Top 10 albums of 2012

Here we present what we at Infernal Masquerade think have been the best releases of 2012. Note that their order of appearance might be different than the individual genre lists, but this list takes into consideration overall play time and reviewer preference.

10. Sigh – In Somniphobia (2012)

Totally crazy and mesmerizing release from this wacky Japanese outfit

Beautiful vocals and melancholic landscapes sneak this release to our 2012 list






8. Blaze of Sorrow – Echi (2012)

Atmospheric brilliance from this Italian duo

Fabio Leone elevates this release from awesome to epic with his talents






6. Neurosis – Honor Found In Decay (2012)

Another brilliant release with an epic sound from this legendary band






5. Ragnarok – Malediction (2012)

Sheer brutality incarnate, enough said






4. Enslaved – RIITIIR (2012)

Always improving, Enslaved returns with another killer release that everybody must hear






3. Ihsahn – Eremita (2012)

Ihsahn continues to impress with his post-Emperor releases






2. Accept – Stalingrad (2012)

Accept brought back the magic this 2012, but it barely missed the top spot by a few votes here at Infernal Masquerade






1. Saturnus – Saturn In Ascension (2012)

Saturnus managed to awe us with this epic and soul crushing release, now we have to wait another 6 years for the next one!
