Anders Fridén of In Flames Picks His Five Favorite Albums of the Year

Leading up to the end of the year, Revolver has asked some of our favorite artists to pick their Top Albums of 2012 and tell us why each record rules. Here, Anders Fridén (pictured left), vocalist of the metal band In Flames, selects his faves.






5. Torche, Harmonicraft
“I guess I’ll never see a new Handsome album but, this is a awesome and great substitute.”











4. Baroness, Yellow & Green
“Been a fan since I heard Red album. This is a hard, heavy, sludgy, melodic piece of art.”











3. While She Sleeps, This Is the Six
“Heavy, melodic, and smart.”











2. Deftones, Koi No Yokan
“The best album from the Sacramento boys since the fantastic White Pony album.”











1. Witchcraft, Legend
Fantastic!!! The best thing coming from Sweden–well, since us.”
