2. Aboleth

Stoner/blues/desert/dirt metal from California. For fans of Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin (if they had a female vocalist), Queens of the Stone Age, The Pretty Reckless, etc. Aboleth released their debut album Benthos back in May. Here are two tracks I’m rather fond of: “No Good” and “Wovenloaf.”


3. Zombiesuckers

Horror punk from Sweden. For fans of The Misfits, The Murderdolls, Rancid, etc. Zombiesuckers have not been very active lately. However, they did post from their Facebook that there might be new music in 2018. Fingers crossed! For now, though, enjoy “I Turned Into a Monster” and “Endless Sleep” (ft. Michale Graves).


4. Salems Lott

Shock metal from Hollywood, California. For fans of X Japan, Black Veil Brides, Mötley Crüe, etc. Salems Lott released Mask of Morality this year and have since enjoyed quite a bit of favorable press in regard to the album. Listen to “Shattered to Pieces” and “Royal Desperado,” both from this latest record.


5. Famous Last Words

Post-hardcore/metal from Michigan. For fans of Falling in Reverse, Pierce the Veil, Asking Alexandria, etc. Famous Last Words is touring with Escape the Fate and Slaves, and they are also busy in the studio! Check out “The Show Must Go On” and “Pretty in Porcelain.”
