We hope you've saved your money! The fall is officially in full swing and that means a wealth of new hard rock and metal releases will be entering your record stores and online queues. And there are a lot of choices for your music dollars, so we're interested in finding out which new October release you most want to add to your collection.

On Oct. 16, we find Coheed and Cambria, Stryper, Black Tide, Saxon, Zombi and the return of Ugly Kid Joe leading the way. There's also new releases from Gamma Ray, Grave, Joel Hoekstra's 13, Madame Mayhem, So Hideous, Speaking the Kings, Voodoo Hill and a Rage Against the Machine DVD thrown into the mix.
