Album of the Week: Lindemann’s Skills in Pills

I know Lindemann just released their second album (F&M), but I have such a soft spot for their 2015 debut, Skills in Pills, which is why I chose it as album of the week. The first song I ever heard from Lindemann was “Praise Abort,” and oddly enough, it sold me on this band. Or perhaps it is simply that Till Lindemann is half of the duo and I adore him.

Album of the Week: My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade Is Dead!

With MCR playing a reunion show in December, I thought it appropriate that one of their live albums be my Album of the Week. I chose The Black Parade Is Dead! for a couple of reasons, including the fact that I love The Black Parade anyway, and also that I saw them on that tour!

Album of the Week: Nightmare Revisited

It’s the week of Halloween! This is the perfect time to bring your attention to 2008’s Nightmare Revisited, a collection of Danny Elfman songs — composed for the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas — reimagined by contemporary artists such as Marilyn Manson, Flyleaf, and Korn.

Album of the Week: Oomph’s Unrein

I discovered Oomph! when one of their videos popped up while I was watching Rammstein on YouTube. I have since delved deep into their discography and this week, I give you 1998’s Unrein as my featured album.

Album of the Week: Britney Spears’ In the Zone

I was never a huge Britney fan, but I had a few of her songs on repeat. One of those was “Toxic,” from 2003’s In the Zone. I still think that is her best song to date.

Album of the Week: Front Line Assembly’s Echogenetic

I had heard of Front Line Assembly before, but I never actually listened to them until recently. So far, my favorite song is “Ghosts,” from Echogenetic. That is why I chose the record as my album of the week 🙂

Album of the Week: SMKC’s Living The Dream

I just saw Slash with Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators on the tour for Living The Dream and it was absolute perfection, so naturally this had to be my album of the week!

Album of the Week: Psyclon Nine’s We the Fallen

I discovered Psyclon Nine many moons ago, while I was in college. I used to listen to “Inri” and “Behind a Serrated Grin” every day while doing schoolwork.

Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet front man Nero Bellum, who is on tour with Sköld. With any luck, I will be seeing Psyclon Nine in October. (Fingers crossed!)

Anyway, I decided to feature Psyclon Nine because they’ve been on my mind since the Sköld show, and my album of the week is 2009’s We the Fallen.

Album of the Week: Kill Hannah’s For Never & Ever

The first song I remember hearing by Kill Hannah is “Kennedy,” from For Never & Ever. This album was the start of my love for the band 🙂

Album of the Week: Rammstein’s Rosenrot

You can never go wrong with Rammstein. Recently, I have rediscovered my love of the band, and both “Rosenrot” and “Benzin,” from the album Rosenrot, have been on repeat.
