CDS

Arson Anthem, "Arson Anthem": It’s the sound of old, old school, hard-core, punk rock with its head in the guillotine. Taking their cue from such formidable misanthropes as Amebix, Discharge and Doom, Arson Anthem kicks out the bile-soaked jams like The MC5 with battery acid coursing through their veins.

Consisting of former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo on guitars, honky-tonk maverick Hank III on drums, Eyehategod screecher Mike D. Williams on the mic and bassist Collin Yeo, this new, hard-charging battering ram favors crude and caustic outbursts that explode like dirty bombs smuggled into your speakers.

Also in stores: American Music Club, "The Golden Age"; Bon Iver, "For Emma, Forever Ago"; Chris Cagle, "My Life’s Been a Country Song"; Mike Doughty, "Golden Delicious"; Gary Louris, "Vagabonds"; Allison Moorer, "Mockingbird"; Morcheeba, "Dive Deep"; The Mountain Goats, "Heretic Pride"; Tom Paxton, "Comedians & Angels"; Porcupine Tree, "Nil Recurring"; The Raveonettes, "Lust Lust Lust"; and Secondhand Serenade, "A Twist in My Story."
