Quayde LaHue Quayde LaHue
Slightly raw and garage-y heavy rock that is equally influenced by the heavy atmosphere of Pentagram and the dual guitar work of Thin Lizzy. The rhythm section is tight, the riffs bring to mind KISS, the female vocals have a lot of potential and the songwriting is interesting enough to keep the listener's attention.

Anathema The Optimist
To state that The Optimist consists of poor songs or it is an awful album would be inaccurate. However, Anathema have found a formula which works for them and allows them to write beautiful songs but at the same time everything feels so safe, harmless and calculated. Is their music emotional? It feels like it but to me it is only superficial because emotional music is not calculated or so linear. Are their songs beautiful? They are cute but lack any serious substance that would elevate them. Most of all, this is not what Anathema used to mean. It almost feels that they are afraid to progress or they lack the necessary inspiration. Pe

Shotgun Valium The Story Of Frank Tranquill
Fuzzy stoner/heavy rock which might sound like your typical stoner but that doesn't take away the fact that the German power trio is well-rehearsed and the guys know how to play. There are influences from bands like Orange Goblin and The Atomic Bitchwax and I think I hear some grunge elements even though it might be my idea. I'd love to see Shotgun Valium working more on their brand of stoner and their songwriting in order to create more memorable songs.

The Obsessed Sacred
At this point of his career, Wino is like a less popular/less revered Lemmy as he is one of the most important living figures in the world of rock/metal. Sacred is not your typical doom metal record as it's sleazy, injected with generous doses of blues and biker rock and sprinkled with some punk. It is really surprising that Wino even at this stage of his career has so many quality riffs in him which help in making this album feel that it last less than it actually does.

Christian Mistress Possession
Great album containing heavy rock/proto-metal. This sounds as if the evolution of heavy metal stopped with bands like Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Dust, Sir Lord Baltimore, etc. Therefore, this is not technically heavy metal rather than heavy psych/hard rock.

Below Upon a Pale Horse
Very interesting slab of melodic/epic doom metal with instrumentation that brings to mind Nightfall/Ancient Dreams-Candlemass and vocals that are reminiscent of Tad Morose's Urban Breed or even Michael Kiske. The songwriting is excellent as the album is very atmospheric and grand, while the vocals bring a power metal flavor which makes the offering less monolithic than your typical doom. The only thing which remains to be seen is how Upon a Pale Horse will age and whether it will make me want to jam it in the future.
