LOL I didn't know we could post youtube clips either. I didn't think I remembered anyone posting any, but I thought I'd try it.

The Award for Most Disappointing Album of the Year goes to...
TIE Between Wintersun - Time and Ensiferum - Unsung Heroes.

Of these two albums, Time is definitely better. It is still Wintersun, and a decent to good album, but the expectations set by their self-titled release set me up for an immense disappointment. This album contains 3 real tracks, and they aren't all that long. Way too much orchestral/symphonic stuff, and not enough aggression. It's about 1/100th as good as the first album.

Ensiferum is one of the folk metal bands who never seems to wear out their welcome for me, until now. Even with their dropping Jari and switching to Petri, I enjoyed them. Victory Songs and From Afar were great records. But it seems like they are just going through the motions on Unsung Heroes, and there's really no reason for this as I thought From Afar was excellent. I found nothing memorable on their newest album, and this makes me sad

The Award for 2nd Best Album Artwork goes to...
Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction

I don't know what that thing on the cover is, but I'm pretty sure I've had nightmares about it before.

The Award for BEST Album Artwork goes to...
The Howling Wind - Of Babalon

Excellent artwork for a solid black metal release. I like that it is grim and evil, but simplistic. Simplistic yet with a fair amount of detail at the same time. Mostly red and blacks. It gets extra points too for being a black metal album cover without a single skull or flake of snow in sight.

Sure "Lucky Animals" isn't the most cheerful song of the year?

I'm not the biggest devin townsend fan (blasphemy, I know) so I had to google that to see what it is. It is indeed cheery but I can only pick from what I know!

But really the new Wintersun is pretty bad.

The Award for Best EP goes to...
Revocation - Teratogenesis

I love this EP. I think it's way better than their last album (which I still loved) and think it's among their best work. I love every track on this EP. Honorable mentions for good EPs go to Agalloch and Codeon.

Band I Most Want a New Album by NOW Even Though This Has Nothing To Do With 2012
Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy could be my favorite death metal band if I had to pick. Capable of being so catchy while being extremely brutal. I love everything they've done, and their last album A Taste of Extreme Divinity was no exception. Even though they are of course very popular, I still feel like they are underrated. I was hoping for a 2012 album by them at the beginning of the year. I am anxiously awaiting their next album, when and if it comes.
