Arriving at the beginning of the month was the latest release from the hard rock trio, Talia. Their new album titled "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" features five new tracks to help promote their June tour with fellow labelmates, Flaw and Smile Empty Soul. Talia kick things off with the aggressive punk/grunge appeal of "Afraid Of Heights" and "Wreckage" as they showcase the power in their sound. They slow down for the acoustics of "Bleed You Dry," before finishing up their new short release with the raging, raw grunge tone of "In The Evening (New Wave)."

Then May 11th, features the arrival of the Atlanta heavy metal band Long Claw. Their debut album, "Disastrophe" features eleven, aggressive, guitar-driven rockers paying tribute to the "working man." The album begins with the shot out loud chorus of "(The Battle Of) Blair Mountain" as a frenzy of guitars motors through the song's energy. The thunderous rhythm of "March Of The Trolls" leads the way to the politically charged anthem "The Land Of Bilk And Money" and the doom metal of "Disastrophe." Long Claw kick it up a notch with the energetic romp of "Unicorn Stew" and the steady pace of "Agnostisized," They close out their new album with the triumphant sounds of "The Mooseknuckle Brigade" and the rebellious feel of "Blue-Color Motherf*cker."

Then, on May 18th, we get the return of Farewell To Fear with their full-length sophomore release "Voices." The new 10-song album comes blasting out of the gate with the melodic rock of the title-song "Voices" and the big guitar riffs of "Wake Me Up." They pick the tempo up with the quick drumming of "Misery" and the screaming chorus of "Your Cure" as Farewell To Fear showcase their youthful energy. The album continues to impress with the heavy metal attack of "Broken Wings," before wrapping up their new release with the aggressive battle cry of the "Dead Generation" and the quieter, acoustic melody of "Take Me Home."
