2 TBA - Possessed

This will be their first album in 32 years. That's so crazy! - Aragorn98

That's gonna be REALLY interesting! Nobody expected that...Thanks, christangrant. - Metal_Treasure

Yes the same posssesed that made Seven Churches is supposedly going to make their 3rd studio album this year - christangrant

3 TBA - Tool

This better be legit. Stop toying with my heart Tool and give me the new album already! - cjWriter1997

Finally, Maynard James Keenan decided to stop being a lazy cuck.

Drummer Danny Carey assured journalists it would "definitely" be out this year, hopefully by mid-2018. We'll see :)
Their previous album (10,000 Days) came out in 2006. Was long ago... - Metal_Treasure

4 Automata - Between the Buried and Me

New song Condemned to the Gallows just came out. March 9th is the release date! I'm so pumped for this!
EDIT: Just found out it's going to be a double album with first part releasing March and the second part to be released sometime this summer. So even more hype! - cjWriter1997

Thanks, cjWriter1997 - this goes to my remix, very high. Also, I noticed that at least 5 anticipated albums will come out on March 9th... Is this some magical date?
I immediately gave a listen to Condemned to the Gallows and I liked it (this is the type of music I currently like - proggy with harsh vocals) - Metal_Treasure

5 TBA - Amon Amarth
6 What Happens Next - Joe Satriani

I already heard 2 songs: awesome! - Metal_Treasure

7 TBA - Nile
8 TBA - Megadeth

This album will feature a new drummer - Metal_Treasure

9 TBA - Children of Bodom
10 Year of the Tiger - Myles Kennedy

Release Date: March 9 - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 TBA - Rammstein

My prediction: the album will be certified platinum in Germany before its official release, on preorders alone. When the most popular band of an entire country releases new music after 9 years, this is something huge.
Even all of their live albums and best ofs topped the charts. Imagine what a full blown new studio album will do. - Martin_Canine

12 TBA - Slayer

Update: they announced they break up in 2018... - Metal_Treasure

My heart will really will... - Ananya

Kerry King assured metalheads there would be a new album in 2018. I believe it's true because Slayer have a wealth of material left from the sessions for their last record, Repentless.
"There are six or eight songs that are recorded - some with vocals, some with leads, but all with keeper guitar, drums and bass," said King.
"So when those songs get finished lyrically, if the lyrics don't change the songs, they'll be ready to be on the next record. So we already have more than half a record complete, if those songs make it. This is actually the most prepared we've ever been for the next record in our history; there's no reason to not do more work, because it's already more than halfway done. Just write four or five new songs, and give the others some attention, and we'll be good to go." - Metal_Treasure

13 TBA - Behemoth
14 Trident Wolf Eclipse - Watain
15 TBA - Halestorm
16 Mania - Fall Out Boy
17 Rivalen Und Rebellen - Frei. Wild
18 Vale - Black Veil Brides

THEY SUCK! - Mikbiter15

19 Die Unendlichkeit - Tocotronic
20 Sign of the Dragonhead - Leaves' Eyes
21 Puncturing the Grotesque - Autopsy
22 TBA - Ghost
23 TBA - Disentomb
24 Grimmest Hits - Black Label Society
25 TBA - Killswitch Engage
26 Avatar Country - Avatar
27 TBA - Alice In Chains
28 Hadeon - Pestilence

Release Date: March 9 - Metal_Treasure

29 Ember - Breaking Benjamin

With the hard hitting sound of Red Cold River, and the absolutely beautiful layering of Feed the Wolf, I think this album could very well be a contender for number one on this list.
