I can't believe I forgot to mention the one album I had been looking forward to for a year.
Master - The Human Machine: Another great record from the legendary Paul Speckmann. Has the thrashy riffs that are always brutal. I'm a little obsessed with Master. I have all 10 records, plus an ep and the Speckmann project album. Listen to the religiously, except for that awful Lets Start a War. The Human Machine is a must for anyone who loves metal.
