Loud Rock: The First Headbang of September

This week in new metal features the stripped down version of Katatonia’s release from last year Dead End Kings. It’s more acoustic and mellow than their past releases, which is saying something since they’re usually pretty chillaxed.

 

Other releases include the theatrical Gwar and the tool-esque Gemini Syndrome.

 

Top 5 Loud Rock in early September:

katatnoia1 KATATONIA Dethroned Uncrowned Kscope
2 GWAR Battle Maximus Metal Blade
