Favorite Album of 2012:
man it's been a tough year... killer albums from Soundgarden, Shinedown & Halestorm.. Nothing really stood out as an album I was blown away by like Wasting Light from the Foo Fighters in 2011. But I'm gonna say my top 2 were House of Gold & Bones from Stone Sour & Lamb of God's Resolution. Unless of course we count Metallica's Beyond Magnetic EP which was released on disc at the start of 2012...lol!
We've got plenty to look forward to in the New Year: Metallica's Orion Music and More Festival will only be 4hrs north of us in June. Green Day is set to tour North America to support their 3 albums and see the triumphant rise of Billy J post rehab. We'll soon be getting new albums from Pearl Jam, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Killswitch Engage, Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, IRON MAIDEN, AC/DC & Jason Newsted is set to release a series of songs starting with an EP early next month. And lastly.. all the spring tours you know will head our way. Yes... Say goodbye to 2012 and raise those DEVIL HORNS! HAPPY NEW YEAR LUNATICS!
