KEEW 'best of 2013' edition (playlist for January 1, 2014)

For our first Kill Eat Exploit the Weak of the new year we decided to say goodbye to the old year. Our method? Running through our favourite records of 2013 - the metal we enjoyed most as well as a top Canadian metal mini-list and a few of our favourite not-quite-metal releases for a 'best of simulated meat' featurette.

This playlist represents our collective top 10 (there were lots of ties), our Canadian top 7, and three simulated meat* choices, with a fair bit of overlap between the lists.
