The Best of the First Half

2012 is halfway gone. I would say it’s been an interesting year for metal, but every year is. Hell, every week is. If you don’t think so, you’re not paying attention. This is what I’ve been digging on in no particular order:

Autolatry – Of the Land
Mgła – With Hearts Toward None
Bosse-de-Nage – III
Torture Chain – Time is but a Doorway to the Incinerator
Hail Spirit Noir – Pneuma
Pallbearer – Sorrow and Extinction
Dawnbringer – Into the Lair of the Sun God
Les Discrets – Ariettes Oubliées…
Addaura – Burning for the Ancient
Christian Mistress – Possession
Woods of Ypres – Grey Skies and Electric Light
Wild Hunt – Before the Plane of Angles

I’m picking up albums at a stupidly excessive rate (3+ a week) so there’s a good chance by year’s end my list will look nothing like this. But hey, lists are fun. And having fun is what black metal is all about. Wait.
