We are already in to September and being a Holiday Weekend here in the States, it seems to be a lighter week than what we have seen the past and what is coming in the future. There is one Massive release for a lot of my friends and I will give it a listen, but otherwise there is nothing I am looking forward to this week. There are a few big releases outside of the Massive one and maybe they will be what you want to hear. My choice is highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear and what I may have missed as that does happen. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I know I will as it is a long weekend for me.
Iron Maiden – Senjutsu – (Iron Maiden / Sanctuary Records / BMG): Iron Maiden is back with another release and there are a lot of readers excited by this one. I have never gotten in to them, but I will give it a listen so I am not completely left out of the conversation when it begins. This is the band’s 17th Studio album which is why I haven’t tried to get in to them as that is a lot of albums to buy plus the million of live albums they have it is quite daunting. But if you like Metal, this should be up your alley.
And that is it for me. Hopefully one of these albums will strike your fancy and you’ll give them a spin…
Welcome to March and the new releases are heating up. We have a ton this week so there has to be something you like in there, I am sure. If not, I guarantee nothing!! There is rock, metal, pop, country, rap, classic rock…what else could you need? Seriously, what else?? Let me know what I missed and what floats your boat. For me, the two are highlighted in Blue. Have a great weekend!!
Harem Scarem – Change the World – (Frontiers Records): Yes, Harem Scarem are still going strong with a new release. This is their 16th studio album…wow!! If you know the band, you know what you are getting. Solid, melodic rock and only the way they know how. That is all you want from these guys. Give it a try.
Allen / Olzon – Worlds Apart – (Frontiers Records): You get Symphony X’s and Adrenaline Mob’s Russel Allen and Nightwish’s Anette Olzon teaming up for an album. Does it get much better than that? Probably, but for now, I will give it a try as it is two great voices of metal together. Deserves a listen.
Welcome to the last Friday of May!! Let the Summer heat and fun begin!! School is almost out for the kids, but busy times ahead for me. Let’s end the month with some new releases. I have a few I am interested in hearing and they are highlighted in Blue. There is a handful of releases this week so let me know what you are interested in or if I missed something that needs a shout out! I hope there is something for you. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!
Kenny Wayne Shepherd – The Traveler – (Concord Music Group): First up for me is KWS and that awesome blues guitar. Kenny has been around awhile now and his last release was stellar so expect more of the same with this. It is funny how his Blues actually makes me feel good. Is that the way it is supposed to work?
Duff McKagan – Tenderness – (Universal Music): The Guns ‘n Roses bass player is back with a new solo album which is the first one in 20 years (not counting the 8 years since his band Loaded’s last album). I don’t have high expectations or any for that matter, but I am curious as to what he has to offer and he has earned the respect for a listen. I want some new GNR music though!!!
