Iron Maiden released a new studio album every year from 1980 to 1984. Bruce Dickinson released a new studio album every year from 1996 to 1998. Rush released new studio albums every year from 1974 to 1978, and 1980 to 1982, including two separate studio albums in 1975. I’m sure there are plenty of other examples.
It was the norm in the 60s and 70s. Led Zeppelin's first four albums came out in '69, '69, '70, and '71.

The Beatles never missed a year. "Revolver", "Rubber Soul", "Sgt Pepper", "The White Album", "Abbey Road", and "Let It Be" were all in consecutive years.

Black Sabbath released albums in '70, '71, '72, and '73. Then again in '75 and '76, and again in '80 and '81.

It's funny how we now take it for granted that every band needs anywhere from two to five years to write and record a decent album. It all depends on the band, and how they go about their business, but music used to come out even faster than it does now.

It's interesting how that's changed.
Though those albums were also often 35 - 45 minutes... whereas an album today may well be 70 minutes to 2 hours or more.
