Hard Rock and Metal New Releases — February 2011

The new year begins with quite a slate of hard rock and metal new release that certainly should turn the heads of metal fans and long hairs. It’s good to see February stocked with new albums.

Metal Blade Records — a label clearly committed to the genre beyond utilizing the word “metal” in its name — has four releases on Feb. 1 alone, and all of them are worth a look. Full Blown Chaos will mosh their way into your blackened heart with their label debut, while Between the Buried and Me singer Tommy Giles offers up his solo effort that same week. It’s a change of pace, but certainly worthy if you are a fan of Giles’ neo-prog-death work in BTBAM. Lazarus A.D. thrash their way onto the shelves, too. It’s a busy week for Metal Blade, that’s for sure.

Additionally, Most Precious Blood resurface with ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ after a lengthy absence; the title makes Noisecreep wonder if that is some sort of hint. They partner up with Bullet Tooth, which makes sense, since the label is run by former Trustkill head honcho Josh Grabelle and TK was MPB’s home for quite a while.

Deicide bring the blasphemy the day after Valentine’s Day on ‘To Hell With God,’ which will certainly send Christians into a tizzy and a tailspin while delighting their death metal legion that worship at Glenn Benton’s Satanic altar.

Feb. 22 is another metallic release day, as DevilDriver also roar back into the metal world’s psyche with their fifth album, ‘Beast,’ which boasts both bark and bite. Also, prog masters Evergrey also mount a return with a new album in 2011, with ‘The Glorious Collision.’
