Rock/Metal Albums To Look Forward To In 2019


Slipknot amongst the many to release new albums this year!

As its the start of a new year, time to look ahead to some the upcoming metal and rock album releases that Mad About Rock is particularly looking forward to throughout the year...


Within Temptation new album 'Resist' is out 1st February 2019 and will mark the Dutch symphonic metallers seventh album. The band have already graced us with some massive and hard-hitting singles featuring brilliant guests with singer Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) and Anders Fridén (In Flames), leaving us very eager to hear more in what sounds like some of their best and most dynamic songs yet.




Children Of Bodom
 upcoming 'Hexed' album will be the melodic death metallers tenth album due for release March 8th via Nuclear Blast. New single 'Under Grass and Clover' is a good sign of what is to come, being extremely catchy and memorable.





Slipknot unleased the crushing new single 'All Out War' in 2018 and the upcoming sixth release is being worked on. The follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter, released in the aftermath of Paul Gray’s death and Joey Jordison’s departure. The band have announced a European tour this summer including headlining at Download Festival UK which means they must plan to treat us to some new material and that the album must be due before or around this,


Rammstein will unleash their seventh studio album expected in April. Only doing 1 UK sold out show in Milton Keynes Stadium - it's the year of Rammstein.


Dream Theater 
new album 'Distance Over Time' will be the progressive metallers 14th album and this marks their first release with new label InsideOutMusic /Sony Music which is due for release on February 22nd 2019. New hefty single 'Untethered Angel' gives us a taste of what to come in what is expected to be some of their most diverse material to date.





Alter Bridge haven't revealed much about their next release but they stated that a new release and follow up to 2016's 'The Last Hero' was due this year new.

Soilwork will unleash their 11th album titled 'Verkligheten' on January 11th 2019 via Nuclear Blast. They recently released new single 'Stålfågel' taken from this so give it a listen to tide you over although the wait is not long at all now.

In Flames

Megadeth

Amon Amarth

Anthrax

Avenged Sevenfold

Deftones

Evanescence

Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project.
