Here’s what I like from this year. It’s less than usual but I’ll take what I can get.
I love Heavy Load. The original “viking metal” band. Traditional metal with a unique sound. Now that I think of it, they may not be for everyone but that’s your problem.
None of the Priest albums since Halford rejoined have done much for me. I prefer the Fight and Halford stuff by a large margin.
Ran across an ad for Kiss’ “Rock and Roll Over” which sent me into the YouTube black hole.
Proto-metal, proto-punk, NWOBHM, stoner rock, psychedelic, 70’s rock. Usually this makes me yawn and mumble something about do we need another one of these bands.
