One of our favorite columns to do! Our yearly roundup of Favorites, Disappointments, and whatever category we feel like making up!

We've gathered up our thoughts on the hard rock/metal releases of 2013 and though you might not agree with our choices, we're getting the names of bands out. There are so many tremendous releases put out in this age of DIY metal that you may see names you missed, older bands you forgot existed or unknowns to look up and try out. If you see something you liked for one guy's picks, check out his others and keep supporting hard rock and metal!
