Arriving March 26th, just in time to celebrate their 20th anniversary is the new studio album from the hard rock supergroup, Tomahawk. Their new album is titled "Tonic Immobility" and it features members of Mr. Bungle, Helmet and The Jesus Lizard coming together once again to present a set of new tracks to help escape the hard times of the real world. They begin with the quiet opening of "SHHH!," which just explodes during the chorus, exposing all of their hard rock prowess. The chugging guitars of "Valentine Shine," allows Mike Patton's vocals to lead the way on this heavy metal assault, while "Doomsday Fatigue" is a dark, gloomy ballad that carries an alternative "grunge" vibe. The album's first single "Business Casual" rides along a steady bass/drum rhythm, as the repetitive chorus gets lodged into your brain, along with the rhyming lyrics. Tomahawk showcase the wide range of their sounds, first with aggressive, hardcore metal sound with "Howlie," then with the more melodic tone of "Sidewinder," which feels like an political argument. They finish off their new album with high-energy, alternative rock clash of "Recoil" and the album's second single "Dog Eat Dog," which feels like a flashback with its guitar-driven, seventies hard rock sound.

American singer, songwriter and political activist Serj Tankian is releasing a new EP of songs on March 19th titled "Elasticity." Serj may be best known as the lead singer and keyboardist for the hard rock band System Of The Down, and returns to that sound with this new set of songs. He begins with the title-track "Elasticity," which showcases the diversity in his songwriting by combining many different elements of rock to deliver another addictive song. The album continues with the politically charged "Your Mom," which takes the ideas of radicals to the extreme, while "Rumi" feels like a grand, elite sounding power ballad in the same vein as Guns N Roses' "November Rain." Serj Tankian wraps up his new five-song release with the final sonic hard rock blast of "Electric Yerevan," as he gives his last plea for justice.
