Since their debut album Red in 2007, Baroness has risen as one of the top sludge metal bands. Constantly building upon their past efforts, Gold & Grey, their 2019 effort, was their most confident and well-rounded material. After four years of waiting, they have put out one of their most compelling albums.
Avatar, over the years, has proven to be a band that doesn’t just sit on its laurels. Dance Devil Dance is a testament to this. Over the last decade and a half, the band has accrued quite an interesting and dedicated fanbase, and with each album, they’ve pushed for a different sound or further experimentation. This time around, they move forward by looking a bit to the past.

Musically, the band has ebbed and flowed not particularly with the times, but with different sounds and experimenting while putting their own twist on their influences. However, In the Court of the Dragon is probably their most cohesive and Trivium sounding album, yet
Over the years, Sevendust have proven, time and time again, to be one of the most consistent rock/metal outfits out there. The Atlanta-based quintet have not only defined their own sound, but they have continually evolved on each album, without retreading things, wholesale.

Throughout the years, few bands have been consistent in putting out stellar albums while aggressively expanding their sound. Whether it’s the more metalcore sounding Vengeance Falls, or the more heavy metal sounding Silence in the Snow, the growth of their skills and playing has proven immensely.
Since the demise of Creed, the instrumentalists joined forces with Myles Kennedy and formed Alter Bridge out of its ashes. Initially, many fans (including myself!) felt that it was just Creed part deux, and mostly had written them off. That is, until they dropped an absolute bombshell of an album, Blackbird. That album was just the start of what has proven to be a very prolific career.
Over the last decade, Wes Scantlin had been embroiled in arrests, drugs, and various difficulties in his personal and professional life. Within his personal struggles, there was always music that he managed to come back to. This album was a long time coming.
Thirteen. Thirteen years it took the band to produce this album. To call it epic would be a gross understatement at this point.
Nearly fifteen years into his music career, Frank Carter has dropped a new album with his punk rock outfit Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. Their take on modern punk rock is memorable, and unique to the point that others are trying to sound like them!
Post-metal seems to have come a long way over the last several years. The genre itself is a hard one to get into, unless you’re already a fan. The experimental approach to metal is one that’s hard to win with casual listeners.
ilvertung, a hard rock quartet that hails from Maryland, they’ve been driving hard the last decade or so. Between receiving a Jagermeister sponsorship and performing for the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and Tour, they keep pounded out their signature hard and athemic rock.
