Witherfall - Nocturnes and Requiems. Cool new band
ahh this is finally out. just checked it out. very cool! I am glad the White Wizzard guitar guy is going places. He's quite the shredder.

Moon Tooth - Chromaparagon. The guitarist in this band is the new second guitarist in Riot, and he's amazing.
Didn't know about the Riot connection. Wouldn't have guessed guitarist was up for that to be honest. I only saw them live and he wasn't really shredding much in the classic sense of the word. the band is cool enough. saw them open for Thank you Scientist recently.

Spellcaster - Night Hides the World. Really strong retrad with a great singer. Not as essential as Holy Grail, but at least on par with Visigoth. I
Holy Grail ? seriously ? have to disagree there. Spellcaster is pretty cool, though the best songs on this, especially the video single, are very much better than the rest . Saw them last week open for Starkill. Singer's voice is not as epic live as on record but still pretty solid and fun show. Visigoth is on another level though IMHO. Singer is a monster live , just as good as in studio.

Southern Sons - discography
wow, the coolest random youtube discovery. a must for AOR crowd. I assume Joe-X knows them? one of the most beautiful voices to ever sing rock music. shreds on guitar too. Virgil Donati on drums. I wish I knew about them sooner, apparently singer had a one off gig in the area a few months ago.
cool extended version showcasing singer's classy jazzy guitar skills

Sellsword - if Damien Wilson fronted an epic true metal band it would sound like this. Another Pirage super find.

need - song for freedom
ok, I now realize why I like this . This sounds exactly like Nevermore on some songs. really good.

poem - skein syndrome
another cool Greek band. nice riffs and earnest vocals. this a bit more Tool like.
