Recommendation of the Week

I just wanted to highlight some noteworthy news with my thoughts: Props on Soul Control getting a B9 deal; they're a great band. I can't wait for the new Heaven and Hell. That Cattle Decap video, shot in a real butcher's shop, looks cool, and the album is great. The Terror video is pretty cool too; live footage from those guys is always great. That Converge instrumental sounds great, so does the Trash Talk 7".

As I Lay Dying's upcoming DVD, This is Who We Are, makes me :overhead:

batmannj 03/21/09 10:31 AM

Definitely going to see Maylene in Toledo, I am just wondering about the new record.

kevinrocks409 03/21/09 10:40 AM

That Converge video is soooo good.

Haha, I fail. I'll get it fixed.

Whereisreggie 03/21/09 10:58 AM

I'm pissed about My Hero Is Me breaking up but I guess when you don't get paid for playing shows, it really can kill the momentum of being a band.

Also..For Today needs to come to Florida.

TotalCollapse 03/21/09 11:00 AM

I wish the All That Remains tour was coming to MD.

porttheman 03/21/09 11:24 AM

The new Into the Moat is way good!

eHaMpToN 03/21/09 11:35 AM

TMS2787 03/21/09 12:00 PM

Looking forward to hearing the new Killswitch Engage album and I might hit up The Chariot show in Cleveland.
