20) Times of Grace
The new Times of Grace album was rumored to be released by the end of last year. Therefore, it’s bound to happen in 2020.
19) Dead Cross
Just look at the updates. Dead Cross’ sophomore album is happening!
18) King Diamond
King Diamond’s first album in thirteen years, The Institute will arrive this year. We don’t know exactly when, but it will happen. We already heard the new song “Masquerade of Madness,” and there have been promises on top of the Mercyful Fate reunion.
We knew since August that Belphegor would release a new album this year. And by October, these Austrian blackened death metal masters have announced via Facebook; their upcoming untitled record will be released in June:
Back in November, Deftones supplied two essential updates. The first being, they’ve almost finished working on their new album. And the second, they’re one of the headliners for Hellfest. With these two details, we can only predict the follow-up to 2016’s Gore will be released sometime before the festival, which kicks off in June.
