18. Fair to Midland Arrows & Anchors

I heard of Fair to Midland before but never bothered to check them out until I saw this album was getting positive reviews from all over and was highly ranked on rym. These guys have a pretty unique style. I think they are more alternative rock then metal but calling them alternative metal isnt too far off. Frontman Darroh Sudderth makes this band in my opinion. His vocals are pretty impressive and hes batshit crazy live. When I listen to this I feel like these guys should be bigger then they are. I could easily picture Musical Chairs being a hit song. Another standout track here is Rikki Tikki Tavi where Darroh uses his comical metal voice for most of the song. Id recommend this band to just about anybody, well maybe not trve black metal fans, but you know what I mean.

Musical Chairs

8/1 - Thou
8/5 - Faith No More/Refused
