Members of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill. This is want we have been training for folks!

Second single from the new album and I’m hooked. I haven’t really enjoyed a Metallica album since ReLoad. But these new songs have the production and sound engineering of the black album and the Load albums; the fluid guitar of Justice and the black album; and Lars’ drumming hasn’t been this driving and dynamic since Justice. Cannot wait to hear the whole album.

Punk. Yes please!

This melodic prog-metal band from Sydney, Australia just gets better with each release.

Melodic prog-metal from Brisbane, Australia this time. Something delicious is brewing in this genre down under!

Some lite, but good indie rock for a change

And we close with just raw guitar talent.

This concept album left me speechless. Mesmerizing modern prog-rock.

Just damn good melodic modern rock.

Solid melodic hard rock, once again, from Oslo musician.

Instead of space-rock, how about water-rock?

Some claim this is the heaviest album of all time, and the only stoner album you need after Black Sabbath’s albums. Thoughts?
