It's that time of the year again. With only two weeks of 2013 to go, share you top 20 albums that came out this year. All styles, not just metal.
As usual, try to provide one or more youtube links, if possible, a band info or facebook link and an album cover pic.


This time, I'll start from the bottom up.

20 - Sleeping Romance - Enlighten
Symphonic Metal
http://www.sleeping-romance.com/

This one is fairly recent, but i'm liking it enought to put in 20th position.
