Monstrosity
Cosmic Pandemia – single
Metal Blade Records
First new stuff in a while, and this is awesome right off the bat, technical, brutal, heavy… great stuff.

CRAFT
White Noise and Black Metal
Season of Mist
A bit of a classic black metal sound, decent production, cold, dark, a good melodic base.

Bury Tomorrow
“The Age”
Sony
modern metalcore stuff, screamy growly vox going to clean uptempo clean vox in the chorus… heavier parts are decent, but probably the more emo-ish melodic parts aren’t really for the ‘pit.

Coheed and Cambria
“Unheavenly Creatures”
Roadrunner
Another single, a bit more commercial alt-rock sounding on this one…

Bullet For My Valentine
Gravity
Spinefarm Records
Great music, catchy, melodic, accessible too, but overall for a metal band, it is accessible, and can appeal to a wide audience

Immortal
Northern Chaos Gods
Nuclear Blast USA
Well, this band has certainly been around for a while and had some changes… well this album is worth the wait. Classic catchy, yet brutal and melodic black metal. Great stuff.

3 long tracks of classic old school cold, dark, evil black metal… but dig deeper and there are some good grooves going on.

Well, it says that its “prog/art/psychedelic rock” I’d have to say yeah, it’s pretty much that, just some old school sounding proggish rock. Not Mosh Pit material.

The Night Flight Orchestra
Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
I’m a sucker for this band… it’s not really metal, but the attitude is there, metal members, and their now fourth album! Catchy and throwback just like the others… great stuff.

This is some russian hard rock/alt metal type stuff. Fairly commerical metal sounding, good catchy stuff, but probably a bit too “alt” for the Mosh Pit…
