2013 was a good year for me in terms of releases. I was a bit more active in checking out new releases, and I definitely uncover a few gems.

Of the ones you listed, I checked out Black Sabbath's new one and Abyssal.

Caladan Brood: Echoes of Battle (I discovered them by accident, not because of all the hype, I swear!)


Falkenbach: Asa


Summoning: Old Mornings Dawn


Darkthrone: The Underground Resistance


Wardruna: Yggdrassil (Runaljod, part 2/3)


Tristania: Darkest White


Graveland: Thunderbolts of the Gods


Sirenia: Perils of the Deep Blue


Raventale: Transcendence (it's from 2012, but I really love it)

This years letdown:

Burzum: Sôl austan, Mâni vestan
As a fan of Burzum's ambient work, this truly sucked... hard!

Whoa Funeralord, that's quite a list! Can't say I've even heard that much new music in 2013, let alone picked for the "best of" list. My list would be quite simple, in no particular order:

Tristania - Darkest White (duh)
Alice in Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
Queensryche - Queensryche

Also honorable mentions go to:
Deep Purple - Now What?!
Black Sabbath - 13 (maybe... it's more of acknowledging their importance, because their current vocalist is not my cup of tea)

woah, it's been forever since I last visited this site! but i want to share my 2013 list as well, though it's a bit late for that.

Tristania- Darkest White, of course.
Obscure Sphinx- Void Mother
Blood Ceremony- The Eldritch Dark
SubRosa- More Constant Than The Gods
The Ocean- Pelagial
Avatarium- Avatarium
Jex Thoth- Blood Moon Rise
Chelsea Wolfe- Pain is Beauty

And I'd say my taste in music has evolved because gothic/symphonic bands used to dominate my lists.
