Friends, we should probably talk about this again in a few years when we have some more distance on it, but Im inclined to say that Godless Prophets & the Migrant Flora is the best album Darkest Hour have ever made. Yes, better than Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation. Yes, better than Undoing Ruin. At the very least, its as good as those albums, which is to say, its gnarly. Its safe to assume that the band heard the majority opinion regarding their 2014 self-titled release. Course corrected doesnt begin to cover what theyve done here. Godless Prophets is their first collaboration with producer Kurt Ballou, and the pairing is genius; Darkest Hour have never sound this huge or this nasty before. Its like Ballou found the worlds largest, most muscular lion and installed an extra row of teeth in its mouth.

DEMON HUNTEROUTLIVEReleased Friday, March 31, 2017
Price: $13.99Metal / Goth
'These are trying times/ we will make the dead rise,' Demon Hunter frontman Ryan Clark laments on the opening track of the bands eighth studio album, Outlive fitting opening lines for an album that marks new life for this band. Outlive is almost an anthology of sorts of Demon Hunter's career up to this point, containing all the best elements of the sound they've developed over the past 15 years, gathered in what is perhaps their most complete collection of songs to date. While it's not a major stray from their last two albums, Demon Hunter take a few welcome risks on Outlive that, indeed, breathe new life into their tried-and-true brand of metal.

KREATORGODS OF VIOLENCE (W/DVD) (DLX)Released Friday, January 27, 2017
Price: $17.99Metal / Goth
Kreator likes to take their time between albums, and it pays off with some incredibly high quality metal. The new CD Gods of Violence is a fantastic thrash album, layered with varied tempos and a generous portion of melodic heavy metal. Their last release several years ago, Phantom Antichrist, was a scorcher, and while Gods of Violence retains that same basic approach with frequent bursts of high velocity, these songs are maybe a bit more thoughtful and diverse. Phantom was one of my favorite Kreator albums, and this one stands a good chance to earn the same praise. There's no question that it has an epic quality, which was an intentional move. Kreator fans should love it, as it's stuffed with classic Mille riffage, excellent drumming, impeccable songwriting, and a little bit of something for any metal fan.

OBITUARYOBITUARY (BONUS TRACK) (JEWL)Released Friday, March 17, 2017
Price: $14.99Metal / Goth
In the late 90s Roadrunner Records, Obituarys then-label, released the Drilling the vein video compilation featuring cuts from bands on their roster. I bought it because it had clips from Fear Factory and Machine Head, both bands I was into, but in the midst of the tape (yep, I go back a bit) was a video featuring a raging John Tardy in an urban wasteland. It was Obituarys I dont care and, in all honesty, I just didnt get it. It was brutal, searing, unpleasant and, above all, a million miles away from mechanistic Fear Factory and the day-glo Coal Chamber. Raw, primal and ugly, Obituary stood outside my sphere of experience, and yet I found myself repeatedly drawn back to it. For all its viciousness, it was darkly catchy and the I dont care refrain lodged itself in my brain.

OVERKILLGRINDING WHEELReleased Friday, February 10, 2017
Price: $12.99Metal / Goth
The album is significantly different to the three previous ones, musically speaking. While these were more direct, raw and stronger in the riffing and overall explosion, The Grinding Wheel is actually very diverse, sludgy and heterogeneous in the songwriting and melody departments. The album starts in the same manner asWhite Devil Armory, though, with the head-crushing Green Mean Killing Machine, track that was already released as a lyric video a while ago. Characteristic of Overkills style, the song is a supernova of fast riffs allied with the right amount of groove, only to burst into one of the coolest bridges and choruses of recent years for the band. A great start, well worthy of their legacy. Follow-ups Goddamn Trouble and Our Finest Hour keep things in the neighborhood with similar construction and equally good amount of badassness. The first has that playful atmosphere + heavy leads combo so present in Overkills albums,

SEPULTURAMACHINE MESSIAHReleased Friday, January 13, 2017
Price: $12.99Metal / Goth
Musically, 'Machine Messiah' is adventurous. Andreas Kisser spreads his main styles into a logical order where thrash, power metal, tribal, folk, jazz and even soul (thanks to a gorgeous clean intro sung by Derrick Green) flow systematically, befitting the album's theme. Green is drawing upon two decades fronting SEPULTURA, and his tenure has been valiant. Green remains one of the best growlers out there and he deserves more upbeat press than the general indifference he's weathered. He is (still) unnecessarily held accountable to his predecessor, who is long past this band, 'Roots' road revival notwithstanding.
