In the works this week: Our metal library is full to bursting. We have decided that a good ole purging is in order. We will be going through our Loud Rock section in the library and putting music in the bin to be sold at the cd sale!! If you would like to help with this endeavor leave a comment or send an email to loudrock[at]kzsc[dot]com
1 SLAYER “World Painted Blood” [Single] Columbia – making their way into the double digits this is their tenth studio release.
2 HORSE THE BAND Desperate Living Vagrant – with a unique 8-bit sound this band is most interesting and certainly worth your time checking out.
3 BLACK COBRA Chronomega Southern Lord – their first album on the ‘Southern Lord’ label, if you have heard of and liked Cavity or Acid King then you might dig these guys too. Their new cd cover is reminiscent of Death Magnetic and they sound a bit like a muddier Mastodon.
4 IMMORTAL All Shall Fall Nuclear Blast – crushingly brutal and heavy they also have great songwriting, check out the black metal group immortal on their 8th studio release.
5 LYNCH MOB Smoke And Mirrors Frontiers – Straight up rockers with a sound from the 80s they really sound like a blast from the past. This song made me think of Rocket – Def Lepaprd.
1 METALOCALYPSE: DETHKLOK Dethklok: The Dethalbum II Williams St.
2 HATEBREED Hatebreed E1
3 BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Deflorate Metal Blade
4 MEGADETH Endgame Roadrunner
5 MUNICIPAL WASTE Massive Aggressive Earache

I’m working on setting up a concert calendar for the Loud Rock department, hopefully that will be up and running soon!
As for all the stuff on the charts pretty much all of it is worth your time. Pretty much. There are some exceptional works in there as well.
