Metallica Master of Puppets
I find Master of Puppets to be Metallica's finest hour. Compositions are concretely solid as there are no weak tracks. Performances are electric with Hetfield's aggressive vocals being supported by a mayhem of sharp and thrashy riffs and some instinctive drum patterns. This album contains some of my favorite tracks from the band's catalogue: "Master of Puppets", "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)", "Battery", "Orion".r
Metallica Ride the Lightning
A thrashy opening with Ulrich's double bass and Hetfield shrieking "Fight fire with fire.., sets the tone for Metallica's second album which begins exactly to the point where the debut ended. Its not until second track "Ride The Lightning" where James' trademark riff enters and you realize that there is an improvement from Kill 'Em All. "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "Fade to Black" are the standout tracks of the album but for die hard fans, "Creeping Death" is the brightest star here.
Goodbye June See Where The Night Goes
In their latest release, the trio from Nashville fades away from the hard rock character of Community Inn and instead adopts a rock ?n? roll attitude which is blended greatly with their southern origins. Milbourn's trademark crispy vocals are once again the driving force while the gutsy riffs and the unabating, relentless rhythms make this a solid release.

Recommendations: See Where The Night Goes, Stand and Deliver, Everlasting Love
Volbeat Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies
Outlaw Gentleman & Shady Ladies finds Volbeat adopting a more mainstream/radio-friendly approach dominated by catchy melodies and hooky choruses. Albeit the efforts to expand the band's audience through this approach however, riffs remain aggressive and Metallica-alike, while rhythms are tight and powerful as ever. The album also highlights how skillfully Volbeat can deal with diversity as they are collaborating with King Diamond for "Room 24" on one hand and Sarah Blackwood for "Lonesome Rider" on the other. Recommendations: "Pearl Hart", "Cape Of Our Hero", "Doc Holiday", "Lola Montez", "The Nameless One".r
Sabaton The War To End All Wars
The War to End All Wars features the Swedes? usual mixture of history lessons and individual tales of heroism. Their formula continues to be highly effective as they deliver some huge riffs and their usual bombastic choruses. Lyrical inspiration comes again from WWI and once more there are some interesting stories to be heard. The album's flow is nice as the tracks move from the explosive ones to the slow-paced powerful onesrin a skillful way.

Recommendations: "Stormtroopers", "Hellfighters" "Christmas Truce", "Dreadnought", "Lady of the Dark"
Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse Good Times End Times
Clocking just over thirty minutes, Good Times End Times is a creative album and serves as a decent sophomore release with much diversity in the style of songs. Instead of concentrating on a contemporary blues style as it was done in its debut, the band delivers a result that highlights Greta Valenti's impressive vocal range and the band's southern upbringing in a mixture of blues, country, soul and roots rock tracks.

Recommendations: "Fill Me Up", "Trouble Is Coming", Alone"
The Blue Stones Black Holes
The Blue Stones have entered the catalog of rock duets with a blast. Their debut album Black Holes is short in duration but remains firm and adventurous throughout its thirty-three minutes. The pair from Ontario wrote the material at the late stages of their undergrad studies and the underlying theme is that of an inner quest of who they were, both musically and existentially. This is what the album art also tries to depict with the astronaut in space: a metaphor where the duo leaves solid ground and navigates into a wild and uncertain future.

The first thing that came into mind once the drilling chords of "The Drop" f
