We are at the time of year to reflect upon at what albums really made an impression on me – it’s time for the mid-year best of list. We are half way through a pretty amazing year as far as metal is concerned. Quite a few veteran bands out there released some stellar music…with one New Jersey band topping my list so far. One thing I love about blogging with fellow metalheads is that we all love metal equally, but definitely have a fondness for different subgenres. Both Matt’s and Mark’s lists are great and unique and give me something to listen to…some of that stuff I haven’t heard yet. I hope I can offer the same in return. Here is my Top 5 list for mid-year 2012.
New Overkill is coming in a very short time. This is probably my most anticipated album of 2012 despite it being only March. Yes, I want this that much. I can’t come up with anything creative to say. Just listen to it!
Ok, now I am getting pumped up. Normally I am unaware of an Overkill release because they tend to sneak them out. You know, they are not all about the whole advertising thing. If I listen to The Electric Age and drive 90MPH in England, my ass will get ticketed at every speed cam in the country. Hopefully, I will be able to control what D.D. says I’ll do listening to this album. Just about a month or so away. Check out this little update. Hey Overkill, let’s have a sneak peek at the music!
