1. Lacuna Coil – Shallow Life
Just got into them thanks to the amazing song “Spellbound”. Heard the album and was hooked. It hasn’t been far from my stereo since I got it.
2. Mudmen – The High Road
Bagpipes and Rock n Roll is where it’s at. A new singer joins the Campbell Brothers for their 4th disc, It has taken awhile to warm up to his voice but once you do… A great disc that blends traditional Scottish music with Rock.

Best New Band
Bastard Child Death Cult
Intense, is the word to describe this band that features ex members of Monster Voodoo Machine, Damn 13, Hell Yeah Fuck Yeah and others.
Runner Up: Crooked X
Hopes For 2010
New album (Products) from Razor and Monster Voodoo Machine.
Disappointment of the Year
Kiss and Slayer’s new CD’s. As great as they are they doesn’t live up to the hype that they initially created.
Discovery of 2009
Razor. They were around for ages but never paid much attention back then. This past year I have gotten into their later stuff (Bob-era).
