We’ve been stating it for some time, yet we’ll state it once more: It will be a monstrous year in overwhelming music. We shared the list of our Most Anticipated Albums of 2019 a short time back, and after that we asked you what record you’re simply dying to hear. You hit social media to vent your pain and impatience, and below are the best 5 vote-getters. Appeal to the dark lord that these collections come soon.
From 1995’s fundamental Adrenaline LP to 2016’s Gore, Sacramento’s favorite sons can lay claim to one of the most compelling, forward-thinking and kaleidoscopic discographies in heavy music. Gut caught all the mark calm yearning of frontman Chino Moreno’s passionate voice, however pushed forward the group’s proceeding with analyses with new aural textures and methodologies. What will the Deftones present on their ninth studio full-length? Moreno has said that guitarist Stephen Carpenter will be progressively associated with the songwriting this time, which makes us think — and trust — heavy grooves for days.
Following a too long break between collections, Rammstein will be treating fans to a new release in 2019 that guarantees a greater amount of what the German Neue Deutsche Härte aces do best: anthemic, pounding industrial metal that mixes sex, fire and dance beats into one hard-pounding package. Band individuals have kept sharp through endless visiting and their very own exploratory side tasks like Lindemann and Emigrate, however there’s an exceptional enchantment shared among the six unique players that can’t be duplicated outside of their 20-year-in addition chemistry. Search for the next as-yet-untitled release this Spring.
On the off chance that their last single “All Out Life” is any sign, Slipknot are tripling down on being the heaviest band they can be with their 2019 collection. It’s been five years since their cathartic .5: The Gray Chapter, however the group has apparently just gotten greater and more influential over that time, through steady touring and the proceeded with achievement of Knotfest. The song gives a look into what ideas have been percolating through the group in the five years since the record came out — and, thankfully, each member sounds pissed as hell.
It says a great deal regarding the rabid fan base of Babymetal that they beat out the likes of Slipknot and Rammstein in this poll. In the short lifetime of the band, three years can feel like forever, and fans have been clamoring to discover what’s next in the crazy lore the group has set up. A year ago, Babymetal teased a “new era” for the band, culminating with the singles “Distortion” and “Starlight.” Whether or not they’ll make good on the guarantee of a new “dark side,” 2019 will be a incredibly interesting year to witness for the Kawaii-metal clique.
How about we not kid ourselves here. There’s a ton of incredible music coming out in 2019 from bands new and old, however there’s no wgetting around the insane anticipation Tool’s forthcoming album has been building for the past 13 years. It’s almost painful to even imagine what the record will sound like, or theorize about what strange realms the prog-metal agitators will take our minds into. Indeed, only time will tell — see you on the other side.
