New heavy metal music arriving this July from Los Angeles thrash band, Survival, hardcore band Black Space Riders and extreme metal band, Hellish. First up is the July 14th release from Survival, titled "Murkin Hella Fools." It features eight new tracks and three demos, straight from the mind of Nick Noro. The music sounds like collision of musical styles, as displayed in "Still Care" and "Blood Dope." The guitar riffs of "Flames" and the quiet, experimental piece, "Fallen" shows that Noro is all over the map of metal music, with no destination in mind. The three demos that finish the new album are the most aggressive pieces on this new release, as "Havok" is exactly what the titled refers to and "Demi" tries to go as fast as possible.

Then, in two weeks, comes volume two of Black Space Riders double albums set, "Amoretum." Their new 14-song release kicks things off with the aggressive growls of "Before My Eyes" and the raw, punk-like delivery of "LoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLove!" They continue with the mainstream rock appeal of "Walls Away" and the onslaught attack of "Assimilating Love." Black Space Riders let up on the speed pedal for the alternative rock sound of "Body Move" and "Take Me To The Stairs," before finishing up their new album with the thunderous pounding of "No Way" and the 12-minute epic rock piece "The Wait Is Never Over."

Finally at the end of the month, we arrive at the latest release from Chilean metal band, Hellish. Their new album, "The Spectre Of Lonely Souls" begins with the short piano introduction of "Rising," before all hell breaks loose on the shear power of "The Night." They continue their new 9-song release with the intense, thrash metal feel of "The Screams Come From Inside," before showcasing their brilliant musicianship on the progressive metal of "Souls Of Desolation." Hellish wrap up their new album with growls of "Only Death," the neck-breaking speed of "The Walker Of Shadows" and the great guitar work of "Bloody Tales."
