Moon Duo - Mazes

Spacemen 3 and Velvet Underground rolled into a ball. Pavement, Devo and The Cars rolled into a smaller ball. Then, smashed up and squeezed into Moon Duo.

Municipal Waste - The Fatal Feast

Retro crossover. Probably a couple D.R.I. albums you should have before this. Heck, there's probably a couple Municipal Waste albums you should have before this one.

Burzum - Umskiptar

Not really feeling this spoken word Black Metal.

Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind

People say this is the weakest in Iron Maidens run of great albums. Well, I don't know about that.

Epic Black Metal.

High On Fire - De Vermis Mysteriis

Even better than the last High On Fire record.

Angel Witch - As Above, So Below

New Angel Witch sounds a lot like old Angel Witch, but not as good.

Virus - The Agent That Shapes The Desert

Early Sonic Youth and Hammers Of Misfortune share a donut at the Celtic Faire.

Thot - Obscured By The Wind

Faith No More meets Rammstien for lunch in France while Nine Inch Nails poisons the food.

Horse Latitudes - Awakening

Big slow heavy repetitive and really slow. Repetitive.

Electric Wizard - Legalize Drugs And Murder

Sounds like outtakes from one of the last couple Electric Wizard albums. Like Metallica, Electric Wizard will never live up to expectations. Two songs

Stubb - Stubb

High quality 70's style stoner rock. Earthless, Pearls and Brass, Dead Meadow type guitar hero stuff.

Celebrate - Souls Abyss

Ghetto roaming blackish metal aggressiveness. Crusty two songs.

Black Breath - Forward To Regression

Punishing hardcore. Sounds like the album you wish Slayer would put out. Recommended for all angry teenagers.

Maruta - Forward Into Regression

Crazy chaotic hardcore punishment.

-Been gettin' lots of air time in the car... when I can take it.

Implodes - Black Earth

Ambient indy.

Premonition 13 - 13

No surprises from Wino here, but I think I like this one better than some of his previous projects.

Morne - Asylum

Driving heaviness like Zororoaster.

Lonely Kamel - Dust Devil

Starts out white boy blues, but turns's stoner rock.

Honeycomb Bones - Evil Age

Garagey-underground rock that's got a White Stripes vibe.

-Roots garage rock.

Electric Sister - The Lost Art Of Rock & Roll

High energy rock with some swagger. -It's sounds like a band Slash would put together or Nikki Sixx. Dudes trying to stay relevant, but their heyday was a long time ago.
