Goatwhore - Blood for the Master
I believe that this was the first 2012 album I had purchased when they toured with Lock Up. I think this was also one of the first 2012 albums I listened to as well. Goatwhore continue their assault of blackened death metal with this album. Riffs from front to back and ridiculous song titles, I knew this album would be one of my favorites of the year.
Collapse in Eternal Worth
When Steel and Bone Meet
