The month of April is set to be the stage for a ton of great new releases. Soon to be accompanied by a series of comic books, Stone Sour's 'House of Gold & Bones - Part 2' will see the light of day on April 9. As the second part to one of 2012's most highly-acclaimed albums, 'House of Gold & Bones - Part 2' promises to be a darker and more experimental ride than 'Part 1,' as professed by vocalist Corey Taylor in our recent interview with the musician.

Killswitch Engage will release 'Disarm the Descent' in April, the first album fronted by vocalist Jesse Leach since the band put out 'Alive or Just Breathing' in 2002. The record has been anticipated since Jesse Leach's return to the band in early 2012.

Other essential albums to check out in April include Device's self-titled debut, Ghost's 'Infestissumam,' Rob Zombie's 'Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,' HIM's 'Tears on Tape,' Bring Me the Horizon's 'Sempiternal,' Volbeat's 'Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies' and many more. Check them all out below!
