This week's new heavy metal releases include lots of aggression, someone asking you "why?" a bunch, tasty riffs with a grindcore aesthetic, and more! to the metals…

Belphegor – The Devils

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Black/death metal
Origin: Salzburg, Austria
Label: Nuclear Blast

After half a decade (and some additional delays) the latest from these black metal masters has finally arrived. Over the albums thirty-six-ish minutes the band frankly doesn't surprise you a lot, but it's hard to be upset since they're doing what they do well. Jeff has a review here.

Box – Cherry Blossoms at Night

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Progressive metal
Origin: Portland, Oregon
Label: Miserable Pyre Of Secrets

Buy now on Bandcamp

This is a weird one from a band of many hats. The album's two lead singles should be enough to tell you that you're in for a ride. "Succumb" is a grindy, grim track while "Cherry Blossoms At Night" is like a Leprous track with some 80's flair. The rest of the record is full of even more unexpected twists.

Chat PileGod's Country

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Experimental/noise
Origin: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Label: The Flenser

Gosh, this is a odd dark record. Instrumentation is fuzzed out, sludgy, and usually in bummer minor keys. This is then paired with a very pissed off, kinda-sorta spoken word vocal delivery. I don't know why I expected something fun from a band called "Chat Pile," but this is no fun. Max has a full review here.

Funeral Chic – Roman Candle

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Stoner metal/hardcore
Origin: Charlotte, North Carolina
Label: Prosthetic

Roman Candle is a record of bluesy grooves with lots and lots of grit. The band has strayed far from their grindcore sound, but there is still that nastiness that they had before. Also, the title track has a video with puppets. Can't be mad at that. Peep that below and peep J. Andrew's review while you're at it.

Krisiun – Mortem Solis

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Ijuí, Brazil
Label: Century Media

Pairing well with the new Belphegor, we have twelfth sonic ass kicking from Krisiun. Some shreddy moments here and there, but this really is all about the straight-ahead rhythmic bludgeoning.

Stick To Your Guns – Spectre

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From BELPHEGOR, KRISIUN, & More Out Today 7/29

Genre: Hardcore
Origin: Orange County, California
Label: Pure Noise

Wrapping this week with some anthemic hardcore to give y'all a boost into the weekend. Spectre will get you wind-milling and screaming "whoa-oh" whether you want to or not. This is a powerful one with enough catchy moments to keep you coming back.
