Jan-Feb - A Heavy Metal Retrospect

Hey folks! Just some musings about my fav albums this year.

1. 1. The Omega Experiment - S/T
2. Stellar work done on this album, the fact it was done entirely independently just goes to show how the role of record labels is becoming less and less a priority for new bands. That being said, if I was working for a record label I'd be bending over backwards to sign these guys. This album also happens to reak of Townsend influence. Seriously, replace Dan's vocals with Devin's and I would be positive this would be the next DTP record. Powerful and progressive, definite contender for album of the year.

2012 Dreamy Albums Milena Considers A 7.5+ (update 26.12)

Other good lists with some melodic metal in them:
strade's - R'Vannith's - Unhealer's - Lkoturnindrin's

Will only add 7.5+ releases, so this won't be a gargantuan list... last year saw maybe forty or so releases I thought of as 7.5+'s, a lot of them rated only at the end of the year, and some not rated at all due to the extensiveness of pre-MSA listening sessions... if you want to stalk my "bad" ratings, they're all in my album votes.

1. Enochian Theory - Life... And All It Entails
2. Dissona - Dissona
3. Big Big Train - English Electric 1
4. Headspace - I Am Anonymous
5. Beyond The Bridge - The Old Man And The Spirit

A PBR 12 Pack Of Popular Hipster Black Metal.

Orthodoxy is for morons who cannot compose or create themselves and need to copy the blueprint of someone else. Daring to be different might make your music stand apart. Daring to be different and standing apart might draw more people to your music. Daring to be different might make you more popular - and thus more hipster. So grow some facial hair, put on an ironic shirt, grab a PBR, and listen up.

1. Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit
2. Alcest - Écailles de lune
3. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - Sect(s)
4. Darkspace - III
5. Darkthrone - Circle The Wagons
