August is a big month for big names:

We've got Volbeat today, Slipknot next week, Killswitch Engage the week after, and Tool at the end of the month.

Who's interested in what?

I've been listening to the Volbeat album for a week or so, and it's not winning me over completely. Too much rehashing their old songs, and I'm not sure they know what direction they want to go anymore. It's good, but not one of their best, by any means.

I just listened to the new Killswitch record, and I'm sorry, but I still don't get what's so great about Jesse. His voice is fine, but I don't hear many memorable songs coming from him. I like this better than "Incarnate", but that's not saying much. Howard's hooks on the Light The Torch album last year absolutely murder this one. It's solid at best.

I'm not going to bother with the Slipknot album at all. I've already tried too many times with them, and gotten nothing out of it.

Tool is the sort of thing I don't expect to love, but I still sort of want to hear. That might completely change, in either direction, if they release a single beforehand. I didn't care for the live videos of the new songs they played.
