Life Sentence (#4)

Special thanks to LoaF for doing this.

Post Re: Braveboard Top Albums of 2013
My list was metal only because I didn't think that any of my non-metal favourites would make the list anyway, but I am pleasantly surprised to see Nick Cave's latest break the 100...

1. Summoning - Old Morning's Dawn (#10)
2. Peste Noire - Peste Noire (DNC - WTF)
3. Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess (#8)
4. Satan - Life Sentence (#4)
5. Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle (#51)
6. Cultes des Ghoules - Henbane (#30)
7. Cult of Fire - मृत्यु का तापसी अनुध्यान (DNC)
8. Sacriphyx - The Western Front (#20)
9. Cosmic Church - Ylistys (#48)
10. Aosoth - IV: An Arrow in Heart (#64)
11. Grave Miasma- Odori Sepulcrorum (#42)
12. Magic Circle - Magic Circle (#76)
13. Christicide - Upheaval of the Soul (DNC)
14. Imprecation - Satanae Tenebris Infinita (DNC)
15. Neige Eternelle - Neige Eternelle (DNC)

Year of victory for BLACK METAL

1. Carcass - Surgical Steel #1
2. Warlord - The Holy Empire DNC....this makes me sad
3. Annihilator - Feast #25
4. Majesty - Banners High DNC
5. Jungle Rot - Terror Regime #90
6. Extol - S/T #55
7. Vreid - Welcome Farewell DNC
8. Helloween - Straight Out of Hell DNC :o
9. Stryper - No More Hell to Pay DNC
10. Blood Red Throne - S/T DNC
11. Falkenbach - Asa #32
12. Iced Earth - Live in Ancient Kourion DNC
13. Trouble - The Distortion Field #57
14. Mortillery - Origin Of Extinction DNC
15. Satan - Life Sentence #4

I'm shocked by Warlord and Helloween not charting, especially Warlord. That album is in my opinion an even more amazing comeback than Satan's.

Honestly, and it's not just here, but ambient black "metal" with 14 minute acoustic intros, punk riffs and songs about being a sad sack seem to have overtaken metal. I don't begrudge anyone their tastes, I just wonder at what point do we draw a line on what is metal and what isn't, because a lot of the stuff being called the latest thing in metal has no metal riffs and either sounds like what I mentioned or just proto-metal bong rock.

But whatever, I'm probably just old. :m:

I like Manilla Road, and I like that album, but I don't think it was one of the stronger releases this year... Plus, that album wasn't really pushed on this board, and it kind of fell on the wayside. It does deserve to be in the top 100, though.

Post Re: Braveboard Top Albums of 2013
Oh yeah, I never actually did the thing:

1. Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess 8
2. Bölzer - Aura 44
3. Vorum - Poisoned Void 13
4. Darkthrone - The Underground Resistance 6
5. Hail Of Bullets - III: The Rommel Chronicles 27
6. Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn 10
7. Cultes Des Ghoules - Henbane 30
8. Enforcer - Death By Fire 43
9. Saor - Roots 35
10. Gorguts - Coloured Sands 3
11. Thyrfing - De Odeslosa 33
12. Aosoth - IV: Arrow In Heart 64
13. Monarque - Lys Noir DNC
14. Celestial Bloodshed - Omega DNC
15. Falkenbach - Asa 32

I didn't realize I had 13 out of 15 place, that's bizarre for me. I'm really surprised nonetheless that Celestial Bloodshed didn't make it! It was not their strongest release (Cursed Scarred And Forever Possessed is head and shoulders above everything...) but still quite good.

There really were a few "HOLY SHIT" albums for me this year, and I'm really happy to see so many of them get recognized.

I'd say it was without a doubt the most anticipated album of the year, so I'm not surprised at all.

I'm saying that based on what I have read about it hear. Many were disappointed, as I was. Didn't even make my top 15.

I've not submitted one because I haven't heard enough album from last year to really comment. But if I had my top album would have been Suicide Black Snake by Integrity, blinding album.

No surprise Carcass wins. If I gave a crap about Carcass I'd get it. But eh.

A lot of people heard it and put it on their list. That's usually all it takes.

Thanks again to LOAF for doing this. Always fun.

My Top 15 stacked up as follows:

1. Gorguts - Colored Sands (3)
2. Altar of Plauges - Teethed Glory and Injury (67)
3. Subrosa - More Constant than Gods (66)
4. Inter Arma - Sky Burial (93)
5. Cloud Rat - Moksha (DNP)
6. Iron Man - South of the Earth (DNP)
7. Agrimonia - Rites of Separation (DNP)
8. Bölzer - Aura (44)
9. Oranssi Pazuzu - Valonielu (59)
10. Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess (8)
11. Church of Misery - Thy Kingdom Scum (94)
12. Magic Circle - Magic Circle (75)
13. Castevet - Obsian (DNP)
14. Empire of Rats - Empire of Rats (DNP)
15. Deafheaven - Sunbather (41)

I edited this a bit after my initial post but for the most part I just couldn't be bothered. Looking at it now, Deafheaven shouldn't be there and there could be some shuffling done, but for the most part I stand by it. Great year for metal... bring on 2014!

"Without a doubt"? :?

And I don't give a crap what the rest of the world thinks - this year gave us 3 glorious comeback albums that all live up to the greatness of their bands' names. "Colored Sands", "13" and "Surgical Steel" all would have fit nicely into the bands' glory year discographies just fine.
