One of our favorite columns to do! We've gathered up our thoughts on the hard rock/metal releases of 2011 and even if you really don't give a crap what any of our opinions are, there are so many tremendous releases put out in this age of DIY metal that you may see names you missed, older bands you forgot existed or unknowns to look up and try out. It's all about getting the word out and supporting the music!
