2012 Resolutions: This Year I'll Listen To...


Old and new, classic and obscure, hard rock and extreme, primal and progressive... here are 12 releases (one per month) that I have heard of on MetalStorm and elsewhere that seem to be really really good shit and that I have somehow not listened to yet

My mission, if I accept it, is to listened to all of them before the end of the year.

Misplaced Childhood is one of the most emotional albums I've ever heard, I can guarantee you'll enjoy it.

I did listen to close to 150 of the metal releases of last year.

This list is to remind myself to look at the good things in past releases. If I have to keep with this year's output I unfortunately have to neglect the past a bit ^^

no it's not cause that means you'd only listen to 60 releases in a year. And that is not much at all.

Well, 60 of recommendations per year plus the new stuff plus the stuff you've been meaning to check out on your own is

Well, It's only been 3 / 4 years since I'm listening to metal "seriously". I cannot know all the classics ^^

I've listened to five new releases today. I mean old releases I haven't heard before. That's nearing the limit of my attention span.

Good picks, need to hear that Summoning myself.

Don't concern yourself with what others think is a lot or not a lot. Some people are fine with five albums a month and find it challenging enough, others listen to 50 albums a month and find it as challenging as the ones listening to five.

Yeah, you're absolutely right. It's all about enjoying the music. Personally, I need at least 6 spins to catch a riff or two, which makes it hard for me to really get more than 10-20 albums loved (And that's only in the summer, I can't listen that much in school days.), but I'm ready to do it as long as the albums give me eargasms at the end.
