Editors’ Notes

You usually have to dig deep in order to find a no-nonsense rock 'n' roll band. Luckily The Virginmarys have surfaced to set fire to false pretenses, bringing only track after track of fiery, punk-inspired heavy rock. This British trio's King of Conflict takes from the school of Nirvana in its pure, untainted riffs, melodicism and aggression. Then there's the swagger and passion that feels like a update on the powerful, no-frills '70s hard rock of bands like Thin Lizzy with a hint of the school-of-'77 punk rock fury. Tracks like "Dead Man's Shoes" and "Bang Bang Bang" are songs that demand attention immediately with lead vocalist Ally Dickaty sneering and shrieking like a man possessed. The album's love of all that is gold about metal, punk, pop, and rock 'n' roll make this a no-contest Editors' Choice. This version also comes with three stripped-down versions of some of the album's highlights.

Mixing the power of the grunge era with the vigor of punk, the Virginmarys create driving hard rock reminiscent of the Foo Fighters. Formed in Macclesfield, England in 2006 by singer and guitarist Ally Dickaty, bassist Chris Birdsall, and drummer Danny Dolan, the band set out to create intelligent hard rock that could be visceral and fun without being meatheaded. The lineup would be short-lived, with bassist Matt Rose taking over for Birdsall in 2009, but the years that followed would see the band...
