Its better late than never I suppose. To any fellow bloggers reading this; I would like to know how you manage to listen to so much music? Even now, mid February, there are dozens of albums on my radar from 2012 I have yet to hear. Perhaps the trick is to listening to only new music.
Without further ado, here it is......
p.s. I've linked each album title to the appropriate bandcamp/record label/amazon web page.
#20 Ice Dragon - Greyblackfalconhawk (Self-Released)
#19 Lumerians - Transmission from Telos Vol. IV (Permanent Records)
#18 Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory (Carpark Records)
#17 Christian Mistress - Possession (Relapse Records)
#16 John Talabot - ƒIN (Permanent Vacation Records)
#15 Swans - The Seer (Young God Records)
#14 Baby Woodrose - Third Eye Surgery (Bad Afro Records)
#13 From Beyond - One Year EP (Self-Released)
#12 Windhand - Windhand (Self-Released)
#11 Aqua Nebula Oscillator - Third (Tee Pee Records)
#10 Orange Goblin - A Eulogy for the Damned (Candlelight Records)
#9 Jess & the Ancient Ones - S/T (Svart Records)
#8 White Lung - Sorry (Deranged Records)
#7 Goat - World Music (Rocket Recordings)
#6 Beak> - >> (Invada Records)
#5 Creature with the Atom Brain - Birds Fly Low (Sacred Love/Waste My Records)
#4 Royal Thunder - CVI (Relapse Records)
#3 Horseback - Half Blood (Relapse Records)
#2 Early Graves - Red Horse (No Sleep Records)
#1 High on Fire - De Vermis Mysteriis (E1 Music)
Thoughts? As I mentioned in the open, I still haven't had a chance to hear the new Converge, Neurosis, Ancestors, and a lot of other albums that received generally positive reviews.
