Also released on May 31st is the new five song EP "If It's War You Want" from Fire Follows.

His voice has come back strong, as displayed on the opening track "If It's War You Want," while "Loaded Gun" is more aggressive and in-your-face. He slows down for the power ballad "Carry This Dagger," as you can fully appreciate his comeback, before closing his new album with the mainstream rock appeal of "No Ashes Remain."

Arriving the first week of June is the latest release "Rise Up" from the Long Island heavy metal band, Despyre. It features nine tracks, beginning with the aggressive, hard-hitting blast "Liberate" and the heavy pounding of "Regret." Despyre deliver a more mainstream metal sound with "Evil Inside," before returning to the hardcore attack of "Complicated." They finish up their new album with the classic metal chugging guitar riffs of "Hell Freezes Over" and the quiet acoustic of "Blu Sky (Reborn)."

The following week features the arrival of the debut album "Through The Blast," from the hard rock band, Blacklist Regulars. Their new eleven-song release kicks off with the strong, raw and aggressive nature of "Blind" and "Falling From The Sun." Their music carries a modern edge that should get them recognition on the radio with the addictive flow of songs like "Denial" and "Don't Give Up." The chugging guitar riffs of "Break The Chain" and the swift pace of "Beyond" combine the elements of early Seattle-grunge rock with a classic heavy metal vibe that makes Blacklist Regulars one of the most exciting bands to arrive on the hard rock scene.

On June 21st, arrives the new album from modern metal/rock pioneers (Hed) P.E. The band's eleventh studio release titled "Stampede" looks to continue the popularity of their 2016 album "Forever." They have been known to combine heavy metal, punk, hip-hop, reggae and whatever else they can throw together in order to make a sound that they are proud of. The album kicks off with "NoApologies," a pop/hip-hop rhythm that gets overtaken by big guitar riffs. (Hed) P.E. bring together a hardcore metal sound, while spilling lyrics like a reggae/rap act on "CanIRock." They work in more electronics on "BossUp," before speeding things up with the intense punk fury of "WhyNotMe." The hip-hop mold continues with "Rise" and "Untouchable," before closing with the accessible "TimeOfMyLife."
