|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.
When in the right mood the lenght doesn't matter. This hits the right spots anyway.
Heavy, complex. Very good indeed.
Anxiety and Everything Else
|22||Veil of Maya|
Not nearly as good as their past release. But sick as a supermilf... (as always)
|21||The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation|
30 under 30 opened my eyes to this. You guys oughta open your eyes as well. Superfun post-rock/jazz/drone. Kinda godspeedy.
Just about the right length. Not as good as this years release but anyway.
Fun and interesting math-rock
Sweden represent. A bit sludge with that skramz... Yes please.
Short, focused and emotional. Just as I like my skramz.
"Oh yeah" as Pretty Purdie would say. Those polyrythms are lovely.
See 14 and add a hint of post-rock
Jazz and whatever in a perfect combo. Gets me dancing
|13||The 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.
Skamz-ish ep. This time with some post-rock influences a la Rinoa. That's always good.
Monolith of Inhumanity
Vox, shreds, slams, blasts. Good death metal, as simple as that.
This fusion gotta a hold on me. When you come and jam in plug I sometimes play this. Needs more love.
|9||This 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.
No Absolutes In Human Suffering
Before the hoes of infection. Sludgy, mathy and angry. Their best for sure.
|7||We Lost the Sea|
The Quietest Place on Earth
The sadness that comes with this album places this as high as 7.
Brings the heavy. All of the heavy. Bigtime. Post-Metal and how it's supposed to be done.
"Lotsa skramz here". Yeah deal with it bich, 2012 was a real good year for skramz.
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
|2||Birds in Row|
You, me, and the Violence
Almost as intense as No.1. Almost. Angry, intense but at the same time beautifully crafted.
Most intense release since 2010 and "An Age Among Them". Yeah it's n?-skramz... But pretty damn good n?-skramz.
