Top Demek 2022

2022 Faves.
40Willi Carlisle
Peculiar, Missouri

Folk/Americana. Saw this one a few months back, a fold record with pink cover, had to hit the play button. Not an expert of the genre but really enjoyed the directness and humour of these lyrics.
39L.S. Dunes
Past Lives

Post-Hardcore. Don't know where this came from, but got hooked from first listen.
38Imperial Triumphant
Spirit of Ecstasy

Avant-Garde Black Metal with Jazz elements. Their most complicated and 'difficult' release to date. Requires many listens.
37Come to Grief
When the World Dies

Sludge Metal from the titans (with different name).
Survival of the Sickest

Groovy Death Metal. Simple and to the point.
35Stick to Your Guns

Pop-Hardcore. A mixture of hardcore with poppy hooks. Enjoyed that one.
34Boston Manor

Pop-Core. Catchy EP with songs to sing along to.
33Bob Vylan
Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life

Punk/Grime. Modern and relevant to 'what's happening now' stuff.

Alt. Rock that takes you back to the 90's. If the second songs was missing (with the sweet home Alabama riff) WTF!) it would be much more consistent.
Death Revival

Obituary worship Death Metal. Groovy and to the point. Very enjoyable.
30The Flex
Chewing Gum For The Ears

Violent and genuine Hardcore from Leeds, UK. Angry AF.
29The Bobby Lees

Garage Rock/Post-Punk. Great release in a very crowded and repetitive genre.
Hexen Valley

Psychedelic/Noise Rock. Music to suck you in, from the masters.
27The Callous Daoboys
Celebrity Therapist

Mathcore. If you miss ''Dillinger...'', listen to this one.
Consecration of the Spiritus Flesh

French Black Metal. His best release of the year. Furious and chaotic. No breaks on this one. Relentless from start to finish.

Simplistic Slayer riffing with Hardcore style vocals. How this can go wrong when you have these 2 elements!?
New Lords

Furious Hardcore Punk. Really surprised with this one.
23The Temple (GR)
Of Solitude Triumphant

Traditional Doom Metal with good pace (not too slow), and great riffs.
Heaven Is Here

Progressive and violent forward thinking Hardcore with electronic elements. Cool stuff.
21Drug Church

Post-Hardcore. Never really got into their previous release ''CHEER'', but the opener on ''Hygiene'' got me from the first seconds and this album stuck in the player for long time.
The Art of Fatigue

Sludgy Noise Rock. On their third album Krause found their voice with a good balance between their influences and originality. Enjoyed this one (maybe too much!).

Technical Death Metal by the most underrated band of the genre.
18Machine Head
Of Kingdom and Crown

Heavy Metal with Chugs! Gave it a listen with ''Catharsis'' in mind and I was pleasantly surprised. Vogg made the difference. Killer groovy riffs. Maybe Machine Head's best album after ''Unto The Locust''.

Progressive Metal by OG's. They really can't release anything bad.
16Faceless Entity
The Great Anguish of Rapture

Claustrophobic and haunting Black Metal. Scary stuff!
Killers Like Us

Post-Hardcore/Noise Rock from Oxbow's Eugene Robinson's other band. You cant go wrong with this one.
14Chat Pile
God's Country

Sludge/Noise/Post-Hardcore. First listen on this one will remind you of Daughter's ''You Won't Get What You Want'', especially the vocal style. However, the lyrics and whole atmosphere is exceptional on this one.
tálcunnana dëhajma tun dejl bënatsë abcul’han dlhenisë ëlh inagat..

Ambient/Dungeon Synth Black Metal. His best effort this year. One long track, with haunting melodies and screeching vocals.
We're Not Here To Be Loved

Alt. Metal. 90's feeling all over the place with a bit of Deftones worship. Really enjoyable album that takes you down to memory lane (if you're old!).
11Lorna Shore
Pain Remains

Metalcore/Deathcore for people that they don't listen to core. The classical elements are nice on this one, vocals are the highlight, different from other release of the genre.
There's Always Blood at the End of the Road

Progressive Black Metal. Love this bands releases, but with this one they took it a step forward. Very forward thinking and modern black metal.
9Worn Mantle
Worn Mantle

Drone/Black/Death Metal. Found this album by accident and stuck in my player with me throughout the year. Super massive and dense sound that sucks you in.
8Cave In
Heavy Pendulum

I can't categorise Cave In's music. Heavy rock with progressive and sludge elements maybe is a good description. My favourite of them after they debut album, with awesome production (Kurt Balloo).
Diaspora Problems

Energetic up to date Hardcore. Bad Brains vibes all over the place on this one. Great album, looking forward to what they will offer next, cause the bar is set too high with this one.
6Author and Punisher

Industrial/Drone. This should have been the original soundtrack to Dune. Amazing original material with a great Portishead cover.
5Birds in Row
Gris Klein

French Post-Hardcore. Emotional AF. Their best release so far and in a new label (Red Creek) run by the Cult of Luna guys.

How can a band from Singapore reinvent Grindcore?! Well, Hiss is the answer to that question.

Drone from the Japanese gods. Their best effort of the year in my opinion.
All That Has Never Been True

High quality dense Black Metal with massive atmosphere, and some groove! Cover is a bit meh, but the music material is gold.
1The Halo Effect
Days of the Lost

Proper 90's style Swedish Melodic Death Metal. Way better in comparison to the material that the big 3 (In Flames, Dark Tranquillity & At The Gates) have released in years.
