Best Rock & Metal Releases of September 2022

I usually try to get my monthly “Best Of” posts out within a week of the month ending, but for right now I’ll settle for just within a month. (Literally.) September was an odd month, in my opinion. It had a lot of albums that I was not expecting whatsoever. Most of my top weeklyContinue reading “Best Rock & Metal Releases of September 2022”

Finally, I’m back! I know, I know, it’s been over a month since my last post but I have been very busy with travel and work and family.

Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases September 2, 2022

This post is a bit of a first for me. This is the first time a symphonic metal album has made it into my top 5 of the week. Also, the majority of my favorite releases this week are not from more popular bands, but are actually from smaller lesser-known artists. In fact, with theContinue reading “Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases September 2, 2022”

Best Rock & Metal Releases of August 2022

Perhaps I’m just getting pickier, but August had much fewer releases that I cared about than previous months this year. Nonetheless, there were still many quality albums and EPs that I did enjoy last month. August especially blew me away with the high caliber of death metal that came out.  I originally thought that JanuaryContinue reading Best Rock & Metal Releases of August 2022

Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 19, 2022

Last week might be my smallest release week of 2022 so far with only 13 albums and EPs that stood out to me. However, it’s still got some powerhouse releases, most of which I was not expecting at all. The EPs really carried the week, making up eight of the 13 records. Here are myContinue reading “Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 19, 2022”

Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 12, 2022

Last week was a great week for the heavy/alt music scene. I’m constantly in awe with how much great music continues to constantly come out. There were only a couple releases I was anticipating, primarily Norma Jean followed by Arch Enemy, and they did not disappoint! However, what really amazed me about last week wasContinue reading “Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 12, 2022”

Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 5, 2022

My apologies for posting this so late. I went to a concert on Friday and my ears and body needed a break afterwards. (In case you’re curious, I went to see August Burns Red, my all-time favorite band, in Sacramento. Void of Vision, Hollow Front, and We Came As Romans supported them and the showContinue reading “Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases August 5, 2022”

Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases July 22, 2022

This week was packed with tons of epic rock records. You might notice that I use the term “modern” to describe many of the releases. I use “modern” because I’m not sure how else to describe the type of hard rock that comes out nowadays. To explain, much of modern hard rock pulls from aContinue reading “Top 5 Rock & Metal Releases July 22, 2022”
