On the road!

My sincerest apologies to those who read this site on a regular basis. We’re all pretty busy around these parts and the last few weeks have been hell for me especially. I’ve taken some odd jobs that have required me to travel the Western United States. While doing so I picked up some CDs, and here’s a little blurb on each of them..

Hatebreed’s latest – I don’t even know the name of it, however, I don’t seem to mind. Save your money, folks. I found this album to be an absolute bore. It felt like Jamey Jasta was done making music for artistic purposes and just decided to rake in a few bucks. I know lots of musicians are on that side of the spectrum these days, but the feeling was almost instant when I popped the cd in. Aside from that, there’s a cover of Metallica’s “Escape” as a bonus track which I have considered the worst cover of all time.

Megadeth’s Endgame – I understand that the days of the “classic” lineup are over and the band hasn’t released anything amazing since the 90’s, but, this album was surprisingly entertaining. Not once on my drive to Boise did I skip a song. There’s plenty of great riffs and solos on this album to keep you air guitaring in your car. Don’t pay attention to lyrics. They’re terrible.

Revocation’s Existence is Futile – Holy motherfucker. The hype from Invisible Oranges was enough for me to seek this one out. I traveled to several record stores looking for it, and finally found it in Salt Lake City. I listened to this one several several times through, back to back. It’s just that good. David Davidson’s guitar work is really some of the most refreshing I’ve heard in some time. I can’t do this one justice, buy the album.

Baroness Blue Record – After many listens I decided that this is easily one of my favorite albums this year. I forget about good music in an attempt to discover the most brutal, heavy shit that I can. All that “metal” shit aside, this is just a fucking phenomenal rock record. A perfect album to chill and burn a fat one to.
