On their second album the supergroup of past and present members of Avantasia, Phantom Elite, and Visions Of Atlantis are soaring to new heights. They're covering some 80s classics and offering some solid originals. Some of the covers they're taking on are "Poison" by Alice Cooper, "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" by Journey, "Alone" by Heart and more.

No Terror In The Bang – Heal

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From ALLUVIAL, ESCUELA GRIND & More Out 1/6-1/12

Genre: Cinematic/progressive metal
Origin: Rouen, France
Label: Klonosphere

Buy now on Bandcamp

I feel like French metal gets weird, and we don't talk about that enough. No Terror In The Bang combines djent, avant-garde metal, and symphonic metal into a unique blend that I could really only compare to Stolen Babies, but if they were way angrier. There's a lot going on here and if you're into wildly diverse albums, get on this.

Ryujin – Ryujin

Genre: Melodic death/power metal
Origin: Hokkaido, Japan
Label: Napalm

Wrapping this week with an epic one. The band formerly know as Gyze are getting a lot of help from Trivium's Matt Heafy as he guests on a few songs and now managers the band with their mighty "samurai metal." This one is a shreddy good time that's catchy as hell.
