The Pretty Reckless – Going To Hell
The no BS gritty, rock and roll sound of The Pretty Reckless is exactly what we need in a world of auto tuned synth saturated garbage.
Judas Priest – Redeemer of Souls
…It’s Judas Priest….how do you not love Judas Priest? Priest IS the definition of METAL.
Slipknot – .5: The Gray Chapter
Insanely good return album for Slipknot after the 6 year gap from All Hope Is Gone. Glad to see them back in action after losing Paul and after the departure of Joey.
Periphery – Clear (EP)
The fact that each song was written by different members and is still tied together by a single melody is completely mind blowing. Totally inspirational!
Arch Enemy – War Eternal
The whole LP “screams” back to the classical era with all the baroque style guitar licks, riffs and solos. Not to mention Alissa White-Gluz makes an awesome new front woman for the band!
Godsmack – 1000hp
This was a great way for the band to return to the music world. It is a well balanced album with catchy instrumental parts and lyrical content that addresses a different topic in each song.
Steel Panther – All You Can Eat
Slash with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators – World On Fire
Classic Slash riffs and Myles Kennedy’s vocals compliment the instrumentals perfectly.
