Happy almost March! Boy, do we have a treat in store for you. We have decided to do something a little different from now on for this segment. Instead of just telling you the basic info such as release date, title, artist, genre, video and label, now we have relevant quotes from your favourite musicians, fun facts about the album, features, tour dates and whatever is interesting about the record coming out next month. Also the graphics are all jazzed up, same as the home page. If you haven't had a look there, let us know what you think - we're pretty proud of it!
Let's be honest, 2019 was an epic year for albums, we had Slipknot's absolute monster We Are Not Your Kind, then there was Tool's triumphant return Fear Inoculum and all the other amazing releases in between. It made me wonder how 2020 could ever top its predecessor, and after scouring the internet for both fact and plausible rumour, I've compiled this list which is a mixture of confirmed and hopeful records from bands who will or should be dropping something soon.
Welcome everyone to November's Albums list, and while there are more than a handful on this list, we're not overly impressed with this month's releases. There is nothing that really jumps out at us here at Double R headquarters. So don't expect a review of any of these.
But if you're interested in some of these titles, click on the cover and you'll either find a pre-sale link or a previous release from the artist.
We will be putting the reviews on hold (unless something huge comes up) for the week and only be posting about next month's releases, starting with the albums!
And there are some exciting titles coming out in October, I mean, BABYMETAL always manages to raise eyebrows, the Rock veterans Alter Bridge never disappoint, the Aussie Metalcore outfit Thornhill blew me away with their last record, will they make it two in a row? And of course, who wouldn't want a massive 3 disk Freddie Mercury box set?
The Aussie kings of Metalcore are headed back to Europe, and they're not taking prisoners.
