About 10 Years: Chance are good that you've at least heard the name 10 Years over the past few months. Very few bands can elicit that kind of buzz before most people have heard the album. So now with the release of the band's highly anticipated debut, The Autumn Effect, this was the perfect opportunity to feature Brian's list. And after you hear the album, you'll see a bit of the influences that he listed above, but above all else, you'll hear a band that is actually worthy of the attention that they have been getting. Be sure to catch 10 Years while they are out on the road with Disturbed and pick up The Autumn Effect to see what all the talk about 10 Years is all about!
