Right at the beginning of 2022, we learned that Pallbearer had been working on their fifth LP, following 2020's Forgotten Days. Then they did some touring, including a handful of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2012 debut LP Sorrow And Extinction, but no further word on the new LP. Fingers crossed that we'll learn more in 2023, and meanwhile, bassist Joseph D. Rowland has now shared with us a list of his favorite albums of 2022, featuring releases by Worm, Knoll, Elder, Messa, the Terminal Nation/Kruelty split, and more. Read on for the full list...

Joseph D. Rowland's Favorite Albums of 2022
Elder - Innate Passage
Worm - Bluenothing
Messa - Close
Caterina Barbieri - Spirit Exit
Chrome Ghost - House of Falling Ash
Knoll - Metempiric
Terminal Nation / Kruelty - The Ruination of Imperialism (Split)

Lovelock - Someone
Desire - Escape


Lovelock is the "soft rock disco alter ego" of Steve Moore, and like the Desire record on the list, that album came out this year via Italians Do It Better. Enjoy:
