There’s always something different to listen out for as you’ll hear below.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJvYjwPBuDI”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Vision-Of-Disorder-–-Razed-To-The-Ground.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>9.</div><br /> <h3>Vision Of Disorder – Razed To The Ground</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]As this album has been out for less than 2 weeks it’s not really had time to sink all the way in yet but when you look forward to getting home to listen to an album then you know the artist has done something right. I’ve always loved Tim Williams vocal style being it with VOD or Blood Simple, there’s just something pure manic about it even when he’s singing cleaner and it makes the music exciting for me and this newest release just has some classic hardcore/metalcore riffage to go along with the brutality.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om6pjEsfQCE”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/36-Crazyfists-–-Time-And-Trauma.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>8.</div><br /> <h3>36 Crazyfists – Time And Trauma</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I’ve loved 36CF since I first heard “At The End Of August” in 2004. Just big riffs and his wierd ass clean singing voice just got me hooked and they’ve just got better and better with each album. They’ve left behind the mainstream metal sound from A Snow Capped Romance and just got heavier with each album. that saying this album feels abit more stripped back letting Brock be more inventive with his vocals and it works really well. Absolute belter of an album.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPNcrhXVXjA”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Devil-You-Know-–-They-Bleed-Red.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>7.</div><br /> <h3>Devil You Know – They Bleed Red</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]This 2nd outing from DYK is definetly the sound of a band finding their own sound now and it’s an absolute belter. Howards vocals are some of the best that we’ve heard from him. The balance of heavy and melodic is spot on. There’s some epic shred in there too but it’s never over done. Plus how can you go wrong with a quality version of “Eye Of The Tiger”. A metalcore classic.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vG8DzO1gJ4g”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Wearing-Scars-–-A-Thousand-Words.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>6.</div><br /> <h3>Wearing Scars – A Thousand Words</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge Andy James fan and I was totally gutted when his last band Sacred Mother Tongue broke up. Much to my delight he pretty much brought the whole band back with a new singer, Chris Clancy ex-Mutiny Within. Their debut album is just a ballsy, big sounding Hard Rock album with some nice metal riffs and the signature Andy James brilliance over the top of it. Clancy has such a great grasp on melodies and knows exactly how to work the song dynamics. If you like big metal/rock anthems then this is the album for you.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7DPxc-7cBI”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Sylosis-–-Dormant-Heart.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>5.</div><br /> <h3>Sylosis – Dormant Heart</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Another superb slice of modern metal from Sylosis. This is a darker album than the previous ones and has a slower tempo but that doesn’t take away from the crushing brutality of it. Josh Middleton delivering both vocals and ridiculous lead along with new drummer Ali Richardson’s solid grooves just makes this a superb album from start to finish.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5A0H64hm4U”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Final-Silence-–-Arcadia.png”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>4.</div><br /> <h3>Final Silence – Arcadia</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]These guys are a local Glasgow band that I’ve watched grow up and evlove over the last 5-6 years and they have just dropped and blinder of an album. I luckily got it a bit earlier than everyone else and listen to it contantly. Just great metal riffs and breakdowns (and lots of bass drops) mixed with some really atmospheric breaks giving the whole album a very well balanced tone. Everyone should check these guys out, you won’t be disappointed.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liVcN-aMVj0″] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Tremonti-–-Cauterize.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>3.</div><br /> <h3>Tremonti – Cauterize</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Mark Tremonti can pretty much do no wrong for me and I think this album proves that. I love his playing and writing style and now he’s done stuff with a more metal edge to it I’m loving it. He’s truely finding his voice now and you can hear that on this 2nd Tremonti album as he’s really pushing himself. I like the fact that Cauterize is pushing slightly further away from the Alter Bridge sound and you’re really starting to hear Mark’s thrash influences. I can’t find a bad song on this![/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmoMjMl_Jxw”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Sevendust-–-Kill-The-Flaw.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>2.</div><br /> <h3>Sevendust – Kill The Flaw</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I love Sevendust. They just have the right groove for me and I think that Kill The Flaw could be one of the best albums they’ve done in years. It’s gone back to the heavier roots and they’re still making great use of the fact that 4 members can all sing and have different tones that work together. This just sounds like a band who are working extremely well together and producing some of their best material yet. They just need to get to the UK more!![/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04eYGRtHcQQ”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Lamb-of-God-VII-Sturm-Und-Drang.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>1.</div><br /> <h3> Lamb Of God – Sturm Und Drang</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Yeah I know it might be an obvious choice but I genuinely love this album. LOG have influenced me in so many ways and to see a band start playing outside their comfort zone and experimenting, and making it work just gives me a musical boner. Listen to Randy’s eerie clean vocals just gives the heavier parts so much more intesity. The riffs as always are brilliant and Chris Adlers drums just never falter. It’s quality metal from start to finish from a band whose been through more turmoil than most. It’s freakin killer!!![/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCmBWOF1A0g”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
