It’s that time of year again: when we tell all of you folks what our favorite albums of 2012 were. Well, like last year I have compiled a few different lists and I wanted to start off with this one.
Who doesn’t love split albums? I mean, getting not one, but two bands on a single record is a thing of beauty. I listened a shit-ton of split albums this year and it was a pain in my ass narrowing down to only ten splits. This is what I have come to think of as the best split releases of 2012.
#10 Nails/Skin Like Iron – Split (listen/listen)
#9 Caulfield/Vestiges- Split (listen)
#8 Thou/Hell – Resurection Bay (listen)
#7 Year Of No Light/Altar Of Plagues -Split (listen/listen)
#6 Water Torture/Thedowngoing – Split (listen)
#5 Full Of Hell/The Guilt Of… – Split (listen)
#4 Captain Three Leg/Cop Bar – C3LVSCB (listen)
#3 Deafheaven/Bosse-de-Nage – Split (listen/listen)
#2 Cara Neir/Ramlord – Split (listen)
#1 Barghest/False – Split
One of the most amazing black metal releases I have ever heard in my life. Barghest chime in with two unbelievable tracks while False takes up the b-side with their seventeen minute opus. So incredible. So fucking dark. So good.
