Harvey Milk - Life....The Best Game in Town: This is fucking terrible. I can hear some potential in it, but's it crap. Worst singing I have heard in a long time. Kudos for not using Auto-tune on them, but sorry, you suck. Noisy post-rock shit. Just not doing it for me. Horns down.
The Haunted - Versus: Why don't I remember liking this the first time I heard it? I know I liked Moronic Colossus though. Peter Dolving is awesome. I can see why so many other vocalists try to emulate him (myself included now) I've never been a big one for labelling, but if you want to call this melodic death metal, then fine. But I don't really hear the death metal in it. Melody yes, and
metal yes, but I don't know about the death part. Start to finish, this album is damn solid. I am going to need to listen to this some more to figure out where in my Top 40 of 2008 it will fit. Iron Mask is a wicked track. "Leave me the fuck alone!!!!" HORNS UP!!!
Helm's Alee - Night Terror: Not sure how to describe this one. I want to say Neur-Isis but since I don't listen to either of those bands, I can't. I might be listening to some Isis later though. Kinda metal-gaze-y I suppose. Nothing really grabbed me about it. Some female vocals in there to spice it up though. I am not going to give this one a horns down, but I am in no big hurry to hear it again.
