Top 10 Metal Albums of 2013: Part 2
Gorguts - Colored Sands

In our first look at the top metal releases of 2013, we checked out oddities from rock-infused sludge mongers to groundbreaking shoegazing black metal. We enjoyed a comforting reminder that Motörhead will always be Motörhead, and weighed down our souls with the sonic violence of Nails and Exhumed.

6. Power Trip - Manifest Decimation

While the lion's share of contemporary thrash groups have been inadvertently pummeling a once beloved and revered genre into the realm of novelty by moshing for pizza and screaming about partying, Power Trip dropped Manifest Decimation this year.
