Gold are really good. You should listen to them. I classified them in our power metal category only because if Gold played power metal that would actually maybe be the weirdest experimental music ever and very rad. They DO play their own awesome kind of music, which is different than what many bands are doing. Optimist has some sweet jams. "White Noise" has a great intro. Prepare to be melted in a metallic wash of BM, post-rock and plaintive melodic musings.

And a phenomenal year of metal continues through the month of February. Well, my fellow heathens and cretins, this was another month where I’m literally sweating over my top picks for the month. Let me remind you again, I haven’t listened to every single album that has come out this month. Who has that kind of time!? I wish I did.
And as always, I’m rambling. Just head on over here to see what I think to be this month’s top metal albums. Let the harassing criticism begin!Add to My Radar
