"The Hunting Party" And More!

A variety of rockers round out this week’s new releases, but the leader-of-the-pack is definitely Linkin Park.

Boris - "Noise"Boris, "Noise" (Sargent House): You can't find a much more apt title for the Japanese heavy rock troupe's 19th album -- which means if you haven't heard 'em by now, it's high time to jump on board.

Kitten - "Kitten"
Kitten, "Kitten" (Elektra): The L.A. rockers release their first full album after three reputation-building EPs.

Linkin Park - "The Hunting Party"
Linkin Park, "The Hunting Party" (Machine Shop/Warner Bros.): The sextet's sixth studio album is its first without co-producer Rick Rubin since 2003 and returns to guitar-driven rock after the electronic textures of its last two releases.

Wo Fat - "The Conjuring"
Wo Fat, "The Conjuring" (Small Stone): The latest outing by the Dallas trio features five tracks of intensely sludgey doom rock. Prepare to be pulverized.
