MetalBite's Top Albums Of 2022

The list to end all lists! I put out a notice that we were getting an AOTY compilation to our writers similar to how we did last year, and way more people piled on. Between all of these, you'll get a really good idea of MetalBite's tastes. Nothing like having a huge list of sweet albums to check out in the new year.

Let's have a look! You'll notice Benjamin, Michael and myself (Nathan) from the monthly Top 10s we do. Maybe we'll see more of these folks contributing to future lists.
