Top 15 Metal Albums, May 2013
by Chuck Eddy | May 2, 2013
This month's metal roundup totally runs the gamut -- everything from a long-overdue reissue of classic early '70s stoner rock (Dust) and the latest from some old-schoolers who formed just a few years after that (Manilla Road) to metalcore beloved by pissed-off modern-day young folks (Killswitch Engage, Sevendust). In between are metallic styles ranging from "prog" (Intronaut, MindMaze) to "alt" (Rob Zombie) to "black" (Rotting Christ) to just plain regular (Adrenaline Mob, Paradox) to some combination thereof (Ghost B.C., Kvelertak, Volbeat) to stretching-metal's-definition-a-bit (Crime and the City Solution, Mudhoney). Something for everybody, and for everybody's grandpa, too!
