Megadeth "Kingmaker"

Megadeth are back with a brand new album on June 4 - here's the opening track.

Killing Joke "Corporate Effect"

I guess the band made up with singer Jaz Coleman who pulled a mean publicity stunt last year and "went missing" for weeks after ranting against future tour mates The Cult, because they're back with this new video.

Queensryche "Where Dreams Go to Die"

This the "original" Queensryche with new singer Todd La Torre, not the new offshoot by Geoff Tate. Their new album is available for pre-order ahead of its release on June 25.

Gary Clark Jr "Numb"

This is our secret favorite this week. Bluesy soul with roaring distortion and one of the most gripping guitar solos in any UG playlist this year. Stellar stuff.

Ragdoll "All I Want"

A debut by these Australian hard rockers which perked our ears up. Look out for an EP release and US tour from them this summer.

Deafhaven "Sunbather"

Huge post-rock with a straggly calming wall of guitars on this track which "deals with the profound sadness found in the quest for one's personal perfection," according to the band.

That's the end of our weekly playlist roundup. What do you like or loathe? Let us know in the comments.

    Isn't the Deep Purple song called "Vincent Price" not "Vincent Prince" as how UG has it listed?
    The new KJoke album's been out for about a year now and I still haven't listened to it O.O how have I let this happen? Cheers for the reminder UG!
    Killing Jokes song is called "corporate eLect"...not "eFFect". It's so hard to retype or copy/paste the title.
    Silver Blues
    Hah. I actually like the Deep Purple track, maybe I will give this album a try after all. The video was pretty cool too. ps Lead singer kinda looks like Will Shatner. Clark Jr. track rips as well.
    When I saw Killing Joke on this list it made my day. Huge fan of them and this album. Well done UG.
    Vincent Price from Deep Purple's latest NOW What?! is arguably their best album in the last 20 years since 1995's Purpendicular. And that song is one of the best tracks off the album too. So happy they made a video for that! Only started looking into the Winery Dogs yesterday and man am I in for a treat. Richie Kotzen is criminally underrated and it's nice of Portnoy to give him some much needed exposure. Can't wait! And lastly Queensryche's Where Dreams Go to Die - WOW!!! My most anticipated album for the year. Redemption too is solid but I think this is marginally better. Also go check out the samples on Amazon. This is going to be a fine record. Can't say that much about Tateryche's FU album though - ABYSMAL!!!
    gary clark is gradually becomig my favorite bluesman of recent years. every track shows his progression. very very nice.
