1. Faal - The Clouds Are Burning
2012 9.99 Greatest mix of black,post and funeral doom ever made. It never gets boring and always surprises with something. Fast (blackened vocals and distorted guitars) sections are perfectly mixed with slower ones.
2. Krallice - Years Past Matter
2012 9.98 As times goes this album travels higher and higher. Classic of the post-avantgarde metal. Travel to another dimensions, it s so fucking complex that it took 2 years to get done with it. Track IIIIIIIIIIII (last one) is just grandiose and extremely powerful passage.
3. Bong - Mana-Yood-Sushai
2012 9.97 Bong paints very slow tracks performed in the best drone/doom metal tradition but with a oriental flavour and melody. The unusual thing about this is that drone metal may have perfect melody that keeps sounding in mind for hours after the record has been played. Sitar & Shahi Baaja of course is the epicenter of this album.
4. Process Of Guilt - Fæmin
2012 9.8 Angriest and darkest album of this year. Too much repetition (that usually is noticed as a weakness of this album) is actually it's strenght for true post/sludge lovers. It takes a lot more time to get in than it was with Erosion. Hugo has delivered again \m/
5. The Great Old Ones - Al Azif
2012 9.7 TGOO are the first french (quantitatively they outperform every country) in my list. Sound post-black performed with 3 guitars each of them evolving in different way and creating atmosphere, melody and rhythm.
6. Ahab - The Giant
2012 9.6. I was so surprised when I heard it first time. Is it really AHAB ? Ocean-doom-metal at it's best. As long as the bands like AHAB exist, metal will prosper.
7. Panopticon - Kentucky
