1. Between the Buried and Me, "Telos"
Despite being titled The Parallax II: Future Sequence, Between the Buried and Me's new full-length, out October 9, confirms their status in the metal elite.
2. Converge, "Aimless Arrows"
Three years later, Axe to Fall is one of my all-time favorite albums. I can't wait to find out what happens next by October 9.
3. Deftones, "Leathers"
I didn't think the Deftones could top Diamond Eyes, but the first song from Koi No Yokan, out November 13, is metalgaze perfection.
4. Pig Destroyer, "Burning Palm"
Just in case five years was long enough for you to forget that nobody does grindcore better, Pig Destroyer is coming back with Book Burner, out October 22.
5. Revocation, "Teratogenesis"
America's best death metal band has a free new EP out this Tuesday. No excuses to miss this one.
