    Yeah, as the title suggest, what are you salivating over?

    Mine (so far):

    Feb 2012 Land of the Crimson Dawn (Freedom Call)
    Feb 2012 TBA (Dragonforce)
    March/April 2012 Welcome to the Theatre (ReinXeed)
    May? 2012 TBA (Luca Turilli's Rhapsody)

    As you can see, the ever prolific ReinXeed will be back, apparently. Don't know how he manages to keep such a furious pace, but I'll be all over this naturally.

    Didn't ReinXeed just release a new album this year? Dang!

    Looking forward to Freedom Call, Dragonforce, Stratovarius (possibly - if they get their new drummer and finish writing/recording, since they plan on writing early next year), Sonata Arctica, Luca Turilli, that new Nightwish once it gets out in the USA, Kamelot (expected release date sometime in September)... that's all I can think of right now.

    EDIT: Oh, apparently the new Dragonforce album is called "The Power Within"... yeah.

    I've ordered the new Wolfsbane album, due out start of January

    I know that Delain should be releasing their 3rd album at some point next year

    Not sure about much else due out, but based on the above (cheers for the list Dom!), it would definitely include Muse, Sonata Arctica, Judas Priest, Helloween and Masterplan

    If that does end up being the new Dragonforce album title, then it's a ridiculously big improvement over the likes of "Ultra Beatdown" and "Twilight Dementia" at least.

    As for anticipated albums of 2012, pretty much Dom's list and ones that others have mentioned.

    AAAH possible new SA next year.
    But definitely also looking forward to the new Kamelot.. I've been out of the scene for a while with these guys, do they have a new vocalist? (Well, have they announced it?)

    They don't. In fact I was looking at their website yesterday and couldn't find any announcement of them auditioning singers until they briefly mentioned that they were looking through audition videos... so they must have had a select few vocalists in mind to fill Khan's shoes! This will be very interesting and I'm extremely excited to see what direction they go in (if they do something new) since they've thus far made the darkest power metal I've ever heard -- and I love it.

    Ah yes, very much looking forward to 'Memories of a Time to Come' from Blind Guardian. It'll be one hell of a package if it lives up to its potential!

    This:

    For his fourth solo album, Turilli plans to make a tribute to the power metal band Helloween, an imaginary Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 4 as he said. He will introduce more power metal elements, a giant orchestra and some guests

    ^that's been on Wikipedia for many a year. I'd love to see any movement at all on this and what better time than this year after splitting from Rhapsody? Fingers crossed.

    A lot of the ones I'm looking forward too has already been mentioned, but my number 1 is Luca Turilli's new one, which apparently will be called ASCENDING TO INFINITY!

    Mostly, I'm looking forward to Ascension's "Far Beyond The Stars" album, which I have already pre-ordered and been hooked on since the first day I listened to them; which again was just recently.
