Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases July 15, 2022

This was another week where I didn’t have much on my radar as far as what was coming out. However, like always, after doing a bit of research and a lot of critical listening, I found some true gems. After sifting through over 80 albums of various rock and metal genres, these are my favorite albums and EPs released between July 9th and 15th.
