Nuclear Blast Staff Top 5 Albums of 2012! - 2012-12-20 03:00

2012-12-20 03:00 - It’s that time of year again when the industry and fans alike start putting together lists of their favourite albums that have been released since January and in keeping with this tradition, we decided to gather some Top 5 Albums of 2012 lists from the staff here at Nuclear Blast. There’s a wide variety of releases in the staff picks, including some choice picks from other labels / our favourite bands, as well as our favourite Nuclear Blast releases.

We also happened to stumble upon EQPTV on YouTube recently and in case you hadn’t heard of the channel, it’s run by 12-year-old Elliot Paisley. Elliot first caught our eye when we saw him reviewing the likes of ISIS and Neurosis – both bands posted his reviews on their Facebook pages they were that taken with the little guy’s well-informed views. We decided to get Elliot involved in the list making and filmed his Top 5 Nuclear Blast releases of 2012 recently, which you can check out below:
