Top tracks shock result: The Sheepdogs maul Mötley Crüe!
3. Shinedown – Enemies Enemies comes from Shinedown’s fourth full-length album Amaryllis – and, as frontman Brent Smith reveals, “it’s not a record for the faint of heart. Every single song makes a statement. I was looking for the kind of emotion that made every hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Because of that, I feel in my heart and soul that this album is a game-changer for our band.” You can watch Smith speaking about the inspiration behind Enemies here.
4. Birch Hill Dam – Fathoms Below Formed in 2007, Birch Hill Dam reckon their sound combines the groove of 90s Corrosion Of Conformity with the triumphant arena-rock chest-beating of Led Zeppelin. With such a geeky-looking frontman, we’re not so sure – but we’ll take their word for it. Fathoms Below can be found on the Massachusetts stoner-rock mayhem-mongers’ most recent album, Colossus, which was released last year.
