Last year; Philly Rock Radio set out to join the likes of many of Music's Media Outlets in putting out our Top Album List of the year. As is always the case, every list that is generated is a matter of opinion and this was no different. The 2018 version was a success; so we once again have joined the party and are rolling out our Top 20 Hard Rock/Heavy Metal albums of 2019.
Those of you that follow us know that we do not always follow the mainstream with our tastes and opinions. With that being said we think that we have developed the ultimate fistful of metal albums for 2019. Let's get right to the action beginning with five albums that just missed the cut but do deserve honorable mentions:
24) "The Wings of War"- Overkill
23) "The Nothing"- Korn
22) "Fear Inoculum"- Tool
21) "Rewind, Replay, Rebound"- Volbeat
