Best Rock/Metal Albums of 2012 – FMX Staff Picks
2012 was a huge year of music for rock and metal. There were countless number of albums released that were instant classics. Check out our list of albums that we considered our favorite or best for 2012. See if you agree with any of the picks that the FMX staff made.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm With You
Technically, this album came out in 2011, but Wes said this was still his favorite album for all of 2012. It was that strong to carry over into a new year and still blow everything else away.
Rage Against The Machine - XX
The 20th anniversary for Rage Against The Machine's debut album is unreal. Well worth whatever you need to pay for it. Plus, it's Rage!
Stone Sour - House of Gold & Bones: Part One
Frank's exact words were "Stone Sour Rules." Can't argue with that.
Papa Roach - The Connection
Papa Roach never disappoints. The Connection rocks pretty hard and I can't to see them play some of these songs at Birthday Bash.
Demon Hunter - True Defiance
It's their first big push into mainstream but they still put out the great music Demon Hunter fans are accustom to.
Dethklok - Dethalbum III
It's Dethklok. It's the most brutal band in the world. Nuff said.
