On Sept 25th, 2007 Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer released their 3rd full-length Schematics on Le Pamplemousse Records, which was ran by Rachel Minton (vocalist/keyboardist) and FlightPlan Records. This album displayed the traditional catchy rock tunes known by all ZTR&RD fans. Poppy rock music with upbeat/cheesy vocal lines and a hint of keyboards make all 10 tracks of Schematics a fun record. Nobody could ever be bored or sad during Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer.

As a metalcore fan, Antikythera was right up my ally with their self-titled debut. The album consisted of 8 furious tracks clocking at 42 minutes. Heavy metalcore instrumentals and shouted/mild sung vocals are what one can hear throughout the disc. In the midst of all this chaos, Antikythera slows down with a few soft parts.
