Recent Digs

Just putting out there a few albums that have really impressed me rlately, and hope to get some rrrmore recognition for the unknown rbands. :)
1 Eden's Curse

Really fun and energetic metal album with great vocals and slick guitar
work. Fans of melodic metal will enjoy this. Download: "No Holy Man",
"Jerusalem Sleeps", "Can't Fool the Devil"
2Michael Angelo Batio
No Boundaries

Fans of progressive metal and guitar albums along the vein of Satch, Vai or
Petrucci will enjoy this. It's proggy, heavy in parts and fast while
maintaining controlled and melodic. Download: "Rain Forest", "Science
Fiction", "No Boundries"
3 Vinnie Moore
Mind's Eye

Another awesome guitar album, fans of Satriani will definitely enjoy this.
Download "Hero Without Honor", "Lifeforce"
4Death Angel
Relentless Retribution

Heavy, chugging thrash metal that's on par with 80s thrash. Really
adrenaline pumping stuff, don't be put off by the metalcor-y vocals in
"Claws in So Deep", the rest is killer. Download: "Truce", "River of Rapture",
"This Hate"
Second Life Syndrome

Like a mix between Dream Theater, Tool and Porcupine Tree, this is more or
less an essential album for prog fans. Download: "Volte-Face", "Second Life
Syndrome", "Dance with the Shadow"
6Tony Macalpine
Maximum Security

Another great fun guitar album. Very 80s in sound, this is another good
guitar album that's a lot more straightforward than Vinnie Moore or MAB.
Download: "Autumn Lords", "Hundreds of Thousands"
Focus III

Criminally under-rated band on here, this is a great prog rock record that's
fun, catchy and fairly easy to digest. Download: "Sylvia", "Round Goes the
Gossip", "Anonymous II"
8Astral Projection
Trust in Trance

Been getting into Psytrance a lot recently through a few friends at house
parties, and this was rec'd to me. Really awesome album, any Psytrance fan
needs to give this a spin. Download: "Kabalah", "People Can Fly"
9Deep Purple

Not as good as the classic 2 albums it's sandwiched between, but a damn
fine listen. Hard Rock fans will love this. Download: "Fireball", "No No No",
10James LaBrie
Static Impulse

Needs more recognition. James's voice on this is his best since Images,
IMO. Really melodic metalcore-y album that's something different for DT
fans to listen to while waiting for A Dramatic Turn of Events. Download:
"Mislead", ""Euphoric", "This Is War"
