Goshuggist’s (Final) Top 7 Disappointments / Abject Failures Of 2012

By in large, 2012 was an extraordinary year for metal music. Countless bands released either their very best material (Malignancy, Spawn Of Possession, Cattle Decapitation, Hour Of Penance, Gorod, Kraanium, Dehumanized – even if they aren’t tech-death) or their best material in years. (Dying Fetus, Gojira, Meshuggah, Aborted, Putrid Pile – even if Shaun LaCanne doesn’t play tech-death) Of course, every year has their stinkers…

The albums that could have been great, good or even just passable but for one reason or another have ended up either hopelessly generic or down right awful. It’s time to go through the final 7 disappointments and abject failures of 2012. Get your boots on; it’s time to wade straight into the shit.

Review: Sentenced To Dissection – Between The Worlds

SENTENCED TO DISSECTION
Between The Worlds (2012)

Russia, Self-released, Technical Death Metal/Deathcore.

Oh Russian Tech-Death, why must we continue to play this game? I know you’re capable of creating mind-blowing tech-death extravaganzas that give the very best a run for their money (Monumental Torment’s ‘Element Of Chaos’) but then you turn around and start fellating Beneath The Massacre, resulting in a series of bands that could be wonderful tech-death but instead squeal and breakdown like there’s no tomorrow in between constant weedily deedling that makes haters cream themselves for reinforcing their caricature of the genre.
