Recommendation of the Week

This week's round-up is a bit late because I attended New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester this weekend. The festival was featured Lamb of God, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Between the Buried and Me, and about 80 other bands. Although the lineup wasn't as strong as it has been in years past, it was a great time with something for any fan of heavy music. Bands that I caught who deserve more recognition include Coliseum, Unholy, Century, Trapped Under Ice, The Destro, The Crimson Armada, and Austrian Death Machine. Also be sure to check out that Fight Pretty download. It's a free album from a great band, so there's no way you can lose.

Zao's new song is cool aside from the random laugh thing that Dan does in the middle.

new war from a harlot's mouth isn't as good as their previous stuff, unfortunately. it's still solid, but not the same.

Narrows is the next best thing to a Botch reunion, which will probably never happen. I love it. Dave Verellen is an incredibly talented vocalist.
