It’s scary to think there was a point in time when Katatonia’s future looked bleak, and just before the holidays, the group revealed some great news. While nothing is confirmed, the band has recently shared a clue leading all of us to assume a new album will arrive this year.
09) Cannibal Corpse
Cannibal Corpse wrapped up 2019 by announcing it’s time to start working on their next album and asked fans to “keep supporting death metal in the new decade.” We can only hope that meant this new record will be released this year.
08) Paradise Lost
All you have to do is follow their Instagram, and you will see several studio updates.
Over the summer, guitarist Lenny Rutledge told us there will be a new Sanctuary album in 2020, and the working title is Transmutation. We can assume a few veteran Sanctuary fans will remain skeptical behind this new record as it will be a first without the late Warrel Dane. While Dane’s voice will remain unforgettable and irreplaceable, frontman Joseph Michael has given a new life to the group, and it’s well worth checking out.
Late last year, we caught up with Mark Jansen and he had the following to say about when Epica’s new album will arrive:
“For Epica, first of all, that new album. That’s going to be the main thing for the next year. It will probably be released around August, September 2020.”
