Oderus Urungus of GWAR 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, Dave Brockie a.k.a. Oderus Urungus (pictured left), vocalist of GWAR, selects his faves.
5. Cancer Bats, Dead Set on Living
"We had the pleasure of touring with these Canucks and I liked them so much that I actually got their album. Dirty stoner hatred for angry people, the Bats deliver a solid thrust."
4. The Cory Smoot Experiment, When Worlds Collide
"Cory Smoot, a.k.a. Flattus Maximus, was an incredible musician, and another metal legend we lost much too young. The final act from the man behind the mask is a dark and brooding metal masterpiece."
3. Municipal Waste, The Fatal Feast
"The Waste's Nuclear Blast debut never disappoints as the world's new Ramones (hopefully without the cancer) continue their reign of fun."
2. Lamb of God, Resolution
"Resolution is what this band has displayed over their long career in metal, and they continue deliver goods of the highest level. Best of luck, Randy!"
1. Pig Destroyer, Book Burner
"The rise of the Pig continues with this savage return to the primal. Unrelentingly fast, conceptually acute, this record is simply mind-blowing."
