Queens of the Stone Age
Facebook: Queens of the Stone Age

Welcome back Queens of the Stone Age and all of their talented friends! It's been six years since the band last released 'Era Vulgaris,' and it's apparent that mastermind frontman Josh Homme hasn't lost his touch for fuzzed out amps blasting guitar rock. But the band's '…Like Clockwork' album also shows another side with a handful of moody, introspective piano-driven tracks that just add to the musical palette.

Immolation, ‘Kingdom of Conspiracy’ – Album Review

Immolation

Immolation have been churning out their unique brand of New York death metal for 25 years now. Every album is an exercise in technical proficiency married with an absolutely hellacious atmosphere soaked in blast beats and Ross Dolan’s trademark guttural vocals. ‘Kingdom of Conspiracy’ is the quartet’s newest slab of brutality and marks the band’s finest album from this incarnation that solidified a decade ago.

zombie_featured_rat

Rob Zombie has been making music as a solo artist for nearly 15 years. In 1998, he bounced back from the break-up of White Zombie with 'Hellbilly Deluxe,' and he hasn't slowed down since. Arguably his best album since his debut masterpiece, Zombie's fifth studio album, 'Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,' is a non-stop thrill ride of freakin' fun rock 'n' roll.
