Sergeant D.’s Top Fifteen Metal (and Not-Quite-Metal) Albums of 2012
Why this dude has not blown the fuck up and become the next NITTI is beyond me because this shit goes hard as fuck.
This band is a bunch of kids from Illinois who sound exactly like EXCESSIVE FORCE and early BIOHAZARD. Do I need to say more?
Listen: “Colder Than Ever”
What I always wished I SEE STARS sounded like, with a little dash of FOREVER THE SICKEST KIDS thrown in for good measure.
Listen: “The Inconvenience”
I’ve been waiting for someone to bring back the late-period 18 VISIONS sound and boom, here it is. Sick.
Listen: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
These kids are future of deathcore, mark my words.
Listen: “Walk in the Glow“
My favorite Southern California moshcore band– like DYSTOPIA meets WINDS OF PLAGUE!
Listen: “Society’s Outcasts”
If you miss LIFE OF AGONY then you will love this band (ft Taylor from NAILS).
Listen: “Feed Your Disease”
Imagine the taste of crabcore and pop-punk together at last, and produced by Jonny Franck from Attack Attack. Every bit as awesome as it sounds!!
NO SOLOS. NO MELODY. JUST GUTTURAL PIT RIFFMENT #slam
Listen: “Alcoholic Encephalopathy”
Nobody knows who this mysterious hip hop artist is, but he somehow got KREAYSHAWN in his video. So advanced!!
Listen: “She Wana Fukk”
Hands down my favorite symphonic deathcore band!
Kreayshawn has the ability. She is good and lovely. I love her.
Listen: “Go Hard (La.La.La)”
Maybe this came out last year idk. But either way I can’t stop listening to it and it gives me chills every time “Quicksand” comes on.
Scott Vogel is right, they are fake hardcore. But they are really good fake hardcore.
Listen: “Engine 45”
1. City Lights — In It To Win It (InVogue)
The best pop-punk/easycore band of the last 5 years, as well as some of my top bros IRL. If you’re not into CL we’re not friends!!
Listen: “Hang Out”
