The holiday lull is beginning to clear and the album release calendar is starting to fill up again. February will bring a variety of hard rock and metal releases from some very familiar names and we want to know which album is the one that you most want to pick up.

Blind Guardian, former Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie and U.D.O. lead the way with new releases on Feb. 3. The following week (Feb. 10) finds Adrenaline Mob, Blackberry Smoke, The Dreaming, Exhumed, Marduk and Stick to Your Guns offering new material.

On Feb. 17, you can look for the return of 36 Crazyfists, along with new albums from At the Hollow, Blood Tribe and Leviathan. And finally, a wealth of new offerings drop on Feb. 24. All That Remains, Kid Rock, Falling in Reverse, Red, Rob Zombie, Like a Storm, Alien Ant Farm and The Agonist lead the way. Bedemon, Black Star Riders, Ensiferum, Revolution Saints and Torche will serve up new music as well.
