The holiday season is in full swing, but some acts are holding off to the new year before releasing their new albums. While the beginning of January 2015 gets off to a slow start, by the end of the month a full slate of hard rock and metal releases begin to populate the release schedule again. And we want to know which of January's slate of new offerings is the one you most want to pick up.

A Skylit Drive kick off the new year with their 'Rise: Ascension' disc dropping on Jan. 6. The week of Jan. 13 gives us new offerings from The German Panzer, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, Sylosis and Wednesday 13. On Jan. 20, it's time for rock vets Marilyn Manson and Enter Shikari to deliver their latest offerings.

And Jan. 27 is easily the busiest week of the month with Papa Roach, Venom, Periphery and Napalm Death leading the way. Plus, you'll find the new pairing of Michael Sweet and George Lynch on an album, along with discs from Jimmy Barnes, Battle Beast, Lord Dying, Night Demon and Visigoth.

Check out the slate of new January 2015 offerings below and vote for the one you most want to pick up. The winning entry will be named Loudwire's January Release of the Month and will receive an album profile feature on the Loudwire site. Vote up to once per hour through the deadline of Dec. 31 at 11:59PM ET.
