Top 10 Best Metal Songs of 2022

After the amazing year metal had in 2021, we're curious to know what this year will be like in terms of heavy music. Vote for the best metal songs of 2022
The Top Ten
1 Two Towers - Fit for an Autopsy

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
3 Dimorphous Display - Loathe

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

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

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

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

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

8 Forgotten - Korn
9 Pain Remains I: Dancing Like Flames - Lorna Shore

All excellent choices. Lorna Shore s latest "Pain Remains" separated this band from one of the many 'very good metal bands' to a 'great.'

10 Divide & Conquer - Michael Romeo

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.

The Newcomers

? Exodus - Brand of Sacrifice
The Contenders
11 Obsidian - Northlane
12 Spearmint Revolt - Norma Jean
13 Grains - Konvent

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

14 This is It - Nekrogoblikon

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.

15 Levitate - Bleed from Within

Best song of 2022 so far

16 When We Were Young - Architects
17 Feel Again - Splitmind

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.

18 Overpass - Enterprise Earth
19 Red, White & Boom - Motionless in White
20 Dream Cull - Abbath

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

21 On the Dark Waters - Amorphis
22 Godkiller - A Wake in Providence
23 Cyberhex - Motionless in White
24 Watcher in the Sky - Ghost

I always loved they songs and this is one of my favorites already.

25 Sunset Over the Empire - Arch Enemy
