October 2013 will see an absolute boatload of new releases. Start saving your spare cash now, because you'll be throwing it around during this Halloween season.

This October, Korn will unleash their first album to feature guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch in a decade! The nu-metal pioneers will gift their fans with 'The Paradigm Shift' on Oct. 8 and we can't wait to hear what Welch has brought along with his sonic homecoming.

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison will unveil his new project Scar the Martyr with a self-titled debut album on Oct. 1. Motorhead will also impact October 2013 with their 21st, count' em, 21st studio album, 'Aftershock.'
