Posts: 8,175 now is the part where I'm supposed to talk abut the shows I saw in 2012 and how they ranked. Yeah, right. I don't even remember where the list of shows I attended is right now, much less how they rank or what I thought of them. I know I saw Neurosis / Bloodiest a few days before the end of the year, and it was heavenly. Not only that, but Metalsetlists' own Moobys37 (Jon) and Garagemetal468 (Dan) were there, and it was in Chicago (a road trip for me and Jon), so that made it all the more awesome. Other than that, I would have to go back and do some digging to publish these two lists.

For now, I'm going to skip them and start the Nifty Fifty instead. I decided to provide comments for the top twenty-five, so here goes with numbers fifty through twenty-six:

50. Grave - Endless Procession of Souls
49. Gaza - No Absolutes in Human Suffering
48. Pelican - Ataraxia - Taraxis
47. Death Grips - The Money Store
46. Bardo Pond - Yntra
45. Cynic - The Portal Tapes
44. Nachtmystium - Silencing Machine
43. Apocalypsis - Apocalypsis
42. Bison BC - Lovelessness
41. Hour of Penance - Sedition
40. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles III
39. Weapon - Embers & Revelations
38. Unleashed - Odalheim
37. Xibalba - Hasta la Muerte
36. The Sword - Apocryphon
35. Earth - Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light (Part 2)
34. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
33. The Wretched End - Inroads
32. Early Graves - Red Horse
31. Swans - The Seer
30. Aesop Rock - Skelethon
29. Witch Mountain - Cauldron of the Wild
28. Castle - Blacklands
27. Isis - Temporal
26. Kylesa - From the Vaults, Vol. 1

I liked all of these albums a great deal. There are a few EP's and compilations mixed in here, because I didn't bother carving those albums out from the rest of the herd for 2012. If it kept popping up in my listening queue, it was fair game for the list. Period. If I like it, I like it - it doesn't matter to me what type of album it is.
9/2 Chelsea Wolfe
9/5 Old Man Gloom
10/28 Acid King
11/13 Windhand
