    The only album I've listened to so far which has really impressed me is the new Van Halen one. Is it just me or is 2012 off to a slow start for metal? New Psycroptic is good but lacks the punch of earlier albums, new Buckethead cuts the line between understated genius and elevator music a bit too fine, new Opera IX is nothing noteworthy...

    Nothing as yet. Looking forward to new Marilyn Manson, Blaze Bayley and the Editors.

    I can't think of one album I've heard of that I want to buy yet, but then I've not being paying much attention.

    Primal Rock Rebellion (the Adrian Smith project) is pretty solid. It's not "holy shit this is the most fucking amazing thing i've ever heard" which is what I was kind of expecting, but it gets better with repeat listens. Maybe my expectations were just too high after how "holy shit" awesome ASAP and Psycho Motel were.

    Finally got around to checking these out. Cannibal Corpse good, Napalm Death jaw-dropping :headbang:

    Spawn of Posession, Gorod, Obscura (even if not technically "new" material) and Beneath The Massacre new albums are all stand-outs too. Looks like Year of the Brutal so far.

    I need more Napalm Death in my collection. Might be a good one to start with.

    If you start with the latest one, it will be a down-hill voyage from there... I'd start with Harmony Corruption or Diatribes and work your way forward to the present. Do yourself a favor and give anything earlier than Harmony Corruption a wide berth.
