Iron Maiden - Book of Souls

It's hard to figure out how awesome this album would be if I've never heard Iron Maiden before. At this point it sound like Maiden rockin' out and Dickenson has a cold. There's no hits on here, and there doesn't need to be. I'll have to listen to this a lot more times to find a stand out. It's a double album of Maiden rockin...and rockin'...Maiden style.

Brothers Collateral - CVIII

Mostly instrumental proggy rock. Leaning to the rock side. 

Bittered - Hubris Aggression

Sounding very much like Eyehategod. Pissed vocals killer down tuned riffs.

Battling Giants - Birth Death Reckoning

I've listened to this quite a few times over the last few months, trying to figure out how to describe them or who they might sound like as reference. I can't figure it out. I guess sort of like an indie/alternative rock thing. They're good, a good rock band.

Sacri Monti - Sacri Monti

Full on dense psychedelic Krautrock fuzzed freak out.

Kinski - 7 (or 8)

Noise rock that rocks. There's some pretty-ish songs to in the Sonic Youth territory. They also plow full steam ahead, reminding me of Hammerhead. There's only vocals on a few songs and they're good and the lyrics are good. I wish there were more vocals.

Skraeckoedlan - Sagor

Progressive stoner rock.

Demon Eye - Tempora Infernalia

Occult rock. Good songs the vocals are a little "weird" but not a deal breaker. 

All Them Witches - Dying Surfer Meets His Maker

Heavy bluesy rocking with lots of atmospheric jams. Really good stuff that doesn't beat you over the head all the time.

Graveyard - Innocence & Decadence

Bluesy rockin' 70's style. Some ballads where the singer totally carries everything. There's one song that basically sounds like a beefed up Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits. 

Fuzz - Fuzz II

A logical progression from Blue Cheer to Mudhoney to Fuzz. Except I'm not sure this is a progression they just do a really good job of it. The biggest difference being the nasaly vocals Otherwise...

Zone Six - Love Monster

Psychedelic jam outs. Instrumental. Pulsing hypnotic bass and rhythm while the guitar takes off to outer space. These guys do it well.

Heavy Rotation - February 2016

  • Kylesa - Exhausting Fire (2015)

Sinister Haze - Betrayed By Time

Heavy laid back stoner rock, like Nebula but heavier.
