Yesterday, we announced number 2 in the got-djent.com top 20 releases of 2013. Today, we're announcing who took the 1st place. Most people will already have figured this out by now, so to keep things interesting, we're also announcing the top 10 of freely downloadable releases of 2013. Once again, we want to thank everyone who participated and shared their favourites with us, as well as all the bands who put out tons of awesome music for us to enjoy!
In a few weeks, we'll also posting our editors' picks of 2013, to highlight some awesome albums that might have slipped under the radar. Stay tuned for that!
In the past few weeks, all registered users could pick their five favourite djent releases of 2013. Thanks to everyone who shared their favourites with us. A lot of albums came out this year, so picking just five was a challenging task! In total, 825 people participated. They voted for 272 different releases, out of 593 that were eligible.
Just like the years before, we will be spreading the results across a number of posts, to make things a bit more interesting. We will announce part of the results every day for a week. Today, we're announcing positions 20 through 11. Tomorrow, we will be announcing positions 10 through 6. And from then on, we'll be announcing one more album per day, for five days, until we've reached number one.
More than 40% of the releases in our database can be downloaded for free, so we are also including a top 10 of freely downloadable releases, which will be revealed at the end, together with number one. Stay tuned for that!
Without further ado, we present to you the first part of the got-djent.com top 20 of 2013, according to our users.
