New Stuff:

Sinner's Blood - The Mirror Star

A good new band. Mainstream-ish rock, but with good songs and big hooks.

Armored Saint - Punching The Sky

The sound more like Bush-era Anthrax than ever. I actually think that's a good thing. Bush era > Belladonna era.

Lords Of Black - Alchemy Of Souls

Boring stuff. They sound disinterested, and I don't buy for a second this record was so amazing Romero had to rejoin the band. I firmly believe he's only back because none of his other projects caught on.

Old Stuff:

Jimmy Eat World - Futures

Sure, it's probably too emo, but it's also fantastic. I love the atmosphere of this one. It's what "Pinkerton" should have been.

Killswitch Engage - S/T (2009)

My favorite of theirs, by a wide margin. I totally get why most fans hate it, and that's precisely why I like it. It's their tightest, and best written album. When he's on, Howard is amazing.

Dan Swano - Moontower

Proving to myself once again it's not harsh vocals I hate, but the lazy writing that usually comes with them.
