Your nine horsemen of the apocalypse of metal have confirmed the exciting news that they have returned to the studio and are working on new material to follow the album, We Are Not Your Kind, which debuted at number 1 on the US Billboard 200, and was dubbed by Rolling Stone as the best metal album of 2019. Percussionist, M.Shawn 'Clown' Crahan confirmed that they are making "God music" and compared the new music to their second album, Iowa. While no official release date has been stated, and the album is still untitled, the Knotfest Roadshow announcement suggests that it may arrive this year.
For the rest, Killswitch Engage, Fever333 and Code Orange have all released new music this last year, Killswitch Engage released an EP entitled, Atonement II: B-Sides, featuring six previously unreleased songs taken from the recording sessions of Atonement. Fever333 released their second EP titled, Wrong Generation, an expertly crafted cross-genre album, and Code Orange released their fourth studio album, Underneath, with a heavier emphasis on industrial and electronic elements than their previous work.
