Best Of 2012

Getting pretty close to the end of the year here, so I figured I'd go ahead and start the list. Interested to see what people have been getting into. Here's a few of my picks in no particular order:

Ne Obliviscaris- Portal Of I
Wintersun- Time I
Katatonia - Dead End Kings
Alcest - Les Voyages De L'ame
Aquilus - Griseus
Be'lakor- Of Breath And Bone
Ahab - The Giant
Anathema - Weather Systems
Blut Aus Nord - 777: Cosmosophy
Dodsengel- Imperator
Dragged Into Sunlight - Widowmaker
Drudkh- Eternal Turn Of The Wheel
Les Discrets- Ariettes Oubliées…
Pallbearer- Sorrow & Extinction
Swallow The Sun- Emerald Forest And The Blackbird
Om - Advaitic Songs
Evoken - Atra Mors
Cloudkicker - Fade
Ash Borer - Cold Of Ages
Agruss - Morok
Hexen - Being And Nothingness
Winterfylleth - The Threnody Of Triumph
Kontinuum - Earth Blood Magic
Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
Neurosis - Honor Found In Decay
Oak Pantheon - From A Whisper

I see Winterfylleth on there but not Wodensthrone.

Automatically your list has become irrelevant [ ] because Winterfylleth is completely inferior in every single respect to Wodensthrone. Seriously, Wodensthrone makes them completely superfluous.

On the other hand though I agree with some of this.

There's a pretty huge list of stuff that I could list as at the very least good from this year.

I tried for 3 months to get into the new Wodensthrone, just wasn't feeling it. Every moment of brilliance seemed to be negated by minutes of contrived black metal conventions. Just my opinion, of course

inverloch - dusk\subside
anhedonist - netherwards
aldebaran - embracing the lightless depths (i think is what it was called)
encoffination - o hell, shine in thy whited sepulchres
wrathprayer - the sun of moloch
pallbearer - sorrow and extinction
grave upheaval\manticore - split

not much else i've heard from this year, don't think. have yet to get around to BAN, ahab, and a few others mentioned. forgive me if anything i said is from last year.

also, as much as i really, really wanted to love dragged into sunlight, i found it to be a huge let down. i guess it's fairly good, in it's own right, has a few really cool bits, but next to hatred for mankind, it's lackluster and mediocre at best.

As much as I like Katatonia I'd dispute Dead End King's being best of the year, no where near in the same ball park as Night is the New Day

...and Night was vastly inferior to Great Cold Distance... yet, still, DEK was a solid release.

I also 2nd the votes for Testament & Swallow the Sun

I actually still like Swallow the Sun and honestly Emerald Forest is one of their weakest releases.

I think the Neurosis album was the only metal album from this year I got into. Never got round to the Om or Alcest albums and I didn't enjoy Faustian Echoes all that much.

Can't really think of any off the top of my head. The bands I listen to that released albums this year released pretty mediocre albums.

The new Revenge album was pretty killer, even without Helmkamp. Some other stand outs for me include:

Nocturnal Vomit - Cursed Relics
Ataraxy - Revelations of the Ethereal
Drawn and Quartered - Feeding Hell's Furnace
Vomitor - The Escalation
Hellbringer - Dominion of Darkness
Witchrist - The Grand Tormentor
Ignivomous - Contragenesis
Gospel of the Horns - Ceremonial Conjuration
Pseudogod - Deathwomb Catechesis
Trial - The Primordial Temple
