Granted I still prefer Opus Eponymous more than this one, but it looks like its going to be another good album from them.
So I'm probably going to see if I can get a copy when its released (which might be later here....which bugs me).
I'll reserve my whole judgment for when I hear the album in full. Although I do rate the debut album 5 stars (as well as best of 2010), I still have to see what they do with the second release.

Voivod's Target Earth- Holy shit. This album is probably their best since Nothingface. And I do not say that lightly as I loved Outer Limits and Katorz.
It's an enjoyable record for sure and I don't see myself as a huge fan of the classic works so that's saying something. I need to find some more 2013 releases as I've only heard that, Mysterium and Straight Out of Hell so far. All are great releases for sure, though but I feel Manilla Road played a little too safe with their latest album apart from the last few tracks.

K, my Top 25 is finally done and up! Thoughts welcome!
To think two of my favourite releases from that year aren't even on your list. My two personal choices are Diablo Swing Orchestra's Pandora's Pinata and Threshold's March of Progress. Both albums I didn't get to listen to until the end of 2012, though so it seems like the better stuff from these years just creep up either when the year is about to close or the year after. Maybe 2012 wasn't such a slow year for metal as I originally thought it to be.
