HIRAX- 'New Age Of Terror' CD.  For whatever reason, the long discography of SoCal thrashers Hirax is heavy on singles and EPs, but light on full-lengths. Of these, The New Age of Terror is perhaps the band's strongest work. "Band" is perhaps an overstatement, as singer Katon DePena is the only remaining original member, with an endlessly revolving door of bandmates. Whatever motley crew he assembled here delivered, and then some. The record's vitality is even more amazing considering that it was Hirax' first full-length after a decade-plus hiatus. Never mind that much of it recalls Slayer and early Metallica ("El Dia de Los Muertos" also bears an eerie resemblance to Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan") -- Slayer and Metallica don't sound half as authentic now. Quality runs throughout with nary a clunker. Opener "Kill Switch" races out of the gates like a long-lost Slayer track; "Suffer" has similarly sinuous dissonance and thundering tempos. The performances are tight and energetic. DePena's vocals are some of his most memorable; the vocal patterns on the title track are unmistakably his. His mid-range caterwaul is an acquired taste, but is rightfully considered a thrash institution. Powerful, heavy production completes one of the best thrash metal records made since the genre's heyday.

The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs- One More Drink LP ~RAINBOW SPLATTER SPECIAL EDITION LIMITED TO 100!

Los Angeles' the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs spew a raw, undistilled slab of sweet ‘n nasty sonic tonic on their 7th studio album 'One More Drink'. The Cheetahs reignite the raw Detroit sounds of the the Stooges and fellow down under countrymen Radio Birdman blasting through 11 red-hot tracks of over-amplified nihilism showing even further dexterity in the world of thick riffs and song writing versatility. ‘One More Drink’ sounds like the good kind of mid 70’s pre-punk Riff 'n Roll record hopped-up on a heavy dose of classic 80's, white lightnin’ radio Rock. They mix an absolutely perfect Rock 'n Roll cocktail here...
