Michael Vampire of Vampires Everywhere! 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, Michael Vampire (pictured left), vocalist of the goth-metal band Vampires Everywhere!, selects his faves.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Motionless in White, Infamous
“I think [co-producer] Tim Skold did an amazing job on this record. My favorite song is ‘A-M-E-R-I-C-A’ for obvious reasons.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Jack White, Blunderbuss
“There’s something evil about Jack White and this album seems to encompass that well.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Slipknot, Antennas to Hell
“If you’re looking for all your favorite Slipknot songs, studio-recorded and live-recorded, this is your record.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Deftones, Koi No Yokan
“This album is a beautiful combination of hard-hitting riffs and eerie vocal patterns. Which I believe only Deftones can pull off properly.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. HIM, XX: Two Decades of Love Metal
“This record combines all my favorite HIM songs and, in my eyes, is timeless.”
