Cannibal Corpse - Evisceration Plague
Flatline - Pave the Way
Zombi - Spirit Animal



Poison the Well - Versions (Klatzke)
Too Pure to Die - Confess (xalexislegendx)


Recommendation of the Week

Although they had to cut it short, The Abominable Iron Sloth recently trekked across the country from their west coast homes to see the inauguration of Barack Obama while on tour. I caught them one night, and despite the members both recovering from recent illnesses, they put on a powerful two-man performance. The play heavy doom/sludge; if a doomed down version of Will Haven sounds appealing to you, check out The Sloth here.

I'm liking the new Cannibal Corpse but that Flatline album is so generic that it gets boring after 1-2 songs.

Killswitch needs to do their own headlining run.

And with the exception of the Mayhem tour *edit* and the number 12 show,I'll probably be go to at least one date of all the tours posted. Mayhem's still up in the air,don't quite feel like driving to Camden.
