Five Finger Death Punch: Got Your Six

“As a whole, the album doesn’t contain the hunger, heaviness, or energy earlier records did. It’s bigger sonically, but less cohesive. It goes by in a blur, with little memorable enough to warrant repeated listening.” -Allmusic.com Check our Catalog Listen Now

AC/DC: Rock or Bust

“If Rock or Bust does indeed wind up as the final AC/DC record — they did indeed weather many setbacks during its creation — it will stand as a suitable career-capper. It may be no different than what came before, but Rock or Bust is by many measures stronger than most latter-day AC/DC albums, serving […]

Judas Priest: Redeemer of Souls

“Judas Priest have been looking for redemption since their 2008 concept album, Nostradamus, fell flat with fans.

Black Sabbath: 13

“13 comes closest to recapturing the desperate feel, plodding grooves, and unparalleled metal magic of those first classic Sabbath records than anything the members of the band have done since, in any permutation or combination….
