Long running alt-metal combo The Deftones have announced that Tuesday, November 12, will be the release date for Koi No Yokan, their first collection of new material since 2010's Diamond Eyes.

The record is one of the many highly anticipated albums hitting stores, prompting me to take a look at more must-hear heavy records slated for release this fall, including a crunchy new disc from ZZ Top, new sounds from Down, and much more.
