KEN mode's noise-rock growl is unmistakable, but Entrench's 11 songs favor a crueler, more cantankerous metalcore sound -- with the album's lyrical themes of perseverance and doggedness reflected in its fighting stance.

Bison B.C.: Lovelessness

Forget the decorative adjectives and the wild imagery associated with this band's name and music—Lovelessness is metal grounded in reality, the kind that deals with real, every-day emotion. This is blood music at its best.

Neurosis: Honor Found in Decay

You're guaranteed integrity from a Neurosis release, and the band's latest and 10th studio album, Honor Found in Decay, is no different. It's been five long years since the onslaught of 2007's Given to the Rising, but fans’ patience has been amply rewarded.

Beastwars: Beastwars

The sonic-bluster that Beastwars summon on their debut—smashing together sludge, doom, and AmRep noise rock—finally sees a global release, courtesy of Destroy/EMI Records.

Corrosion of Conformity: Corrosion of Conformity

Corrosion of Conformity may have changed a few members, but the band as a whole have not lost any of their muscle. With the band's venerated Animosity era line-up back together, the group's latest self-titled album has all the strength and integrity of their very best work.
