The production is clearly not high-end, but I don't think they sound amateurish. Then again, I'm mostly listening to underground stuff these days, so it's possible my standards are different.

I heard songs from their 2 previous albums, some interesting stuff there too. Never heard of them before. They changed their style abit but after hearing 2 songs, I was allready hooked and preordered the new album. That NWOTHM channel is a goldmine.

Coronary - Sinbad

From my notes: Smokey, rough heavy metal taking cues from all the classic bands from AC/DC to Saxon and Priest, but still manages to sound fresh, laid back and fun.

Again, full album is on Spotify and YouTube.

The End Machine - Phase2
(full album stream)

Just came out on Friday, really digging it. The End Machine was originally composed of the three members of the classic Dokken line-up that weren’t Don Dokken — George Lynch, Jeff Pilson, and “Wild” Mick Brown — with Robert Mason from Lynch Mob (Mk. II) added on vocals. Since Mick Brown has now retired, he’s replaced by his younger brother “Mild” Steve Brown for this record.

While the first album was more noodly and a little less accessible, this album is much tighter and punchier, and bursting with hooks and great guitar work. It straddles the line pretty well between the bluesy hard rock of Lynch Mob and the smooth metal sound of Dokken without sounding too dated. Many of the songs are immediate, while some take a few listens to grow on you. There are a couple of weaker tracks, but nothing on here is bad, and most of it is really good or great.

Singles:

Very good album. Yeah it Reminded me to a mix of Airborne and Accept and a little bit of Saxon. The best songs for me are Bullet Train, Reflector, Burnout and Worlds of Wonder
