Doom Charts – 2022 Favorites – Ioannis Valiakos

Whenever something heavy comes up out of the Heavy Underground of Greece, you know Ioannis Valiakos knows everything about it. Always there when an extra blurb is needed for the regular edition and always anxious to write another one for the Peroration Post, and he’s been doing that since November 2021. He also founded his very own Desert Vulture blog and we assume he is still a sort of creative member and wildcard from the band Dendrites. Desert Vulture, great name for a that little thing Ioannis does so well. But will we see any Greece bands on his list of Favorite albums of 2022? Go scroll down and find out!
