Metal Kaoz Top 10 Albums for 2013

Yup, it's that time of the season again when your favorite webzines storm the net with tons of lists claiming that they've found the year's tops of the tops... Well, METAL KAOZ HQ, faithful to the tradition that began almost 3 years ago, can't say 'no' to its readers, so here are the best releases for 2013 that remained inside our CD/LP players most of the listening time, presented separately for each editor. It seems that 2013 was a very productive year for our beloved Metal music, even though many releases coming from this genre's leviathans didn't manage to get a spot to our editors' top10s.

Let's not waste any more time; here are the best of the best, 2013's top10 for every editor of the mighty METAL KAOZ crüe, and we hope you discover some new stuff here that you enjoy:
