Mostly new music I've heard. :]
1Crowbar
Symmetry in Black


Album brings the riffz, however I feel like I've heard a lot of this before by different
artists. Definitely sludgy.
2Glamour of the Kill
Savages


Ranges from pretty good shredfest to godawful typical post-hardcore with
misogynistic and audience-baiting lyrics.
3Sylar
To Whom It May Concern


Shit music, shit production, lol Caleb Shomo (ok, so Beartooth actually isn't that bad)
4 Mushroomhead
The Righteous & The Butterfly


Is OK, production is weak, and the band seems to have lost a lot of energy from
the glory days of XX.
5The Orwells
Disgraceland


Band has talent, it's just that they use it to further every "teenage music" trope on
the planet (garage rock, punk, surf music, etc. etc.)
6The Last Vegas
Sweet Salvation


Album brings the rawk - which is to say, standard Guns n' Roses-aping radio rock.
7La Sera
Hour of the Dawn


Moar generic indie punk.
8Prong
Ruining Lives


Has a few good thrashy jams, although I expected better from these guys.
9Parquet Courts
Sunbathing Animal


Has germs of some great ideas, and the production is equally great, it just seems
the band drones on for too long on one idea.
10The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Days of Abandon


Super sexy album art, unfortunately, that's about all I can say for this
11 Timo Tolkki's Avalon
Angels of the Apocalypse


Cheesy power metal is cheesy. Synth work is great though, I will give it that.
12Metsatoll
Karjajuht


Nicely executed folk metal from Estonia, the production doesn't do it favors though
13Syd Arthur
Sound Mirror


Great throwback to the Canterbury scene of yore. If you're looking for an
instrumental that will blow you away, look up "Singularity".
14Trap Them
Blissfucker


Album brings the riffz more than 1, very Converge-ish, no wonder Kurt Ballou
produced this
15Royal Blood
Out of the Black


Radio rock executed perfectly.
16White Sea
In Cold Blood


From Morgan Kibby, M83 collaborator, comes a super-80's sounding album with
stunning vocals (check "Future Husbands Past Lives" if you don't believe me)
17Eyehategod
Eyehategod


First I've heard this band, damn it if this doesn't turn out to be on my end-of-year
list. Grooves, and grooves HARD
18Rage Against the Machine
Evil Empire


I didn't love this quite as much as the self-titled (hard to beat tho), but this still
remains a shining example of RATM's songcraft.
19Avenged Sevenfold
Nightmare


Might be my favorite A7X record next to Waking the Fallen.
20American Authors
Oh, What a Life


I've only heard "Best Day of My Life", do I really need to listen to the rest of this to
know this is terrible? Didn't think so.
