Abnormality are on a major metal label now, so I have hope of seeing them again someday Also Breaking Wheel is pretty good, wonder whatever happened to them.
Other band I want to give a shout out to are Lightning Bolt, Soul Remnants, The Acro-Bats, The Might Mighty Bosstones, Anarchy Club, Death of the Cool, Bang Camaro, Megasus, and Drist.
I also want to mention Bang On a Can All-Stars, despite technically not being an HMX band, even if they were in that 10 Anniversary Pack. The other songs of theirs on the RUN are pretty cool, and I recommend listening to them if you want to listen to some highly experimental music.3
Hell yeah, pumped for Amon Armath! Here's hoping for more Scandinavian metal!4
There's gotta be other metal bands out there besides Avenged Sevenfold...Yeah, I'm not looking forward to the next time someone says "But we got metal recently!" when someone asks for more metal, without considering that they mean "Metal that isn't Avenged Sevenfold/Megadeth/Slipknot!"
As for this week's songs, Won't Get Fooled Again is a must-have for those who never got the RB1 export, I feel, and the new Avenged Sevenfold song is not my thing. I love Avenged Sevenfold...'s earlier work. Nightmare was their last good album, in my opinion, and I'd love to see more from Nightmare and before. But their more recent stuff, musically, isn't really my thing. "The Stage" (the song) was fun on guitar, sure, but musically was kinda meh. From listening to God Damn, I kinda get the same vibe. The intro is pretty good, but the moment the vocals kick in, it just feels kinda lackluster compared to their earlier stuff. Sounds like it'll be fun to play, though.3
I'll also throw my name in the "Don't want Ted Nugent" pile. I'll also throw it in the "Disappointed it's a spotlight song" pile as well.
Postpone looks fun, though, so I may pick that up someday.3
@LordFlatus Please don't remove songs from the list, even if you apparently disagree with them.
EDIT: Oooooooh okay, only now did I noticed that I messed up when adding mine. Whoops, I thought it was about musical tastes, not that I accidentally skipped a thing. My bad.
