100 Unheralded Albums from 2010

Among the thousands of under-appreciated or under-publicized albums that were released in 2010, hundreds became our favorites and were presented in ALARM and on AlarmPress.com. Of those, we pared down to 100 outstanding releases, leaving no genre unexplored in our list of this year’s overlooked gems.

String-metal trio Judgement Day goes (Mid)west

ALARM 39 featured artist Judgment Day has announced a three-week West Coast and Midwest tour, starting on September 1. Coming off the April release of Peacocks / Pink Monsters, its second studio album, the trio proves that hardcore shredding is just as heavy and intense with a violin and cello as it is on guitar and bass.
