Some stuff I paid for!

Trivium - The Crusade
These guys have been seriously compared to Metallica in the past, but none more than on this album where guitarist/singer Matt Heafy and company sound more like Metallica than Metallica themselves have in years! If your into the old-school instead of all the nu-metal down-turned riffs and heavy screaming, you definitely will want to check this one out!
CD Rating: ****

Killswitch Engage - As Daylight Dies
Surprisingly vocalist Howard Jones does a lot more singing than screaming on their 3rd major label release, which isn't a bad thing in my opinion as his vocals feel really forced when he screams and shrieks. Everything is tight and solid, and this is a good addition to any metal CD collection.
CD Rating: ***1/2

Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist
The first time I listened through this, it just wasn't very inspiring as nothing really stood out. A lot of melancholy ambiance type tunes, with a few heavy hitters here and there. One that will basically take a while to grow on you.
CD Rating: ***1/2
