|Nebula - 'Heavy Psych' - Tee Pee
Our modern day love children in Nebula return to Tee Pee Records for their latest effort. Does it have blast beats? No. Aggressive vocals? No. Rather, the band pays homage, with its vintage sound, to the pioneers that paved the way for metal. We're talking influences like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Earth. So if you are an early psychadelic metal fan, you don't want to miss this album.

|Death By Stereo - 'Death Is My Only Friend' - Serjical Strike
Nestling into their new label home at Serjical Strike, the imprint of System Of A Down vox Serj Tankian, this Cali punk rock institution offers up their fifth studio album. DBS are explicit in their lyrics and they seamlessly mesh punk, metal and hardcore in a single harmony, track after track. This album is a great pickup for fans of newer school punk as well as those who fiend on the classics.
