The Playbook deserve your attention!!
Every now and again we will introduce an independent band or artist that are seriously worthy to be among the big name artists on this site, yet don't have the exposure they fully deserve. The Playbook are a Melbourne band who should be at the very least supporting bands like Rise Against and Paramore and creating tunes on a major music label's dime, not their own. So check out their music, buy their songs, like them onm facebook, go to their gigs and support these guys anyway you can. The recent songs and videos with new singer Laura really are killer!http://theplaybook.bandcamp.com/album/the-playbook

Guitar god Zakk Wylde is close to releasing Book of Shadows II. The 1996 Book of Shadows album showed a softer side of Zakk's ability as an artist and was full of emotion and heart.
