Exodus - Bonded By Blood

It's thrash metal, and it's one of the best. Fast. It's a cornerstone of thrash and was very influential, but never one of my favorites.

-Turns out this album gets better and better as it progresses.

Suicidal Tendencies - Suicidal Tendencies

Fraction - Moon Blood

Somber psyche tinged hard rock. The singer sets this one apart from the average. At his worst he's a whimpy hippie. At his best he's a drunk howling Jim Morrison. I like the guitar playing on here quite a bit as well. If you like early Stooges type rawness. Yeah, Stooges meets the Doors at church hippy picnic. There's something that's "messed up" about this. That may be the factor that makes this album stand out.

May Blitz - 2nd Of May

Hard rockin' and Third Stone From The Sun type jam outs. Groovyness and dark trippyness.
Good production. A couple of mello songs that bring to mind Pink Floyd or Black Sabbath. Sometimes Spinal Tap comes to mind too. An English Spinal Tap at their peak.
