Behemoth
Cannibal Corpse

Tribulation
Staff pick
Vise Versa - Living A Lie
Alternametal

The fact that Franky Costanza is the drummer should be enough to convince you to check this out. If that's not good enough then Jon Howard is also the vocalist. If neither of these 2 facts mean anything to you then you just must not know who those guys are.

Mekong Delta - Lurking Fear (2007)

I discovered Mekong Delta in 1990 with "Dances of Death (and other Walking Shadows)". Back in time, it was my personal CD dealer (the older brother of my best mate) who gave this CD to me, and when you know that my favorite bands were Hard Rock ones (AC/DC…) but also the American Thrash Masters (Slayer, Megadeth…) you can imagine that I was a bit disturbed by this release… It was so unconventional, so "modern" and so technical that it was a bit hard to understand what it was really...

Down

After the release of the "Nola" album, Down called it quits in 1996 because of all members continuing to work on their own projects. They did, however, reform in 1999 and then released their second album "Down II", before disappearing once again. After Hurricane Katrina disaster, Down reform again for "Down III: Over the Under". The title is a reference to the band members getting over various personal low-points, including Katrina and the murder of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
