It’s time to get those devil horns out of hibernation and get ready to rock again in 2013. Some of metal’s top acts are making sure to get things cranked back up to 11 in clubs, theaters and arenas over the next few months and we want to know which tour that you most want to check out.

Veteran rockers Anthrax will team up with thrash icons Exodus, High on Fire, Municiple Waste and Holy Grail on the Metal Alliance trek, but they have plenty of competition for your metal attention. Cradle of Filth will headline a package tour featuring The Faceless, The Decapitated and The Agonist. Meanwhile, In Flames will get things rolling again by headlining a multi-band trek that also features Demon Hunter, All Shall Perish and Battlecross. And Hatebreed‘s forthcoming trek finds the band sharing the bill with Shadows Fall, Dying Fetus and The Contortionist.

There are also a number of bills that feature two main acts. For instance, The Devil Wears Prada and As I Lay Dying connect for a pretty impressive double bill of blistering licks. Down and Warbeast figure to be one of the hot tickets of early 2013. Every Time I Die has booked dates with the Acacia Strain. Thrash metal vets Testament team up with Overkill. And for those who like their metal a little proggy, then check out the Coheed & Cambria / Between the Buried and Me double bill. Plus, 2012′s breakout band Gojira is hitting the road with Devin Townsend.

In addition, the always excellent Meshuggah are crossing the pond for another North American tour to kick off the year. So there you have it — some of the bigger metal tours kicking off 2013. Here’s your chance to tell us which trek you’ll be lining up to get tickets for. Vote for your most anticipated 2013 metal tour in the Readers Poll below:
