  • Santana: Blues for Salvador/Spirits Dancing in the Flesh/Milagro/Freedom/Illuminations/The Swing of Delight- diving back into some of Santana's lesser known '80s/'90s albums, as well as the solo releases from Carlos himself. Some great stuff here, and while none of it compares to those classic early albums, still highly recommended with plenty of strong material throughout.

  • The Golden Grass: Coming Back Again- awesome new album from this exciting retro rock act from Brooklyn, NY. Love vintage Grand Funk Railroad, The James Gang, Black Sabbath, Budgie, and The Allman Brothers Band? Then you need to hear these guys!

  • Brutus: Wandering Blind- Latest release from this group of Swedes/Norwegians is another fine example of 'brutish' '70s styled power trio hard rock/blues rock/proto metal.

  • Mangrove: Days of the Wicked/Endless Skies/ A Distant Dream of Tomorrow- still loving these three killer releases from these Swedish '70s styled heavy rockers!

  • Hawkwind: The Machine Stops- the legendary space rock act return to form with another sci-fi concept piece that harkens back to their glory days. Mandatory!

  • Grand Magus: Sword Songs- very solid new album that features some killer riffs and addicting anthems. Probably not classic Grand Magus, but highly enjoyable heavy metal nonetheless.

  • Flotsam and Jetsam: Flotsam and Jetsam- '80s styled thrash as only this vintage act can deliver. Easily their best album in years!

  • UFO: Lights Out/Obsession- the first two albums from this great British hard rock act I ever heard, and still my two favorites. Great songs, great playing, and oh yeah, killer guitar work from a certain Micheal Schenker!

  • Iron Savior: Titancraft- melodic power metal from these always dependable Germans, very accessible, quite heavy, yeah, it's good!

  • Fallujah: Dreamless- breathtaking, brutal, atmospheric, and quite progressive, that's the new Fallujah, a band who are ready to accept the mantle of the best progressive death metal band going today.

  • Tiles: Pretending 2 Run- really good concept album from this long standing US hard rock/prog band. Features lots of special guests, this one's dramatic, with plenty of heavy rock goodness and prog aplenty. Better than Dream Theater's The Astonishing in my view.

  • Myrath: Legacy- if you haven't yet heard this one, you need to...killer progressive metal, catchy, with loads of virtuosity.

  • Head Machine: Orgasm- brief band that connected The Gods with Toe Fat and then eventually Uriah Heep, featuring Ken Hensley and Lee Kerslake. Plenty of heavy rock, bluesy hard rock, psych, and prog to be found here, like a mish mash of all three bands but you can totally see how the end result became Heep. Highly recommended if you can find a copy.

  • Martin Turner: New Live Dates- great 2 CD set of shows recorded a decade ago, with Turner's band playing plenty of classic Wishbone Ash material.

  • Poverty's No Crime: Spiral of Fear- wonderful return from these German progressive metal veterans.

  • Suidakra: Realms of Odoric- these guys never fail to impress with their blending of death metal, symphonic prog, and Celtic folk themes. This one's another concept album, and a clear winner!

  • Kim Mitchell: Aural Fixations/Itch/Akimbo Alogo- some great solo albums released over the years from the former Max Webster guitarist/vocalist, and these are but a few of them.
