    Anew Revolution
    Rise
    Label: Koch Entertainment

    Watered-down, radio-ready bubblegum metal. Oh, it’s so filled with emotions, intensity, blah, blah, blaze. For fans of such mass consumable and radio friendly bands as Staind, Dope, etc.

    Dead Child
    Attack
    Label: Touch and Go/Quarterstick Records

    grooves of doom take flight from their terse, rudimentary beginnings and find fertile ground as the tonalities grow darker and more aggressive. Clean bad boy vocals spice the palette.

    Mr. Blues Jr.
    Label: Glenn P.M. Patrik

    Saucy and charismatic encampments of flavorful blues. The organ and harmonica with the screaming and wailing guitar make poignant the subtle rhythmic rebuttals of this veteran bluesman.

    Fear Nuttin Band
    Yardcore
    Label: Bodog Music

    Dual dancehall style vocals utilizing a wide variety of musical genre platforms to riff off of. Most of them are heavier or punkier; some are more reggae, but all have the hippin,’ hoppin’ vocals. Quite catchy stuff!

    Endeverafter - Kiss or Kill

    Endeverafter
    Kiss or Kill
    Label: Razor & Tie

    I had no idea that this kind of music was still being produced! Big hair with even bigger egos. Cocky, cheesy, dick in mouth metal/hard rock. I say “Whatever-after” is a better name.
