ALARM’s 50 (+5) Favorite Songs of 2012

Old Man Gloom: “The Forking Path”

Old Man Gloom’s NO wasn’t just our favorite reunion album of 2012; it was a gut-busting riff assault from members of Isis, Converge, Cave In, and Zozobra. With harmonized leads bleeding through the sludge-metal mix, “The Forking Path” isn’t entirely despairing. When it devolves into industrial hell, with a slithering guitar effect, the hardcore heavyweights show the thought and range that make their albums epic.
