#5 PRIMAL FEAR – Rulebreaker
Like PM, Primal Fear continues to deliver great melodic heavy/power metal, and are no more a Priest copycat.
#6 JORN – Heavy Rock RadioYeah, good stuff.
Jorn does a great job on beefing up some of these classic rock songs.
#8 MYRATH- LegacyWhat I've heard left me cold.
Lighter than the previous ones, but damn catchy melodic prog metal.
#15 GRAND MAGUS – Sword Songs (True metal at its best)Their weakest album in years. Still decent (as I am a big fan of them), but the well is finally showing signs of dryness.
#17 DYNAZTY – Titanic Mass (2 excellent albums in a row, well, let's say 3)I own the previous, but not this one. I think one Dynazty album is all I need at the moment.
#19 EVERGREY – The Storm Within (With this album and the previous one, they're really back)Might pick it up later.
#28 VOLBEAT – Seal The Deal and Let’s Boogie (A bit too light overall, but quality stuff nonetheless)Yeah, pretty much my sentiments.
#30 Steve Grimmett’s GRIM REAPER – Walking in the Shadows (Good comeback for Grimmett who still delivers classic metal)Hmm... don't know if I'm ready for this yet.
#32 SABATON – The Last Stand (Similar to the latest few, but still very effective)Not too effective. Has several nice tracks (my favorite being the last one), but overall a step down from the glorious Heroes.
#34 ANTHRAX – For All Kings (Excellent melodic thrash)Should check it out. The last one had four great songs and a bunch of boring ones.
METALLICA – Hardwired…To Self-DestructNot nearly as good as DM, but still good.
