Albums Of 2012

My final list for 2012. Still got stuff to check out but I think if it was gonna be good enough to rbreak my list I'd've heard it by now, and 126 albums is probably enough for one year.
No Absolutes In Human Suffering

So aggressive, exactly what I need when I have a bad day and want to listen to
something to wall-breakingly angry that it makes my ears bleed, and other peoples'
Dead End Kings

This album is gonna be a big help in trying to get Katatonia out of Opeth's shadow.
18Black Breath
Sentenced To Life

Was an early contender for AOTY but admittedly has slipped down. Mother Abyss is
still one of my tracks of 2012.
Dark Roots of Earth

Old School Thrash. And Gene Hoglan. That is all.
16Coheed and Cambria
The Afterman: Ascension

Yeah a late addition but I'm surprised at how much I like it.
15Bleeding Oath
Bleeding Oath

Only 2 songs but harks back to early Opeth which is good enough for me. Now fuck
off Bleeding Oath.
14Feed the Rhino
The Burning Sons

Kent hardcore mob gets more freedom for second album and release one hell of a

Rightful successor to Hollow Crown.

Unfortunately Candice has left the band, just as they looked like they were gonna
break out of France. Abandoning the nu metal for a more groove/metalcore oriented
sound paid off.
Dethalbum III

DIE FOR DETHKLOK!! Although humour has been left behind somewhat it's a big
musical progression.
10Napalm Death

They won't rest on their laurels and continue to find new elements to add to their
sound including clean choruses (The Wolf I Feed) and a guest appearance by one
John Zorn in Everyday Pox.
9 Periphery
Periphery II: This Time It's Personal

Djenty but more restrained than Periphery I was, and I think this helps it. Their first album never really clicked with me.
8 Gojira
L'Enfant Sauvage

I can't think of a single thing wrong with this album, but at the same time it's not
perfect, there's just something missing that stops it being higher in the list.
Koi No Yokan

Deftones. That is all.
6While She Sleeps
This Is The Six

Excellent riffs, good breakdowns, not generic as fuck metalcore. This is metallic
hardcore as it should be. Note: It's just a coincidence this is #6.


Screw you guys Max Cavalera is my idol and this is by far the best album he's made
with Soulfly since Dark Ages, best in general since Inflikted.
Les Voyages De L Ame

Atmosphere, beauty, melancholy, it's a wonderful album.
2Woods of Ypres
Woods V: Grey Skies & Electric Light

It's just such a great album to wind down to. Such a loss when David Gold died last
1The Devin Townsend Project

Culmination of almost everything Devy's done down the years. Pretty much the
definitive Devin Townsend album and almost perfect.
