9. TAKE OFFENSE - TABLES WILL TURN
Another first full length, Take Offense whip up a really good crossover album that both metalheads and hardcore guys can enjoy. It's one of the few hardcore albums I've heard this year with great guitar solos, also. Although their vocalist isn't really my favorite, the band as a whole is great, consistently writing awesome headbang-worthy riffs. Really solid live, also. Thrash nerds and metal guys: give this one a shot.
