Loud Rock Charts: 10/9

I think now is a very worthwhile time to point out the amazing upcoming metal albums that are dropping in this metallest of months. The list is as follows: BTBAM, Daylight Dies, Enslaved, Dethklok, Downfall of Gaia, Converge, Sylosis, Wintersun, Behold the Arctopus, and of course Neurosis. I’m sure I’ve forgotten many, but it’s hard to keep track when there have been no less than 25 albums released this year that, on their own, could probably win an Album of the Year award or two. Seriously, how good of a year is 2012 shaping up to be for us headbanging metalheads? We better enjoy it while we can, because it definitely won’t last forever…

School has officially started up again here at UCSC, and that means I’m  multi-tasking between classes, digging through the newest batch of Loud Rock sent to KZSC and trying to watch the NFL.

TesseracT, known for being very finicky with their vocalists, have finally found their newest singer, Ashe O’Hara, who will hopefully be a more permanent addition than their last two. You can hear a snippet their newest song “Nocturne”, which showcases some of O’Hara’s talent. Here’s to a hopefully long and bright future for Ashe O’Hara and the rest of TesseracT!

I just moved in to my new dorm yesterday here at UCSC. I’m living all by lonesome, and since I’ve moved in early the entire building is empty. That on top of the fact that I’ve been playing Slender and watching Marble Hornets recently isn’t doing any good to my sanity. At least I now know what it is like to have a grown man scream in my ear. Yay?
