    Released:
    Crooked Teeth - Papa Roach
    • I wasn't really a fan of this band, mainly because I was unfamiliar with their discography, and did not embrace rap-rock until years later. I have to say, Crooked Teeth is a pretty good, at times great, hard rock, rap-rock, alternative rock, and sometimes pop rock album, all rolled together in one! There are even hints of metal sprinkled throughout with some of the heavier riffing in some songs, and in the breakdowns, too. This was the first Papa Roach album that I purchased, and probably won't be the last.

    Looking Forward To/Unreleased:
    Wolves - Rise Against
    • I've been into Rise Against for quite a few years, with Endgame being the first album of theirs that I really enjoyed. It may still be my favorite, though I haven't listened to their other albums as much. I did purchase The Black Market recently, and it is a solid alternative rock and punk rock album. With that said, I'm really looking forward to Wolves, as it is slated to be heavier and more aggressive, and best of all, explores/discusses the most divisive social issues in these turbulent times. I pre-ordered this album and will be getting a t-shirt and an actual vinyl LP, along with a collector's pin.
    Feed The Machine - Nickelback
    • This is the first time I've ever been looking forward to any music from Nickelback. Sure, I've heard some of their top radio hits in years past, and actually liked what I heard. But the songs released from Feed The Machine have been super-promising, so far, especially the title track (which is also the album opener). This album may ignite my interest in discovering more of the band's music, regardless of how "generic" or "commercial" it may turn out to be. I've read that their earliest work was similar to their latest songs, in that it was heavier-sounding. Best of all, Feed The Machine appears to be breaking away from the trend of making radio-friendly, easily digestible songs, with considerably heavier lyrical content that is fairly grim, not exactly easy on the ears.

    I'm kinda looking forward to what people think of my album after it comes out tomorrow.

    As for what I'm waiting for, right now it's Hollywood Undead's next album that's supposed to be coming out later this year.

    Currently waiting for new Epica EP, The Solace System (liked the first single, The Solace System, but not the video, which is kinda silly) due to be released in September, Evanescence new album, Synthesis (they were already recording the orchestra, so I´m expecting something big this time), later this year and a new Within Temptation album if it comes up, at least I think Sharon den Adel was already writing some songs months ago (if not this year, maybe next and hopefully a good follow-up to Hydra in 2014).

    Entering July and only Steel Panther have released music from this list - it was ok, the first two albums were way better. Although I forgot when I posted originally about the new Stone Sour album, which is pretty good. Ghost is looking like it may be delayed.

    Nothing More and Gary Numan will defo be out before the end of the year, and the first single from In The Valley Below's EP is my favourite song of the year.

    I'll do a list of my favourite albums of the year at the end of the year. My #1 album hasn't changed yet but I have a few more albums I'm anticipating, which are:

    In This Moment - Ritual
    PVRIS - All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell
    Fall Out Boy - Mania
    The Rasmus - Dark Matters

    I may also pick up Nickelback's new album and I'll just see if anything else is released later this year that interests me.

    Actually found my post on a thread I had created about this, but this one is still up to date.

    Here are my choices/anticipated albums (doesn´t mean I´ll buy them, though)
    Linkin Park- One More Light (until now the best of the year)
    Paramore - After Laughter (huge drop in quality considering Brand New Eyes and Paramore, only Told You so and Hard Times were better)
    Evanescence - Synthesis (hoping for something great, to be among the best of 2017)
    Nickelback - Feed The Machine (was waiting fot this one, but it didn´t come close to what Nickelback has previously done)
    Avril Lavigne (she will most likely have a new one, so I´m eager to ear it)
    Within Temptation (probably, at least they were already writing songs)
    Epica (waiting for new EP to be as good as last album The Holographic Principle)
    Pvris (let´s see, but the new singles are not as consistent as the songs on their debut album)
    Arch Enemy- Will To Power (let´s see what Alissa White-Gluz is cooking this time)

    Can look into new Coldplay EP and also Shania Twain´s new album. new Mike Oldfield, new Lady Antebellum and also new The Cranberries
