Hi, what are you looking for?



No review found! Insert a valid review ID.

Today was moving day here in the WEEKLY INJECTION outpost. I've got myself a lovely little view of a brand new corner of a storage room and I can almost hear Rob's hearbeat from here. Almost…

To the metals…

A.M.S.G. – Anti-Cosmic TyrannyAMSG-Anti-Cosmic-Tyranny-e1371818785879

Genre: Black Metal
Origin: Edmonton, Canada
Label: Profound Lore

A.M.S.G.  or Ad Majorem Satanae Gloriam or "For The Greater Glory of Satan" are a Satan loving black metal band from Canada fronted by Angelfukk Witchhammer. I don't really feel like I need to say more more than that, because you now know exactly what this band will sound like.

Up until this week's Weekly Injection, I had the privilege of not knowing that this band existed. I can't unknow them now. Anyway, this band is what Hot Topic probably blares these days. Nasally clean vocals, unnecessary electronic skipping, Jesus stuff.

Why does this band get shit on exactly? I mean, they use a lot of the same tropes that I gave Blessthefall shit for, but I think Born of Osiris make it work in their prog metal setting. There is quite a bit of electronic influence on this record (as the song below will demonstrate), so get your twerking shoes on!

Thrash is just in again isn't it? Guitar acrobatics, fast playing, etc. These guys seem to add subtle melody and death metal bits where their contemporaries don't, so that is a way they are not just another (insert modern thrash band here).

Fleshgod Apocalypse – LabyrinthFleshgod-Apocalypse-Labyrinth-620x620

Genre: Symphonic Death Metal
Origin: Rome, Italy
Label: Nuclear Blast

I imagine that Fleshgod Apocalypse are what people wish Dimmu Borgir sounded like. There are quite a few similarities, but Fleshgod don't seem so cheeseball doing it. Really cool, and really REALLY epic.

Horseback – A Plague Of Knowing a3445124902_10

Genre: Psychedelic Stoner

Completest collector fans of Horseback will want this. It contains not one, not two, but three discs of rarities, demos and single splits. If you are unfamiliar with the band, like I was, this is actually a pretty great starting point to get into their unique music.

O'Brother – Disillusion 943073_619603078051425_204998737_n

O'Brother are a great band I don't think enough people know about. They are like if Thrice never bothered with their quasi-screamo past, but instead got high and listened to Isis. Sure, they may not warrant the "Metal" label, but they are worth your time and attention. Great live band, by the way.

Speaking of getting high and listening to post metal bands, the debut of Shakhtyor is great lurching instrumental metal that sounds like if Jucifer dropped the microphone and enlisted a guitarist. Top-notch feedback solos here.

Vasaeleth – All Uproarious Darkness1044808_592414717459210_1364111859_n

Genre: Death Metal
Origin: Georgia/Colorado

Another profoundly Profound Lore release. This two-man death metal outfit take these five tracks on All Uproarious Darkness to write an homage to all things death metal. They aren't reinventing anything here, but they are doing what's been done well.

You all know Watain by now. They like three things: Satan, blood, and bike rides. The Wild Hunt offers their most adventurous release yet and it has already proved to be a decisive album. Check out Jeremy's full review here and my chat with frontman Erik Danielsson here.
