My 2009 in Rock and Metal

Kingcrimsonprog "Kingcrimsonprog"
 
Hordes Of Chaos [CD + DVD]
Hordes Of Chaos [CD + DVD]
"Maybe the best album Kreator have ever made, its so well written, hugely heavy and very interesting. Amazing."
ENDGAME

"Megadeth firing on all cylanders here, furthering the style thats slowly been developed over their last few albums. Great songs, great solos, great sound."
World Painted Blood (Jewel Case)
World Painted Blood (Jewel Case)
"Very thin old school production and some new ideas her and there help make this album stand out. A very good Slayer album, with a strange kind of space and diversity."
Infection (Bonus Dvd)
Infection (Bonus Dvd)
"Chimaira's darkest, slowest and most groove orientated album, a very defining album combining all the bands styles together on one album. And its heavy as hell too"
Killswitch Engage (KsE)
Killswitch Engage (KsE)
"Hands down the best thing Killswitch have ever written, although it takes a good few listens until you realise this. At first you think its too comercial but really its just fantastic songwriting"
War Is The Answer
War Is The Answer
"Maybe a little comercial, especially on their singles but a very good modern metal album that can be very heavy in places. 'Burn it Down,' is huge."
Crack the Skye [Special Edition]
Crack the Skye [Special Edition]
"The best thing Mastodon have ever done, onwe of the best albums I've ever heard, their most progressive and virtuosic work containing amazing songs like the epic 'The Csar,' its unmissable!"
Wavering Radiant
Wavering Radiant
"Its no Oceanic but it is very focused, very heavy and intersting as always."
Octahedron
Octahedron
"If you love The Mars Volta, but wish sometimes they'd tone it down a bit, this album is for you. The most basic, coherant and musical album they've ever done but still 100% Mars Volta. Essential."
Time Waits For No Slave
Time Waits For No Slave
"Absolutly brutal as always, especially since 'Enemy Of The Music Business,' Napalm Death have found a style that they're happy with and this album is a ferocious example of it."
Evisceration Plague
Evisceration Plague
"You know what to expect with Cannibal Corpse albums, if you liked 'Kill,' then you'll love this, if 'Kill,' was too grove filled and serious then this won't be you favourite album."
The Devil You Know
The Devil You Know
"Heaven and Hell release an album of all new material. Well, you already know what this will sound like the only question is 'Is This a Good Version Of That ?' and the answer is a huge 'YES!'"
Sonic Boom
Sonic Boom
"Another proto-metal band back with a new album, and 'Sonic Boom,' doesn't disapoint. A Punchy and energetic record with great solos a few tasty riffs and lots of trademark Kiss attitude."
STRANGE COUSINS FROM
STRANGE COUSINS FROM
"What an album, songs like 'Struck Down,' proove why Clutch are so good, mixing absolute heaviness with real accesibilty, groove and even funk. A huge Classic rock sound with a metal production."
Wrath
Wrath
"A sound of their own, very heavy, very angry and technical as hell."
High End Of Low
High End Of Low
"People are saying 'return to form,' but I cant hear it. Its very similar to the last few albums in tone and lyrical style. Its no 'Holywood,' thats for sure but give it a listen and judge for yourself"
Feathergun
Feathergun
"Rishloo are amazingly good and furiously underrated. All Tool fans seriously need to give them try."
Backspacer (Limited Edition Gatefold Sleeve)
Backspacer (Limited Edition Gatefold Sleeve)
"The most simple and fun album pearl Jam have made in a while. A great listen even if it doesn't break any boundaries artistically."
Pray For Villains
Pray For Villains
"I rember when Devil Driver started out and everyone thought they were a joke, fast forward and now they are a hugely important band. And they do improve with each album too."
Neverender: Children of the Fence Edition
Neverender: Children of the Fence Edition
"If you like Coheed then this will blow your mind, its not often you get a DVD of a concert where the band plays their entire backcatalougue, and the DVD/Sound quality is top notch."
Hatebreed LTD SPECIAL EDITION CD/DVD DIGIPACK
Hatebreed LTD SPECIAL EDITION CD/DVD DIGIPACK
"If you know Hatebreed you know what you're in for; Brutal riffs, crushing drums and Jastas trademark vocals. Not the most diverse stuff but very true and really good."
21st Century Breakdown
21st Century Breakdown
"Love them or hate them, everyone who listens to this kind of music has to deal with Green Day. This album is very much the musical half way point between 'Warning,' and 'American Idiot,'"
Humbug
Humbug
"Arctic Monkeys go all weird after hanging around Josh Homme. You can really feel the Homme influence in the diversty and attitude of the music even if every song doesn't exactly sound like QOTSA"
Anno Domini High Definition
Anno Domini High Definition
"Hugely anticipated fourth Riverside album. Doesn't disapoint. Heavier, funkier and more imediate!"
Retribution
Retribution
"The newest Shadows fall album, full of solos, thrash riffs and melodic choruses. If you like this sub genre this is a terrific album."
