Ever since he joined back in 2021, he’s been giving us the best information about the Heavy Underground in France, which is why he is an integral part of Métal Intégral… Below you find his favorite 20 albums of 2022 and once heard, these will all stick with you forever… Even after the clock strikes twelve…
