Mispyrming trying to throw a spanner in the works, just announcing their new one is coming out December 16

Do love a short announcement/release gap. No track premiere yet either, just "we're dropping this in two weeks".

It was actually announced on the 7th of October.

2022 has been really weird for me musicwise. I've listened to over 200 new albums, but very few of them have had any staying power with me. I'm in the process of revisiting a lot of stuff, so we'll see how it goes. But it feels like it'll be hard to actually make my top 10 this year.

This year was quite a bit better than the previous two, though still a far cry from something like 2016 or 2018. Gonna hold off with sending the list till the end of the month as usual, since there are still a couple albums I need to hear - haven't gotten around to the new Hammers of Misfortune yet, and Arrayan Path have a new one next week.

This year does not seem to be as difficult as the last one for me, but I haven't heard a 9+/10 album either, gotta admit.

Sakis Tolis, Belphegor and Blind Guardian will be up there, Sonja too.

Xentrix' new one is a great thrasher, but the vocals kill most of it for me...

I'd had Immo as my favourite to win this since it came out since big name act + better than usual album + Ulcerate won one so it shouldn't scare too many people off, but given it's had four mentions in a page and a half I'm starting to doubt a bit.

My Current top 15 to brazenly try to bait more attention to them:
Mizmor & Thou - Myopia - Yodh with more sludge fun times
Ultra Silvam - The Sanctity of Death - Meloblack where it's too fast and hectic for the melodies to fit in so they have to play them twice as fast as reasonable
Hissing - Hypervirulence Architecture - Dissodeath which is like Portal and Mitochondrion mixed.
Pharmacist - Flourishing Extremities on Unspoiled Mental Grounds - Very deathmetally goregrind with massive clean guitar solos
Immolation - Acts of God - Immolation stuff
Desecresy - Unveil in the Abyss - More Slugathor than the new Slugathor.
Suppression - The Sorrow of Soul Through Flesh - Turn of the 90's proto-techdeath
Vimur - Transcendental Violence - Just a big good time black metal rifforama
Blut aus Nord - Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses - BAN stuff
Blut Aus Nord - Lovecraftian Echoes - BAN stuff
Imprecation - In Nomine Diaboli - really concise and songy super violent OSDM
Human Corpse Abuse - Xenoviscerum - Rad goregrind which mixes the super noisy stuff with riff off parts
Inanna - Void of Unending Depths - OSDM with a progressive bent that doesn't neuter it.
Druid Lord - Relics of the Dead - A meaner Hooded Menace
Blasphematory - The Lower Catacombs - First Funebrarum album worship

I've listened to the new Immolation record a few times throughout the year, and I really like it, but can't really decide if it's a top 10 album or not. Like it's on the verge for sure, and would definitely make top 20, but maybe not top 10.

I also forgot to list the newest Cult of Luna in my short list earlier in the thread, but it's most likely going to end up in my top 10. Such a powerful album!

Oh, and I finally got around to listening to the new Marrasmieli record. It was on my list of albums to check out, but I didn't get around to it until yesterday, and it's a great album. It's in my top tier records of the year for sure, but I don't know if I will include it in my top 10 yet. There is some other quality black metal moving around the bottom half of my top 10, including the new Incandescence and Aesthus.

Thanks! I had been trying to keep up with searching every band but one always manages to slip through.

Ok, here we go. I've been working on this all year after not taking it seriously enough last time (I can't believe it's gone so fast!) and it's the first time I've conscientiously (and anally) kept track of everything that has come my way. I think I'll keep it up every year as so much amazing music would have totally flown under my radar otherwise.
I've built up a pretty huge list of everything I've liked in each of the subgenres throughout the year. My top 10 is pretty much done but I'm holding off in case of any last-minute surprises.

My favorite release of the year is The Chasm, hands down. I have a rough idea for the rest of my top 10, but I'll be honing that down in the next few weeks.

Ok, here we go. I've been working on this all year after not taking it seriously enough last time (I can't believe it's gone so fast!) and it's the first time I've conscientiously (and anally) kept track of everything that has come my way. I think I'll keep it up every year as so much amazing music would have totally flown under my radar otherwise.
I've built up a pretty huge list of everything I've liked in each of the subgenres throughout the year. My top 10 is pretty much done but I'm holding off in case of any last-minute surprises.

Looks like one of my prospective top ten won't appear on the list. Looks like it's been blacklisted, https://theatreofhumanwoe.bandcamp.com/ ... -discourse

Now on the other hand not sure about https://withouthome.bandcamp.com/album/forever-longing It's not the archive but that could just be because I'm the only person who cares about the material and not because it wouldn't fit.

Looks like they were submitted and rejected last month for "shoegaze with screams".

Gonna wait til the very end of the year to hear how new Rudra's going to sound. That album may rearrange any tentative ordering right at the end of the year.

Kind of don't want to participate this year because of how stacked it is. Going to give me a major headache, but I know I'll cave.

Hmm, my current shortlist at the moment is 32 albums long.

There's still a few I'm waiting on release, such as Bucovina's Suntem Aici, but we shall see. This is gonna be a tough one to whittle down to just 10. It's been a relatively decent year.

Alvenrad - Veluws ijzer
Änterbila - Änterbila
Asterean - Cosmorama
Bannerless - Mighty Winds Shall Carry Their Names

Currently in the process of weeding through only about 17 albums, though there are a few I haven't even officially listed yet. I still want to give Satan and Watain's newest shots, as well as the new album from Sonja.

Looks like they were submitted and rejected last month for "shoegaze with screams".


Yep, I wanted to see if it had been blacklisted before making you do extra work. I'm not sure about without home... to me it sounds like pure dsbm but not sure if it's more shoegaze or some other non metal genre. My third prospective addition is in the archives thankfully.

Will need to wait for Woods of Desolation's "The Falling Tide" to come out before making my top 10.
So far this year was a pretty good one in terms of new releases.

Note to self: don't wait until late November/early December to start listening to the albums released that year. I tend to listen to songs individually rather than full albums, so I have just under 40 albums I purchased this year left to listen to. And I can't properly listen to music right now after seeing High on Fire/Municipal Waste last night and my ears still ringing right now. One release I probably won't get to because it releases late December, and I'd rather not listen to a digital version that I didn't rip, oh well.

I'm glad somebody mentioned Fellowship - The Saberlight Chronicles

I'm definitely considering Vehemence, Blind Guardian, Septicflesh, and Manegarm to name a few.

There are some albums worth mentioning so they don't get overlooked:

MMXX - Sacred Cargo
Lots of many guest vocalists from Swallow the Sun, Antimatter, My Dying Bride, and others are featured.

Riverwood - Shadows and Flames
It starts off with a cover of The Dragonborn Comes (Dovakhin) from Skyrim. I personally enjoy the atmosphere throughout, and my favorites are Queen of the Dark and Lustful Temptation.

Miseration - Black Miracles and Dark Wonders
I've been a fan of Christian Alvestam, formerly of Scar Symmetry, and currently a studio vocalist, since taking note of his appearance on Demon Hunter - The World is a Thorn in their song Just Breathe. I may need to listen to it again to try to explain why it deserves votes.

Ryth - Deceptor Creator
Melodeath from Bahrain

Myrkgand - Rituals & Wisdom
Brazilian Melodeath solo project. It has a tribute to Chuck Schuldiner (Schuldiner Enters Valhalla) as well as one to Ronnie James Dio (Silver Mountain)

Also, can both Kanonenfieber EPs be counted as one entry, or do they have to be separate? Thanks

This is my current list:

1. Arjen Anthony Lucassen's Star One - Revel in Time
2. Voivod - Synchro Anarchy
3. Amorphis - Halo
4. Megadeth - The Sick, the Dying... and the Dead!
5. Scorpions - Rock Believer
6. Therion - Leviathan II
7. Queensrÿche - Digital Noise Alliance
8. Kreator - Hate über alles
9. Ghost - Impera
10. Tobias Sammet's Avantasia - A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society

Overall, a slightly underwhelming year in terms of new metal outputs as I have preferred several non-metal releases over most records on this list. The only essential releases are the first two in my opinion, the others however still vary between very good and great.

My favorite one so far must be "Cancer Culture". The sound and songs are awesome, especially compared to the meh "Anticult".

I was looking forward to submitting a list but I'm actually gonna pass. It wouldn't be worth much imo as I haven't really listened to enough metal this year. My only top albums are Blut Aus Nord's Disharmonium and Sigh's Shiki.

Your comment immediately grabbed my attention. Anything with Aaron is worth a listen...will definitely investigate this band/album, which I'd not heard of previously.

1. Immolation – Acts of God

2. Watain - The Agony & Ecstasy of Watain

3. Krisiun – Mortem Solis

4. Drudkh – All Belong to The Night

5. Revocation – Netherheaven

6. Cult Of Luna – The Long Road North

7. Deathspell Omega – The Long Defeat

8. Månegarm - Ynglingaättens Öde

9. Belphegor – The Devils

10. Blut Aus Nord – Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses

I chose Immolation as my number 1. I will freely admit that this is a bit of a personal bias as they are my favorite death metal band.

I thought that albums by Watain, Krisiun, Revocation and Belphegor were kind of the best material they have done for a while. At least better than the last one or two albums, so they get a place in my top 10.

I want to make a special mention about Månegarm. They are a consistent and criminally overlooked band that have been producing good albums for a long time now. I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. The last album was also a step up from the previous one as well.

My other picks will also poll pretty well I think as I have seen their names mentioned a few times already.

All in all, a good year for metal.

The disappointing albums this year in my opinion were from Candlemass, Saxon, SepticFlesh.

Yeah, Sweet Evil Sun was a pretty lacklustre. The production also feels kind of weird.
