The Black Dahlia Murder "Miasma" album review

I bought this album few months ago and I'm just gonna go through the overview about this album first. Miasma is the second album by American melodic death metal band, The Black Dahlia Murder. Miasma is the only album to feature drummer Zach Gibson, who replaced founding member and drummer, Cory Grady, due to personal issues. The album's title, Miasma, refers to noxious exhalations from putrescent organic matter; poisonous effluvia or germs polluting the atmosphere.

Basically, this album is great. The riffing and some of the soloing are great. This album will always be the favourites among the melodic death metal fans out there. One of my favourite track on this album is "A Vulgar Picture". The riffings in the song are just heavy and very catchy too. Trevor Strnad's vocals are superb. In conclusion, I really recommend you to get this album.

Joe Satriani's 14th Studio Album: "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards"

I recently got this album at "Rock Corner". I expect it would be an awesome and it is. I personally dont really like the previous album which is the Professor Satchafunkilus and the Musterion of Rock. In this new album of Joe Satriani's, it features some differences compared to other Satriani's previous album. The songs are quite Satriani-ish but in this album he uses many different guitar effects. For example he uses wah pedal and octaver in the song titled "God Is Crying". It's quite unusual of Satriani doing that. The tracks I like the most in this album are "Wormhole Wizards" and "Wind In The Trees". The thing about "Wind In The Trees" is the whole rhythm guitar section is played using only natural harmonics which make this song is very unique. Basically, I like the whole album. Joe Satriani's albums are always worth a buy. Just get one and you'll know it !

1. "Premonition" 3:53
2. "Dream Song" 4:49
3. "Pyrrhic Victoria" 5:09
4. "Light Years Away" 6:11
5. "Solitude" 0:58
6. "Littleworth Lane" 3:46
7. "The Golden Room" 5:20
8. "Two Sides to Every Story" 4:10
9. "Wormhole Wizards" 6:27
10. "Wind in the Trees" 7:43
11. "God is Crying" 4:53
