This is one of those I will buy solely based upon their name and the album sleeve.
Blood of the Saints - Powerwolf - August 2, 2011
Easily the release I am most anticipating over the next month. Powerwolf sounds exactly like the cover art makes you think they would.
Icky Mettle - Archers of Loaf - August 2, 2011
Some of the best rock to hit the campus in 1993, this raging double-guitar debut reissue is remastered by Bob Weston with liner notes by Robert Christgau. A second disc includes the entire Archers of Loaf vs. The Greatest of All Time EP as well as singles and B-sides.
Doctrine - Pestilence - August 2, 2011
Ghost called. They want their aesthetic back.
In Waves - Trivium - August 9, 2011
I know it's trendy for "real metal fans" to naysay Trivium but, to be honest, I still really like everything they've done to date. I will definitely give this one a go as well.
Baldur - Skalmöld - August 9, 2011
I know nothing about this except: 1) there's a man with an axe, 2) there's an umlaut and 3) they're on Napalm records, home of Alestorm. Sold.
