How is it already June, folks?! Sorry for the delay, but I am prepared to let y’all know about my four favorite albums from the month of May.
Check them out here.
At the top of the list for this month is Parkway Drive’s Reverence.
Reverence is the latest offering from Australian metalcore mainstays Parkway Drive. This is the band’s six studio album since getting started in 2003. My favorite track for this album was “Absolute Power.”
This George Hadjichristou produced album came out early this month and helped me rock straight on through.
Bad Wolves’ Disobey makes second on my list for this month for its chugging NWOAHM sound.
Bad Wolves caught my attention a while back with their cover of “Zombie” by The Cranberries, but my favorite song off the album was “Run For Your Life.”
The song opens with the lyric:
“Breaking my back until I can’t even stand
I’m working my hands until my callouses bled again
I’m breaking my back for a little bit
I’m living like this is the end last chance to start to dance”
Third on my list for May is Shinedown’s Attention Attention. I haven’t listened to Shinedown since The Sound of Madness, so Attention Attention was a stylistic shock for me at first, but it grew on me. My favorite song from the album is the title track.
This month’s list is rounded out with Angelus Apatrida’s Cabaret De La Guillotine.
Cabaret De La Guillotine is a great offering of thrash metal from Spain. The album’s opening track “Sharpen the Guillotine” speaks for itself.
As an apology for missing March and April, here are some of the albums I dug from the past few months. Can’t wait to see y’all back here at the end of the month to talk about the best albums that are coming out in June!
Firepower – Judas Priest
Automata I – Between The Buried and Me
The Incubus of Karma – Mournful Congregation
The Sciences – Sleep
Judge Not – Blitzkrieg
