I've really been dropping the ball on following new releases... Only ones I can immediately think of are Transcendence and Meshuggah's "The Violent Sleep of Reason", as I've been pretty much blown away by both of them.

Transcendence by DTP, The Violent Sleep of Reason by Meshuggah and Act V by The Dear Hunter for sure, as well as Opeth's Sorceress. Haven't picked up the new Anaal Nathrakh album yet (I keep forgetting) and I assume that might end up on a possible favorites list too. Same goes for the new Venetian Snares album.
Also enjoyed Neurosis's Fires within Fires quite a bit...much more so than their last one.
