The votes are done... Who will succeed Mastodon?
CALGEPO - 07.02.2023 -
5 picture(s) - (8) comment(s)

The previous year saw a bitter struggle between Mastodon and Iron Maiden. The Americans had beaten the English by a narrow margin. In 2022, Porcupine Tree and Devin Townsend were the favourites... Until our reviewers delivered their verdict.  These new albums of the two heavyweights have divided the editorial staff, being both ranked in the top and in the disappointments and are in the middle of the table. So it's a top 5 like the site (varied) that is revealed to you. There is something for everyone. And don't hesitate to give us your Top 5 !


1er 
SOILWORK
  "Övergivenheten"
(17 points)



Equal in points with the runner-up but cited more times, Soilwork narrowly wins the title of album of the year. The Swedes are at the top of their game and continue to renew themselves and offer unmissable albums, thus preserving their status as leaders of the melodeath scene (Struck). A nice gateway to their unique universe (Progracer).




2ème
JOURNEY
  "Freedom"
(17 points)



The return of Journey did not go unnoticed and it was tied for second place. It only owes its second place by one hundredth of a citation. The Americans' 2022 vintage is a real joy. Praise be to them for showing, after so many years and so much success, such a desire to satisfy their fans who have been fulfilled here (Lynott). Great melodies, a lot of feeling from the musicians (Torpedo).




3ème
RED MOURNING
: "Flowers & Feathers"
(15 points)



The only French band in the top 5, Red Mourning justifies its third place thanks to an album that was a real favourite for the editors. Between rage, energy and melody, this record is a must-have of the past year (Thibautk). The French really turn a corner with this fifth album, a true condensation of their blues metal with irresistible charm (Struck).




4ème
DIRTY SHIRT 
"Get Your Dose Now"
(14 points)



Let's go to Romania for this 4th place with the short but very efficient "Get Your Dose Now!" so symbolic. The metal-folk sounds of Dirty Shirt's sixth album never cease to make our ears sparkle (Adrianstork). A band that must be discovered on stage! (Struck)




5ème
SOUP
  "Visions"
(12 points)



Fans of progressive and art rock are not forgotten in this ranking with Soup which once again confirms all the good things Music Waves thinks of them. If one had to find a synonym for the word "melancholy", "Soup" could easily do the trick. Spleen assured with this album which could well be the swan song of the Norwegian band (Corto1809).

@KingEddie. Je ne l'ai pris comme un reproche. Mais il me semblait qu'on en avait déjà parlé...

Heureusement qu'il y a quelques lecteurs de MW qui justement attirent l'attention sur les artistes n'ayant pas eu la chance d'être chroniqués...il n'y avait aucune forme de reproche dans mes propos...

@spirit of summer. On l'a fait il y a 2 ou 3 ans. On s'est retrouvé avec tous les fans de certains groupes français qui ont voté pour leur groupe préféré ... et un vote totalement biaisé ...

Ça pourrait être intéressant d’inviter les lecteurs du site à voter pour le classement annuel, ça permettrait d’avoir un panel d’avis plus large, éventuellement faire un classement « lecteurs » et un classement « chroniqueurs »… À voir pour l’an prochain ?!
