(Note that some of these I do not expect to like but I listen to everything.)

Is that Sunn O))) the vinyl release date for the live thing that came out last month?

Already heard the Earthless, and pre-ordered the CD; it rules. Several of their back catalog titles are being reissued by Nuclear Blast in January. I bought those, too.
Definitely looking forward to Immolation and Destruction. Mildly curious about the Matt Pike thing, as I'm unclear why it needs to exist unless High On Fire broke up and I missed it.

Yeah the Sunn O))) is just the vinyl for the live thing.

Of course I have sky-high expectations for the new LPs by Priest and Meshuggah.

One 2022 release I've really been into is the new one by Night Cobra over on High Roller. Excellent early-80s style stuff.

oooh Wiegedood, nice

Apparently one needs special headphones to hear metal properly.

The new Wilderun. Wow.

is that good or bad

i listened to the first couple songs and got bored and kept moving ... admittedly, did not give it a fair chance

Yeah, curious to hear more Neanderthal. I know Angry Metal Guy gave it a perfect 5.0 which surprised me since usually even their albums of the year rarely even garner a grudging 4.0 or 4.5. Missed the last one completely, but some of the praise has me curious.

from someone who thought Veil Of Imagination was a 10/10 masterpiece...the new one is kind of a crushing letdown tbh

but if you like music that abandons a preceding album's majestic (and unusual) sense of melody and pacing in order to have loads of 'impressive' dynamic shifts, incoherent Opethisms, widdly solos and rAnDOm ChANGeS, and basically none of those awesome melodies at all, then yeah, go for it. Literally put me to sleep when I first tried to listen to it, finished it the next day and felt nothing more than a shrug. AMG easily impressed by showy instrumentation it seems

The debut album by Verbum, a doomy death metal band from Chile, is pretty good — it reminds me of very early Esoteric — but it has eight tracks including an intro, an outro, and two interludes. That's not an album, that's an EP.

xpost *shrug*, works just fine for me

lol I thought you meant All Music Guide for a moment, I guess Angry Metal Guy has the same initials

the abrasiveness of last year's newest Concrete Winds is doing it for me right now

We doing a 2021 best of this year?
