Danzig - Deth Red Sabaoth
I'm hoping on this album Danzig return to their former selves from their first few albums. They have teetered off on their newer albums but I know they can make good music, its just will they be able to do it? I don't know.
Kvelertak - S/T
From what I've heard from these guys, I am cautiously optimistic about it. The vocals are black metal-ish with a modern-era rock background to it, I don't know it's kind of hard to explain. I'm hoping that his vocals aren't just one note throughout like in the one song I've heard from them. This really is a boom or bust album for me and we will see when it comes out which it is. Here is a link to the song. http://www.invisibleoranges.com/2010/05/kvelertak-mjod-video/
This Comp Kills Fascists, Vol. 2
The second installment from Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) and I'm super stoked for this because the first comp was freakin' awesome and this one sure does look promising too. Crom, Lack of Interest and Despise You are just a few bands on the list for this and it's worth buying just for them and hell, those might not even be the best ones on there because there were a couple bands from the first one that I heard of that I liked better than Brutal Truth.
Yakuza - Of Seismic Consequence
One of the more highly anticipated albums for me this year is this. This is truly their best album to date and it has a great flow to it listening to it from start to finish. There's not to many metal bands out there today that can make a saxophone work, and they do it flawlessly. To sum it up shortly, THIS IS A MUST BUY! Do it and do it now.
Killing Joke - In Excelsis (EP)
This is a warm up to their upcoming full-length coming later this year and includes songs from their recording sessions. So if you like Killing joke, which most of you do, then what better way to stretch before the workout in the anticipation of their new album.
