Album Reviews

Pittsburgh punk rockers Anti Flag have released their 13th album ‘Lies They Tell Our Children, a “conceptual” album about the state of the world that we currently live in, with 7 out of the 11 tracks featuring guest artists. Out via Spinefarm Records.

Ghost’s fifth opus “Impera” is quite extravagant and incredibly catchy the songs are stately infectious redefined by the vibrant 80’s rock vibes that catch the mood instantly.

Atreyu delivers a mix of passion, rhythm and guitar riffs with motivational lyrics and drive while maintaining it easy to jam!

This album is a metalcore mix that is candy for the ears. It’s loud, it’s out there, but it’s also calm and soothing at the same time.

The only thing you can do after this is push the repeat button and listen to the new Seether album once again because it’s so great.

Airbourne, the hard rock misfits of a new generation are back with a “Boneshaker” of a record!

This album is yet again amazing. When you hear the music, you know it’s While She Sleeps.

What are you going to leave behind? A tin line between love and fear.

Helix is surprising. It’s catchy and poppy. But also sturdy and material for head banging. Definitely give it a listen if you’re in for something new.

Ever wondered how energetic punk rock band Anti-Flag sounds with acoustic guitars?
