Top 20 of 2011 – Bill’s Picks

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to name my favorite albums of 2011. 2011 brought us a lot of good stuff by a lot of great bands. 2011 also brought on a lot of surprises from bands that were really unknown until their material was released or well afterwards. Bandcamp played a huge role in music discovery for me. It turned out hundreds of great albums not only released in 2011 but in years past as well. This list, my favorites as well as honorable mentions, is no way a complete list of what was released this year. There is just to much out there that I don’t either have time to get to, never heard of or won’t discover until well after this year is completely over. I know there’s going to be a few surprises. Let it be known that I listened to a LOT of new albums this year and picking my top 20 out of the hundreds was very hard to do.

20. The Sade – Damned Love – (review) I really didn’t know what to expect when this one came across my desk but I needed to check it out. And check it out I did. I was pretty damn impressed that I listened to the album at least 10 times in a row. In my review I stated “The majority of the album is all alchchol fueled hard rock. Throughout my listening of the album I couldn’t help but think that this is what Social Distortion may sound like if they were more rooted in 70′s hard rock as opposed to their punk roots.” Granted it’s been a few months since I’ve listened to it, it still has a strong spot in my top 20.



Review – Bulletwolf – As Fast as My Home Town

Indiana’s Bulletwolf first emerged in 2008 with their debut album “Double Shots of Rock and Roll”, drawing influences from the Midwest region’s developing stoner, sludge, and doom scenes and implementing their own brand of “whiskey metal” to develop a fast and energetic breed of music for hard rockers and heavy drinkers alike. Three years later, the band has returned with the follow-up “As Fast as My Home Town”, delivering a new collection of brain-blasting riffs and gut-wrenching breakdowns that embody the spirit of booze-fueled rampages and the subsequent hangovers that follow. With their second attempt at recording, Bulletwolf demonstrates a definite step up in production while maintaining the same sounds and influences that made their first album so memorable.

Bulletwolf gets across a very simple message with “As Fast as My Home Town”, eschewing progressive trends and complex movements for straightforward hard rock riffage complimented by raspy and guttural vocal delivery and occasionally broken up by face-shredding guitar solo or a slow, dragging doom interlude. No frills or bullshit; just balls to the wall rock and roll, with the intensity of old school heavy metal. Technical (more…)
