Buckcherry, Dragonforce and King 810 highlight this week’s new rock releases:
Accept, "Blind Rage" (Nuclear Blast): The influential metal band keeps things hard 'n' heavy on its 14th studio album and follow-up to 2012's "Stalingrad."
Benjamin Booker, "Benjamin Booker" (ATO): The studio debut from the Tampa Bay singer, songwriter and guitarist who made plenty of friends opening for Jack White's recent North American tour.
Buckcherry, "F#CK" EP (F-Bomb): Five songs, all built around the F-word. Sounds like an F-ing good idea to us!
Dragonforce, "Maximum Overload" (Metal Blade): The British group's fifth album is its last with drummer Dave Mackintosh, who left the band in June, and also features Trivium's Matt Heafy providing guest vocals on three songs.
King 810, "Memoirs of a Murderer" (Roadrunner): This Flint quartet offers a fresh take on heavy rock via this ambitious and provocative concept album.
Neal Morse, "Songs From November" (Radiant): More proggy heroics from the former Spock's Beard guitarist.
Various Artists, "Nashville Outlaws -- A Tribute to Motley Crue" (Big Machine/Motley Records/Eleven Seven Music): Country stars such as Rascal Flatts, Florida Georgia Line, Big & Rich, Darius Rucker and more -- as well as Staind's Aaron Lewis and Cheap Trick's Robin Zander -- tip their ten gallons to the Crue in the midst of its farewell tour.
