Marilyn Manson, ‘No Reflection’
There’s no doubt that Marilyn Manson is back on top of his game with latest album, ‘Born Villain,’ and it’s debut single ’No Reflection.’
The rock icon explained to Loudwire that he chose ‘No Reflection’ as the first single off the album because, “If the record were a movie, that’s the song I would use for the trailer.”
Foo Fighters, ‘Bridge Burning’
Right out of the gate, the song ‘Bridge Burning’ goes from a tingling light guitar riff to some mauling percussion and crunchy riffs that scream Foo Fighters.
The tune is the band’s latest single off of their very successful 2011 album ‘Wasting Light,’ and features frontman Dave Grohl mixing lullaby-like vocals with a bellowing yell.
Dead Sara, ‘Weatherman’
Dead Sara have unleashed one of the most powerful rock singles of 2012 with the tune ‘Weatherman’ off of their self-titled debut album.
Frontwoman Emily Armstrong showcases vocal layers that can go from a raspy softness to a soaring yell, while guitarist Siouxsie Medley delivers some heavy and infectious riffs.

After 15 long years, Soundgarden have finally released a new song, ‘Live To Rise,’ and it does not disappoint.
The tune, which is featured on the companion CD to this year’s blockbuster film ‘The Avengers,’ proves that Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s voice is as hauntingly mesmerizing as ever. Look for a new Soundgarden album later this year.
Chevelle, ‘Hats Off to the Bull’
The title track and latest single off Chevelle’s 2011 album ‘Hats Off to the Bull’ starts off soft and keeps elevating.
