This band has been around for a long time and has been under the radar for a lot, and with some member changes and stuff, maybe more people have heard of them? well, anyway, this is their 2nd album with Fabio Lione on vox. Great sort of epic power metal going on here. Good stuff.

Fight the Fight
Fight the Fight
Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records
This is a sort of metalcore, hardcore, but a bit of a modern accessible sound, there are clean vox parts, but they do’t get all whiny/singy… it’s close!, but still melodic and “lighter” in parts too.

Cloud Factory
Napalm Records
One of the better female fronted metal bands these days. Melodic thrashy stuff then getting into some more brutal thrashy stuff, clean and harsh vox. great well rounded metal going on here!

Nuclear Blast
Just one song from this so far… “Antifa” well, what’s this the 3rd album since retiring? Well, this song as that classic pissed off industrial-ish metal political thing going on. Good stuff.

The Triumph Of Piracy
Napalm Records
Folky pirate metal. Right off the bat with an “ahoy” and bouncy catchy pirate power metal.

My Enemies & I
The Beast Inside
Fearless/Concord Music Group
This is a metalcore almost nu-metal sounding band… has a Korn meets maybe Disturbed type thing going on? short catchy stongs… decent stuff

Death Comes With Silence
With a band name like this, you expect to get your head crushed, right? Well, yeah, that’s about right. Death metal, but with a blackened death feel, maybe some extreme thrash, a little raw crusty stuff… Just great and brutal too. Good stuff.

Rise to Supremacy
Xtreem Music
Catchy heavy metal with a little bit of a Sepultura feel. Big grooves, a little deathy thrash thing happening.

The Fallen King

Kind of a metalcore, extreme vox, big grooves, kind of an old death metal

Another new single, great classic metal song once again!
