1. Exorcisms (CD) ~ Bella Morte
Bella Morte returns with Exorcisms, the long-awaited
follow-up to After the Flood. The new album sees
huge growth for the band, both musically and
thematically. The listener gets the sense that vocalist
Andy Deane is purging himself of something, be it
sorrow, loss, or love. The mournful remembrances of
Reflections, the declarations of the title track to let
go of what was, even the cover of Depeche Mode s
classic Never Let Me Down all serve to illustrate
this overarching sense of lament. As Deane sings in
the title track, Exorcisms, see Bella Morte burn
what has been.
2. Home For Christmas (CD) ~ Tom Wopat
The Duke Boys are back together again, but this time with a big band and Christmas songs!
Since the ending of Dukes of Hazzard, the boys have spent some time building impressive resumes. Tom Wopat became a Broadway mainstay earning himself Tony Nominations for "Annie Get Your Gun" and "A Catered Affair." He's also proven to be a superior jazz singer releasing four outstanding albums, the latest being I've Got Your Number.
John Schneider, on the other hand, also delved into a music career after the Dukes, but in the likes of country music, topping the charts with a handful of tunes. He has also been involved in film making and has been staying active in television with his most notable role playing Clark Kent's dad on "Smallville."

4. Night of the Hammer (CD) ~ Dawnbringer
2014 full-length from metal visionary Chris Black (also of High Spirits) takes the band's sound to the next level of heavy metal glory. Dawnbringer has become a force in underground realms over the last several years, releasing a number of acclaimed albums. Lamentably, we live in an age where the majority of heavy metal is laughable at best. With NIGHT OF THE HAMMER, Dawnbringer is once again ready to remind us that metal's true spirit is still alive and well. Recorded in Oakland's legendary Sharkbite Studios, NIGHT OF THE HAMMER is another glorious chapter in the band's repertoire that showcases Black as one of the genre's true visionaries. No image, no false attitude, no posturing or posing - just pure, heartfelt, genuine heavy metal the way it should be.
