The Top Ten

1 Metallica Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.

Metallica's previous album hardwired to self-destruct was actually a very good album, however in 2019, I am hoping Metallica can make another good album again! Heck it maybe even better than master of puppets and ride the lightning in my opinion! Can't wait for Metallica's new album in 2019 in my opinion! - UltraLunalaX

No way, their last album sucked and they haven't released a good album since...And Justice for All. Megadeth rules! Metallica sucks!

Metallica is the surprise band, no one was excited for a new Metallica album then they put out two good albums that got back to a more thrashy sound with Death Magnetic in 2008 and Hardwired...To Self-Destruct in 2016. A new album from them can be very interesting - germshep24

Their previous album was very good and I hope for more of that - Metal_Treasure

I wonder how long the closing track on a new Iron Maiden album would be. What about half an hour? - Alkadikce

Yes! Iron maiden does need to release a good album! Especially after that stupid grammie award in 2018 for rock N roll hall of fame, when really iron maiden should've won by now, for a change! - UltraLunalaX

3 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

Hopefully soon... - HenryMan73

I can still hope for this to happen, especially since this has been going on for years and they still just won't make a new album! I hope they can keep their promise to make a new album this time in my opinion! - UltraLunalaX

It has been confirmed by the man MJK (Maynard James Keenan) himself. Tool's 5th LP will be released on August 30th, 2019, practically 13 years after 2006's 10,000 Days. - CaptDeadeye

Never going to happen, but we can still hope... - tgbhj

It's been 4 years since blind guardian's latest album beyond the red mirror in 2015 and now I am hoping if they can make another album that might just as well be as addicting as beyond the red mirror! - UltraLunalaX

It's time for a new album, it's been 4 years since their last album in 2015. I need some new stuff to listen to. - Metal_Treasure

Is this a Metal_Treasure list, shouldn't this be number one lol - germshep24

5 Ne Obliviscaris Ne Obliviscaris Ne Obliviscaris (Latin for "forget not") are an extreme progressive metal band from Melbourne, Australia, formed in 2003.

I just want more songs by them. They are my actual #1 but I put them at #4 because they are pretty underground and I don't expect many people to be interested in their extreme metal music. - Metal_Treasure

You should have put it number one in the end it is your list, if people disagree they'll vote and slowly get their favorite to the top - germshep24

I kind of gave up hope for a while, but the leak of "Metamorphosis" makes me hopeful for more music in that style and not generic pop songs like right there, but we'll see. - DaWyteNight

10 Boyz II Men Boyz II Men Boyz II Men is an American R&B vocal group, best known for emotional ballads and a cappella harmonies.

I know a lot of people don't like Flo Rida, and I might get some hate for adding him here, but I'm not saying he is a great rapper like Travis Scott and Lil Uzi fans, I just have always liked his music. He needs to make a return to his first two albums, because his stuff after that hasn't been as good. Either way, his music always puts a smile on my face and is always nice to hear when there is so much crap on the radio. - DaWyteNight

He's about to shake up the music industry

In my opinion, most of their songs aren't very good. I like a few (Believer, Demons, and Who We Are to name a few), but another album would be unwelcome in my eyes. Not to mention a recent album release. - Cyri

Origins sucked - HenryMan73

Origins isn't that good in my opinion. And this is coming from someone who likes Imagine Dragons. - Userguy44

They just released Origins. - Userguy44

I would honestly like a break from Kendrick Lamar so other better rappers have a chance to shine. I know he didn't release an album in 2018, but Black Panther still made him very overrated. - DaWyteNight
