With 2012 just a memory and 2013 well underway I guess it’s time to post my “Favorite Albums of 2012” list. I think we all know this past year was nothing short of spectacular in regards to thrash (and metal in general) and I have to admit, I had a hard time creating this list. It wasn’t because of lack of great albums (if you think that WAKE UP!) but because there was just so many great albums released this year.  

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. Asking me to choose my favorite thrash album for a year so spectacular is like asking a parent to pick their favorite child, it’s an impossible task. However I’m gonna try!

Please keep in mind I’m only one person and it would be impossible for me to have heard every killer album that was released this year so please don’t go all “YouTube comment section” on me here. With that said let’s begin! 

Number 10: Testament – Dark Roots Of Earth

Number 09: Insinnerator – Hypothermia

Number 08: Game Over – For Humanity

Number 07: Bludvera – Terrorform EP

Number 06: Kreator – Phantom Antichrist

Number 05: Dr. Living Dead – Radioactive Intervention

Number 04: MadMaze – Frames of Alienation

Number 03: Tantara – Based on Evil

Number 02: Lich King – Born of the Bomb

Number 01: Overkill – The Electric Age

  1. That is a fine list. Having said that, in my opinion, Testament, Overkill and Kreator made most top 10 lists based largely on reputation and fanatism. Athought they put out more-than-decent records last year, they are hardly among the top 10 thrash (in the purest sense) albums of 2012
