Guest List from Fenriz of Darkthrone

I hate to do lists but everybody digs ‘em.

VOMITOR - The Escalation. Sounds like Sodom obsessed by cruelty married the incubus (Florida) 7”
GOAT - World Music. Freshest new thing I heard all 2012. And in the 2010’s for that matter.
HOUR OF 13 “333”. One of the few bands I feel Darkthrone is strangely akin to. Brilliant and worthy.
CHRISTIAN MISTRESS - Possession. Old metal with a different feel. Ballsy and I supported them LONG TIME
NEKROMANTHEON - Rise, Vulcan Spectre. It’s just so damn solid, and I adore Arild’s vocals and leads.
DEATHHAMMER - Onward To The Pits. No surprise there, been loving their sound since the demos.
GOLD - Interbellum. Shave away the first song and from there on the songs are incredibly strong.
VANDERBUYST - Flying Dutchmen. Shave away the first AND 3 more songs and you got killer hard rock!
ROYAL THUNDER “CVI”. How solid can a band get? Dynamic as hell and one the best bass drum sound
SHIPWRECKED - The Last Pagans. Totally atypical ‘79’84 punk/hc from Norway! I can’t believe it!

HONROABLE MENTIONS: TURBONEGRO, HOODED MENACE, AURA NOIR, WITCHCRAFT, YEAR OF THE GOAT, EL DOOM & THE BORN ELECTRIC, VETTER, BURZUM, THE SABBATH ASSEMBLY, GRAVEYARD and did Jess and the ancient ones also deliver a full length this year?

Guest list from Joel Sundin of Entrench

(This is just for fun, not final, and not necessarrily in this particular order.  Music shouldn't be ranked.  These are 10 albums I've enjoyed a lot this year and will for years to come.  Feels kind of bad to do this list since there are a lot of other albums that should be on it, but aren't.  But who gives a damn?  Just for fun!)
