If you get a chance. Skillet, while being a Christian band puts on a great live show and are a lot harder than on their albums.

Also check out August Burns Red.

Seen skillet in concert. Also have seen Red in concert. Which I believe also is Christian. Both are great acts live.

Actually listening to skillet as I work now.

Volbeat is ok. I like some of their stuff.

I'm in Christmas music mode right now. Go figure.

I like pantera, sevendust, shinedown(lead has a heck of a voice), drowning pool, and stone sour.

One band I don't know if I mentioned that I really enjoy is Bullet for my Valentine. Waking the demon is a great song.
Went to a Shinedown concert several years back, actually seen them several times. Son loves them and we did a meet and greet one time. But he concert a few years back was at the Mud Island ampitheatre. Power went out about 2 songs in to their set, they were headlining. They hooked up a generator, just enough to get a couple mics and speakers going. Him and the lead guitar finished the set acoustic and sounded amazing.

That's when you can pick out the musically gifted from the screamers. When they can hook up the acoustic and it sounds amazing. Brent smith of shinedown, is one of those gifted artists. He has southern musical roots. He knows how to sing.

Not much of a fan of Breaking Benjamin, but they have an acoustic version of So Cold that I could put on repeat for a while

Been trying to listen to more Christian music lately, and a band I really love is Phinehas. Their drummer is amazing (that's big for me, being a drummer), and great riffs. They have a nice balance of screams, growls, and clean vocals, depending on the album. For Today is another great band. They are similar to August Burns Red, just more precise and with less of a hardcore influence. Their lyrics are spectacular. Onward to Olympas has some great tracks too. Some tracks to check out,

Phinehas:
Crowns (favorite riff ever)
Blessing and a Curse
I am the Lion (all around great track)
The Rider
Salting the Mine
Fleshkiller
Dead Choir
White Livered
Forever West
Iliaster (killer breakdown)

For Today:
For Zion
Fearless (killer lyrics)
Crown of Thorns (super heavy)
Immortal
Foundation
With a Passion Burning

Onward to Olympas:
Overcoming
Presence at the Funeral
The War Within Us

It has been a great weekend. My little league team won 34-6 on Saturday and today I got a steal of a deal at Guitar Center in Fayetteville. Bought a Randy Rhoads V shape guitar for HALF PRICE!! Sorry I'm just excited.

When it comes to metal, there's Dethklok, then there's everyone else vying for a distant second place.

He's both the fastest and second-fastest guitar player in the world.

It's a joke, if you've ever seen Metalocalypse. Skwisgaar is the fastest guitarist in the world, and Toki is the second fastest. Brendan does the guitar parts for both.

Check out Batmetal if you get a chance. It's a parody of Deathklok. They have Murmaider and another one, but I forget what it is.

Longfellow, have you heard any of the new Megadeth Dystopia album? Was hoping you could tell me a little about it. I know Kiko, the new guitarist, does a pretty nice job from previous albums with other bands

I heard a couple songs, and it sounds good. Kiko was a good pickup, even though Chris Broderick was one of my favorites. Sounds similar to Endgame, but I don't think it's as heavy in some parts. Not a huge fan of the drum parts. They are really straightforward without a lot of frills. Pretty much what you expect to hear if you put Lamb of God's drummer in Megadeth. It didn't blow me away, but it's a quality album

Was able to check out the rest of the album LF. Some odd ball songs thrown in that don't seem to match, but overall it's a nice album. The best songs would have to be The Threat is Real, Dystopia, and Lying in State. If this lineup sticks, there could be some great content coming in the future.

If you find the time Longfellow, check out a band called The Unguided. They're a Swedish type band who draw from In Flames. They aren't a rip off and keep to their own style and lyrical themes. Pretty underrated band if you ask me. They currently have three full length albums. Released their latest one on Feb. 28th this year

Not a big Rage fan. Do love some Zombie though. I'm on an instrumental kick as of late and can't get enough of these two songs from Jason Richardson's solo album. Absolutely amazing album, not a single complaint.

Don't know if y'all have heard, but Metallica has announced their new album and released the first single "Hardwired". The song is reminiscent of Death Magnetic but has more of a thrash element. Reminded of some stuff from the first album, namely Whiplash. I don't about anyone else, but I'm super pumped for the new album

I thought the lyrics were extremely cheesy on Hardwired. It wasn't too bad though. I thought the solo was a little boring. You're right in that it sounds like death magnetic. They could pull off a decent album here. I'm not getting my hopes up though.

Side note, In Flames has released two solos from their upcoming record. One of them I like, the other not so much. Again, not necessarily getting my hopes up, but we'll see.

I've heard almost all the songs off of the new Metallica album and I really like it. But this will be arguably the most hated Metallica album of all time. A lot of it is more midpaced, and some of the songs aren't very heavy. The sound has times where it's reminiscent of Death Magnetic and others where it has a lot of Load/Reload influence

Geez, why can't they just return to their roots and do some metal like they did in the 80's?

I think it's really good. Different, but good. Album released at midnight last night, had my pre-order in months ago, so I've been playing it all morning

I'm Not getting my hopes up for it. I don't really like any album past Master. I did like Death Magnetic oddly enough though.

Don't even get me started on the atrocity that was St. Anger.
