Best albums of 2012!!!!! This year was a great year for metal. Tons of bands from many different genres put out incredible music this year. I was surprised by the swarm of submissions I got this year and many of the lesser known bands scored really high. There is a mix of well known bands and “who the hell is that?”, be sure to check these albums out if you haven’t yet.
Well here you go, the top 10 albums of 2012!
The weekend ain’t long enough and life just isn’t fair sometimes. Filth. Disgust. Corruption. Lost Faith. The American dream. A failed promise. Raped Innocence. Rise and Grind.
Today’s theme is more brutal slam than grind.
Gore. Can’t wait for the new Cattle video.
Well it finally happened, a Monday morning where I forgot to start my ritual and went straight to work. So today is dedicated to the fuckers who don’t need to be up early. Wake up at noon and turn up the volume knob and jam out to some Nasum, Suntorn, Murder Construct and some good ol Dying Fetus!!!! Enjoy and welcome to your work week. Fuckin rinse/repeat bullshit.
It’s definitely a special RISE AND GRIND this morning considering HEADBANG OR GTFO HAS SURVIVED ONE FULL YEAR!!!! How did I celebrate? I drank one beer and played video games. Fuck yes! Rock the fuck out this morning and listen to Converge, Insect Warfare, Trash Talk, Gallows, Murder Construct and Dying Fetus. Wake the fuck up and RAGE!!!! Kick today’s ass and never look back. A major thanks to anyone who spent more than 10 seconds on here and actually read some of the things I posted. Thank you to the Facebook fans! Thank you American Aftermath, Heavy Blog Is Heavy, Metal Review, Metal Titans, MetalSucks and Metal Injection. Thank you to all of the PR people I’ve worked with and the tour managers that were cool. A HUGE thank you to the labels and bands that sent me music and worked with me. You’re all kick ass in my book. Headbang. \w/
Nothing better than rolling out of bed and letting that morning stream go! So here are some album streams that have been released recently. First off we have the new Gojira streaming at The Music, an Australian music site I’ve never heard of. Hey, congrats on getting that exclusive stream though! Enjoy the traffic boost!
If you’re wanting to calm it down after those or hate yourself for the rest of the day you can stream the new Linkin Park album on iTunes.
Hope you enjoy this edition of The Morning Stream. Ahhhh. Now it’s time for coffee.
As soon as you press play, your ears are graced with sweep picking and high intensity drumming. Yup, it’s a Dying Fetus album. They clearly let you know what you are in for within the first ten seconds of the album. The trio is back with another monster album also known as “Reign Supreme“. The technical death metal band pushes their limits once again, releasing another high quality album that keeps slam interesting and still gets respect and credit for being one of the best bands in the metal community. Trey Williams hyper speeds with his feet and hands are the star of the show really, while Sean Beasley and John Gallagher still push the limits with their frantic fretwork, I found myself mimicking Trey’s patterns and blasts more than anything. The entire album is crushingly heavily and with breakneck speeds and whiplash tempo changes…you’re in for a wild metal ride while listening to Reign Supreme.
In the mood for some Revocation? How about some Mastodon? Dying Fetus? Well if you want to listen to them but do not yet own anything head on over to Relapse Records Bandcamp to listen to their ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY. Man that’s such a nice thing for Relapse to do, it’s like Christmas in May. Fuck yeah let’s listen to some Murder Construct! Then some Kingdom of Sorrow! Then some Weekend Nachos! Oh, Pig Destroyer and Agoraphobic Nosebleed! No way!!! Mammoth Grinder, Nile, Origin & Suffocation!! I need to change my boxers. Yeah, make sure to visit this and headbang like a motherfucker! Thanks!!!!
Dying Fetus have released a new track through AP and it’s fucking killer. The opening quote has me enraged though. Click here to check it out.
Dying Fetus, the technical grind death lords from Maryland, are letting the fans download their latest single “Subjected To A Beating” on their Bandcamp page. Be sure to pre-order that sum-bitch too because the album is fucking awesome (Even though I haven’t even listened to it yet, I just know these things.)
Reign Supreme comes out June 19th on Relapse Records
Well my schedule is completely off due to the fact I worked on sat and had Monday off. I don’t blog at home unless it’s incredibly big news and I have nothing else to do. But with a woman, kid, xbox and guitar…I am usually busy as fuck. So enjoy this mornings RISE AND GRIND.
Oh and Diablo III came out today. Buy me a PC and a copy of that shit please.

First up, we have Jade Simonetto from Hate Eternal blasting his way through the song “Powers That Be”. His technique is more than just your usual blast fest and it’s fun to watch him try to be as brutal as possible yet keep things interesting. Secondly, we have Trey Williams from the legendary band, Dying Fetus, playing their song “From Womb To Waste”. Just like his two band mates, his play style is controlled chaos. Incredibly fast and carefully orchestrated musicianship and concentration: he just proves that death metal drumming is a true art form, not just a machine blasting just for the sake of blasting.
Oh fuck yes. New Dying Fetus!
