Treblezines Top 10 Metal Albums Of 2012
updated about 1 month ago
Assembling a list of the year's best metal albums grows particularly difficult when it's a year like 2012, stacked full of legends and reliably amazing bruisers. Not that there weren't some amazing debuts as well (sup, Pallbearer). Nonetheless, 2012 had a lot of big names come up from their crypts to summon some serious thunder. Neurosis, Pig Destroyer, Converge, Baroness, Deftones — the list goes on and on, and that's even before getting into some metal titans from way back, like Angel Witch.
Suffice it to say, it was a good year for metal. Our list has its share of expected names and upsets, and there were some omissions we hemmed and hawed over, but we can at least say this: these 10 albums kept us rocking out well into winter.
