Now that would be stellar, but I won't get any hopes up until I hear something official.

FOR THE ONES PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED

Amorphis - Rarely disappoint me
Fen - Also hoping for something darker
Alcest - I hope the metal elements aren't completely dropped
Darkthrone - I enjoy the non black metal stuff a lot and am eager to hear what they do next
Dark Tranquillity - Bit disappointed with the last one but still love them
Wintersun - Like Time I a lot
Immolation - Really hoping for this
!.T.O.O.H.! - Rad A Trest was amazing but it has been a long time
Summoning - WILL BE AMAZING
Myrkgrav - Another one that has been a while in the making, very excited though
Deeds Of Flesh - Damn the teaser is great!
Wardruna - Loved the atmosphere of the first one
Stratovarius - Last few were awesome
Finntroll - Last one was a lot more interesting than the previous one, can't wait

Unmentioned ones are

Meads Of Asphodel - A concept that is a bit worrying for me, but no doubt will be interesting

Herne - The debut was excellent. For the Pagan black metal fans out there, this is from the debut

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ0PsdMGFJM

Symbel - Finally coming out with new stuff. A lot of variety in his work (also 1/2 of Herne) "dirty and pagan choral vocals over a backdrop of tube guitars and untriggered drums, with black metal, doom and punk influences" Here is a song from the new album

http://www.kingpenda.com/ Just stream it in the player

Jaldaboath - Ex-member of Meads Of Asphodel project of silly Python-esque metal. Here is a fucking great video by them

New Vektor would be very nice. I've fallen out of the thrash metal loop lately, and a new album from them would be great.

I had almost entirely forgotten about Zetro's new band Hatriot until hearing a snippet of one of their songs a couple of days ago. Their debut Heroes of Origin will be released January 25th and after hearing these little previews in the link posted, this could actually be much better than I initially expected.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AFT ... 24&sr=1-10

Souza sounds like himself, of course, and there's certainly Exodus-isms in the riffs but I'm thinking that's generally the purpose of the band anyway. Much more thrash going on here than, say, Testament's or Kreator's latest by comparison albeit being a big fan of the latter.

Someone claiming to be Maniac Neil says in the comments to this youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWz7QqoA68Y) that Frightmare is NOT done yet and that he will focus on a new Frightmare album after the next Blood Freak album. Hopefully that means a new Blood Freak album in 2013, and maybe Frightmare in 2014!

Alcest has a new record due in 2013, which is being recorded in Iceland at Sigur Ros' studio and is said to be abandoning metal elements altogether. The latter is fine with me as, I've always thought that most of the BM elements were the weakest elements in their overall sound. But the former has me excited at the thought of a whole new dimension to their sound as well as the thought of any potential Alcest/Sigur Ros collaboration (although nothing is confirmed at this time).


If Jonsi makes a guest appearance on vocals, I will squee like a little girl.

Other than that, I'm eager to see what Portal, Mithras, ColdWorld and Stratovarius have to offer. My Bloody Valentine, too... but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Woah... I'm gonna have to check some sources and see if there's any truth to that because a new Frightmare would be incredible. Hopefully it'll be better than the last Blood Freak album...

Yeah, I like some of Blood Freak's older material but ultimately it just feels like a watered down Frightmare. Both Frightmare albums are insanely well-written and well-executed

Cosigned on both Frightmare albums being top notch. I like all Blood Freak's stuff up to Mind Scrapper, which I only really cared for a couple tracks on (Scared Stiff and Pink on the Inside), but I thought their first 2 albums were the best where there was no comparison to Frightmare at all, just solid overly simple grind/goregrind.

Not sure if this is old news or not but its news to me. I just read in Decibel magazine that Exhumed are currently in the studio. During the interview they said that Was Caley left the band leaving the majority of the song writing responsibilities to Matt Harvey who wrote the better part of Slaughtercult and Anatomy Is Destiney. They did not release any information regarding the album title or the titles of any songs but the new album is being produced by Ryan Butler who has worked with Misery Index and Landmine Marathon.

Timeghoul vinyl comp, with extra tracks and goodies. looking out for some of the things mentioned here, but i honestly couldn't give less of a fuck about them when it comes down to it-as long as i get my hands on some Timeghoul, nothing else matters, i'll be good when the bombs drop

Last I recall is that they wrapped up recording sometime over the course of last month. 15 tracks to include an intro and an outro. That's true that Wes left so Matt wound up writing and tracking the album himself but Bud Burke, whom previously played bass, is back as the second guitarist and contributed solos of his own. I'm of the minority that Anatomy... is really good and that Slaughtercult is generally my starting point for the band, so naturally I expect them to continue to progress along the path that All Guts... indicated.

Thanks for the update. Yeah I did read about the bass player switching to Guitar. I like everything Exhumed so far. I am very much looking forward to the new album. All Guts No Glory was good but a bit under welming. By no means was it a bad album. Maybe the cleaner production took away some of the raw energy. Hopefully they have really stepped it up this time around.

Looking forward to the sophomore album Relentless by NY's Disfigured Dead. Their debut, Visions of Death, was a safe but solid homage to first-wave U.S. and Swedish death metal that checks all the right boxes and was an appropriate release for the time among similar acts on Hells Headbangers Records. Those interested can stream and purchase the album digitally here:

http://hellsheadbangers.bandcamp.com/al ... s-of-death

The new album, to be released through Sevared Records next year, looks to up the ante with more riffs and slightly more complicated ones at that per song. Nothing that approaches current tech bands of today as that's not the intent, but more reminiscient of what a number of Floridian and Dutch bands were doing in the mid-'90s. The vocals, however, are FAR more brutal than before to match the intensity. A few of the songs can be streamed through their Reverbnation page here:

Some juicy Manilla Road coming for 2013. Mysterium, the reissues of Spiral Castle, Atlantis Rising and Metal.
I hope we see another Hellwell album near the end of 2013.

I'd like to see a new Pain Of Salvation album, but I know that Clean (live album) will be coming out, so that's cool.

Oh, and I hear Subterranean Masquerade are finally making that sequel to Suspended Animation Dreams. Awesome.

I'm really looking forward to Portal and Immolation releasing new material, but, I gotta say, for me, 2013 is all about Wormed. :hyper: Their first album is one of my all-time favourites, and I can't believe just how long it's been; that EP didn't satisfy me in the least. I really hope this new one will continue the shattering, awe-inspiring heaviness, for lack of a better word, that still blows me away every time I hear Planisphaerium. :headbang:

The Portal track that was released a couple of weeks ago - Curtain - sounds really promising; can barely contain my excitement there.

Wormed can be an acquired taste, especially if you're not too fond of that style of death metal. I have to admit that I really quite like brutal death; the only thing that holds me back from getting into that sub-genre more is the lyrical imagery (as death metal fan and horror movie afficionado, I have a high gore tolerance, but even I can't stomach some of that stuff), so any band that - like Wormed (or Detrimentum, who I hope will record new stuff soon) - achieves the sound without the gore appeals to me immensely.

I can understand if the lyrical themes are too much, and more and more brutal death bands are growling about more existential stuff these days. I hope Wormed can capture my interest this time around.
