Absolutely fantastic month!!! There should be something for everyone that claim to be into metal in this months summary. From the more modern tunes of ADEPT, AMARANTHE and SYSTEM ANNIHILATED to oldschool attacks from the likes of NECROCURSE, TAAKE and DEVIL. Amongst my personal favorites this month you’ll find bands such as: THE AMENTA, CHAOSDAEMON, DEATH TYRANT and IN VAIN.
As of this month the monthly summary will be published on the 7th of every month. I’ve noticed that I miss out on some albums since it can take a while until some titles appear on Spotify. So from now on, mark the 7th of every month as D-day. February had some nice shit to offer with new releases from THE CRESCENT, DEVOURMENT, ENFORCER, ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW, MOURNING BELOVETH, SAXON, SOILWORK,, SUFFOCATION and more….
2012 was for me personally an insane year when it comes to new quality releases from both established and new & upcoming artists/bands. I felt that I had to make the “Top 100″ a “Top 150″(ish) this year in order to squeeze in as much good shit as possible. I ain’t gonna namedrop all 145 artists in the list, but here’s some of my absolute favorites of 2012: ANAAL NATHRAKH, COLDWORKER, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT (THE), ENSLAVED, GOJIRA, HELLTRAIN, KATATONIA, KHONSU, NIDINGR, OFERMOD, SKELETAL REMAINS and WOODS OF YPRES. Either enjoy the playlist below with my favorites of 2012 or check out the playlist with “all” albums of 2012 (over 5000 tracks).
