Mentioned this earlier but it has come further along - right now the only album that's coming any time soon that I am really anticipating is Tremonti - All I Was. This isn't really a prog / power metal album at all so I don't know if it will be of enough interest to anyone around here. Mark Tremonti is the guitarist and of the hard rock band Alter Bridge which is just about my favourite band, and he's possibly my favourite guitarist / musician. He's coming out with his solo album which is written by him and has him singing, which is basically a first. Even though this was at first talked about as just a quickly released side project there is a fair amount of buzz about it and I'm now anticipating it almost as much as I would an Alter Bridge album or one from one of my other favourite bands (e.g. Dream Theater, Seventh Wonder, Symphony X). First samples released recently: In case anyone here is into that kind of music (and if not I'd recommend Alter Bridge to every SW fan ). Beyond that the only other album I'm now looking forward to that I know of is a supposed Stone Sour double concept album set for this year (which is likely to be of even less interest to people around here). Soonest things I can really get excited about are probably new Seventh Wonder / Dream Theater, which won't be coming until at least 2013.
