bring me the horizon

There’s Something Lurking in the Show

Yeah, we realize Pig Destroyer doesn’t really sit right next tot he other bands this week.  It was a slow week and we worked with what we had. (The next two weeks are filled with some anticipated albums.)  We’ll just chalk it up to the show’s usual diversity.  You’ll also probably be thanking us for throwing it in there considering a couple of the albums it’s between…I know we were thanking ourselves.

It’s that time! Time for Brian and Nick to share their top albums for 2013!  And this year, there are more than ever!  After individually making lists of more than 20 albums (beyond 20 was largely undecided when they worked on the collective list), the combined lists brought a Top 25!! There were so many great albums this year, it was hard not make a list this long.  Realistically, it should be even longer because there are even more great albums that didn’t make the cut because of math, but there was just not enough time (and energy) to go further.

Boy, do we have an epic episode for you!  Not only do we have a record six albums shoved in here, but i think this ends up as our longest episode thus far.  There’s a polarizing review of the new Killswitch Engage album! That’s followed up by the long-awaited (by long I mean two weeks) review of the raved-about-by-Kyle Russian Circles!  And then after that, Kyle decides he has had enough and jumps ship! There’s a Sideshow Case!  There’s Melodic Death about aliens!  There’s Polka!  Wait…what?  Yeah.  Polka.  It happens.

Also, make sure you stay tuned to the site for a contest announcement of how you can win your self a copy of Killswitch Engage’s Disarm the Descent!  And, as always, feel free to share your own thoughts on any of the albums in the comments!
