Goatsnake - Black Age Blues

In the long history of bands who have risen back up after a long silence with a new album, we've come to have a small group of successful comebacks, and a whole mountain of shitty ones. Thankfully, this year, Goatsnake are sitting quite nicely in the former territory with Black Age Blues.

Halestorm - Into The Wild Life

Hard rock is a genre that's a bit on the stale side, to put it mildly, for keeping up with it. I get bored faster than I actually like to admit. I mean, I'm game for some rocking out but there's too little traction for even a casual listen most of the time. However, there's this.

Beautality - Einfallen: A Tale Of Torment & Triumph

It took me a long-ass time to review this album, mostly because it's a long-ass album. To put things in perspective, Einfallen: A Tale Ov Torment & Triumph is more than twice as long as everything Minor Threat ever recorded. "That's quite a daunting task, Steel," I hear you say. "How ever did you manage to listen to it enough to write about it?" Simple, friend. I have no life.
