"The Hard + The Heavy Volume One" (Redline Records)
Reviewed by Snidermann
"The Hard + The Heavy Volume One," a compilation on Redline Records (a division of Rhino Entertainment Company) is a showcase of the very best heavy metal artists around today. The impressive list of acts plays like a Who’s Who of metal music today. It is one of the best collections of metal music to come along since the soundtrack to last summer's mega movie “The Matrix.” I would be remiss if I did not mention all the acts on this two CD set, so here goes;
Queens Of The Stone Age
One Minute Silence
This collection has it all. It's a great way to sample music by the above bands before you buy their full-length CD’s. Some of the bands I plan on paying more attention to after listening to this CD are P.O.D., Puya (Latin metal, of all things. Sounds great!) Slipknot, Static-X, and Spineshank
A great taste of the best heavy metal the industry has to offer today. I can’t wait for "Hard + Heavy Volume Two."
A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
