I have quite a bit of stuff on my playlist right now.
The Answer – Rise, continues to hang, as does the debut by Black Stone Cherry.
Lordi – The Arockalypse. I reviewed this today. This is one of those discs that really grows on you. Great heavy metal with vocals that you have to get used to, but end up liking.
The 2 new releases by JORN, The Gathering and Unlocking the Past are in active rotation.
The Lizards and Riot sneak in there fairly often.
Dream Evil – The Book of Heavy Metal is new. A review will be coming on this disc soon.
Funny Money – Stick It
Code – The Enemy Within
Megattack – Save the Nations
Army of Anyone – S/T
I hesitated picking up the latest disc by Lordi, but I could not pass up the horror theme of this band. I heard about all of the special guests on this disc (Dee Snider, and Jay Jay French from Twisted Sister, Bruce Kullick from KISS, and Udo Dirkschneider from Accept) and I decided that I had to give this one a try. If you can get over the vocals by Lordi, which sounds like a cross between Rob Zombie and Mandy Lion from WWIII, then you may like this disc.
The music is actually quite good on this disc, and there are several stand out tracks including Deadite Girls Gone Wild, Who’s Your Daddy, Chainsaw Buffet, and Hard Rock Halleujah.
I found a bunch of videos for this disc, so I will let the music do the talking for me. If you like good melodic heavy metal. Check this disc out!

This movie is the big screen tale of a Narf (Bryce Dallas Howard) and her quest to get home.
This film like, many directed by Shyamalan, will be one that some movie goers will love, and others will hate. It is a slow paced myth driven tale, that will leave most people scratching their head. There are a couple of horrific moments in Lady in the Water, but that is about it.
I wasn’t impressed with this enough to recommend it, or to watch it a second time. I would suggest renting this one before considering a purchase.
