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

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 final group… we hope you enjoy seeing what some of metal’s heaviest hitters were into this year as much as we have!

Pete Ponitkoff, Agenda of Swine

[Editor’s note: While we appreciate Mr. Ponitkoff’s contribution to these list, we couldn’t really make heads or tails of what the what he sent us. Instead of album titles, he generally included URLs for Facebook pages. He chose a lot of ties, despite our request that the lists contain no ties. And in some case, he seems to have chosen bands’ entire discographies, despite when any of their albums were actually released. We don’t want to short change Mr. Pontikoff, but we also aren’t going to wade through all this. So here it is, unedited. Our apologies.]
