Shift - Lead, Judge & Jury. Second album of modern radio-thirsty metal by Rich Davis and Chris Lembach of the late, lamented Mystic Force. The first Shift album featured quite a lot of riffing that I could immediately recognize as Rich's handiwork (the guy had serious style) but this one has much less of that, sounding like a mash-up of every Disturbed-adjacent mall metal band of the last 15 years, plus some Alice in Chains. The singer is pretty good for the style, but the style does not ask much of singers. I wish Rich would just fucking reclaim Mystic Force from Keith, who is obviously and completely unfit to be the steward of that once-great band.
I don't know if I have ever heard this. I own Creating a Monster.
Dyoxen - First Among Equals. I always forget how fun this is, and also how melodic.
This is not a classic for you? It's an all-time fave for me.
