Loud Rock Charts: 7/17

Ever been immensely excited for an album but when it finally comes out, you’re disappointed by how it turned out? I know the feeling, trust me. This summer however I have not been disappointed by a single record, not even the new hyped-up Periphery album. This is seriously turning out to be one of the best summers for meta, in my honest opinion.

If any of you out there are fans of metal (which, if you’re reading this, is a safe assumption), you better check out Baroness’ new album, Yellow and Green. They’re currently streaming it over http://www.npr.org/2012/07/08/156292608/first-listen-baroness-yellow-and-green. Also, here’s a relevant opportunity to plug my interview with Baroness’ Peter Adams!

Anyone excited for the upcoming Olympics? I sure as hell am. I can’t wait to see if Michael Phelps can repeat his phenomenal performance in Beijing. What I’m most excited for, though, is to watch Usain Bolt compete. Call me unamerican, but I love watching that man run.

Summer tours are beginning to roll around. Just last week I was at the Death to All Tour, this week I’ll be seeing Russian Circles, and the following month I’ve got The Contortionist (hopefully) and shortly after Summer Slaughter (insert metal roar here). If you’re into mosh pits and bleeding out your ears, you’ve got quite a big summer ahead of you.

Congratulations to all graduates of UCSC 2012! I personally went to my college’s (Crown) gradutation ceremony to see some of my closest friends move on to bigger and better things. It’ll be sad seeing some of them go, but I am very excited for what is in store for them. Once again, congrats to each and every one of you!
