I just saw that Rhapsody of Fire's coming out with a new one next year called 'The Eighth Mountain'. I've always loved these guys, although they do have some albums that don't do as much for me, so I'll look forward to this. I'm just now hearing 'Into the Legend' and I love it, so I hope this bodes well, despite the change in singers.

Also looking forward to new Dream Theater; I have fairly high hopes it'll be a big improvement over the last two albums, which were both mediocre (and way too long in one case).

Carcass are finally recording a follow-up to the fantastic "Surgical Steel". For the naysayers who thought that was too "safe", Bill Steer said in an interview awhile back that they're aiming to be more explorative this time, and this album will feature elements never before featured on a Carcass album. I'm very curious to see how it'll turn out, and what direction they'll end up taking things.

Symphonies of Sickness and Necroticism are both excellent. Hopefully, their new record will sound something similar to the aforementioned albums.

New track is excellent and Casey's vocals have gotten a bit more forceful now that they've gotten some relatively extensive touring experience under their belts. This sounds like a better version of Air.

Pre-orders are up too.

Glad to see this mentioned. So excited for this. Air was my favorite metal album of 2016 and I agree the vocals sound even better on this new track. Of the albums that already have a confirmed release date in 2019, this is the one I'm looking forward to most.

Looking forward to new albums by Sculptured, Nawaharjan and Eggs of Gomorrh.

Just listening to the new song by Smohalla (avant-garde post-black metal) from the upcoming album "Entitates"
and it is one of the weirdest things I ve heard in a while, and thats a very good thing!

There was a lot going on in that song. I didn't mind it, though. Keen to hear some more.

It's Brett on vocals, not Casey.

I am very much looking forward to this as well. I love Air. I also got to see them 3 times in 2018, which is sick. They crush it live when they have a good venu - it's basically 3 lead guitars so shit gets muddy a bit, but when it's clear it's amazing.

Hansi said on the BG forum that the orchestral album they've been working on for so long might be out in summer of 2019. That would be awesome!

Quote:
Time for a new update :D Most of your guesses are wrong, but some are at least wrong and right at the same moment :evil: We proceed very well. It more and more looks like a 2019 summer release. It depends a little bit on the record company‘s plans with it. We have not decided how to name the baby, yet. But Blind Guardian will be an essential part of that name in any way. The music is as much Metal as an orchestra and a Heavy Metal vocalist together can be metal. The album will be very intense, for sure. By now I have finished the singing of all songs. Eventually I go in and do a few minor adjustments. But that is more for my ego and will not cause any delays. So far we had 7 days of backing vocals with the choir company, but will go for 3 more. The big classical choirs have been done, already. Basically they are always done the same day, we are recording the complete orchestra in Prague. The choirs are done separately from the orchestra. Yet, we go back to Prague in the beginning of 2019 for the recordings of a last piece of music. No worries, this is instrumental. So, when we leave Prague the song is more or less ready for mixing. Yet, there are like two more possible recording sessions. Consider these to be extra missions. In total there will be 12 full songs on the album and two, or three musical interludes. How to release such an album? We worry when we get there. The instrumental version of such an album is a nice treat for sure, so would the demo versions be and of course, the final output can be treated in different ways. I doubt, that we will release different versions, with regard to different vocal performances. They are too close together in a lots of cases. On the other hand to explain the whole progression, it would make sense.
As for Guardian of the Netherworld ( which is called "Harvester of Souls" on my lyric sheet, as I realized after I told you the song is called "Guardian of the Netherworld"): every song which is already released on an album is an old song for us :P My bet for the old song - and it is none of these songs - would have been Mordred‘s Song or Bright Eyes. They both would do great. Some of you guys mentioned the mess in your heads: Welcome to the club! Why we went for this particular one? Well, believe it, or not. We started working on this song in a classical version, when André dreamt this song in a metal version. So he started working on the metal version, the other day. I believe the classical version contains a few extra parts, which are not in the metal version. All lyrics are new, apart from one prominent line in that song. We still work on the storyboard, but Markus Heitz did an amazing job. So much I can say, already. My Demons and Wizards appearances next year will not cause any delay for the orchestral release. I can do D&W songwriting while the other guys will do the mixing. After listening to the stuff so many times, it is better to rely on fresh ears, anyway. :D Mr. Producer has called me, time to make another small decision. It is all about baby steps ...

^ Great news! "Gods of Death" was really enjoyable, gonna have to go back to it. Can't believe it's been seven years but then again, they've always kept to their own timetable.

Exhorder are officially in the studio working with Duane Simoneaux, who produced the last few Crowbar albums. I'd been hoping that would be the case so as to keep the NOLA connection, and he knows how to dial in some heavy tones. On a related note, I'm optimistic for new Trouble, too.

Full-length debuts next year from Ossuarium (new song linked below,) Superstition, and Cerebral Rot with new albums from Solothus and after what will be a long four years, Magic Circle!

I'm super excited for Pounder to release a full length in 2019. Entitled "Uncivilized" and coming out February 22nd on Hell's Headbangers. They have released two EPs (the first one is incredible, the second one is still growing on me, but it's pretty decent as well). I expect a nice slab of classic heavy metal from these guys.

For a little taste, here's a link to the first EP which came out in 2017

Atheist are apparently aiming for a Spring 2019 release date for their new/final album. By the way, their facebook page (which has long been attacked by muslim and Christian morons who misinterpret it as an official page for atheism itself) was apparently hacked by some Islamic troll who changed the band's name to Ahmed Suliaman...months and months later it still says that and hasn't been changed back :lol:. Not sure why they've not even bothered to change it, that's probably not a good sign...

I've always speculated that their next album will be their last just by the way that they're very quiet and it seems like they're busting their butts getting it out, and I reckon they'll have nothing left in them to continue. Despite the mixed press, I liked Jupiter and I'm hoping the same for the upcoming one.

Yeah, Kelly actually confirmed that it'll be their last album in an interview a year or so ago...I personally liked Jupiter overall but the basswork on that album bothers me. It's just disgusting to hear Atheist without a proper bassist, it's such a huge part of their sound and yet feels so stiff and unimaginative there, the few moments it actually stands out feel forced and random...the album would've improved tenfold if Tony Choy had remained long enough to record his stuff. Unfortunately it looks like he's quit the band once again (again right before recording an album) but Kelly said back in June that there is "great news coming" so hopefully they'll actually hire someone. My personal wish would be Henrik Drake :love:!

From the band: "We have decided that the new album will be called Free Speech.
Fantasy about anal sex, murders, violence and the supernatural,
all with black humor and insults"

I witnessed their last concert few years ago and thought that they are not active anymore, good that I was wrong.

Yes they did. It had a couple incredible songs (some of their all-time best, e.g. Two Sacred Oaks, One Blood and One Bone) but was a bit uneven in some respects as well. No matter what, this fits the definition of "most anticipated" for me. Easily a legendary-tier band.

Post subject:  Re: Most anticipated albums of 2019

Nucleus by Anthem.

Not only are Anthem one of my absolute favorite Metal bands but they are sticking with Yukio Morikawa on vocals, which is my preferred vocalist in the band. It makes sense to do this album as Yukio is much better in English pronunciation than Eizo and the last time the band released an all English album it did relatively well. I only have one issue with the album prospect though, it is predominantly filled with songs from the bands more recent days.

I have tried the last few years to really give the second era of Anthem a chance, since the bands reforming in 2001 until this date, they have released 9 albums and there is only one album that I like, which is Black Empire. This album has songs from Absolute World and Eternal Warrior a lot but I just cannot get into these albums very much.

Anthem released the track Black Empire for pre-release hype I guess but that was a bad move. Not only does Yukio sound weird singing a song fit more for Eizo's voice but it went from an amazing track to what sounds like just another song. I guess I will reserve judgement to when its released.

I completely understand you, I still dont know what to think about that album, but I enjoyed it to a certain extent, and I liked
the twisted perverse lyrics.

Another thing to look forward to is "Masque" by irish death/black metallers Vircolac. Their last EP was very very solid, even now
when listening to Charonic Journey I stand up from the computer with clenched fist and goosebumps :)
Single is already out: https://darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com/album/masque

Also very curious about upcoming EP by Eggs of Gomorrh. I am quite reserved about war metal, but this band has excellent, kind of "expensive" sound, and they remind me of Impetuous Ritual. Rot Prophet is definitely on of the most remarkable recent releases of the genre, and I am just wondering how sick they must be live!

They have to at some point, they're contractually obliged to

Though I suppose they could get out of it by doing a "The Very Best Of Tool" with like one unreleased song
