Metal Anarchy’s Top Albums Of 2022

I have put together a list of my top 10 albums of 2022. You can check that out below. This is just for fun and I know I probably left out some of your favorites, but these are all of the albums that I enjoyed the most this year:

10. Korn – “Requiem”

Korn’s latest album finds the band returning to form with a classic dose of nu-metal. It has all of the elements fans have come to love over the years wrapped into a small package with no filler. Some highlights from this one include: “Let The Dark Do The Rest,” “Worst Is On Its Way,” and “Lost In The Grandeur.”

09. Undeath – “It’s Time…To Rise from The Grave”

Undeath’s latest album is a full-on display of pummeling death metal that manages to stay true to the genre while still sounding fresh. It’s a killer record that proves the future of death metal is in good hands. Some highlights from this one include: “Rise from The Grave,” “Defiled Again,” and “Fiend For Corpses.”

08. Slipknot – “The End, So Far”

Slipknot’s latest album feels like a culmination of the band’s career and a glimpse into the future all at once. It combines elements from throughout the band’s history with new soundscapes to create something that sounds familiar yet slightly different. Some highlights from this one include: “Hivemind,” “Warranty,” and “Medicine For The Dead.”

07. Venom Prison – “Erebos”

Venom Prison’s latest album finds the band expanding their sound, while still sounding as crushing as ever. The effort is still a death metal record at its core, but it shows an evolutionary step forward for a band that keep rising to greater heights within the scene. Some highlights from this one include: “Comfort Of Complicity,” “Born From Chaos,” and “Nemesis.”

06. Lamb Of God – “Omens”

Lamb Of God have continued to crank out high-quality material for years and “Omens” is no exception. The effort is a heavy, classic sounding Lamb Of God record that takes into account the band’s evolution through a more focused lens. Some highlights from this one include: “Gomorrah,” “Ditch,” and “To The Grave.”

05. Halestorm – “Back From The Dead”

Halestorm are one of the strongest acts in the current rock scene and their latest album further cements that fact. The record gives the fans exactly what they want, Lzzy Hale’s soaring vocals backed by a hard rock explosion. Some highlights from this one include: “Wicked Ways,” “Brightside,” and the title track.

04. Arch Enemy – “Deceivers”

Arch Enemy’s latest album is one of their best pieces of work to date. All of the songs have the potential to become melodic death metal classics thanks to the band’s impeccable musicianship and powerful vocals. Some highlights from this one include: “Handshake With Hell,” “In The Eye Of The Storm,” and “The Watcher.”

03. Electric Callboy – “TEKKNO”

Electric Callboy’s latest album “TEKKNO” is a catchy display of electro-metalcore that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a fun ride that makes you want to smile and headbang the whole way through. Some highlights from this one include: “We Got The Moves,” “Hurrikan,” and “Arrow of Love”.”

02. Motionless In White – “Scoring The End Of The World”

Motionless In White managed to top themselves again with their latest album. The record is a work of art that packs elements of metal, hard rock, and industrial into infectious songs that you can’t help but move to. Some highlights from this one include: “Werewolf,” “Slaughterhouse (feat. Knocked Loose’s Bryan Garris),” and “Broadcasting From Beyond The Grave: Corpse Nation.”

01. Ghost – “Impera”

You can’t get much bigger than Ghost’s latest album. The effort combines elements of ’80s hard rock and pop to create massive songs that have the ability to transcend into the mainstream. Some highlights from this one include: “Spillways,” “Watcher In The Sky,” and “Respite On The Spitalfields.”
