Killer Be Killed Killer Be Killed
This doesn't sound like I thought it would, but I ended up enjoying it big time. The diversity between Troy, Max and Greg's vocals gives the songs lots of twists in tone, all while offering some really heavy riffs and mind-blowingly fluid rhythms. Don't let the radio-friendly opener fool you; this is heavy stuff from one of the best metal supergroups to appear in a while.
Mount Salem Endless
With a tight grip on psychedelia and Black Sabbath proto-metal, all topped off with a distinctive and unique vocalist at the mic, Mount Salem make an invigorating trip with Endless, an album that finally adds some spice to the doom metal brew.

Trioscapes Digital Dream Sequence
Channeling the spirits of classic King Crimson, Trioscapes don't do well with leading the listener into their brand of jam madness, instead deciding to blow their mind from the get-go. Digital Dream Sequence is rampantly impenetrable, but it's worth working through the spiralling sax trills and quantum physics drum rhythms to get to its lush rewards.

Thousand Foot Krutch Oxygen: Inhale
It's bad enough that this album is so simple and derivative, but when you have to work to find a legitimate radio hook in a mainstream rock album, you've hit rock bottom. This is Thousand Foot Krutch's worst album yet, one that's dull and downright awkward to listen to.
