September 6, 2010 Leave a comment

It has been quite the month, I must say. The blog has been busy regarding both the writer and the readers. This past month of August has given generously; there had been much to say:

  • Album of the Month
  • Close calls
  • The weaker ones
  • Armoury shipment
  • Unitopia interview
  • My personal favorites of the month

I almost feel like there was no best album for August. There were four albums that were quite good, and it’s hard to choose one over the other. But life is about making decisions, so here’s the Album of the Month:

As for the site, things are becoming more interesting with the help of Earsplit, who have agreed to help The Golden Bird however they can. They have continuously been fantastic! It has been an eventful month, and the recap will discuss the following:

  • Album of the Month
  • May metal albums
  • The remaining rock releases
  • Earsplit
  • My personal favorites of the month
  • A few words for Ronnie James Dio

Despite the handful of great releases this past month, I found it rather easy to decide which is the best (stated as an opinion, not a fact). May’s Album of the Month is:

Through InsideOut, the Australian progressive rock band, Unitopia, released their latest album. It is entitled Artificial and became available on May 3, 2010.
