Music I liked in 2022

I always do this, but honestly it was not a huge year for me in terms of listening to new music. I'm still jamming Necrot's Mortal (2020) on the regular and couldn't tell you much about what new death metal is out there. And two of my favorite bands were cut down by tragedy: Low due to Mimi Parker's untimely death from cancer, and Neurosis from the revelation that Scott Kelly was an abusive sociopath.

  • Sky Pig - It Thrives In Darkness
  • Petbrick - Liminal
  • Blut Aus Nord - Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses
  • Lykotonon - Promethean Pathology
  • Hissing - Hypervirulence Architecture
  • ADULT. - Becoming Undone
  • Nik Colk Void - Bucked up Space
  • Wet Leg - Wet Leg (I'm still hip!)
  • Jóhann Jóhannsson - Drone Mass (this is mostly here because it exists. It's a gift to have more Jóhann after his death)
  • Locrian - New Catastrophism
  • Vermin Womb - Retaliation
  • Primitive Man - Insurmountable
  • Undeath - It's Time... To Rise From The Grave
  • Hällas - Isle of WIsdom
  • KEN Mode - NULL
  • Conjurer - Pathos
  • Crowbar - Zero and Below (It's Crowbar... come on)
  • Orthodox - Proceed
  • Vanum - Legend

That was in no particular order, but I think the top spot is occupied by Haunted Horses' The Worst Has Finally Happened. Monstrous and unique. It does the things I like. Check it out.
