New Releases: Dream Theater, Voivod, Def Leppard, Goatwhore, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster
|Dream Theater - 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings' - Roadrunner
This week the legendary Dream Theater releases their tenth studio album, carrying a darker, heavier atmosphere this time around. Has their sound overall changed in the process of making this album? Absolutely not. In comparison to previous releases a lot of their personal experiences and emotions are put into this album so you can expect nothing short of amazing this week from the Long Island, NY quintet.

|Voivod - 'Infini' - Relapse
Another legend of their time, Candian progressive / thrash metallers Voivod will be releasing their twelfth studio album. This album will indeed tug at the heartstrings of some long time fans, as it includes songs that were recorded by former guitarist Piggy before his untimely passing in 2005. It's been publicized that this will indeed be their final studio album.
|Def Leppard - 'Pyromania' Deluxe Edition' - Island / Mercury
Having headlined this past year's Download Festival, this 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' staple re-released a deluxe edition of their classic, 1983 release.
|Goatwhore - 'Carving Out The Eyes Of God' - Metal Blade
Heading down South this week to the home of jumbalaya and blackened cajun chicken, New Orleans' Goatwhore will be releasing their second studio release under the ever popular Metal Blade Records. Truly an album of blackened death metal --no relation to the chicken of course-- fans will be most pleased with their latest studio effort.
