Heavy Metal

The Florida-based decibel pushers continue their sonic metamorphosis from thrash-blasted metalcore to melody-driven (almost) trad-metal on The Sin and the Sentence, their eighth full-length effort and first studio outing with touring drummer Alex Bent.

Rock & Roll

With his uniquely virtuosic singing, informed as much by blues artists like Son House and Robert Johnson as modern singer/songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Dion shared much in common with contemporaries like Tim Buckley, John Sebastian, and James Taylor. In fact, his opening reworking of Bob Dylan's "Mama, You've Been on My Mind" hardly resembles Dylan at all. It has much more in common with the atmospheric style of Nick Drake and Terry Callier.
