    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.

    Continuing on with her tradition of utilizing top talent and great producers to produce a very NOW direction to her offerings of Bhakti yoga. This Kirtan themed voyage of chant, chill and grace will carry the listener to alcoves of serenity and blissful platitudes.

    Prog rock from Atlanta with a serious funk kick and some interesting quirks. The interplay of vocal harmonies amidst the disparate instrumental aptitudes serves to amplify the slurry of intriguing and beguiling musical intensities.

    Lion's Share
    Emotional Coma
    Label: Locomotive Spain Records

    A masterful selection of whirled classic metal riffs with a thrashing power metal type undertow as directed by band mastermind Lars Chriss. Thanks to the distinctive and awesome Dio era vocals of Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS and WUTHERING HEIGHTS) this album packs a crunchy, satisfying punch!

    Rupa and the April Fishes
    ExtraOrdinary Rendition
    Label: Cumbancha Records

    Etherial and whimsical whisperings spoken thru the flickering flame of chanteuse Rupa Marya. Tantalized with a multicultural temptation of sultry awareness amidst the occasional Euro spin, raga, or mariachi interlude. Superb.

    Those Poor Bastards - The Plague

    Those Poor Bastards
    The Plague
    Label: Tribulation Recording Company

    Unsettling gothic gospel altercations spun and thickened with a dark angst and a rustic atmosphere. Coarse vocals are set amidst a haunting cacophony of vintage instruments and cantankerous rhythms. Hank III approved!

    A Tortured Soul - Kiss of the Thorn

    A Tortured Soul - Kiss of the Thorn

    A Tortured Soul
    Kiss of the Thorn
    Label: Eyes Like Snow/Northern Silence Records

    Operatic and progressive old-school gothic metal (ala Priest, King Diamond, Shadow’s Fall) from Milwaukee but signed to a German Label. Shadowy doom protruding from a festering pool of abstract progressions.

    Fear Nuttin Band - Yardcore

    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!
