For people interested in fun statistics, here is some data for my list:

Statistics:
Countries:
USA = 20
Australia = 4
UK = 3
Norway = 3
Austria = 3
France = 3
Sweden = 2
Denmark = 2
Germany = 2
Hungary = 1
Finland = 2
Israel = 1
Poland = 1

The Netherlands = 1
Costa Rica = 1
Years:
1970-1979: 1
1980 - 1989: 8
1990 - 1999: 12
2000 - 2009: 11
2010 - 2019: 6
2020 - 2022: 13
Genres:
Death = 14
Black & Folk = 13
Doom & Gothic = 10
Thrash = 7
Sludge & Hardcore = 5

Conclusions:
While I do branch out to several countries, most of my addictions still tend to come from the US. I've explored more albums released between 2000 and 2009, while revisiting personal favorites from the 90s. To prepare for the MS Awards, I also listened to many albums released this year. My favorite genres remain black and death, it seems. Although I began exploring more doom and sludge.

Overall, a very fun year of metal for me! I can't wait to see where my musical interests will take me next year

Lovely albums these! I didn't know you enjoyed Ahab! Also cool to see "In Their Darkened Shrines", "Leviathan", "The Way of All Flesh" and "Welcome My Last Chapter" on here

So imminently visible - this cloaked innocent guilt
Sentenced to a lifetime, a second of structured chaos
Trampled by the ferocious, raging crowds of solitude
I'm the soil beneath me soaking up the sustenance of my own death.

I didn't know you enjoyed Ahab!

Their debut is the best funeral doom I've encountered. I'm not a big fan of the genre, but the eerieness on that one is spot-on
Quote:

Yeah those are great, especially Gojira's. The top 4 on my list (Show No Mercy, Melissa, Annihilation of the Wicked, The Way Of All Flesh) have been extremely addicting to me over the past year.

Other than those top 4, the best new discoveries for me this year that will probably over time be among my all-time favorites are:

Acherontas | Vamachara
Virgin Black | Sombre Romantic
Kypck | Черно
Melechesh | Emissaries
Neurosis | Souls At Zero
Thy Catafalque | Sgùrr
Kvelertak | Kvelertak

My plan is to document my new discoveries with my Currently Listening... lists and these end-of-year lists. Then I'll eventually create a list (or article) like musclassia's list where I show how my interests have changed over the course of several years.
