Top 10 Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Incorruptible - Iced Earth

I just listened to it for the first time and liked it very much. And immediately made a list - Top 10 Songs on Iced Earth's Incorruptible - Metal_Treasure

2 Gods of Violence - Kreator

Already came out and it's very good. - Metal_Treasure

3 TBA - Ne Obliviscaris

Update: it was titled Urn and was one of the best albums of 2017. Great job. - Metal_Treasure

4 TBA - Exodus
5 TBA - Judas Priest

New album already? I wasn't expecting this to happen until at least 2019-2020 since like Metallica and Iron Maiden they rarely make content now.

Update: as of June 2017, I think it's not gonna happen in 2017. Perhaps in 2018.
Update 2: Firepower came out in 2018 and it's very good! - Metal_Treasure

It's just good to see The Metal Gods still being around. They've been doing this since the 60s. - Metal_Treasure

Should be #1, I’m so excited for Firepower next year!

6 The Grinding Wheel - Overkill

This should be good, and probably better than Gods of Violence.

This Could Be Another Great Overkill Album After Albums Like The Electric Age And White Devil Armory
Those Show A Good Sign That This Could Be Great - christangrant

7 TBA - Arch Enemy

Can't wait to hear Jeff Loomis on the lead guitar (he's a new member). - Metal_Treasure

Feedback - a very good album. The album title is Will to Power - Metal_Treasure

8 TBA - Carcass
9 TBA - Coroner

Update: this album didn't happen in 2017... No signs to happen in 2018 either... - Metal_Treasure

Oh. My. God!
Coroner confirmed a new studio album in the works for 2017!
This would be their first album since 1993... after 24 years! Their 7th album.
Coroner are currently a cult band and the question is:
would it be the best metal comeback album ever? I hope so. And I can't wait. They are one of my favorite metal bands. They are so unconventional. - Metal_Treasure

10 Aathma - Persefone

This one will be a monster!

The Contenders

11 The Immortal Wars - Ex Deo

It's symphonic death metal - I like this band. It's very epic and the lyrics are about the Roman Empire. - Metal_Treasure

12 Machine Messiah - Sepultura

I doubt that this album is gonna be anything special knowing that Sepultura hasn't released anything decent since roots. - Metalmaniakkk

13 Conformicide - Havok
14 Healed by Metal - Grave Digger
15 TBA - Mastodon

Can't wait for the new Mastodon album, and with it being rumoured as a double disc just makes me even more excited. - Metalmaniakkk

16 Evocation II: Pantheon - Eluveitie

Upcoming album of Eluveitie. Although Fabienne Erni's vocals won't be good as Anna Murphy's (at least not to me), but their is still Chrigel Glanzmann and their music. - zxm

17 TBA - Behemoth

Update: in 2018 - Metal_Treasure

18 Atonement - Immolation
19 No Grave but the Sea - Alestorm
20 TBA - Ingested

Been talking with the guys about it. The artwork and tracking is complete. Just needs an album title! - Metalhead1997

21 Immortals - Firewind
22 Say10 - Marilyn Manson

Listen people, he isn't metal. Sorry. - Metal_Treasure

23 Prevail I - Kobra and the Lotus
24 Reaching Into Infinity - Dragonforce
25 Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten - Carach Angren

This album will be a masterpiece just like every other album they have ever made. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
