Guitar World Guide to Upcoming Releases

As you can tell from our lists of the 50 best studio albums and the 25 best live, archival and reissued albums of the first half of 2011, the first six months of the year were stacked with strong releases.

The latter half of the year should be no different, with new releases due from Anthrax, Dream Theater, Megadeth, Opeth and -- fingers crossed -- maybe even Van Halen, Testament and the Metallica/Lou Reed project.

To keep you up to date on all that will be happening later this year, we've created this handy guide to upcoming releases. Check back frequently for updates and additions to the list!
