It's been a month already, so I think it's high time to see what people think already.  There aren't a whole lot of releases yet, but it'd be nice to have this thread now.

So far, Swallow the Sun's Emerald Forest and the Black Bird has my most immediate attention:

I've only heard four 2012 albums so far. Out of those Pharaoh's latest would be the best. 



People should start checking them out, their singer is Tim Aymer of Control Denied.

The only two 2012 releases Ive heard yet are:
.. Album Cover
.. Album Cover
 
 
Both are great albums. Especially the latter.

I think I've heard one (maybe 2) new metal albums so far this year.  I'll stay tuned to this thread to keep tabs on things, and if I need to play catch-up later on.

I've listened to my promo of that Hail Spirit Noir album once so far, sounded pretty cool.

So far . . .

This single :guitarbang2: . . .


I keep playing it over and over! Big smile

I HOPE that they actually release a new album, the time is ripe for POWERMAD.

Earth's new album dropped on Valentine's day.  Not quite as strong as Angels of Darkness Demons of Light I, but all's well that ends well I guess.

Wodensthrone are releasing a new album in April.  Looks like a predicted contender for album of the year.

Finally got around to Lunar Aurora's newest:


Rawer than Andacht and overall weaker, this one does benefit from having a more consistent atmosphere.

The album art fits the atmosphere perfectly: you are an owl soaring over a forest on the night of a full moon.

I'm kinda scared about this album.  People who got promos are saying that this album is going to get an Illud Divinum Insanus type backlash.

Has this year been totally awesome or am I just giving away too many high ratings?  I thought 2011 was the best year for metal in a while, but 2012 might be even better.
