The Best Metal Releases of 2012, according to Invisible Oranges & BBG


In case you missed it, check out BBG aka Fred Pessaro’s ‘Year in Heavy’ which pretty much sums up our thinking on metal in 2012. Then head over to Invisible Oranges to compare how they rated this year’s metal releases, though note: as of this post they’re only up to #21 (1-20 to be posted before the end of the year). You can check out Decibel’s take on 2012 as well.

Spoiler: Fred put Neurosis‘s new one, Honor Found In Decay, at #12 (Sanford Parker loved it too). Catch Neurosis at Emo’s in February. Updated Neurosis dates are listed below…
