This magazine was launched ten months ago with the hopes that the Mayans’ prediction was correct. That by December 21, we’d never have to write about music again. As the end of the world draws near, we thought with our last dying gasps to annoy the world further with our scarily-pretentious Best of Norwegian Releases from 2012 – according to this year’s top ratings.

Why nothing over 9.0 you wonder? Well, this year in music didn’t floor us – from one music nerd to another – but we noticed a lot was forgotten by mainstream media, as per u-ghuh.

So in sum, we still kick your magazine’s end of the year lists’ arse! And stay tuned for our upcoming Worst Norwegian Releases of 2012. Uh oh…
