Check out the Top 10 ROCK genre albums for this week
THE ALBUM OF THE WEEK
RED...Release The Panic (2013)
Release The Panic was recently released and is currently at number 7 on the US Billboard Album Charts. This is hardcore metal mania right here, buddy! It's a bit to hardcore for me. However, Red is a Christian based band and that is always an A+ in my book. If you're fans of bands like Chevelle and Stone Sour than this is right up your alley. Best tracks: "So Far Away" "Hold Me Now". Recommended if you like this type of metal, because it's in your face, for sure
