The Best Metal Albums of 2012, As Chosen by Metal Musicians Themselves — Part IV

0

Every year year, MetalSucks asks musicians from across the vast spectrum of the metalsphere (or, in a few cases, the almost-metalsphere) what their favorite albums of the year have been. Death metallers, thrash metallers, black metallers, stoners, grinders, and djenters alike graciously contributed lists to MS, and we’ll be running them in groups of fourteen to seventeen musicians at a time twice a day for the whole week.

Below, check out the fourth group… we hope you enjoy seeing what some of metal’s heaviest hitters were into this year as much as we have!
