Okay,

So here are my :guitarbang2:  !!!TOP 30 METAL Albums of 2012!!:guitarbang2:  Thank you by the way for letting me take part late in the game.
I have a small comment on the choices at the Playlist Page.
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feature=edit_ok&list=PL2DU3TBNutEdcwMdqDXHeZ6OnkIl0Kapa

Basically I listen to all these CD's on a regular basis depending on mood. But the Top 10/15 I listen to
every-other day as they are completely stuck in my head Wink.

I'm still getting into a handful of others, but its fair to say these are the ones that will stick.


Note: I'll re-edit this post with the List in Text soon, otherwise please enjoy (I hope) my Playlist. I'm sure mine is more "Mainstream" than others Embarrassed.

Just that fact that they slipped a Marilyn Manson track in there, makes the whole thing a freak show. The man hasn΄t been relevant since the turn of the century. I saw him live last year and boy did he look like a man who wanted to be anywhere but there playing on that stageConfused

I actually liked Marilyn Manson in the late nineties. I just think the quality of his releases have gone down badly since then and his enthusiams on stage is non-existent.
