Eight years after The American Dream, Walls Of Jericho have found new allies in Napalm Records and released their latest and highly anticipated record (and Jeff’s #10 album of 2016) No One Can Save You From Yourself (review) in 2016.

So the ball may have dropped long ago on 2016, which many deemed a dreadful year for entertainment due to many high-profile celebrity deaths. While our genre has lost some legends in recent years, hard rock and metal continue to thrive. I see bands rising and carrying the torch. We have the “world’s loudest month” in the U.S. for rock festivals. Metal is the most streamed genre on Spotify. Newer bands of all types of rock and metal subgenres continue to open eyes and ears not just here, but as always, worldwide. As usual, my list came down to the albums that not only initially knocked me on my ass, but also had me coming back time and time again. It mostly comprises reliable favorites, but there are a couple new surprise entries, as well.
First, we’ll start with a few honorable mentions: (more…)

The video was shot in the style of hit 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, which starred rapper Will Smith and helped launch his career as an actor. In the video, the camera zooms in on frontman Danny Leal to reveal his Fresh Prince tattoo on his arm. The singer has previously revealed his love of the show, posting a picture of himself wearing a Bel-Air Academy basketball top on Twitter. Watch the video and view tour dates inside! (more…)

Original Misfits members Jerry Only, Glenn Danzig, and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein reunited for the first time since 1983 over the weekend at Denver’s Riot Fest. Billed as “The Original Misfits,” the band featured Suicidal Tendencies/former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and treated fans to a 25 song set which was picked by Glenn Danzig. Fan filmed footage of the monumental performance can been seen below.
Prior to the performances, Danzig stated that he would also possibly be open to doing more concerts after the festival appearances. “We’ll see how it goes. It may lead to some other work, but who knows how it’s going to turn out? I mean, I don’t think it’s going to be a disaster; I think it’s going to be incredible.” Watch live clips from the reunion inside! (more…)

Review by Jeff Maki
Several months ago, I finally purchased Discharge’s classic album Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing on vinyl. I had been a fan of the U.K. hardcore band for years, but I had never owned the album in physical form. I listened to it over the next few days and thought to myself that my record collection is coming into form as I continue to fill in the punk and metal classics. Then only a few days later, Discharge announced it had signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast and was releasing a new studio album called End of Days. After an advance listen, I won’t be waiting nearly as long to pick this one up. (more…)

Revered for its aggressive and intense music coupled with self-empowering and positive lyrics, hardcore/metal band Hatebreed releases “Looking Down The Barrel of Today,” the first music video from their upcoming album, The Concrete Confessional, due out May 13 (Nuclear Blast worldwide).
Directed by David Brodsky (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel, All That Remains) the performance piece was shot earlier this month at the band’s rehearsal space in Connecticut. The video opens with the preface “Welcome to Two Minutes and Forty-Seven Seconds with Hatebreed,” and includes special text throughout that was written by vocalist Jamey Jasta as a message of keeping a positive mental attitude. Check out the video, album info and tour dates inside!

Review by Jeff Maki
I remember Walls of Jericho being part of the second or third tier of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal bands in the mid-2000s. The band even got a coveted slot on Ozzfest 2006. Though it is from Detroit, the band’s hardcore/metalcore style had it lumped in with the rest of this pack. Vocalist Candace Kucsulain was on a short list of females fronting hardcore bands and still is to this day.
No One Can Save You from Yourself is the band’s first release since 2008, the members passing their time pursuing other ventures. I had all but forgot about Walls of Jericho. (more…)
