Honorable Mentions Of 2012

Any albums that don't make it into my personal top twenty albums list (particularly those that were once on the list but were bumped off) should be mentioned too (unless they suck)! I will add any albums that made an impression on me, but weren't enough for my top twenty or were originally top twenty contenders that were bumped off in room for better albums.

1. Three Hour Ceasefire - Cry Havoc EP
2. Kreator - Phantom Antichrist
3. Baroness - Yellow & Green
4. Bilocate - Summoning the Bygones
5. Overkill - The Electric Age

MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
3. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
4. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
5. Reverence - The Asthenic Ascension

Behold... Another 2012 List - The Obscure Edition!

Albums that have intrigued me and ones that I've liked and loved from 2012, rather than EVERYTHING I've heard from 2012. One again, more emphasis on the obscure and the unknown.

2012 Musical Perusals

My list of favourites and interests for this year ordered roughly in descending order. My new years resolution is to branch out a bit and listen to new and unfamiliar genres, metal and non-metal.

Edit: Anything above about a 7/10 I'll keep here. Now with approximate rating in a .5 scale and ordered according to **replay value** i.e how often I listen to them. AND now with some comments, adding them gradually.

1. Enslaved - RIITIIR
2. Pharaoh - Bury The Light
3. Anglagard - Viljans Öga
4. Overkill - The Electric Age
5. The Foreshadowing - Second World

Beginner's Guide To Building A Prog Collection (Standards, And A Few Unorthodox Choices)

Limited to one album per band and only those featured on Metal Storm.
I feel these albums demonstrate certain qualities that can be of enjoyment to someone who is interested in avantgarde, experimental, extreme, fusion, jazz, post rock, and technical forms of metal.


1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Rush - Moving Pictures
4. IQ - The Road Of Bones
5. Opeth - Still Life
