The year of 2019 will be a historic one for heavy metal and the month of August in particular. Rammstein have already released their long-promised new album and Slipknot and Tool are making good on their vows as well, marking some of the biggest releases over the last decade.

There's still plenty of rock and metal muscle to flex as the year rolls on and even 2020 is already shaping up to be a solid year.
