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.

Loud Rock Charts: 3/19

One of the better weeks in terms of Loud Rock Adds, this time we see Clutch drop what could be their greatest album to date, Finnish monster costumers Lordi release a “beastly” (teehee) record, and the highly anticipated Kvelertak album.

Also, I still have no idea how to pronounce that band name.  Kelvin Tack? Kevlar attack?

Loud Rock Charts: 3/12

Unfortunately, last week there as a mix up with KZSC’s CMJ subscription, hence the lack of charts and adds. With this week, however, KZSC is back in business, and boy what a week. This time around sees hard rock band Krokus release their 17th studio album. Yeah, you read that right. 17. As in the number after 16.

Also dropping is stoner metal outfit Orange Goblin’s first ever live release, which promises to appease fans for a short time until they come to your local town on their tour with Clutch.

Within The Ruins

Loud Rock Charts: 2/26

Thursday night, I witnessed one of the greatest acts on metal this world has seen. No, it wasn’t any big name bands like  Opeth or Gojira. It was just a small three piece band, who use nothing more than 2 lights, a little bit of fog, and three instruments to create one of the most unbelievable live performances on this earth. That band’s name is Russian Circles. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you get a chance to see them on their tour with Between the Buried and Me and Coheed and Cambria, please for the love of god get there early to witness their greatness.

Loud Rock Charts: 12/19

I sincerely hope everyone has had a great three day weekend! In celebration of our forefathers, why not take a listen to some awesome new metal? In particular, Suffocation’s Pinnacle of Bedlam has been making waves in the metal community, for great reason. Also adding today, Psychothermia’s newest album is just as awesome and “kooky” as its name implies. It’s also self-released, so why not help out an up-and-coming independent band?
