Although 2013 did have some jewels to offer, 2012 felt like a stronger year. This year I’m presenting three different lists. A “Top 160 tracks”, where I’ve been rather generous with what I let in on the list. A “Top 20 tracks” with my personal crème de la crème from the former mentioned list and a “The year 2013″ list with all albums that I’ve listed during the year that passed (over 7000 tracks with a playtime of 561 hours). Here’s some namedropping of the stuff I enjoyed to the most during 2013: ARMAGEDON, BLOOD RED THRONE, BOMBUS, CHAOSDAEMON, COLOSSUS, DEATH TYRANT, DIABOLICAL, EVILE, EXHUMED, F.K.Ü., GORGUTS, HAIL OF BULLETS, HATE, IMMOLATION, INQUISITION, LEPROUS, NECROPHOBIC, OTARGOS, PORT NOIR, QUEST OF AIDANCE, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, SORCERY, SUFFOCATION, TURISAS and WITHERSCAPE.
