New Releases in November!

November 2011 is shaping up to be an awesome month for new music! Today, Steel Panther will release Balls Out and I'll be downloading it from Amazon when I get home from work. On November 8, Asking Alexandria will release Stepped Up and Scratched, so that's another day-of-release purchase I'll be making for sure.

Then, during Thanksgiving week, Nickelback and James Durbin will release albums, too! For the heavier music lovers, Megadeth releases TH1RT3EN today. And on November 8, you can get The Lost Children from Disturbed. There are many reissues, retrospectives and box sets out from bands like Slipknot, U2, and Rush too. This November is shaping up to be about the best month for new music all year long.

What albums will you buy this month (besides Steel Panther)?

And let's not forget Lou Reed/Metallica comin' out today!

This could be something as Lou Reed's songs are great but always lacked b*lls, IMHO and Metallica's songs are BORING but have b*lls.

Combining the two could turn out to be the best of both worlds.

Checkin' it out now...

p.s. Wow, what a sentence I just had to read... "...and box sets out from bands like Sh*tknot, UBlew and Slush too." Okay, maybe it doesn't read quite like that, but to me it does. Do ya think maybe I don't really care for the above mentioned bands very much? Huh-uh-lo-oh! UNROCK!"

does a late October release count if I buy it in November? About the only thing I am definitely buying is Andy Timmons - Plays Sgt. Pepper.

Oh, and if I can find somewhere to buy it, I absolutely positively need the new album from 77 called High decibels. Their stuff is really hard to find, but they are so awesome!

Does anyone like Skull Fist or White Widdow?

Gotta disagree with ya on Rush Metalboy.Been a fan of theirs since I was about 14. Have saw them 3 times in concert,and they are 3 of the best musicians I have ever encountered. Being a guitarist I usually focus on my "counterpart" on stage. But Neil Peart is the only person to make me deviate from that through the 100's of concerts I've been to. The man is an absolute wonderkind behind a drum kit.LOL. Those 3 guys sound like 6 onstage.It's incredible to witness!!!!

I have ordered the new White Widdow. Love it. The new Metallica really blows from what I've heard.

Okay, I am in the mood to rant,so why not do it here at BBG. In my last comment, I mentioned that I really want to buy the new album from '77 called High decibels. In case you are unfamiliar with '77, they are a band from Spain that sounds frighteningly like Bon scott era AC/DC.

Anyway, I love them and really want to buy their new album. of course, it's not yet available for sale in the USA, although it was released a week ago in parts of Europe. Now, I have no interest in buying the album on CD. I am totally blind so I can't see the cover art. also, I feel that, in 2011 a plastic disc just takes up space that a digital download does not.

So, I want to buy it in MP3 format so I can listen to it wherever and whenever I want. obviously, doesn't allow me to buy it because, for whatever stupid reason that only makes sense to music industry types, as a resident of the USA, I am not permitted to buy it because it hasn't been released here yet. Now, does sell the album in MP3 format because it came out in Europe last week. so, I tried to buy it from, but was informed that I cannot purchase the MP3s due to geographic restrictions.

Now, I ask you, does this even remotely make sense? Clearly, the guys in '77 would like to have my money, and I'm happy to give it to them. The only thing standing in the way is the mountain of BS piled up by the music inddddustry who, in their bizarro world, has, in no uncertain terms said to me, "I'm sorry Bob, I know you want to support '77 by buying their album, but you can't because you live in the wrong country."

yes, I get that the UK uses different money than the US, but surely a company as large as Amazon could callculate the proper rate of exchange and charge me accordingly to allow me to buy the MP3s. Again, as far as I can tell, the only people who don't want me to buy the album are the people in the music industry, the people who claim to care so much about the artists yet have put a huge roadblock in my way.

If the music industry wonders why people download music illegally, they need only take a good hard look at the experience I've had tonight. No, I have not downloaded the album illegally, but clearly, at this stage of the game, I have a far better shot at obtaining an illegal copy than I do a legal one. and that, my good people, is everything that's wrong with the music inddustry in a nutshell.

Vain-Enough Rope was released on October 28th.
This album is unbelievably good! Any Vain's a must have. They could have released this as a follow up to "No Respect" easily. It's almost as good. Best "Glam" cd I have heard in YEARS!!

Phew! Xtian, you are so right -- "Lulu", the new one from Lou Reed & Metallica is one h*lluva LULU, indeed! And by that I mean, boy does it ever SUCK!!! More on this later...

Bob, hear here! First, Amazon sure does have it wrong. You should write Bezos there as I bet he would send ya the CD to make up for the idiocy of their policies.

I have it on good authority that he's no prince, but I bet if you told him of your plight, he could very easily arrange for 77's new one, "High Decibels" to be sent to you for free as a gesture to make up for what is clearly a set of stupid rules.

BTW, Bob, I think it was you who turned me onto 77 in '09 with their eponymous first album and for that I thank you!!! Regrettably, I'm probably gonna bite the bullet and get the import of "High Decibels" on Amazon. They are just too good to wait for!

Is that the poor man's equivalent of Page, Beck & ol' What's-His-Name... oh, yeah! Clapton, doin' a deal with the devil at the crossroads?
November 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMetalboy!
Hey hey Metalboy. It probably was me who turned you on to 77. I've been a champion of their music since their first record came out. I'll probably end up buying the import of the CD as well because I love the band, but the so-called music industry really needs to get their heads out of their collective asses and stop putting roadblocks in the way of legitimate consumers.

And, Bob, like you said, it hinders the artists from getting their music out there. It sounds like something is fundamentally fishy with the deal making here between Amazon, the labels and the import distributors.
