With the never ending catalogue of streaming services throwing more music at you than your brain can process, it’s becoming increasingly more and more difficult to find those magical tracks that give you goosebumps and make you want to bang your head.

In our new monthly recommendations, we’ll bring you 5 of the best new ROCK and METAL tracks hand picked by our Editors.

We also don’t believe that the latest music is also the best music, so expect to discover some new bands that already have a huge back catalogue for you to get stuck into, and some brand new talent along with it.

Here ares the top 5 RawMusicTV Recommends best ROCK and METAL tracks for July 2019 (Week 3)

THE OKLAHOMA KID - Shaking Off The Disease

THE OKLAHOMA KID: "We were waiting too long to finally announce, that our first full-length record 'SOLARRAY' will be out on September 13th via Arising Empire. With 'OASIS' you already heard the heavy and technical side of our upcoming album, so let us introduce 'SHAKING OFF THE DISEASE' now. Our second single will show you a completely different 'THE OKLAHOMA KID' which brings heaviness together with a romantic nineties pop vibe into your living room. See this new concept in the music video of 'SHAKING OFF THE DISEASE', which was super fun to shoot with Pavel Trebukhin"


Their songs talk about political topics, personal issues and more philosophical problems. At every single live show DLJ throws their whole energy into the audience, not stopping until everyone is soaked in sweat.

In 2014 the band released their first EP "Against the Crown" followed by the "Tempest" EP in 2016. The first full length album "Stranger Shores" was released on the 7th of April 2018.

Krysthla - Zero Sum Game

Krysthla’s third studio album,‘Worldwide Negative, will be released on 16th August and to add to this exciting announcement they have revealed a music video for the impressive new song ‘Zero Sum Game’, a track which has received extensive airplay on Kerrang!, Primordial, Bloodstock Radio and many more! To add to this, Metal Hammer’s Louder readers voted the song number one in their Tracks Of The Week, which also featured Slipknot in the final top three!

Killswitch Engage - I Am Broken Too

This song is very near and dear to my heart," Leach explains. "I wanted the listener to feel the urgency, the heaviness of the topic as well as a possible connection. Many people suffer from mental illness in one form or another. I want nothing more than for people to feel like they are not alone in this struggle. There is always someone there to help, to listen, and to be there for you. Don't lose hope and don’t let your brokenness consume you. Broken can be fixed, or at the very least, maintained. No one is alone in this fight."


MISTER MISERY just finished their self-produced debut album, 'Unalive', that will shock the world as the first representation of a brand new band. Hungry to light a fire inside the hearts of the restless and broken around the world, MISTER MISERY not only delivers musically but pushes boundaries in their theatrical and chaotic performances. Resurrecting the wild spirit of the 80’s while also incorporating horror elements and classical composition, MISTER MISERY proves to be a promising, virtuous and maniacal newcomer in the alternative metal scene.
