Album: Egomaniac
Artist: Kongos
Label: Epic 
Released: June 10

Egomaniac for sure get’s my vote for one of the best albums of 2016. Egomaniac is an album that I enjoyed listening to every single song on it, and Kongo’s use of an accordion in a rock band is really ballsy, but damn it really works. If you haven’t yet , give this album a listen. You won’t be disappointed.

Album: Seal The Deal And Lets Boogie
Artist: Volbeat
Label: Universal 
Released: June 3

From Michael Poulsen’s solid guitar work vocals, to Rob Caggiano (ex-Anthrax) killing it on guitar, this album is a must-hear for all heavy metal fans.

Album: Post Pop Depression
Artist: Iggy Pop
Label: Loma Vista Recordings
Released: March 18

Iggy Pop sounds as angry and as good as ever on the album, Post Pop Depression. I like this album it’s what Iggy is all about: Sex Drugs And Rock N Roll .

Post Pop Depression is said to be Iggy Pop’s last album, bringing to a close of 50 years of Iggy. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if it’s true or not.

Album: For All Kings
Artist: Anthrax
Label: Nuclear Blast
Released: February 19 

anthrax-for-all-kings-cover

One of “The Big Four” heavy metal bands, Anthrax killed it on their newest album, For All Kings, including some really catchy tunes with “Evil Twin” and “Suzerain”.

Did I hear someone say “moshpit” ?

Album: Black Cat
Artist: Zucchero
Label: Universal
Released: April 29

Black Cat is the 12th album by Italian Blues Rocker Zucchero.

Apart from the language barrier, which to be honest, doesn’t matter, Black Cat is just a great album. It’s Soulful , it’s the Blues, it’s Rock, it’s Good.
