Vote for the Most Anticipated Release of May 2014!
2014 is moving right along, especially now that the album release schedule is more populated. And the month of May looks like a heavy, heavy month for new releases. With that in mind, we want to know which of May's new offerings you are most interesting in picking up.
The May release frenzy kicks off May 6 as Black Stone Cherry return with their 'Magic Mountain' album, Stryper's Michael Sweet goes solo for 'I'm Not Your Suicide' and heavier releases from Pet the Preacher ('The Cave & The Sunlight') and Xandria ('Sacrificum') also drop in stores.
On May 13, veteran bands like Down ('Down IV - Part Two'), Epica ('The Quantum Enigma'), Mushroomhead ('The Righteous & The Butterfly'), Prong ('Ruining Lives') and Sworn Enemy ('Living on Borrowed Time') populate the schedule. The supergroup Killer Be Killed issue their self-titled debut and up-and-comers like Agalloch ('The Serpent & The Sphere'), Avatar ('Hail the Apocalypse') and Crobot's self-titled disc round out the week's releases.
May 20 is a relatively light week, with Rob Zombie's concert DVD/Blu-Ray 'The Zombie Horror Picture Show' and the self-titled debut of the Glenn Hughes-led California Breed leading the way. And finally, on May 27, KISS celebrate their 40th anniversary with the 'KISS 40' collection. The South rises again with Crowbar's 'Symmetry in Black' and Eyehategod's self-titled disc leading the way. And there's also new albums from Black Anvil ('Hail Death'), Marty Friedman ('Inferno'), Misery Index ('Killing Gods'), Powerman 5000 ('Builders of the Future') and Sabaton ('Heroes').
