For this, the first episode of 2013, I'm taking my traditional look back at the last year with the "Best ov 2012," in the realms of Goth, Post-punk, Deathrock, Darkwave, Industrial, EBM, Dark Ambient, Film Scores, Doom, Dark Metal, and other areas of ethereal and experimental fusions of unlit sound.

Living in the age of digital singles and frequent EP releases, it's becoming harder to compile a list of albums, but I've featured the artwork from many of my top picks in the collage you see above. Don't look at it as a complete list -- that's what the podcast itself is for -- and the covers are not placed in order of rank. I didn't want to narrow things down that far, so it was put together with aesthetics in mind.

While most of what is featured on this almost 3-and-a-half-hour special has been heard on the show in the last 12 months, there are a few new selections that got in just under the wire, including some last-minute releases, and a few things that almost evaded my ears in 2012. Almost.

If you decide to store and keep just one "Out ov the Coffin" podcast each year, I would recommend this one, as it has been designed to act as a time-capsule. If this works as intended, it will please the most loyal listeners, while turning new and casual listeners on to some releases they didn't yet check out. As always, if you like the show, please pass the link (or the file itself) along to anyone and everyone you think might enjoy it.

BONUS: After the playlist, I've included a great selection of videos from the albums that made the 'Best ov 2012' show. Enjoy...
