Hark, here be another band with a Clutch connection. Frontman Jimbob Isaaac has done artwork for ‘em, along with the likes of Red Fang, Kvelertak…
Well, the 2014 Juno Award Nominees have been announced, and us Hellbounders were keeping an eye out for the Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year category. Unlike their American counterparts, the Junos have done a great job of having some great acts win and get nominated in the past (Woods of Ypres won in 2013 and KEN Mode won the inaugural award in 2012).
Since Hellbound.ca is a Canadian-owned and operated metal publication, we do things a little bit different than most. While 2013 was coming to a close we asked all of our contributors to pick their Top Canadian metal albums of the year. We then tabulated up their responses and have created our fifth annual Top 10 Canadian Metal Albums writers poll.
Please check out what our writers feel to be the best Canadian metal albums released in 2013.
Hellbound’s writers compared notes on the top albums of 2013, and though we didn’t always agree, we did manage to identify some areas of collective appreciation. And so… (drum roll) Here are the best ten metal albums of 2013, according to Hellbound. (The math never lies!)

Back again by popular demand!
You keep asking when it’s coming back, so here it is. Here is what the staff of Hellbound.ca has been enjoying during the months of July and August 2013.
Hellbound Metal: “All the things that make Kylesa Kylesa are still present but the band has shed another layer of skin to expose a deeper sense of self, thus creating a highly dynamic and more sensitive album. The heavier sludge parts exude power and defiance while the more plaintive aspects display vulnerability.’
Well holy shit, it’s a Hellbound Radio playlist! Well, there actually hasn’t been a playlist for a while, as it has been nearly a month since we have done the show live. Never fear however, faithful listeners/followers, for Hellbound Radio returned on Sunday night with a show jam packed full of new releases.
