Wow, it's like we have a mini-renaissance of new music going on. It was pretty tough for me to keep this list at five.

Looking to explore some new music? There's some good stuff out there. Heck, since I started writing this blog, new stuff from P. Roach and Korn dropped which I really like. I do want to stick with the original list though because these songs deserve to be blasted.

    Howl

    BIffy Clyro

    Biffy Clyro are a Scottish band that sells out giant arenas overseas. The guys sound really is all over the place and varies from song to song. The current track "Howl" is often mistaken as the Foo Fighters.  The video is some fun stuff too.

    Sorry, Not Sorry

    Gemini Syndrome

    Lubbock fell in love with Gemini Syndrome a long time ago. Now the world seems to be embracing them with their new track. It's a bit more melodic and structured than some of their previous efforts. I personally think this is the track that will take them to the next level.

    Song #3

    Stone Sour

    I'm just such a fanboy of Stone Sour. I've liked pretty much everything they've done, and I think they've done it again.

    Love Falls

    Hellyeah

    This song cut me deeper than any song since Stone Sour's "Made Of Scars". It's one of those songs that makes you feel like someone completely understands you and that you are not alone.

    Highway Tune

    Greta Van Fleet

    Do you want proof that rock ain't dead? Crank up Greta! These guys are young. The singer is just 21 and two of the other band members are 18 and JUST graduated high school (like last week).
