Nov 042018
 

Slipknot
“All Out Life”
Roadrunner
A surprise single from Slipknot! It’s fashionable for “troo” metalheads to bash Slipknot, but they really are a solid metal band, and were a gateway for some to more undergound and other metal. This single sounds like it could have come from the Iowa sessions. Gritty, heavy, and unmistakably Slipknot!

Bamboo Star
No Hard Feelings
Vertusent
Classic metal, clean vox a bit of a pop metal thing.

Ashes Of Ares
Well Of Souls
Rock Of Angels Records
First album in 5 years! Former Iced Earth frontman’s band…, Matt Barlow… singing his ass off… and even though co-founder Van Williams officially left the band, he guests on Drums for the album. (yeah, right?) But yeah a good solid classic/proggy metal for fans of, well, Nevermore and Iced Earth!

Architects UK
Holy Hell
Epitaph Records
modern metalcore-ish type stuff.
