SMUT PEDDLERS, Coming Out (TKO)
The fifth release from a band that claims to have started out playing Black Flag and Black Sabbath covers. Smut Peddlers carry on the California punk tradition of the mighty Flag and the Circle Jerks, along with a healthy dose of early Dr. Know. The closest thing to a love song is about hooking up with a junkie slaughterhouse worker. Nice. – J. JOBES

ATREYU, The Curse (Victory)
Not sure what the hell retro-metal-emo-core is, but apparently Atreyu is leading it. Don’t take that wrong, these Ozzfest second-stagers are a tight rocking bunch, and they are definitely innovators on the emo-goth-vampire front. The production is much clearer on this one compared to their first. – J. JOBES

BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, Here Come The Brides (Sanctuary)
This band rides in on the reputation of their two star members, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx and L.A. Guns’ Tracii Guns. But that’s not all they have going on. Aside from the metal ballads thrown in for the chicas, this is the hardest rock since Syracuse’s Brand New Sin (do I hear unaccredited guest vocals?). Tracks like ‘I Got A Gun’ and ‘2X Dead’ make the Brides worth a second and third listen. – J. JOBES

V/A, Metalmania 2003 DVD/CD (MVD)
For a true underground metal fan, the huge European festivals have long been the promised land. It’s only recently that the multi-day metal festivals have started popping up here in the US (Milwaukee, Massachusetts, Atlanta, New Jersey). The DVD was filmed at Metalmania 2003 in Poland and features several cuts and interviews from each of the eleven main stage artists, including Samael, Marduk, The Exploited, Anathema, Vader, Opeth, Saxon, etc. The CD serves up ten more tracks from the up and coming second stage bands. Highly recommended, especially the interviews. – J. JOBES

GOLD CASH GOLD, Paradise Pawned Vol. 1 (Times Beach) Think early Aerosmith, late Oasis. Gritty rock n’ roll that Axl Rose only wishes he was fronting. Catchy rawk with motorcycle boots, loss, cigarettes, sex, beer and a dose of that great void that are the psychic vampires which fuel the most heartfelt songs. – L. GREEN

RAG MEN (Eulogy)
If Louisiana swamp metal has Down as their super group, then Rag Men is the East Coast hardcore super group. Featuring current and former members of Hatebreed, Madball, Earth Crisis, Merauder, and Skarhead, this group brings together the very best elements of NYHC with a few surprises. The sound is best from the first two Cro Mags albums and has all of the heavy metal moments that made Merauder memorable. – J. JOBES

V/A, The Only Constant Is Change (Volcom)
The newest Volcom double disc comp boasts 46 tracks, 36 of them rare and unreleased from the heavy hitters on today’s hardcore scene, including Rise Against, Death by Stereo and Brazil. The disc “A” highlights are the live tracks from several bands that have built their careers on the strength of their shows, such as Pennywise and Strung Out. It’s hard to resist the intense and altogether ass-kicking guitar riffs from bands like ASG and Western Waste. Listen here for something new. – Ilana Taub

BROKEN BOTTLES, In The Bottles (TKO)
The first time you hear the Broken Bottles, I guess that you could get upset that a band so blatantly ripped off Social Distortion, but you’ll get over it. Some of these tunes are comically awful (“Blondie”, “The Letter” cover), but some are genuinely funny, like the ode to black hair dye and kabuki makeup, ‘Gothic Chicks’. You’ll cringe at the picture you have in your head after hearing the tune about being in a porno with Kelly Osbourne. And the songs about gay Nazis and graveyard fornication will just make you smile at how wrong they are. Have a few laughs. – J. JOBES

THE KICKS, Hello Hong Kong (TVT)
It opens with that riff that used to signal MTV (or something that an addled brain thinks it is) before becoming the aural equivalent of dodge ball between Buggles, Foo Fighters, Fountains of Wayne, the Offspring and Weezer. Happy red balls of bounciness that leave a memorable bruise when they’re coming at you, flung by four guys with belt buckles that mean business. – L. GREEN

G.G. ALLIN & THE MURDER JUNKIES, Raw, Brutal, Rough & Bloody – The Best of 1991 Live (MVD DVD)
It’s tough to call anything in this one hundred minute video “the best” of anything. It’s the best as in “the best car wrecks” or “the best industrial accidents”. G.G. was extreme, he had an audience for his behavior, and he found a home within the fringes of the punk rock underground. It’s a sick and twisted display, but it’s safe to say that no one is doing this kind of musical performance today. Bizarre fetish porn maybe, but not too many other places. – J. JOBES

IGGY & THE STOOGES, Live in Detroit 2003 (DVD)
What in the world did we do before music DVDs? There was a certain appeal to watching a blurry concert video tape, professionally done or otherwise. But it’s nice to have a full show to watch, and as on the Live in Detroit DVD, we’re able to catch a live in store gig, some journal readings, a photo gallery, and more. The reunion show itself is valuable as a reference for those of us who weren’t even born when the Stooges got together. This is punk, years before anyone thought to call it so. – J. JOBES

LACUNA COIL, Comalies digipack (Century Media)
If you have been around metal music at all recently, you’ve heard of Italy’s finest export besides cappicola and A.C. Milan. Their goth-metal surges alongside the darkest that recent tour-mates Type O Negative have created, except they have the distinct advantage of having a lovely female lead singer. More moody than Drain S.T.H., and not as pop-friendly as Evanescence, the band reveals their many layers and their dueling vocals (although you’re not alone in wishing that Christina wins that one). The digipack throws in an extra disc full of radio edits, acoustic versions, and videos. – J. JOBES

BOSTON BEATDOWN, Volume II (Crosscheck DVD)
I suppose on one level, this self-made internal documentary of violence in the Boston hardcore scene accurately reflects what some hardcore scenes have turned into. Violence has always been part of the hardcore scene, but for the first time, it is the focus in this DVD, and right or wrong, the music is the backdrop. The violence might serve a purpose in some cases, like to set someone straight or rid the scene of some fascist elements, but violence has also shut down more than one scene. Something you would hate to see here, because Boston has always put out some of the best East Coast hardcore, some which is showcased in the concert footage (Blood For Blood, Death Before Dishonor, etc). The underground surgery footage is fun if you like D.I.Y. medical care. But after hearing some of the interviews and seeing some of the fights, it’s kind of embarrassing to think that some of us are actually at shows for the music. – J. JOBES

ANTiSEEN, The 20th Anniversary Show DVD (TKO)
Punk rock can be a lot of things, but no one has ever embodied the true punk spirit more than North Carolina’s own ANTiSEEN. This 20th anniversary show DVD features thirty-four of the best from the kings of Destructo rock, performed live in Charlotte. You really can’t say enough about this band. They’ve always been gritty and punk, they’ve never paused to ponder their image. They like rebel flags, barbed wire, and blood. Check out the best from NC. – J. JOBES

ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN, We Will Bury You (TKO)
This is just a great CD, with thirty-one cover tunes collected on two CDs from Electric Frankenstein’s ten-year history. These two CDs forced me to dig out old discs from Motorhead, DRI, the Misfits, Pink Floyd, The Clash, Iron Maiden, and more than a few others, just for memory’s sake. A healthy reminder that music is supposed to be fun. – JJOBES

KMFDM – WWIII Tour 2003 DVD (Sanctuary)
In case you missed KMFDM’s aggro-industrial onslaught last year, this CD and DVD will bring you up to speed. The performances are amazing and really display the band’s ability to entertain with heavy electronic music in a live setting. But the backstage footage makes the DVD particularly amusing, showing the band in their lighter moments. As good as the WWIII discs are, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the band is yet another group of foreigners (less Lucia) enjoying the financial and personal freedoms of the United States while they criticize the U.S. and our elected leaders. – J. JOBES

ANTHRAX, Music of Mass Destruction (Sanctuary)
The combo is the way to go for the bands that can afford it. CDs alone are all too easily copied and uploaded and downloaded, but DVD tracks haven’t made it to that level quite yet. That said, this live combo deal from one of the elder metal bands doesn’t disappoint. Anthrax have carved out a niche for themselves among metal fans, and the fans that came out to the Metro in Chicago were treated to a career-spanning set, from Antisocial to Safe Home. – J. JOBES

RAMONES, Ramones Raw (Image DVD)
Unfortunately, this collection of rare is even more relevant with the recent loss of a third Ramone. After the loss of Joey, Dee Dee, and now Johnny, this Ramones Raw collection serves as an excellent memorial of the original punk band. The five-hour DVD is a collection of Marky Ramone’s backstage and behind the scenes footage, concert appearances from 1980, a huge video montage of the band’s various TV appearances, and the optional audio commentary from Marky, Johnny, and director John Cafiero. – J. JOBES

VAN HELSING’S CURSE, Oculus Infernum (Koch)
Dee Snider’s Halloween side project infuses the holiday with metal in much the same way the Trans-Siberian Orchestra/Savatage has with its Christmas productions. The narration is interesting in a gothic way, and the classical covers done prog metal style serve the theme well, and the cover of the classic track “Black Sabbath” with Latin lyrics is pretty smooth. If you prefer your fright with dark hoods and velvet shirts, this is for you. – J. JOBES

WARREN HAYNES, Live at Bonnaroo (ATO)
Few guitarists can claim membership in no less than four current bands, but Warren Haynes is a member of Gov’t Mule, the Allman Brothers Band, The Dead, and Phil Lesh & Friends. And he has guested with musicians as diverse as Everlast, Widespread Panic, David Allen Coe, the Dave Matthews Band, and Corrosion of Conformity. This amazing sixteen-song set was recorded at the second Bonnaroo music festival, held in Manchester, Tennessee in June of 2003. And the CD continues to prove that you can never hear Soulshine too many times. – J. JOBES

KILLWHITNEYDEAD, Never Good Enough For You (Tribunal)
Between the amazingly creative use of dozens and dozens of movie sound bites, decent enough grindcore, and the absolute BEST rejected love song titles ever, this band deserves to be heard, over and over again. The most subtle clips from some great films are inserted into the tunes, making them the newest stalker/hatchet anthems. – J. JOBES

BAYSIDE, Sirens and Condolences (Victory)
If the Smiths got kicked in the ass by Seven Seconds, Long Island’s Bayside just might have been the result. With aggressive post- hardcore tunes that are too melodic to be emo or hardcore, Bayside is closer to Fugazi on the musical family tree than anything else. But the melodies betray the melancholy found within the lyrics, which seem most like excerpts from a friend’s private diary. – J. JOBES

MARTYR A.D., On Earth As It Is In Hell (Victory)
Martyr A.D. absolutely destroy anything in the metalcore crossover genre. Borrowing equally from euro-death thrash and the heaviest of East Coast hardcore, the band manages to produce some incredibly interesting tunes. The double kick is in full swing for most of the disc, slowing only for the occasional mid-tempo melodic interjection. And the breakdown at the end of the song American Hollow just might be the heaviest ever. – J. JOBES

PUNCH DRUNK V – The TKO Records Compilation (TKO)
You just can’t pass up twenty-nine tracks of great raw punk on one disc, especially with standouts from Antiseen, Limecell, Tommy & The Terrors, Adolf & the Piss Artists, and Texas Terri & The Stiff Ones. – J. JOBES

ANATHEMA, A Natural Disaster (Koch)
I once asked Woody Weatherman from C.O.C. if they ever considered changing the band’s name as their style shifted from punk to Southern metal, and he seemed surprised by the question, as if the thought had never crossed his mind. I suspect Anathema would react similarly, having moved away from the doom-laden death metal band they once were. Their recent work is much more comparable to the sonic exploration of Pink Floyd, Tool, and Radiohead. – J. JOBES

SCARS OF TOMORROW, Rope Tied To The Trigger (Victory)
Don’t tell anyone these guys are from SoCal. This is American metalcore at its finest. Produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge, these eleven tunes pull together the hardcore sounds of Snapcase, the complex structure of Meshuggah, and the melody of the Deftones. From start to finish, this CD pummels with urgency. – J. JOBES

THE WHO, Then And Now (Geffen)
Yes, this is another greatest hits package for one of the best rock acts from the last thirty or forty years, but it’s worth checking out for the two new studio tracks or if you need to be introduced to the Who. Any fan can point out the obvious omissions (Baba O’Reilly, Pictures Of Lily, Boris The Spider, Eminence Front), but this single-disk compilation is absolutely full of the best the band has to offer. And fortunately, there’s much more to The Who than can fit on one CD. – J. JOBES

MAXEEN, (SideOneDummy)
As much as you might want to ignore this CD, it’s going to be difficult. Catchy, edgy pop that rocks like the early Police, early Simple Minds, or some of the less depressing material from the Cure. – J. JOBES

V/A, The Hip Hop Box (Hip-O)
If you know someone who needs a hip hop history lesson, this four CD set is the ticket. Fifty-one tracks from some/most of the greatest and most memorable from the history of hip hop. Disc 1 covers the indisputable origins of the genre, from Rapper’s Delight and The Breaks, to Kool Moe Dee and Run-DMC. Disc 2 is a good portion of the second generation, most notably Eric B. & Rakim and Public Enemy. The third CD moves into the early nineties, with standouts from The Pharcyde, Onyx, Digable Planets, and Wu-Tang Clan. Disc four is predictably dominated by Biggie and 2Pac, but the fourteen tracks on this disc of the set were most likely the most difficult to chose due to the over-abundance of signed artists. The entire set is a decent depiction of what the genre has brought to us, despite some questionable omissions and over-representations. But where’s Slick Rick, The Beastie Boys, NWA (but there is one Dre track), Eminem? Three Wu-Tang family tracks, but only one from Run-DMC? – J. JOBES

ALBERT REACT, Confluence & Scrapes (Eulogy)
Here’s some emo-core that’s fairly palatable, as rare as that may be. These guys bring a Snapcase-abstract quality to their lyrics, which most often fall into the relationship category. Best described as a cross between Thursday and AFI, Albert React is borderline perfect Saturday morning music. – J. JOBES

MELEE, Everyday Behavior (Sub City)
Every punk label seems to have one of those bands who deviates from the harder sounds yet still manages to win the hearts of fans who would otherwise not be caught dead listening to some guy crooning on his keyboard. Melee is the glistening little Apollo of Sub City Records, with a poppy Ben Folds feel that still manages to maintain an underground integrity. They have an intensity to their sound, which pushes them into the punk field, while still maintaining a different quality that makes them stand out. I cannot get enough of the track “The War” – beautiful, powerful and catchy as hell. – Ilana Taub

TIGER ARMY III, Ghost Tigers Rise (Hellcat)
Tiger Army is a gateway drug into Psychobilly, embodying the frantic energy of the music while still being poppy enough to appeal to wider audiences. After listening to their kick-ass theme song “Ghost Tigers Rise,” you may find yourself wanting to throw on your tightest highwaters and puff up that pompadour so you can rock out to this record like a proper ‘billy. The rest of the album is mellow and catchy and feels like you are taking a slow drive through the California desert with the top down in your ’57 Buick. – Ilana Taub

The Mars Volta, De-loused in the Comatorium (Uni)
Although this album has been out for over a year, it merits review, if only to reiterate to those of you who don’t own it: you absolutely need to buy it. Cedric and Omar, the former lead singer and guitarist from the legendary indie-hardcore act At the Drive In, split from the band in order to start Mars Volta and continue with something even more mind-blowing. The ten-song record gives a flowing, theatrical account of Cedric’s now-deceased friend, in a coma from a drug overdose. Cedric’s surreal, hard to understand screams and melodies provide the dialogue inside the dreams of the comatose friend on his deathbed. This is a real theme record, a story, a rock opera, with thematic and lyrical prowess matched, if not outdone by sheer musical brilliance. There is simply so much going on in these songs that it takes almost a month worth of listens to begin to appreciate them and their complex structure. This one of the most innovative and memorable records of this young century. – Josh Soskin

Strung Out, Exile in Oblivion (Fat Wreck Chords)
For years lauded as the fastest punkers in the Valley, or the world maybe, Strung Out has done it once again with “Exile in Oblivion”. Their most complex album to date is a fusion of blistering metal riffs, shrewd artistry (woven through harmonic layers of Jason Cruz’s vocals and songwriting), and mind-boggling percussion a la Jordan Burns. But don’t worry; the album is loaded with the Bad Religion style chord progressions and emotional melodies from which Strung Out originated. – Patrick James

GOLDFINGER, Live at the House of Blues – The Show Must Go Off Episode 11 (Kung Fu)
The members of Goldfinger may be getting older, but they haven’t slowed down a bit. This live DVD shot at the House of Blues, Anaheim, highlights all their goofy onstage antics and energetic punkiness that has kept them in the hearts of many fans over the years. They play some awesome renditions of “San Simeon” and “Mable” and of course feature drummer Darren and his bare-ass adventures. Goldfinger may not be the most thought provoking or complex band on the scene, but they are fun and that’s all that matters to their fans. Although I miss guitarist Charlie and his kick-ass spinning moves, Goldfinger shows they still know how to go off. – Ilana Taub

Jimmy Eat World, Futures (Interscope)
Jimmy Eat World has not disappointed with this major comeback statement, put out in the midst of an explosion of wanna-be emo bands that can only emulate these guys, because they are the real deal. These songs are catchy and they’re also great rock songs. There’s also darker, longer, more explored rock songs, mixing (a la Radiohead’s Hail to the Thief) the best of their previous albums, their younger punk energy with their older pop sensibility. And while lead singer Jim Adkins sings powerful melodies about things as high school as making out in your car and escaping your small town scene, he also sings with a startling amount of raw truthfulness about drug addiction, depression and love. This record is honest, fun, sad and beautiful all at once. – Josh Soskin

The Dead, Anthems to World Domination (Ratpack)
“Anthems to World Domination” is definitely one of the most impressive hardcore debut albums I’ve heard for years. It’s a full-on ragefest of 15 tracks, short, fast and brutal. Hardcore the way it should be – influenced by early ‘80s heroes like Negative Approach, some Cro-Mags style combined with the brutal power of the best NY hardcore bands. The Dead have a raging singer, some nice guitar fill-ins and amazing backbone provided by the drum and bass players. The lyrics are very personal and political. Song titles like “America Must Die” or “Marilyn Monroe Let Go” say it all. No compromise with The Dead! The Dead are definitely on their way to world domination. Check: www.thedead-hc.com. – Slash

ROGUE WAVE, “Out of the Shadow” (Sub-Pop Records)
Remember when your uncle got rich off that Internet pyramid scheme? He still looks back fondly to 1999, recalling his “business” that boomed and busted with the DotComBubble. Sure, now he just sits in a Lazy Boy chewing on stogies, but that’s not the only fate for yesteryear’s tech savvy; some of them go from being cubicle-dwelling programmers to the brightest up-and-coming stars in indie rock. Such is the bio of one Zach Schwartz, who, upon losing his Silicon Valley job, changed his name to Zach Rogue and started laying indie-pop gems to tape. The result, Rogue Wave’s debut, “Out of the Shadow,” is a rare treat for rock n’ roll fans; a perfect balance of sublime melodies and sweeping soundscapes, simultaneously recalling No Knife and label-mates The Shins. Highlights include the Neutral Milk Hotel-esque lo-fi powerpop of “Endless Shovel” and the country-tinged desperation of “Sewn Up.” The album’s climax, “Kicking the Heart Out,” comes with the concession, “If music is my lover/you are just a tease,” but Rogue Wave’s record is no tease; it’s absolutely satisfying. – Gregg Katz

TV on the Radio, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes (Touch & Go)
Let’s say you produced one of last year’s surprise smashes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Fever to Tell.” What’s your next step? For New York-based TV on the Radio, a trio of Tunde Adebimpe, Kyp Malone, and David Sitek, the answer was obvious: make your own record and a hurricane of hype that’s large even for the New York scene. Over stark streetscapes of drum loops, bass samples, and a potpourri of vaguely familiar elements like a sidewalk tenor sax player, a men’s a capella group, or a distant electric guitar, Adebimpe observes and explores the role of a young black man in present-day American society. Should he adapt the role of entertainer and “show ’em a little soft-shoe?” Or rebel with “fist up?” Adebimpe ultimately rejects trying to fit into these archetypes, proclaiming, “Your guns are pointed the wrong way,” and instead accepting the position of observer. TV on the Radio’s debut full-length is one of the few records in recent memory to truly require a listener to contemplate his or her place in society, and the song cycle is very rewarding. – Gregg Katz

THE FAINT, Wet From Birth (LBJ-67)
Darkly comic, self-conscious, simultaneously sincere and contrived with ironic wit; just a few of the myriad words to describe The Faint’s new album “Wet from Birth”. The Omaha quintet has produced what is no doubt their most ambitious album to date. Tempting as it may be to align “Wet from Birth” with the new wave revivalists that currently flood the rock scene, The Faint offers an edgy alternative. Somehow retaining a sense of “indie”-ness amidst elements of punk, house, reggae and above all else dance, the album quite simply rocks. From the first track, “Desperate Guys,” to the last, “Birth,” the transitions are seamless and the hooks are catchy. The first single, “I Disappear,” can be heard tearing up airwaves on the likes of LA’s 103.1 radio station. A perfect follow up to the 2001 release “Danse Macabre”. — Patrick James
