Metal Odyssey Presents: Ten METAL Albums You NEED For This Summer Of 2012! (Part One)


In my endless Metal pursuit to perform kind Metal deeds, I have compiled a list of Ten Metal albums you need for this Summer of 2012. This list is part one, therefore a part two shall be posted up sometime soon! Please notice the large link below each album chosen for this list; these links will take you directly to my review for that respective album. Enjoy and… Metal be thy name.

 ROYAL THUNDER – CVI

The combination of Mlny Parsonz vocals and the heavy music Royal Thunder plays on CVI is so good that I want to blab about it on billboards across North America. Think: 70’s heavy with a ton of relevance.

ROYAL THUNDER “CVI” – Unreal Is The Word And This Heavy Album MUST Be Heard!

ORANGE GOBLIN – A EULOGY FOR THE DAMNED

Um, the headline on that large link below pretty much says it all. Every time I listen to A Eulogy For The Damned, I keep muttering: holy shit, this album kicks ass! ‘Nuff said.

ORANGE GOBLIN – ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’: This Album Is Mandatory Metal, My Metal Brethren

KING GIANT – DISMAL HOLLOW

Yes Virginia, there is a Metal band that has kicked some Metal sense into me in 2012… and they’re from… Virginia.

KING GIANT “Dismal Hollow” – Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

IRON SAVIOR – THE LANDING

Yes, this new IRON SAVIOR album is such a powerful Metal experience to my senses, that it brought me to tears.

IRON SAVIOR ‘The Landing’ – German Power Metal Force Returns, In A Mammoth Way!

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – S/T

Corrosion Of Conformity RETURNS! This album from COC is an exclamation point on their legendary career. This is American Metal with 0% additives, flavorings or fillers. Down home Metal is COC. Yes, I really, really, really dig this COC album. I really do.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – ‘Corrosion Of Conformity’ – Get Ready Cause This Heady Album Transports The Very Heavy, Very Steady

SIX FEET UNDER – UNDEAD

Chris Barnes = Death Metal Legend. Six Feet Under = Death Metal Legends.

SIX FEET UNDER “UNDEAD” – A Merciless Sonic Experience Of Death Metal

OVERKILL – THE ELECTRIC AGE

Overkill never left the building. Overkill is to Thrash Metal what beer is to kegs. This is THE band that should turn The Big 4 into The Big 5. Metal be thy name.

OVERKILL ‘The Electric Age’ – Once Again, A Reminder Of Thrash Metal Supremacy

BEAK – EYRIE

The debut album from Chicago’s Beak is can’t miss. Beak seamlessly fuses Extreme and Modern Metal, with an exquisite attention to Metal detail that is so unreal it’s scary. Did I mention I dig this album?

BEAK ‘EYRIE’ – An Extreme, Modern and Uncompromising Post-Metal Album Debut

GRAVEYARD – THE ALTAR OF SCULPTED SKULLS

Come on now, did you really think I would have just “one” Death Metal album on this list? Graveyard has made some deadly noise in 2012. I meant it when I wrote: Death Metal That’s Built To Kick Your Ass. Only six songs, still, extremely potent Death Metal to savor.

GRAVEYARD ‘The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls’ – Death Metal That’s Built To Kick Your Ass

PHARAOH – BURY THE LIGHT

RETURN OF THE PHARAOH! Just a damn cool listen into Melodic and Epic Metal. Fabulous songwriting and musicianship. Pharaoh should be mighty proud of this album. I’m proud of this album.

PHARAOH – ‘Bury The Light’ – Weaves Both Melodic and Epic Metal, While Keeping It Heavy
