Loud Rock Charts: 12/4

As the year slowly comes to a close, new releases will begin to shrink in size. However, that does not by any means represent the quality of the records. This week sees Cult of Luna’s newest record, Vertikal, on display, with the 2nd track off of the album currently up for stream here: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/cult-of-luna-i-the-weapon-single-stream/. If the single is indicative of the entire album, it’s going to be one hell of a release.

1 CULT OF LUNA “I: The Weapon” [Single] Density
2 CODE ORANGE KIDS Love Is Love/Return To Dust Deathwish

The Rolling Stones at 50

Celebrating 50 years as a band, The Rolling Stones played an incredible night at London’s O2. Bringing out favorites from five decades, they proved to be still able to rock it. Here’s a sample: an extended version of “Midnight Rambler” featuring former 70’s Stones lead guitarist Mick Taylor.
