2013 was an epic year for metal. I can't think of a year in recent memory that saw so many awesome metal albums come out in a single year. Even narrowing this list down to 10 was very difficult. So put on that Amon Amarth shirt, shotgun a beer, throw up the metal horns and let's do this.
If you're not already an Amon Amarth fan and you consider yourself a metalhead, then you're missing out. While I wasn’t a fan of their last album, Surtur Rising, Amon is back with a vengance. Deciever of the Gods is right up there with Twilight of the Thunder God, Fate of the Norns and With Odin on Our Side. Try not banging your head. \m/
As of this writing, Amazon also has Deceiver and older Amon albums on sale. For $6, you best pick up this album.
I guess you can catch Amon on tour this summer with some other shitty metal bands at Mayhem Festival (if that's your thing). Personally, I'll wait for the headline tour.
