#12  The Sword - Apocryphon
The Sword deliver the perfect swagger and defiance for the end of the world! Apocryphon is stoner rock at its' best.

#11 Beastwars - Beastwars
Sludgy. Doomy. It's like molasses oozing out of your speakers. You want a heavy dark tome for your last few hours on planet Earth? Beastwars! It's truly a heavy album.

#10 Swallow The Sun - Emerald Forest And The Blackbird
A beautifully haunting yet moving album. Every song flows with enchantment. Emerald Forest and The Blackbird is pure joy to listen to.

#09 Hexen - Being and Nothing
Hexen brings it with blistering guitars and a larger than life sound. Being and Nothingness exhibits amazing speed and unmatched technical skills.

#08 Doro - Raise Your Fist In The Air
Uplifting and inspiring is how you would describe Raise Your Fist In The Air. Doro delivers a fantastic straight ahead heavy metal album for the masses.

#07 Lacuna Coil - Dark Adrenaline
Dark Adrenaline has luscious harmonies and plenty of angst. The songs are catchy in a dark, sad, headbanging kind of way.

#06 Moonspell - Alpha Noir
Another winner from a seminal heavy band. Alpha Noir has the perfect blend of dark tomes, heavy music, and chilling lyrics.

And now your Top 5 Albums for the End of the World 2012!!!! Squeeeeeeeee

#05 Primal Rock Rebellion - Awoken Broken
Experimental rock and roll that never gets dull.  Awoken Broken defies genre placement. The guitars are bitchin, the vocals world class and the lyrics nothing short of amazing.

#04 Orange Goblin - A Eulogy For The Damned
Orange Goblin hits it out of the ball park yet again with a perfect album. It's got a Southern blood, sweat, and tears vibe. A Eulogy For The Damned is a good ol' bluesy ball busting romp through rock and roll.

#03 Bonded By Blood - The Aftermath
Classic thrash by SoCal's finest. The Bonded line up is tight and they deliver the goods with a totally head bang fest that is The Aftermath!

#02 Rival Sons - Head Down
Bluesy. Ballsy. 60s tinged. Rival Sons have sultry vocals, guitars with viv and verve, and attitude to spare. Head Down is soulful one moment and scorching hot the next.

And the number one album of 2012... the one disk you HAVE TO OWN for the end of the world....

#01 All Hail The Yeti - All Hail The Yeti
Hands down the best frakking album recorded this year. It's perfect from start to finish. All Hail The Yeti draws you in and doesn't let go.


So there you have it! Twelve of the best albums of 2012!!! If your world ends, you've got some damn good music to end it with. If you are around tomorrow... go buy 12 new albums that you are sure to enjoy!!!!
