LoNero 2016Bay Area guitarcore pioneers LoNero are back with a new studio album, “The Defiant Machine”. Released in August 2016, this instrumental metal concept album is already racking up stellar reviews for its brilliant musicianship and relentless riff onslaught.

If you’re into Joe Satriani, Dream Theater, Fate’s Warning, and Megadeth, you owe it to yourself to check out LoNero.

The video for the album’s first single just got an exclusive premiere at Guitar Player Magazine and once you see and hear it, you’ll know why people like Joe Satriani have great praise for Bill Lonero and crew.

The idea behind guitarcore is that the songs are so well put together that you don’t miss the lyrics. Check it for yourself. Then pick up “The Defiant Machine”.

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Death Angel “The Evil Divide”

Death Angel - The Evil Divide CoverBay Area thrash kings Death Angel are back with a new album on Nuclear Blast Records, “The Evil Divide”, a tour de force of hard-hitting, politically charged metal with melodic elements. Covering a range of topics from the hypocrisy of religion (“The Moth”) to bullying and the culture of terrorism (“Lost”), this album adds a new musical dimension to the long-lived thrash metal band’s already solid catalog.

Tight and angry as hell but melodic and accessible as well, this album is a leap forward for a band that lately seems to be getting better with every album, like their metal brothers Anthrax. There is a new confidence in this album that lets the songs breathe and evolve… it’s got a more well-rounded and mature feel than their last outing “The Dream Calls for Blood”, which was a relentless attack of quick riffs and shouty vocals that felt like one long song in multiple parts. “The Evil Divide” is a great album by a mature band at the top of their game.
