Neal Morse
Sola Gratia
Release date: Friday, September 11, 2020
Neal Morse is back with some more prog, while this is a religious album, it’s basically the lyrical content and follow up to the Sola Scriptura album, it’s still full on prog with my man, Portnoy on drums. Some of the stuff on here is more just prog rock, but some pushing into the metal realm. As a fan boy, i’m down with this…

With a band name like this, you can probably guess it’ll be heavy… this is actually a bit more catchy/melodic and not full on brutal murder metal. It’s got a heavy thrash thing going on…. cool stuff.

Idiot Robot
Idiot Robot
Dead Games Records
Described as “Death Pop/Indie Rock from US” Usually when something says “pop” I don’t even bother downloading, but this “death pop” had piqued my curiousity… It does have a hard grungy quality to it, but it is pretty much just alt/pop rock with an occasional growly going on

Album: Strike Hard
Label: Pitch Black Records
Release date: September 4th, 2020
Classic metal from the UK… I had to double check that the singer was not Bruce Dickinson, sounds JUST LIKE him.
