Seventh Angel - The Dust Of Years

Mostly epic straight up modern day mid-tempo metal. Scary vocals sometimes with melodic backup vocals. Gloomy/sorrowful Count Dracula metal...these guys sound european to me. I don't know where they're from. Their name seems to fit the music pretty well.

Coliseum - House With A Curse

I thought I would like this more. Turns out, I don't really like it at all. They're a good band and all, but I think they're just a little to controled and precise for my taste, and the vocals really rub me the wrong way.

1349 - Demonoir

Typewriter drums with scary vocals. Black metal? I guess. Relentless blur beatdown. Really, what the hell is going on here?

Chaotic Black Metal beatdown.

Mares Of Thrace - The Moulting

Angular mathy hardcore. They remind me of Drive Like Jehu, the vocals especialy. They slow things down too, but where's the bass?

Birdeater - Utah (EP)

Big and heavy. Yelling vocals. Sludgey hardcore chug-a-lug. Feedback too. Occasional quiet parts.

Witchery - Witchkrieg

Thrash with scary vocals and solos. Thrashin' in 2010 where hindsight is 20/20. This thing smokes.

Solace - A.D.

Stoner rock that rocks hard. It's downright chaotic sometimes. Smokin' riffs. Smokin' guitars. A singer that sings, but isn't afraid to do some screaming.

Munetaka Inoue & His Sharp Five

Sounds like the keyboard player from Pink Floyd sitting in with a instrumental surf band in Japan. Cool mellow stuff.

Dragonfly - Dragonfly

It would be hippie rock except they've got biker garage thing going on too. Not to mention the times where the singer is doing a pretty good Jim Morrison impression. Not great but I like their style. For fans of Blue Cheer.

The Doors - The Doors

My favorite Doors album and one of the best albums from the 60's. Solid from front to back.

The Ventures - Super Psychedelics

Instrumental elevator Muzak where surf guitars replace the vocals.

Liverpool Five - Out Of Sight

They've got an Animals thing going on. A little bit of Yardbirds/Kinks. British envasion type stuff sounds like they're a little behind the times. I still can't believe they don't sound like the Beatles. They cover My Generation and stay true to the original. Hoochie Coochie Man. These guys are alright. Not cutting any edges though.Followers.

Dara Puspita - A Go-Go

Girl garage rock from Japan. They sound like The 5,6,7,8's, you know, that band from Kill Bill. They sing in Japanese and English. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. Groovy stuff.

Captain Beefheart - Safe As Milk

Bluesy hillbilly rock.
