The Kickdrums – Just A Game

The Kickdrums Just A Game (2009)

These guys have pulled of what RJD2 could not. They have gone from awesome producers to awesome indie singers. Where as RJD2 dropped any sounds of his previous efforts, The Kickdrums have incorporated their previous sound and melded it perfectly with their singing. This change isn’t a surprise since they have always made beats that were more melancholy than menacing. The songs here would fit in perfectly on any hipster’s iPod or even on the radio. It’s all catchy and the singing fits the music perfectly. A wonderful album to listen to with the significant other on a lazy Sunday.

Church of Misery – House Of The Unholy

Church of Misery House of The Unholy (2009)

Awesome Japanese doom metal that’s about murders. Alright, a little more would be that these guys put to shame like 98% of all doom bands not named Electric Wizard. They deliver fuzzed out riffs that stay stuck in your head for days at a time, while the vocals are ballsy shouts that Lemmy Kilmister would be proud of. Also these guys are able to change tempos in the middle of songs and not have disrupt the groove, rather enhance it. If you dig heavy rock or metal you can’t go wrong with this album.
