CD Review: New Music From Heavy Metal Artists Psy:code, On Top & American Wrecking Company

There's new heavy metal music arriving this August from Psy:code, On Top and American Wrecking Company. The first Friday of the month saw the Pavement Entertainment debut from Psy:Code titled "Morke." It features 13-tracks of hard-hitting heavy metal, beginning with the screams of "Leech." The music motors through the song while Schou's vocals glide over the top to inject you with adrenaline. The energy picks up with the hardcore assault of "Ghost Of You" and "Riven" as Psy:Code examine the dark side of hardcore metal. They step back from their attack on your ears for the more melodic, goth-like tones of "Paralyzed," before the buzzsaw guitar riffs of "Introspective." They finish up their new release with the hardcore metal blast of "The Monument" and then the emotional-fueled screams of "The Strain" as the music chugs along in the backdrop. To find out more about Psy:Code and their latest release "Morke," please visit psycode.info.

Next up is the new EP from the hardcore rockers from Philadelphia, On Top. Their new album "Top Dollar" will be released on August 18th and features four songs that will certainly grab your attention. Their sound on this latest release grittier than their past releases as they feature a mix between classic Dokken and Rage Against The Machine. They open the album with the up-tempo rocker "Lovin' The Devil" led by guitar wizard Ric Haas' solos. The new release continues with "Walk The Walk" as singer/bassist Jaron Gulino rolls out the lyrics of the song like Zack De La Rocha from Rage Against The Machine. They finish up their new release with "This Way" as drummer Danny Piselli powers the song's intense, hard rock rhythm.

Last, but not least we get to the latest album from Washington's premier metal band American Wrecking Company. Their new album titled "Everything And Nothing" rings the alarm in your head with the onslaught of hardcore vocals and the twin guitar attack of Randy Bebich and Ben Reynard on the opening title track. The chugging rhythm of "From Grace" and the blazing speed of "Health For Wealth" will have you raging along with lead singer T.J. Cornelius. Founding member Jeff Bloomfield powers the rhythm of "The Burning" with his bass grooves as drummer Dylan Hickey keeps the pace of the intense delivery of "Enemy." They finish up their new album with the final hardcore blast of "Mad By Design" and "Day Of Shame."
