It’s been a rough year. A lot of good, a lot of bad, but I won’t get into any of it, because today I’m posting my “albums of 2022.”
Didn’t say “best of,” because honestly I’ve spent a good chunk of this year listening to Masayoshi Takanaka live videos and other non-2022 releases on YouTube, so I’ve most likely missed a lot of new music this year.
This is mostly a list of albums that I bought off Bandcamp, came out this year, and I very much enjoyed. I’m probably still forgetting a handful, but like I said: 🤷♂️.
A list of each with links:
Meat Wave – Malign Hex
Snuffed – Coping Human Waste
Unholy Strength – Tomes of Heavens Apocalypse
Man…of ASTRO-Man? – Distant Pulsar
Polterwytch – 5 Curses of the Polterorgel
Ripped to Shreds – 劇變 (Jubian)
Dark Watcher – Frontier
Pleasure Venom – Rebirth/Return
Devil Master – Ecstasies of Never Ending Night
Blacklisters – Leisure Centre
There’s also a handful of my favorites that I only got digital copies of (for one reason or another), here’s some big highlights for 2022:
Don’t see your favorite album of 2022 on this list? It’s because I don’t own it, okay!?
I hope that you all have a great holiday season, an even better 2023, and that you found some new music to enjoy today!
