Who knew that Ryan Adams was such a metalhead? The alt-country troubadour gave his top 13 metal tracks to Blender magazine this month, and among that list was a plug for Oakland's Saviours. Referencing the band's "Raging Embers," Adams said Saviours "are going to save metal. They take the best of the things that I liked about metal -- a bit of Lemmy and mythological-type Maiden, really cool choruses and some math rock -- but they keep it open and brutal." Those are some heshin' socks for sure. -- Jennifer  Maerz
