Doom Charts – 2022 Favorites – Jasper Hesselink

Weirdo is his middle name! And that’s why he fits perfect among the Doom Charts Contributors. Joining us only two months ago in November 2022 is Jasper Hesselink. Who you might know from his very own Weirdo Shrine blog or his No Man’s Valley band. (Facebook) On Weirdo Shrine he expertly dives into all that experimental folk, kraut, psych, drone and prog that seems to float around in the Heayv Underground. He has a knack for finding that weird band that you just found out about a moment sooner… Or as he once stated himself: “Has been writing reviews for zines like Lords Of Metal and Bearded Gentlemen for ages. Always on the lookout for music that stretches boundaries and stimulates the imagination, be it mindboggling technical death metal or hypnotizing psychrock from other worlds. I like cheese, sing in a band, and I am from Nowhere.” Will you know any of his favorite 2022 albums? Go find out!

“I am very proud that this has been the second full year of Weirdo Shrine blog. More people than ever read my weirdo rants, and even better; I talked to a lot of my favorite artists! They are the reason for doing it, and I just love to participate in the art I enjoy.
For my 20 albums of 2022 therefore I picked solely albums from artists I got to properly talk to.  I have included the article, so enjoy. Shout out to all the labels, artists, and PR people that worked with me, here’s to more of that good stuff in 2023 guys, cheers!”
