BT: The Boss, Codeine, Dramarama, Kermit the Frog

By the time you’re done reading this post, you’re going to think I need a hug. You might even think I need an intervention. I assure you I’m not depressed. If you guys want to go in the direction of melancholia, I can certainly take you there. Perhaps in the next one.

Buried Treasures:  ALF, The Verve Pipe, Soul Asylum, God Forbid

“I listened to the latest All The Remains album. I cannot believe this is the same band that released This Darkened Heart and The Fall of Ideals. The under 18 crowd must rejoice. If you no longer bring a lunchbox to school, it’s time to move on. All That Remains 2012 isn’t for you. This buried treasure is a lunchbox. I brought this with me to school during my early grade school days. ALF, at that time, was king.”

Buried Treasures:  Paw – Death to Traitors

“The first album ever to “speak to me” was Death to Traitors by Paw. I was in my early teens at the time, doing the Nirvana thing, the Weezer Blue Album thing, the Siamese Dream thing, etc.” Click through to read the article!

BT: Judas Priest – A Touch of Evil

I can listen to Van Halen with Dave and I can listen to them with Sammy. I can listen to Priest with Halford and I can listen to them with Tim Owens. Good music is good music, and Ripper absolutely owns this song. Turn this song up LOUD.

BT: Judas Priest – Hard as Iron

Released in 1988, Ram It Down boasted one single, a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” Hands down, this cover is absolutely terrible, inexcuseable and one of the worst recordings in the Priest catalog. We’re not here to talk about that, though.

BT: Disciple – Salt Lamp

Disciple’s sound is built on layers of ferocious guitars, screamingly passionate vocals, a hard-charging rhythm section, and a flair for surprisingly melodic choruses. They’ve been around for nearly two decades, and even though the Gospel always takes center stage, they do a darn good job of kicking your teeth down your throat.

BT: Alter Bridge – Never Born To Follow

I was listening to terrestrial radio a few days ago. 103.9 in Albany, to be exact. Apparently, they think it’s 1993. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Temple Of The Dog, Tool, Spacehog and Green Day. Not one song from the last decade. Yep, that’s your rock station Albany. Check this out instead. It’s 2011 on AKF. -AB

BT: The Sheila Divine – Hum

“If a band could ever lay claim to being criminally overlooked, it’s The Sheila Divine. Their 1999 album New Parade is a masterpiece. Angry pop rock at its best, a vocal amalgam of straightforward screaming and a light falsetto. Infectious, timeless, and will grow on your with each successive listen.”

Buried Treasures: Rusty – “Groovy Dead,” “Wake Me,” and “Misogyny”

The odds are very high you’ve never heard of this band. I absolutely love their 1995 album Fluke. It still holds up 16 years later. It’s a straight-up rock record with some punk elements. It deserves your attention. A large percentage of you will thank me later. Have a great Monday.

Buried Treasures: Hum – Green To Me

This is an awesome song from a criminally overlooked band. I’ve mentioned some of their other stuff on a prior Buried Treasures, but I couldn’t resist going back to the well again. Downward is Heavenward is a must-own album.
