Alice in Chains, ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ – Album Review

With Alice in Chains' experiencing a successful return with 'Black Gives Way to Blue,' the band cleared one very significant hurdle, and with their new album, 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,' the veteran rockers prove they can sustain their excellence. While all the things you would expect from Alice in Chains -- sludgy guitars, haunting melodies, dark lyrics -- are on the disc, the band shows they can still put a fresh spin on their sound.

Rob Zombie, ‘Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor’ – Album Review

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.

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.
