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, John Matos (pictured left), guitarist of the death-metal band Abiotic, selects his faves.






5. Cattle Decapitation, Monolith of Inhumanity
“Production on this is so sick. Such an awesome death-metal record.”









4. Dying Fetus, Reign Supreme
“Just so fucking brutal.”









3. The Contortionist, Intrinsic
“Such an interesting progression from their first record. Progressive, melodic, mellow, and inspiring.”









2. Job For a Cowboy, Demonocracy
“I love Job For a Cowboy and this record just blew my mind. These guys keep getting better and better!”









1. The Faceless, Autotheism
“Album of the year from my first listen through. Musicianship, production, and composition in progressive death metal at it’s finest!”
