Alter Bridge The Last Hero
Alter Bridge have become one constant source of quality when it comes to the hard rock genre the last decade or so. I've been supporting since their debut that they are probably one of the top 3 bands in the post-2000 era. Even before its release, there was no doubt that The Last Hero would meet the high expectations. Tremonti's sharp riffing, Phillips' machine-gun drumming and Kennedy's lovable high-pitched vocals are what Alter Bridge have always been. The album itself follows the heavy paths that Fortress laid in a similarly aggressive tone but a bit more melodic. Recommendations: "My Champion", "Show Me a Leader", "The L
Korn The Serenity of Suffering
I've never been Korn's greatest fan but I've enjoyed many of their songs during the years. Having heard a couple of albums after 'Head's' departure, I could not imagine that his contribution to this band was so massive. Now, two albums after his return I can be sure about it. The Serenity of Suffering represents Korn's return to the forefront: heavy riffing, immense growling and catchy choruses. This is what this band was always about and I'm satisfied when I hear them in such a sharp form. Recommendations: "Rotting In Vain", "Insane", "The Hating", "When You're Not There", "Die Yet Another Night"
Rival Sons Pressure And Time
Rival Sons show their calibre with a series of ten exquisite tracks full of energy and passion. Lyrics are simple and straightforward, just like the music. These guys play some ballsy rock 'n' roll full of testosterone in their own distinctive style and character. But the main point is that they do it better than anyone who tried to mimic classic rock legends in the post 2000 era. Retrospectively speaking, Pressure and Time contains some of the band's greatest songs. It's very fluid, pleasant and enthusiastic. It's a punch in the face of those who say that rock is dead. Recommendations: 'Pressure and Time', 'All Over The Road', 'Whit
Tax The Heat Fed To The Lions
Fed To the Lions is a bold, rhythmic and enjoyable record by a quartet of hipsteric Bristolian figures. But don't let their looks influence your choice in hearing their debut album. This is a spectacular result of some hard-rock riffing and relentless energy. The opener 'Highway Home' sets the tone perfectly, although as the album progresses there are greater tracks to come in this 40-minute rock n' roll extravaganza. A notable release for 2016. Recommendations: 'Caroline', 'Your Fool', 'Lost Our Way', 'Fed to the Lions', 'Hit Me Hard', 'Some Sympathy'
A Thousand Horses Southernality
A Thousand Horses with their noble attitude bring a friendly southern rock air in their debut album Southernality. They bring sweet tales of whiskey, women and the familiar gospel atmosphere that many Dixie-rooted bands carry along. The soulful harmonies combined with the country sweetness are factors which will attract you and drive you towards a second listening if the first one had not been clear already. Personally, I found the opening tracks enticing enough to keep me going until the end. This is not your 'album of the year' but definitely an indication that the genre is constantly growing and a mark for another band to look out
Hexvessel When We Are Death
When We Are Death is the first album I hear from Hexvessel. It is melancholic and has a pessimistic atmosphere, however I found it melodic enough to give it some listenings. It is cohesive and interesting but it does not have a top moment. Without listening their prior releases, I think they can do much better. Recommendations: "Earth Over Us", "Transparent Eyeball", "Mirror Boy"
The Answer Solas
The Answer was a band that caught me by surprise last year with their album Raise a Little Hell: powerfull riffing, energetic attitude, delicate melodies. I was eagerly waiting for this year's album to verify my allegiance. Although through the dynamic and atmospheric pre-release tracks "Solas" and "Beautiful World" I thought that something big was coming from the Northern Irish act, the end result was a peculiar landing to new sounds and style. As the band members have admitted in many interviews, the various family issues some of them experienced the last year, had a major role in this. After the lapse of the aforementioned tracks
