Happy New Year! Here's To A Rocking Year Ahead in 2016!

Happy Year New Everyone!

Updated regularly with new 2016 releases - 7/2/16!


So 2015 has come to an end! It brought with it some brilliant rock/metal releases, and sadly the year saw the tragic departure of some of the finest rock legends.

Obviously everyone's favourite albums/releases are subject to opinion, but some notable mentions for me include:

Disturbed - Immortalized
Acoda - Truth Seeker
Conquer Divide - Self Titled
Papa Roach - F.E.A.R
Parkway Drive - Ire
Atreyu - Long Live
Bullet For My Valentine - Venom
Trivium - Silence In The Snow
The Echo & The Always - And After That The Dark
Weesp - The Void
Coldrain - VENA
Straight Line Stitch - Transparency
King Leviathan - The Shrine
Meta-Stasis - The Paradox Of Metanoia
WEAK13 - They Live

I have probably missed some, but these ones mentioned are worth checking out if you haven't already! 2015 has been a strange year musically for me, as some of the albums that I thought would be in this list, didn't live up to expectations unfortunately and others I may not have had the honour of hearing, so please don't be offended if missing some essentials!



As stated above 2015 saw the loss of many a great rocker including the legends that were:

May they all rest in peace & live on through the memories and their unforgettable music!

Not much officially confirmed yet, but as said lots more to be announced and in production. The most anticipated release being the potential new album from Heavy weights, Metallica which is likely to be unleashed this year, although we may have to wait until 2017! 


Here's to the good music ahead in 2016!

We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
