Jeremy Wagner of Broken Hope 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, Jeremy Wagner (pictured left), guitarist of the death-metal band Broken Hope, selects his faves.

 

 

 

 

5. Fear Factory, The Industrialist
“Dino [Cazares, guitar] and Burton [C. Bell, vocals] are the industrial-metal dream team and The Industrialist proves how great and tenacious they are.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Cynic, The Portal Tapes
“I’ve been waiting over 10 years to witness the album see the light of day. I’m so thrilled the Cynic guys got on this and put it out. It’s a true gem–one of my faves for sure.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Aborted, Global Flatline
“The new Aborted album further strengthens their place in modern death metal. An amazing album with some of the best artwork and packaging I’ve seen all year.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Dying Fetus, Reign Supreme
“Dying Fetus. That’s all I have to say. They are death-metal overlords. Just listen to the track, ‘In the Trenches’ and see why.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Napalm Death, Utilitarian
“Anything Napalm Death outs out is the best grind. I love them–they ALWAYS deliver!”
