The Top Ten
1 Two Towers - Fit for an Autopsy Two Towers - Fit for an Autopsy Cover Art

This is the closest a band has ever got to Gojira. The brilliant intro, the heavy riff, the powerful vocals and the ending solo make this song one of the greatest metal tracks of this year so far.

2 Handshake with Hell - Arch Enemy Handshake with Hell - Arch Enemy Cover Art
3 Dimorphous Display - Loathe Dimorphous Display - Loathe Cover Art

There are no words to describe how good this song is. The 90s feel, the modern super-low tones, the atmosphere. Loathe is one of those genre-defining acts, leading to the future of metal mixing its past with its present sound.

4 Put Your Back Into the Oar - Amon Amarth Put Your Back Into the Oar - Amon Amarth Cover Art

A brand new song from Amon Amarth, can't wait to hear their new album. This reminds me a lot of their older albums as well as newer stuff like Twilight of the Thunder God and Jomsviking.

5 These Walls - Infected Rain These Walls - Infected Rain Cover Art

With the release of their new amazing album, 2022 couldn't start in a better way. This one in particular is the most intense track on the album. The atmosphere is great and Lena's screams in the chorus are insanely emotional and powerful.

6 Paranormalium - Voivod Paranormalium - Voivod Cover Art

This legendary band started 2022 with this single; a chaotic and experimental song which features a strong progressive metal influence (most of the vocals reminded me of Between the Buried and Me).

I haven't heard this one, I might eventually give it a listen as a I'm a pretty big voivod fan.

Considering that I'm a pretty big fan of voivod, I might listen to this.

7 Artificial Suicide - Bad Omens Artificial Suicide - Bad Omens Cover Art

After their previous (and softer) singles, this song shows how heavy these guys can get. Total banger

8 Forgotten - Korn Forgotten - Korn Cover Art
9 Divide & Conquer - Michael Romeo Divide & Conquer - Michael Romeo Cover Art

Symphony X's Michael Romeo created a quite good song with this one. The riffs are really good and this track is a great one to start the progressive metal production of this year.

10 This is It - Nekrogoblikon This is It - Nekrogoblikon Cover Art

The craziest melodic death metal band released one of the best tracks of the year so far. The riff, the chorus and the intro melody are sick.

The Contenders
11 Overpass - Enterprise Earth Overpass - Enterprise Earth Cover Art
12 When We Were Young - Architects When We Were Young - Architects Cover Art
13 Obsidian - Northlane Obsidian - Northlane Cover Art
14 Grains - Konvent Grains - Konvent Cover Art

This song features a really good black/doom metal sound. That riff and the overall atmosphere are amazing

15 Feel Again - Splitmind Feel Again - Splitmind Cover Art

This underrated metalcore/alternative metal band might have just made their best track ever. The guitar work is much more solid here than in their previous work, and the overall sound can be considered a huge improvement of their music. The riffs, especially the opening ones, together with the screaming vocals of alena yakshina, who keeps getting better, make this song a gem in the production of this band.

16 I Reach Into Your Heart - Pridelands I Reach Into Your Heart - Pridelands Cover Art
17 Cyberhex - Motionless in White Cyberhex - Motionless in White Cover Art
18 Let the Devil In - Dark Funeral Let the Devil In - Dark Funeral Cover Art
19 Of Fury - Shadow of Intent Of Fury - Shadow of Intent Cover Art
20 Levitate - Bleed from Within Levitate - Bleed from Within Cover Art

Best song of 2022 so far

21 Red, White & Boom - Motionless in White Red, White & Boom - Motionless in White Cover Art
22 Dream Cull - Abbath Dream Cull - Abbath Cover Art

It seems like black metal is gonna be huge in 2022, with many songs being released so far. However, this is among the best ones. The riff and the vocals provide a wonderful atmosphere

23 Plenty - Northlane Plenty - Northlane Cover Art
24 On the Dark Waters - Amorphis On the Dark Waters - Amorphis Cover Art
25 Sunset Over the Empire - Arch Enemy Sunset Over the Empire - Arch Enemy Cover Art
