Equitant - Body Vehement #15 @ Side-Line Reviews (Best of 2012)


This is a very personal and delicate choice! There were a lot of cool releases all over the year, but my number 1 was an easy choice; according to me it's the uncontested winner of 2012! I was hesitating about a lot of releases to get part of the 'top 20' and that's why I also made a list 'Special Mention'. The selection concerns releases we got for the reviews-section! We got more than 700 releases for 2012 dealing with EBM, dark-electornics, dark-ambient, synth-pop, ethereal, industrial, power-noise, IDM, tribal, trance, gothic, new-wave and related genres... so it's a very eclectic 'top 20'.

See you in 2013 for a new 'top 20'! St├ęphane Froidcoeur
