Stone Sour, ‘House of Gold & Bones Part 2′ – Album Review

Stone Sour set the bar high with their 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1' disc in 2012, and they don't disappoint with the concept album's conclusion. What listeners get on 'Part 2' is a hard-hitting collection that digs deeper into the storylines that are laid out in the opening disc. And, as Corey Taylor has stated, the second portion plays more like a soundtrack than the first release.

Suicidal Tendencies, ‘13’ – Album Review

When it comes to crossover thrash, it doesn’t get much more influential than Suicidal Tendencies. Formed back in 1981, the band helped pioneer the genre along with groups like D.R.I. and S.O.D. They have split and reunited a few times, and after being back together for several years now have finally released a new album. '13' is their first studio effort since 2000's 'Free Your Soul...and Save My Mind.'

Buckcherry, ‘Confessions’ – Album Review

When envisioning new music from Buckcherry, you know there'll be some foot-stomping, high-energy songs, typically about partying, women and heartbreak -- all delivered by singer Josh Todd's perfectly rock-weathered voice. On their new 'Confessions' album, they definitely have some of those touchtones, but that being said, Buckcherry also deserve a great deal of credit for delivering a well thought out concept album.

Bullet for My Valentine, ‘Temper Temper’ – Album Review

Bullet for My Valentine are clicking on all cylinders on their new album, though the band readily admits the title 'Temper Temper' comes from some of the internal friction within the group.

Hatebreed, ‘The Divinity of Purpose’ – Album Review

Hatebreed are back in a big way in the form of 'The Divinity of Purpose,' the Connecticut mosh 'n' stomp hardcore band's first disc for new label Razor & Tie. It's anthemic, full of sing-along choruses and lyrical declarations, chunky riffing, battering ram drumming and more breakdowns than an insane asylum. It's a totally moshable affair, comprised of tight, efficient and make-their-point-and-move on songs.

Bad Religion, ‘True North’ – Album Review

Bad Religion are to punk rock what Iron Maiden are to heavy metal. Along with both groups brandishing unparalleled quality within their genres in over three-decade-long discographies, both Bad Religion and Iron Maiden are storytellers at heart who paint vivid visual pictures through their music. Fans are able to immerse themselves into the worlds birthed by Bad Religion with even greater intensity than their own personal realities, which is a testament to how many pairs of eyes Bad Religion are able to lend their fans for short bursts of multidimensional insight.
