Rotten Sound stream new album 'Suffer to Abuse'
This is one of my favorite grind bands, and this album absolutely shreds. Whenever anyone asks what they sound like, my simple response is "throw a few babies in a blender and record it".

Nathan Gray
Of Boysetsfire fame, Nathan has branched out to do a highly successful solo career and I have followed him for quite some time. He recently released a new album called "Feral Hymns", loaded with raw, emotional tracks and heartfelt lyrics. And personally, he's a pretty solid dude, very intelligent.

Elder - Reflections of a Floating World
I came across this album a few weeks ago and have been rocking it regularly. It's hard to describe in any way other than epic, the songs are ten+ minutes each. Groove laden doom/rock style with prog influence in the vein of the Sword.

BAND OF THE DAY - 09/04/2017
Amenra
This band is so fucking heavy, that's about all I can say. Experimental, sludgy, at times absolutely crushing. They have been around since 1999, and have put out a very interesting catalogue to date.

Wintersun: Finally a new album!
I was under the impression that they would be working on Time II but I kinda lost track of their progress so this album was a nice surprise. It took a few listens but it is growing on me fast! I see that he did crowdfunding to help create this and it is obviously a work of true love.

Gileah Taylor
I heard this singer/songwriter originally on the 13 Reasons Why and she grabbed my attention with ethereal music and strong and beautiful vocals, so I checked out the album and it has been in my playlist for a few weeks, so I figured I'd share it! For fans of Shoegaze/Dreampop (Belly, Azure Ray, Minipop) or anything along those lines.
BAND OF THE DAY - 06/28/2017
Integrity (OH)
Everyone that knows anything about hardcore has heard of long time legends Integrity. I am listening to this new album "Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume" and this absolutely RIPS.

BAND OF THE DAY - 06/04/2017
Mind Power (PA)
Featuring Bob Meadows from A Life Once Lost and members of Dead End Path, Ligeia and Bring The Heat... this is pretty awesome, reminds me of the Hops Conspiracy a little and still has the DJent-y feel of later ALOL stuff. Grimy, grungy metal/hardcore.
