Year after year, we've been waiting for long-promised new albums from Tool and Rammstein. And we're sick of it, so with all hopes, this will be the last time those two bands make our Anticipated Albums list for a while — unless they put out albums in back-to-back years. That'd be awesome!

Even if another year passes without an album from either band, it's going to be a strong one with some of rock and metal's biggest acts working on new records for 2019. Slipknot fans will get the chance to scratch a five year itch for new music and there's two albums from thrash's Big 4 on the way as well.

Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb of God, Bring Me the Horizon, Korn, Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones and more are all expected to deliver new recordings in 2019, ensuring it will be another big year.
