Strap yourselves in and get ready for October, because it's absolutely insane how many highly anticipated albums are set to be released.

October will see releases from Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Converge, Pig Destroyer, Cradle of Filth, Between the Buried and Me + many more.

When it comes to crafting albums filled with technical and compositional brilliance, few bands come close to Between the Buried and Me. The band will unleash 'The Parallax II: Future Sequence' on Oct. 9. We've had the opportunity to hear the full album, and believe us, you won't want to miss it.

Papa Roach are also set to release 'The Connection' in October. It will be the band's seventh album and will launch on Oct. 2. Another reason to get excited for October is Dethklok, who will release 'Dethalbum III' on Oct. 16.

More essential listening for the month of October includes Three Days Grace's 'Transit of Venus,' Converge's 'All We Love We Leave Behind,' Cradle of Filth's 'The Manticore and Other Horrors,' Stone Sour's 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1' + many more.
