Amorphis-album-cover

Loud Rock Charts: 4/30

With these last adds/charts comes the end of April, and the beginning of something beautiful. And metal. Can we dub this month “Metal May”? Because there are some seriously mindblowing tours coming to the Bay Area and Santa Cruz over the course of the next 4 weeks.

Inhale…

We’ve got Gorod/Fallujah on May 3rd, Cancer Bats/Kvelertak/Black Tusk on May 7th, Arsis on May 16th, Cannibal Corpse/Napalm Death/Immolation on May 17th, Dillinger Escape Plan/Faceless/Royal Thunder on May 19th, Kylesa on May 24th, Opeth/Katatonia on May 26th, and finally Decapitated on May 30th.

Phew.

I don’t know when May decided to go the way of the headbangers, but I sure as hell am not complaining.

TheOcean-Pelagial

Loud Rock Charts: 4/23

This week has been unexpectedly awesome in terms of our metal adds for the week. We’ve got The Ocean’s highly anticipated record, which comes in two versions, one with vocals and one without. If for some reason growly vocals don’t do it for you, I highly suggest checking out the instrumental version of the album. It’s arguably one of the best releases this year has seen so far.

Other great adds include Shining’s follow up to Blackjazz, a weird avant-garde mind-fuckery of sorts, and Arsis’ Unwelcome, which is most certainly welcome (har har).

This week in new loud rock features the newest album from the band from hell Ghost B.C. with Infestissumam. We’ve also got the latest, and some might say greatest, from Whitechapel in The Somatic Defilement.

Other interesting releases include Suicidal Tendencies most recent album, and black metal outfit Woe who have been making waves in their respective genre’s scene.

Coming right out of left field this week is a new album by Volbeat, who found mainstream success with their last album, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven. This time around, however, they’re coming back with some of the heaviest stuff they’ve ever put forth.

Also coming your way is no-nonsense hard rock band Owl with The Right Thing, and intense death metal outfit Pyrithion’s (no, not the chemical) The Burden of Sorrow.

This just in: all members from Kvelertak found rendered unconscious in a freak belly dancing accident.

Also, April Fools.

However, you know what isn’t a really bad joke? This week’s charts!

Loud Rock Charts: 3/26

Happy Spring Break! I hope everyone has been having a very metal vacation because I sure have. I’ve been booty bumpin Thy Art is Murder’s newest album, Hate, and Byzantine’s self titled comeback record.

By the way, if you are a fellow concert goer, you should check out Summer Slaughter’s lineup here. Being a prog head, I’m incredibly excited for this show. It’s got some of the most forward thinking bands currently out there writing awesome music. You can also vote for the opening band (here), one of whom on that potential list is our #1 add for this week. Personally, I voted for Intervals, but to be honest there’s no way you could go wrong here.
