This July, there is something for every kind of metal fan. Prepare for the summer swelter with any of the hard rock and metal releases that are on the docket next month, starting with the new Unearth album, 'Darkness in the Light,' which should detonate more than its fair share of backyard moshpits.

July 12th is packed with a steady stream of hard-hitters, namely Earth Crisis' 'Neutralize the Threat,' Sepultura's 'Kairos,' and most significantly, Suicide Silence's 'The Black Crown,' which is the band's final release for Century Media. We're anxious to hear what Mitch Lucker and crew have done this time around. Also, if you've not yet been socked and rocked by the Christian behemoth Sleeping Giant, check out 'Kingdom Days in an Evil Age' on the quick. Also out on the 12th, the forward thinking Fair to Midland offer up 'Arrows and Anchors,' while Lock Up inject their Swedish metal into our blackened hearts.

On July 19th, extreme underground pundits like Chelsea Grin and Toxic Holocaust offer up new musical mayhem, while July 26th will see Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta deliver his debut solo album.
