Sound Of The Republic (2006)
The Rise, The Fall, and Everything In Between (2006)
If you have never heard death metal or thrash, then this (or any other Cannibal Corpse release) will be the most intense thing to grace your CD player... ever. The vocals are the widely accepted, semi-brutal style that infrequently breaks into a crazy scream. The scream itself sounds like some crazy fucker you want to run from.
Postpartum Modesty, A Portrait of Skin, Is the new EP By The Turlock, California band Evaline. The EP here clocks in at 22:34, six songs, I think it could best be described as Working Trippy Rock, with an ample dose of synthesizer-pop sensibilities, but without waning on the guitar rock side of things. It may sound a little random; but it's an excellent combo, indeed. This is very fun to listen to any day of the week and even if I’m in a pissed off mood it calms me down. This is a very new/fresh unsigned band but they have something going on with Mavrick Records now.
One and Done [EP] [Live] (2006)
The Fear Is What Keeps Us Here (2006)
One trend that has become far too common in new rock and alternative music over the last several years is the lack of diversity in sound between different bands. We saw it with all the grunge bands that became popular in the early to mid ‘90s and then the nu-metal/rap rock movement of the early twenty-first century.
This Was Always Meant to Fall Apart (2006)
Modern Primitive Punk (2006)
Trustkill Records did it again with Roses Are Red... a band with a great deal of appeal. Some might think of Trustkill as a hard hitting label with hardcore music. Rose Are Red prove that you can still rock, and not be “crazy.” This is a CD that everyone can enjoy, ‘cause ultimately that’s what you want to do, enjoy the music.
