Brave Picks 2006 ... The Complete List Is Here!

Hot Flashes

Posted on Monday, January 01, 2007 at 11:07:50 EST

Drum roll please ..... as voted by the devout scribes/staff of BW&BK magazine, our annual Brave Picks Top 66 is a meticulously compiled list of the ultimate hard rock/metal releases that have crossed our paths this year. And the winner is ... VOIVOD's brilliant Katorz album. In his review, Martin Popoff states: "Katorz is jumpy, nervy, punchy and organic, like an early Voivod album, the guys finding a punk rock ethic that is inspiring to action. So the sound is urgent, fastback and live, live, live, in marked contrast to the self-titled first of the Jasonic ere, which had polish."

You can read Martin's full review here. The track 'The Getaway' is now streaming at BraveTunes on the left-hand-side side of the page.
