The eels Deconstruction is a 15 track album with two short instrumentals. It is the 12th studio album of a band that has been around since the mid 90's with occasional hits all along the way. The band created music that went on the Shrek soundtrack humorously enough. The Album is a studio arrangement wonder, with a full orchestra accompanying some of the works and accoustic guitar guiding the rythym.

If you like garage punk with rough edges and heavy guitars, this album is for you. The cover art, the intruments, and the singers have a raw unflitered vibe. The song lyrics are mostly about drugs and fast paced living with occasional odes to previous stars. The singer yells every word, the guitars are slamming from beginning to end, and most songs are under 3 minutes long.

Titus Andronicus's album "A Productive Cough" is a rowdy, fun album to say the very least. Every song made me feel like I should be at a rowdy pub screaming/singing to the songs on this album with my buddies and the rest of the crowd. As I write this review, I too have a cough and am being productive so I may be a little biased about this album. While the album is only seven songs long, each song is on average 6:45 long, which may turn some listeners off. However, these songs don't drag on and if anything make you want to sing along by the end of the song.

The Rolling Stones - the iconic '70s band had to have some influence on this album because of this album's overall '70s vibe
Sounds Like: 
Bob Dylan - obviously because they even did a cover of "Like a Rolling Stone"

Black Label Society has released another album, although this time it is simply a greatest hits album. With all the classics, this album is great for any nostalgic stoner metalhead. Sounding very similarly to Corrosion of Conformity or Black Sabbath, the guitars lead the way on most tracks. The vocals of Zakk Wylde are soothing and friendly to any metal ears, so this album was just a really nice addition to Black Label Society. If you've heard any Black Label Society album, then you've heard a song or two on here.

Put on your helmets and get ready to catch your heart when it bursts out of your chest for Iron Maiden's Book of Souls, the Live Chapter. With top picks from their worldwide Book of Souls tour, Iron Maiden pieced this album together, composed of their favored and most well-recieved tracks, to bring their sound in all its glory to the stage. This tour went from February of 2016 to July of 2017, more than a year of traveling to 39 countries worldwide, and the album is made up of the tracks that absolutely blew the audience as well as myself away.

Maybe Metallica, but is their anyone who truly sounds like Iron Maiden?

If you are looking for a flashback to your sixth grade emo self, this is the album for you.  Rap Rock band from L.A., Hollywood Undead, is out with their new album, V. This is the epitome of emo music and if you don’t immediately think of black overdone eyeliner and hair parted way to the side when you hear this, you have been living under a rock. In my opinion, the rap sequences in all the songs are not very impressive. They also tend to like the lyrics “six feet deep” and referring to themselves.

With the well-known Zakk Wylde and new guitarist Dario Lorina, Black Label Society releases a single track from their soon-to-be-released album, Grimmest Hits. The track starts with a sick cadence and immediately immerses the listener into the groove of the song. With the dirty, American metal undertones and dark, Ozzy-influenced overtones, this track is an ideal preview of the album to come, as it not only gets the listener invested, it gives a taste of the band's sound and what one can expect.
