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

My Top Albums Of 2012

My favorite albums of 2012.

2012 was a good year for Metal, or should I say for Metal of my taste. The year was packed with a lot of Doom Metal albums, and the big names like My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Anathema, Candlemass and Katatonia all came good.

My favorites Moonspell and Saturnus also came up with good albums. Epica was a bit of a let down, but still good enough for me. Then there were a couple of really good debut albums (Atoma and In The Silence top the list for me). So overall, it was a year where the hits just kept coming and music-wise I was never bored.

1. Saturnus - Saturn In Ascension
2. Swallow The Sun - Emerald Forest And The Blackbird
3. Moonspell - Alpha Noir / Omega White
4. My Dying Bride - A Map Of All Our Failures
5. Falling Leaves - Mournful Cry Of A Dying Sun

My Dying Bride Albums: Best To Worst

My ranking of all My Dying Bride's studio albums. Turn Loose The Swans and Songs Of Darkness, Words Of Light are the two best albums for me. I basically like every album a lot, except for For Lies I Sire. It's not bad obviously, but it was a disappointment for me, hence why it's below 34.788%... Complete. The last album being a very experimental/strange album, but it still contains a few great songs. I included ratings as well as the best (in my opinion of course) songs of each album.

1. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
2. My Dying Bride - Songs Of Darkness, Words Of Light
3. My Dying Bride - The Angel And The Dark River
4. My Dying Bride - The Dreadful Hours
5. My Dying Bride - The Light At The End Of The World
