Alice in Chains - Black Gives Way to Blue

I was looking forward to this album since AIC reformed in 2005, and the final product didn't disappiont me. It is a great combination of their signature sounds, like a combination of their self titled album and Jar of Flies. I love the direction they took singing wise, but that being said, Layne Staley is irreplaceable. Sine he's passed, they've definately found a way to make AIC work. I would honestly vote it the best rock/metal album of 2009.



I love this album as well. It still bugs me that they continued to use the name Alice In Chains after Layne's death, but I digress. The album is fantastic and William DuVall does a very good job with the vocals. Classic AIC sound from front to back.



I do agree with you there, in that I think the name should be different, but what can you do.

I don't listen to much Rap but Relapse by Eminem has brought me back to rap.
Parkway Drive Horizons is a good one to.



I also liked Eminem. Not so much a album but a mixtape, Ya Boy Kush 2009 had some old school beats with solid lyrics

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Iwrestledabearonce - It's All Happening

their vocalist graduated from my high school when i was a freshman in 2004. i've never heard a chick scream as insanely as she does (perfect set up for some sort of sexual joke haha) jesus christ.




This band irritates the crap out of me. Keep hipsters out of metal I say.

Suicide Silence - No Time To Bleed



I personally hated No Time To Bleed. By far the worst Suicide Silence album ever IMO.

They only have two full length albums, and their demos and EP's both contain mostly content off of the Cleansing, so they don't have a lot of material to judge it against. I thought it was okay myself. It didn't measure up to my expectations, but I'm not all that picky when it comes to my death metal.

I tend to think a lot of the genre sounds alike no matter who the band is. Certain traits tend to make some stand out, such as Job For A Cowboys vocalist, but all in all it's pretty formulaic. I still like it, but like I said I'm not super picky when it comes to deathcore. It's all basically the same.
