Brief looks at new releases, ’cause ain’t nobody got time in this heat for more!
I Am Nice (New West Records). Review by James Mann.
A modern-day prog metal onslaught by top-billed Between the Buried and Me delights throngs of Orlando diehards and entertains Christopher Long.
Van Halen, the one fans fell in love with, the one with the diamond frontman who knows how to throw a kick, won a new fan in Jen Cray during an awe-inspiring Orlando show.
One thousand lucky Orlando fans experienced a virtual 3-D all-star rock and roll event sponsored by Jägermeister! Chris Long could’ve used a little more rock and a little less talk.

Live At Budokan (Epic/Legacy). Review by Scott Adams.
Christopher Long joined 14,999 other fans at the St. Pete Times Forum for Van Halen’s reunion show — sorta.
Luna Salerno (Self-Released). Review by Sean Slone.
Open Fire (Relapse). Review by Jen Cray.
World Play (Soul SirkUS Records). Review by Andrew Ellis.
The high-octane fumes swirling from the Rock Powerhouse that is Supagroup are enough to give anyone a dancing fit. Gail Worley investigates the volatiles emanating from this Alaska-via-Louisiana conflagration.
Something Fierce (self-released). Review by Stein Haukland.
Meltdown (self-released). Review by Gail Worley.
Scoring Buffy, hangin’ with ‘Nsync, picking up interstellar babes and new wave girls… all in a day’s work for the men of Nerf Herder. Julio Diaz attempts to run an extensive interview with singer Parry Grip in less than 12 parsecs.
Shadow Zone (Steamhammer / SPV). Review by Stein Haukland.
