This week, Coheed And Cambria test the waters with unusually fresh new sounds, and there's some exciting new music coming from different corners of the globe.
As with last week, the better known acts are at the top, so make sure you scroll down to hear what lesser-known artists are up to.
What tracks do you like? Let us know in the comments and we'll take note to look out for their updates in the future.
Coheed And Cambria "Number City"
Coheed always sound creative and fresh, but this sounds like something different even for them - like some kind of future-pop vision. What do you think?
Eels "Wonderful, Glorious" (FULL ALBUM)
Hear the new Eels album in its entirety. The first song alone has enough odd production to keep you hooked throughout.
Orianthi "Heaven In This Hell"
Hard-rocking goddess Orianthi plays her single "Frozen" live on TV before the album "Heaven In This Hell" launches on March 12. Look out for some kick-a-s shredding around 2:40.
Bada-s Brazilian metallers Slasher present a relentless track from their second album "Katharsis", due in mid-2013.
Threshold "Staring At The Sun"
This progressive metal band from Britain asked their fans to come up with an idea for their video - this is the winning entry.
5th Sonic Brigade "Teacher"
Rock with a progressive twist from Sweden. This snippet is from their next single, due February 20.
My Dying Bride "Poorest Waltz"
Gloomy metal and passionate singing from the UK. Look out for their upcoming EP "The Manuscript" which is being developed as we speak.
