My top albums of 2012, only loosely ranked.
|1|| ||Godspeed you! Black Emperor|
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!
One of my favorite surprises from this year is a new album from these guys.
Been a fan of this guy since I heard material from Nostril. Absolutely love his music and
Tourt Petit Moineau is my favorite track form this year.
No Absolutes In Human Suffering
This is one of the most pissed off things I've heard all year.
Honor Found in Decay
This is my introduction to this band, gotta check the rest of their discog. The
beginning bit of Bleeding the Pigs is one of my favorite moments of this year.
|5||Witch Mountain |
Cauldron of the Wild
More people should love this, check out "Shelter"
This too is my introduction to this band, gotta say I love these guys now. Aaron
Weiss is now one of my favorite vocalists/lyrists.
Really atmospheric and it struck a chord with me. Would love more stuff like this.
Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs
I love this girl's music. This didn't hit me as hard as her previous release but its still
This swallows you, Favorite death metal release of this year granted that the genre
was a little weak this time around. They've already released something new this year
that I've got to listen to.
|10||Murder By Death|
Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon
its no Who Will Survive.... but its great and I'm a bit of a fanboy for this band.
|11||Black Breath |
Sentenced to Life
Dat title track. Got this on vinyl, lovely red color.
All Hail The Void
Hardcore. This needs more attention.
Not quite as good as Axioma to me.
"Gopher Guts" got me addicted to his music.
I am Gemini
I have a feeling this went a bit un-noticed this year, or maybe I haven't been paying
|16||Dark Time Sunshine|
Love the track with Aesop, and the final track is a highlight as well.
The Darkest Place On Earth Is The Mind of Man
Only 2 tracks but never the less a great EP also all of his material is free so thats
always a plus.
All We Love We Leave Behind
No surprise that this is here..
|19||Rise and Fall |
Note quite sure how much attention this got but its a great release.
Cancer 4 Cure
"To the mother of my enemy I just killed your son"
The only reason this is up higher is because its so goddamn daunting.
This is fucking disgusting
Yay! Free hardcore/.
|24||The Mars Volta|
Like Ten Stories did with mewithoutYou this introduced me to one of my favorite bands.
|25||Murder Construct |
I Liked this better than the Cattle Decapitation release
|26|| ||Loma Preita|
Emotive and raw
|27||Every Time I Die|
Partying is Such a Sweet Sorrow is great, banjo m/
I Feel like I should remember this better than I do
I dig it just not as much as any of their full releases that I've heard.
|30|| ||Be'lakor |
Of Breath and Bone
On their facebook they said that they're already working on new material.
Portal of I
This is bloated as hell but as fun listen. Could use some major trimming down though.

No Matter Where it Ends
Heavy as fuck
First time I've delved into jazz been meaning to check out the Niechec release
|34||Downfall of Gaia|
Suffocating in the Swarm of Cranes
This is great and deserve to be higher on this list.

Tree of Tongues
This is fun
|40|| ||Regina Spector|
What We Saw From the Cheap Seats
|41||Hail Spirit Noir|
This is also fun
