Welcome to Hellbound’s latest collection of staff picks and playlists. Enjoy these recommendations and tell us what you’re listening to in the comments!


Steve Earles

New release: Fu Manchu – Godzillas/Eating Dust. Killer Cover of Thin Lizzy’s – Jailbreak, and of course, a Blue Oyster Cult cover, and their own
stuff is awesome. What’s not to like?

Live: Status Quo. Intitially I didn’t actually take to this one
much, but it has grown on me, and I’ve come to really like it.

Wild Card:  1. David Bowie – The Next Day. We will never see his like again.
 2. Metal Church: The Elektra Years. We must all heed the words of
Fenriz when he says that if someone asked him what metal is, he would
play them Beyond The Black.
