Trivium
The Sin And The Sentence
Roadrunner
I think by now, you know what you’re going to get with Trivium, catchy yet accessible thrashy metal. Technical, heavy and brutal in parts, kind of melodic death, but also metalcore-ish too.

Appice
Sinister
SPV
For the first time ever, the Appice brothers are together to make an album. A mostly classic metal album with well, two drummers! It features a super star line-up of random Bass, guitar and vocalists. Good solid hard rockin’ stuff.

A Decade of Delain (Disc 1)
Napalm Records
A live album of some of the better stuff from Delain over the years, femaled fronted metal. Comes across a bit heavier than the studio stuff… symphonic and epic feeling too.
