Australian rock legends Rose Tattoo are finally getting the respect they deserve with a new 5-CD box set titled "Scarred For Live." The band quickly followed fellow Australian band, AC/DC into the rock realm in the late 1970's. Rose Tattoo found huge success in their home country of Australia, along with Europe, but failed to make a dent in the U.S., that is until an up-and-coming Los Angeles rock band named Guns N' Roses covered one of their tracks. GN'R sited Rose Tattoo as a major influence and their cover of "Nice Boys," turned Rose Tattoo into an international sensation.

We have a slew of independent heavy metal releases arriving this month and we begin with the full-length debut release from the Swedish death metal band, Third Storm. Their new album titled "The Grand Manifestation" has been 30 years in the making, and the band came through to delivery on their promise. After forming as teenagers in 1986, the band went their separate ways shortly thereafter. Keeping the fire of the band burning, founding members Heval Bozraslan and Jimmy Eriksson made a second attempt at recording an album. This 8-track release hits you right in the face with the aggressive onslaught of "Prima Mobilae" and the hard-hitting attack of "As The Sun Watched The Birth Of." Third Storm switches gears for the slower, doom metal appeal of "The Third Thought From The Sun," before returning with the thunderous rhythm of "Gorakaathuar" and the swift, reckless aggression of "In The Wraith Enshrouded." To find out more about Third Storm and their latest release "The Grand Manifestation," please visit thirdstorm.nu.

Watching the band, King Crimson perform live and listening to a live recording of the band are two totally different experiences. Luckily, King Crimson's latest live release "Meltdown: King Crimson Live In Mexico" delivers both experiences in a new 3 CD/Blu-ray box set. The three-and-a-half hour audio document is one of the most complete and extensive live releases of the entire King Crimson catalog, delivering 62 songs spread across the four discs.
