Local CD Reviews

Im trying to get my hands on a bunch of local band's CDs...In the near future I will be reviewing them so watch out...

If any bands in the area have any CDs out please let me know about it...I would love to hear it.


Diverge - Parasite - What a brutal, in your face, split your wig, run off the road at 150 mph metal disc...pick this one up and you wont be disappointed. 4.1 out of 5.0

Lisiya Gori - 3 Song EP - These guys are awesome at what they do. They have the right mix of groove and death metal. 4.3 out of 5.0 - Casey

A Lower Deep - Trinity - Progressive Power Metal with some Death thrown in...the lead singers voice takes some getting used to...I am not a big fan of the high pitched vocals...the CD is a cross between Judas Priest and Opeth. 3.5 out of 5.0

Music Hates You - Send More Paramedics (Pre-Master) - Has a unique blend of rock and metal. However towards the end you get the sense of songs running together. 3.7 out of 5.0 - Casey

Vintage Stone - Thought of a Dreamer - These guys play a straight up style of alternative / hard rock. The songs are structured well and have great melodic parts...the similarities to Audioslave or Soundgarden come to mind. The lead singer has a great voice...one that could carry them a long ways. Go to CDBaby.com to get this one. 4.3 out of 5.0

DevilDriver will begin their first ever headlining tour in the spring with Bury Your Dead, Darkest Hour, If Hope Dies and Remembering Never.

The band will tour in July and August as part of a "big U.S. festival", however it will not be Ozzfest or Sounds of the Underground.
