Let's review the metal albums of 2012 here.
I do NOT give a sh*t if you don't like metal.
I do NOT care if you don't think it's music.
I could honestly NOT care less if you don't understand metal.
Please do NOT come here and say that you don't like, understand, listen or care about metal. WE DON'T CARE.
It's like if somebody came to the "Canucks Talk-forum" and said that they hated hockey.
This isn't a thread where you're supposed to discuss if metal is music. Or if you like growl/screems. It's a thread about metal albums made in 2012. Doesn't really matter if it's glam, death, math or 70's metal.
These are mine:
Soulfly - Enslaved
Desn't sound like Soulfly; too fast, too modern, not as primitive as the other Soulfly albums. If Cavalera had released it from a band that wasn't Soulfly I think I would have liked it. Also, seeing them live with the current line up is the most intense thing you'll ever do! "Gladiator" is (to me) the best song Cavalera has written since "Roots, Bloody Roots"
Lamb of God - Resolution
Pretty good, not at all as good as Ashes of the Wake or Sacrament, but there are some good songs, "Desolution" is great, "King Me" is super epic, "Ghost Walking" is cool, but the other songs are mediocre.
Meshuggah - Koloss
This album was really good, "Break These Bones Whose Sinews Gave it Motion" is super good, "Swarm" is awesome as well.
Miss May I - At Heart
Mediocre. Not at all as good as Monument or Apologies are for the Weak. "Hey Mister" is by far the best song, and it's not all that good.
Caliban - I am Nemesis
Their best album to date. Classic metalcore; "We are the Many" and "Memorial" are really, really good metalcore songs, and the breakdown of "Memorial" is EPIC!
Gojira - L'Enfant Sauvage
Pretty good, very progressive, very heavy.
