Ten Must Have Fall Rock Albums

Getty
This fall has brought us some pretty great rock and metal albums. Some bands continue to put out great work while others have been absent from the music scene for a little while and have come back with a purpose. If you haven't picked up some new music yet this fall, then these albums are a must have for your collection.

Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 My Nightmare

 
 

A follow up to the 1975 album "Welcome To My Nightmare", Alice Cooper is back in 2011 with another concept album that takes you through another one of his twisted nightmares. The '75 album came out to rave reviews, and this one is no different. It has some very diverse sounds on it from rock,to disco themed songs (only fitting for a Cooper nightmare). If you are a Cooper fan and don't have this one, you'll need to pick it up.

Staind - Staind


 
 

The self-titled 7th studio album from Staind is one of their best efforts. It's their first album since 2008. This album is hard and heavy and very far from the country music that frontman Aaron Lewis has been working on lately. These guys will be headlining Q103's Thanksgiving Hangover Show November 26th, so grab the new album and get yourself pumped up for the show. Check out Jen's review of the album here.

Anthrax - Worship Music

 
 

This album number 10 for Anthrax. It goes back to a very familiar sound which is Joey Belladonna on vocals for the thrash metal giants. Critics and fans have been loving this album so far. A highly recommended pick up.

Five Finger Death Punch - American Capitalist


 
 

The third studio album from Five Finger Death Punch is an album that both their older fans and newer fans can appreciate. They have the loud aggressive tracks you expect from FFDP but they mix in the catchy rock tunes that have caught the attention of many new fans. Jen gives this album a great review!

Mastodon - The Hunter

 
 

Mastodon has put out some great albums over the past 6 years, but "The Hunter" may actually encompass every sound that the band has ever taken on. They have some songs on this that will get you into the mosh pit and some that sound almost like a classic Sabbath tune. A very good metal album.

Evanescence - Evanescence

 
 

It's been since 2006 since we have had a new album from these guys, but they are back in 2011 with a great album. Amy Lee's vocals are once again fantastic and riffs are much heavier than previous Evanescence records.

Bush - Sound of Winter

 
 

Bush took about 10 years off, but most of the original band is back together and sounding better than ever. If you love the classic Bush sound from their debut album then you will love this collection.

Jane's Addiction - The Great Escape Artist

 
 

The guys from Jane's Addiction are back with another unique album. Frontman Perry Ferrell says that this one has some dark themes to it. He also said it will appease both old and new Jane's fans.

Lou Reed & Metallica - Lulu

 
 

A collaboration between two giants of music, Lulu hits music stores on November 1st. It's not a Metallica record and Kirk Hammett was cited as saying that basically they were Reed's backing band for the album. Fans of both Reed and Metallica might dig it, but they also must hate it. Either way, it's an essential for any music lover.
