Loud Rock Charts: 1/29

The week of January 29th brings upon us a very heavy slew of metal. Arguably the best record to drop so far, Vertikal sees Cult of Luna further themselves as the leaders in the post metal genre. I thought it was pretty darn tootin’ too.

Also brutalize our eardrums is Maelstrom’s newest record It Was Predestined and Ancient VVisdom’s (yep, that’s two V’s) Deathlike, who are actually playing at Slim’s in San Francisco on February 9th. If you like good music, which I’m sure you do since you’re reading this, why not check them out? I promise your ears will only bleed a little bit.

KZSC Jazz Charts

This week has been a little off in regards to the mail, so I’ve decided to do the charting early to get into a new flow of things. Additionally this week, I’m welcoming the Jazz Director intern Jared Frazier (Jamfrazi) into the circle. He will be gradually taking over the department by early April. I’m looking forward to another week of music.  Here’s this week’s charts.
