The month is SO packed with new metal releases that it's going to require 2 parts to cover it all. These are my top 10 metal albums of the FIRST HALF of October 2023, as always featuring everything from wild black an death metal to hardcore and deathcore. We've got dbeats, we've got blastbeats, we've got grooves and tremolo picking. Hell, we've got hand drums and throat singing. Stick around and check them all out if you think you can handle it.
