    Filter The Trouble With Angels: Former NIN cohort Richard Patrick has enjoyed success with his own band, Filter. The Trouble With Angels is rowdier and more raw than recent efforts and that is just how I like it.

    Iron Maiden The Final Frontier: The NWOBHM isn't new, but it is certainly sustained by Iron Maiden. I can never ever get sick of Bruce Dickinson; he has to most agile pipes in heavy metal. He is a siren. A+ work. This is the band's 15th (!!!) studio album and their longest, with a running time that clocks in at 76-plus minutes. Long live Maiden. Long live metal.

    John Mellencamp Rounder: The Midwest's answer to Bruce Springsteen. He's lost the "Cougar" from his moniker but he has narily lost a step. I love John Mellencamp and his rootsy, Americana rock which isn't too rootsy nor is it too Americana.

    Parkway Drive Deep Blue: Metal that'll scare the little kids in the neighborhood.

    What releases are you going to pick up this week?
