My Favorite Black And Doom Metal Albums Of 2012!

Its in alphabetical order by albums... Some albums on this list may or may not be the exact description of Black or Doom Metal or their subgenres. They just seem to fit for my taste and way I like my Black And Doom dosage. I'm sure some may say Les Discrets and Alcest and other bands on the list can't be Black or Doom because of their sounds and lyrical themes, but if their music gives me that darkness that let's say Watain or Gorgoroth give in Black Metal just without the Satanic lyrics and more of the emotions of Blackness and Doom then to me its Black Metal and the same goes to whatever Doom bands are on my list. If anyone checks out my list, thanks.

1. Mental Home - Угра
2. Forgotten Tomb - ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil
3. Profetus - ...To Open The Passages In Dusk
4. Narrow House - A Key To Panngrieb
5. A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays

Quadruple A: Apothecary's Album Art Anthology

I know I probably speak for a lot of people when I say that, very often, the artwork that a band chooses for a particular album can be the icing on the cake, essential to giving a visual depiction that tops off the overall aesthetic of the music. There are plenty of albums that I simply couldn't imagine listening to without staring, zoned out, to the big ball of glorious that is their cover art. Here are some such albums. In alphabetical order by band. Links to full images of the covers have been provided, as well as credits to the artists.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Absu - The Sun Of Tiphareth
3. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
4. Bathory - Blood Fire Death
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Fire Of Unknown Origin

2012 WIP

WIP !!!!

Quite opposite to 2011, which featured both freakingly awesome releases (Terra Tenebrosa, Lazuli, Thy Catafalque...) and crap that redefined crap (Lulu or Illud Divinum Isanus), 2012 was quite consistent. Sadly, consistently average. OK, consistently quite correct, but groundbreaking releases were few and far between...

1. A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays
2. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
3. Faal - The Clouds Are Burning
4. Klone - The Dreamer's Hideaway
5. Between The Buried And Me - The Parallax II: Future Sequence
