Biohazard - Reborn In Defiance (Rap/Crossover/Groove)
Back Moth - The Killing Jar (Stoner/Doom)
Corrosion Of Conformity - S/T (Doom/Stoner/Crossover)
Kreator - Phantom Antichrist (Thrash)
Jethro Tullish - Thick As A Brick 2 (Prog)
Lamb Of God - Resolution (Metalcore/Groove)
Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
Mars Volta - Noctourniquet (Prog)
Napalm Death - Utilitarian (Death/Grind)
Shadows Fall - Fire From he Sky (Metalcore)
Soulfly - Enslaved (Thrash/Metalcore)


This is all of what I've heard from 2012.
I liked it all.

Hmm, let's see, I'll try to remember:
Beyond the Bridge - The Old Man & The Spirit (LOVE)
Suspyre - Suspyre (LOVE)
Circus Maximus - Nine (LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE)
Sonata Arctica - When Stones Grow Her Name (Love - more respect to that band than ever IMO)
Affector - Harmagedon (LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE)
Flying Colors (um...sad face to that one)
Hemina - Synthetic (haven't quite decided what I think)
Dreamscape - Everlight (there are songs I really like and others I'm kinda meh about)
Status Minor - Ouroboros (kind of the same as above - a couple songs that blew me away)
Xandria - Neverworld's End (pretty darn cool)
Juggernaut - All Too Human (definitely like, not quite up to love...yet)
Fringe Kitchen - Unwritten Pages (I think I might love this one...not sure yet)

Pretty good year so far for Progressive Metal, I'll say.

Oh, and how could I forget:
Epica - Requiem For the Indifferent (lots of stars from me to that one too)

Yup, I'm having a good year.  In more ways than one!

Voices of Destiny - Power Dive (4.3)
Skylark - Twilights of Sand (3.9)
Lacuna Coil - Dark Adrenaline (1.8)

And the following have been heard in full at least once but not yet reviewed. I'll only give a draft score on the MMA system for these. Ratings could go up or down. No order this time:

Ecliptica - Journey Saturnine (3*)
Gorod - A Perfect Absolution (3.5*)
Spawn of Possession - Incurso (4.5*)
Borknagar - Urd (4.5*)
Flying Colors - Flying Colors (4*)
Hour of Penance - Sedition (4*)
Dark Empire - From Refuge to Ruin (4*)
Accept - Stalingrad (4*)
Syn Ze Şase Tri - Sub Semnul Lupului (4*)
Nachtvorst - Silence (4*)
Carach Angren - Where the Corpses Sink Forever (4.5*)
Order of Nine - Seventh Year of the Broken Mirror (4*)

I have also heard most of Summoning the Bygones by Bilocate but couldn't get through it in a single sitting. Probably 2* at most for that one at the moment.

You all laughed at me when I made an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my 2012 listens, but who's laughing now?! Evil Smile Geek

Overkill The Electric Age 5
Hour of Penance Sedition 5
Veil of Maya Eclipse 4.5
Xandria Neverworld's End 4.5
Primal Fear Unbreakable 4
Kreator  Phantom Antichrist 4
Psycroptic The Inherited Repression 3.5
Vengeance Crystal Eye 3.5
Spawn of Possession Incurso 3
Unisonic Unisonic 3
Sonata Arctica Stones Grow Her Name 3
Lethian Dreams Season of Raven Words 2.5
Freedom Call Land of the Crimson Dawn 2


Those are the metal albums which I've listened to enough to give a rating to (and they copied over quite nicely!).  As for the ones I haven't...that would probably take up a whole page.  If all goes well, I'll have a much bigger and better end-of-year list than I did for 2011, and hopefully I'll share the sentiments of my fellow collabs on more albums than I did last year.
