Loud Rock Charts: 5/14

Greetings all! Decisions are in and the people have spoken, KZSC’s new Loud Rock Director is I, DJ trev_gore! I’m hoping I can fill in the shoes of your former overlord Brootalisk sufficiently. As first order of action, check out these new rad jams for you headbang and loose your hearing to! Topping the adds we have insanely talented Math Rock/Hardcore greats Dillinger Escape Plan with their latest album One of Us Is The Killer. Be sure to check them out on this tour as they’re going to be ripping faces off all across ‘Merica alongside Faceless and Royal Thunder. Be ready to headwalk, stagedive, and get wacky whilst listening to this album.

Sodom’s Epitome of Torture dropped on our (metal)heads two weeks ago. What the hell? How did I miss that? More importantly, who’s the assbag that forget to send me a memo and do my job for me?

Also, if you have yet to check out The Ocean’s newest record, you are sorely missing out on what is arguably the best record to come out so far this year…and dare I say it of last year as well. Honestly, all of the records listed below are all worth permanently damaging your hearing to, but you already knew that, right?

1 SODOM Epitome Of Torture SPV
2 MASTERS OF METAL Masters Of Metal [EP] Krypto 9
3 UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS Mind Control Metal Blade
4 ATROCITY Okkult Napalm
5 AVANTASIA The Mystery Of Time Nuclear Blast

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).

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.
