Bad Religion, headliners of the current year's Vans Warped Tour, have recently put out this their fourteenth album. It is a follow up to "The Empire Strikes First," and Greg Graffin's solo work,  "Cold As The Clay."
While "New Maps of Hell" may sound like some of their other recent stuff. I think it is worth listening to--the more the better.

There's nothing like that old time thrash Bad Religion and "New Maps of Hell" hits the listener hard like a chunk of concrete.

It is good to hear their charging brand of hardcore -- such a relief from the many bands that have tried to copy from them.
