Best Of 2022 Death Metal

Shieeet, here we go again...
Best death metal AD 2022 according to myself, listed alphabetically by band name with subgenres. Some notable omissions include: Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Decapitated, Fallujah, Lorna Shore, Omophagia, Paganizer and Temple Of Void. These left me a bit disappointed so I chose not to include them on the list proper, even though I enjoyed all the bands' newest albums. I'm also still catching up on a lot of records so this list will be updated semi-regularly. Hopefully you will find something you haven't heard here. Feel free to recommend stuff in the comments. Enjoy!

1. Abysmal Dawn - Nightmare Frontier
2. Acephalix - Theothanatology
3. Aeternam - Heir Of The Rising Sun
4. Aethereus - Leiden
5. Allegaeon - Damnum

2022: Jan-Jun

Honestly curious to see if I get anywhere near 2021's ludicrous album count (~900) this year; should hopefully be some very high-scoring albums in the first couple of months, but otherwise let's hope for some good stuff this year!

Edit: Somehow managed to reach the list character limit, so going to delete some of the comments

1. Persefone - Metanoia
2. Hath - All That Was Promised
3. Rolo Tomassi - Where Myth Becomes Memory
4. Playgrounded - The Death Of Death
5. Kardashev - Liminal Rite
