So with the end of 2012 we have my top 5 picks of the year.
In no particular order we have:
Gojira - Le'Enfant Sauvage
Revocation - Teratogenesis
Parkway Drive - Atlas
Alcest - Les Voyages De L'âme
Black Breath - Sentenced to Life
I unfortunately didn't get to review as many albums from 2012 as I had wished, but that doesn't mean I haven't listened to a lot of releases I didn't get to review. I have a few bands that in my mind deserve mention and praise.
The Faceless - Autotheism
Caliban - I Am Nemesis
Of my top 5 the only one I didn't get to review was Gojira's Le'Enfant Sauvage. This was a really impressive album and I have been listening to it a lot lately. Every track is great, even the instrumental The Wild Healer. Anyways that's it for me, lets hope 2013 was as strong as 2012!
