Top 25 Of 2012

I've always been slow on these things. But I've had time to analyze 2012 unlike I've had with 2013. Here goes! rP.S 2012 seems to me as a much better year for music than 2013.
25Hammock
Departure Songs


When in the right mood the lenght doesn't matter. This hits the right spots anyway.
24In Trenches
Sol Obscura


Heavy, complex. Very good indeed.
23Dead Swans
Anxiety and Everything Else


No bullshit-skramz
22Veil of Maya
Eclipse


Not nearly as good as their past release. But sick as a supermilf... (as always)
21The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation
Egor


30 under 30 opened my eyes to this. You guys oughta open your eyes as well. Superfun post-rock/jazz/drone. Kinda godspeedy.
20Pelican
Ataraxia/Taraxis


Just about the right length. Not as good as this years release but anyway.
19You Slut!
Medium Bastard


Fun and interesting math-rock
18Grieved
Samaritans


Sweden represent. A bit sludge with that skramz... Yes please.
17Beau Navire
Lumens


Short, focused and emotional. Just as I like my skramz.
16 Gojira
L'Enfant Sauvage


"Oh yeah" as Pretty Purdie would say. Those polyrythms are lovely.
15Jizue
Novel


See 14 and add a hint of post-rock
14Portico Quartet
Portico Quartet


Jazz and whatever in a perfect combo. Gets me dancing
13The Blue Letter
Love is not Control


This little beast comes in a sludgy package. But in reality it's a sludgeskramz, that's a term now.
12Acres
Acres


Skamz-ish ep. This time with some post-rock influences a la Rinoa. That's always good.
11Cattle Decapitation
Monolith of Inhumanity


Vox, shreds, slams, blasts. Good death metal, as simple as that.
10Snarky Puppy
Ground UP


This fusion gotta a hold on me. When you come and jam in plug I sometimes play this. Needs more love.
9This Gift is a Curse
I, Gvilt Bearer


Pretty cheesy with a v istead of a u. Brought a review for this. A dark scary journey this is.
8Gaza
No Absolutes In Human Suffering


Before the hoes of infection. Sludgy, mathy and angry. Their best for sure.
7We Lost the Sea
The Quietest Place on Earth


The sadness that comes with this album places this as high as 7.
6Amenra
Mass V


Brings the heavy. All of the heavy. Bigtime. Post-Metal and how it's supposed to be done.
5Loma Prieta
I.V.


"Lotsa skramz here". Yeah deal with it bich, 2012 was a real good year for skramz.
4Converge
All we Love we Leave Behind


Speakin of blue... "Coral Blue" as well as the rest of this album is super sweet. Probably my favourite Converge. Yeah I said it, this is better than Jane Doe.
3 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


Came out of the blue and took my breat away
2Birds in Row
You, me, and the Violence


Almost as intense as No.1. Almost. Angry, intense but at the same time beautifully crafted.
1Vales
Clarity


Most intense release since 2010 and "An Age Among Them". Yeah it's n?-skramz... But pretty damn good n?-skramz.
