Onwards and Upwards in 2023!



Onwards and Upwards in 2023!

Best of wishes to each and everyone out there! May 2023 be as rockin’ as 2022 was! Cause we’ve got the conclusion of the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown of 2022. Number 1 was the new Elder record Innate Passage according to all the votes that came in. But of course all you crazy followers voted for many many many more albums. We won’t be sharing the total list of 620 albums, but we will share the Top 21 to 100. Which we feature below. With Greenbeard and their Variant album missing exactly 1 point to make it to the Top 20 and Grin with their Phantom Knocks album 258 to do exactly the same. Which shows that many albums are close together in points in that Top 100. And quite a few have the same amount of points. If would go down the list to Number 100 in actual points, we would have to add another 27 albums. Which would make Sönus and their Usurper Of The Universe album the 100th spot on the list. But we’re sticking with the list below. And marvel, like we do at the end of every year, at the amount of amazing freaking heavy music release this year! Let’s hope 2023 brings as much once again!!

The above links, link to mentions on Stoner HiVe. This year we only link to actual reviews of that album... (Or lead single.) If there is no link, we did not review the album on Stoner HiVe ... And we should be flogged for it! Tarred and feathered and dragged through the streets...
