    Best Hell Raisers - The Holy Rollin' Hellfires

    With song titles such as "1 Horse Town" and "Cowboy Ways," the Holy Rollin' Hellfires are a little bit country, but a bootload of rock. After a series of rhythm-section changes, the Beach-based Hellfires solidified, released an eponymous CD, and can ...

    Best Electronica Release - Phoenecia
