It is Friday again and not a moment too soon. Today’s new releases are just what this metal head has been waiting for and I have a feeling these will be on heavy rotation over the next week.
Sixx A.M. – Prayers for the Damned (Eleven Seven Music)
When Nikki Sixx put together Sixx A.M. for the Heroin Diaries, I thought it was going to be a one-off project. Gladly that was not the case. This album is their fourth one and since all three previous albums have been exceptional, I am hoping that streak continues.
Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser (UMe)
SI have been following Rob Zombie since White Zombie. I am also a huge fan of his guitarist, John 5. The two together always bring an eerie, psychedelic experience that is loud and exciting. This should be no different.
Tremonti – Dust (Fret12 Records)
Mark Tremonti’s side project from Alter Bridge (and Creed) is set to release their third album. They are heavier than Alter Bridge and Mark takes on the lead vocals. It is nice to see him step out and take the lead. As much as I do enjoy Alter Bridge, this is enough to tide me over until their next album.
I also just learned Wolfgang Van Halen is the bass player.
