2022 has come to an end. And what a year it was. Loads of new albums were released, we left covid behind us, and live shows are possible once more!
In all genres new music came to us. Big names like Rammstein and Arch Enemy dropped new albums but also lesser known and upcoming acts like Tungsten and Slashy Sue gave us new music to enjoy! And like Maizter Underground did last year, we all made a favourite list of albums that were released in 2022.
Today we present you the top 10 list of Sven! Sven joined us at the very beginning, is owner and creator of German based WebMetal, and a respected and talented writer! Sven’s main role with Maizter Underground is that of charismatic interviewer!
