I listen to you guys! I was told by several people that checking out ten bands a week was a bit much, so this week I’ve scaled back to five, let me know what you think.
I had the great fortune of seeing and meeting Havok at a recent show. Hearkening back to the days of early thrash Havok gives me hope for new bands and the future of Rock N’ Roll! Brutal in your face music in the style of Metallica, Exodus, Death Angel, and early Megadeth.
Australia keeps on giving to the world of Rock N’ Roll. Babyjane is an awesome inclusion to that category. Citing influences such as: Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Skid Row, Sex Pistols, Vains Of Jenna, Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, The Cult, Faith No More, Megadeth, Pantera, how could they not be kick ass?
Another band I had to the great fortune to meet and interview. Brooding, dark, loud, all of the things you want in your Rock N’ Roll. Skeletonwitch delivers every time.
When you see this band it almost seems impossible that what you are witnessing is actually taking place. The sound that comes from these unassuming individuals testifies to the sheer power of Rock!
5. SHATTERED SUN
Shattered Sun is a metalcore band from the small town of Alice Texas, Formed in 2005, Shattered Sun went through their growing pains, going through numerous lineup changes to finally finding the right people. Their style is heavy/thrash metal with incredible guitar riffs, vocal distortions and that magnetic raw appeal that allows them to create that maximum effect with every song, every time.
