New Releases: Devildriver, We Were Gentlemen, Suffocation, August Burns Red, Clutch
|Devildriver - 'Pray For Villains' - Roadrunner
Following the tradition of all things Roadrunner, one of their longtime metal stars takes their newest release to the streets. Melodic groove metal quintet Devildriver unleash their fourth studio release on the label and much like their ballyhooed, 2007 appearance at Download festival, it's sure to send fans headfirst into the pit.

|We Were Gentlemen - 'Living Hell' - Century Media
Making their debut from the world renowned Century Media records, this Virginia Beach band is being unleashed to the masses. They're an up and coming metalcore band that started their musical journey in 2005, and shared the stage with like-minded acts such as ABACABB, Ligeia and Winds of Plague. If you enjoy all these aforementioned artists, then this album should be sure to please.

|Suffocation - 'Blood Oath' - Nuclear Blast
Making their scarring, death metal mark back 1989, Suffocation paved the way for American death metal. The veterans are releasing their sixth studio release this week and incorporate a myriad of metal subgenres including doom, grindcore, hardcore and even punk. Once again, Suffocation refuse to disappoint.

|August Burns Red - 'Constellations' - Solid State
'Constellations' is one of the more anticipated metal albums of 2009 and it is indeed their heaviest album to date. Under the guidance and direction of producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, All That Remains), the album takes the band in directions never before attempted and raises the bar on the band's profile as a technical ensemble.
|Clutch - 'Strange Cousins From The West' - Weathermaker
Maryland's long time stoner rockers in Clutch release their ninth full-length this week. Implementing cohesive melodies with thought-provoking lyrics --sometimes taking a subtle and humorous approach-- the album is a masterpiece and perfects a style and sound that no one but Clutch could create.
