Musical adventures of 2012

Despite being rather bumpy year with its lows and highs, musically, it was one of the dense years ever for me. Most important thing is of course that I’ve fully switched to vinyl and obtained around 90 records during this year. So it’ll be hard for me to select the best releases but I have to keep the tradition. I’ve discovered several bands thanks to this media and this is what makes all this vinyl business attractive. I’m still into certain neofolk bands, but metal is what matters for me these days. There are several new bands that are truly bringing new life into the genre and of course the’re labels that support these bands and makeВ beautifulВ releases which in the end makes me crave for them. So here’s the list, not in particular order, just top eleven of 2012:

Horse Latitudes – “Awakening”
Hooded Menace – “Effigies of Evil”
The Devil’s Blood – “The Thousandfold Epicentre”
Diocletian – “War of All against All”
Saturnalia Temple – “Aion of Drakon”
Witchrist – “The Grand Tormentor”
Ride for revenge – “Under The Eye”
Portal – “Outre”
Napalm Death – “Utilitarian”
Corrupted – “El mundo frio”
Wardruna – “Runaljod – Gap Var Ginnunga”

P.S. Tops of 2011 and 2010 if you’re wondering ;)
