A Forgettable Year with Some Memorable

Releases (In no particular order)

1) Coathangers - Parasite. Great to have this band back, if only for a quick EP. Classic, unfiltered, garage fury.

2) Walk the Plank - Cemetery Vacation. Angry D.C. hardcore. Cannot imagine why D.C. would be a place for volatile music right now….

3) Round Eye - Monstervision. From the Joe Bob Briggs drops to the swirling monstrosities of noise, this was perfect.

4) Anthrophobia - Grind. The world is always a little better when Frank Phobia releases new stuff.

5) Hot Water Music - Light It Up. “Show Your face” hooked me the first time I heard it and I still have to hear it at least once a day to help me get through.

6) Kristin Hersh - Wyatt at the Coyote. Beautiful, heartbreaking, and endearing, this is a celebration of Hersh’s many talents.

7) Heretic’s Fork - Greed. Swirling waves of skull-crushing cyber grind noise-core, and the future looks limitless for Travis Lee.

8) Warbly Jets - s/t. These four guys from L.A. may just be what rock n’ roll needs right now-a rock n’ roll band.

9) Ex-Optimists/Economy Island Split. Two great bands that I pray can quit their day jobs and just tour in 2018.

10) Cannibal Corpse - Red Before Black
10) Six Feet Under-Torment. (tie)
I cannot go a year without classic, American death metal on my list, and it is awesome to have these bands back with new music.
