Weekly Injection


Posted by on November 3, 2017 at 10:44 am

This editions features several long-awaited returns, gore, politics, and more! To the metals…

Annihilator – For The Demented 

Genre: Thrash
Origin: Ottawa, Canada
Label: Neverland/Silver Lining

Buy now on Amazon.com

Jeff Waters and his gang have returned to thrash through your brain once more. As always, this album is a guitar shredding masterclass. It even features a ballad that (seemingly) is about eating people. It's pretty much everything you'd want from Annihilator. Dillon reviews the record here.

Anti-Flag – American Fall 

Genre: Punk
Origin: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Label: Spinefarm

Buy now on Amazon.com

Not technically a metal act, but I saw them listed on the Aftershock lineup so, the crossover appeal is there, I guess? Anyway, this is poppy punk that's politically charged and catchy as fuck. This is the follow-up to American Spring, and one can only assume that this completes their seasons suite of records.

Cannibal Corpse – Red Before Black 

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Tampa, Florida
Label: Metal Blade

Buy now on Amazon.com

These guys were like a week off from being the perfect Halloween soundtrack. This album is bloody, gross, violent, aggressive, and everything else you'd want form the death metal masters. Features jaunty tunes like "Heads Shoveled Off," "Shedding My Human Skin," and "Scavenger Consuming Death." Michael has a full review here.

Converge – The Dusk In Us 

Genre: Metalcore/hardcore
Origin: Massachusetts
Label: Epitaph/Deathwish

Buy now on Amazon.com

Converge's first album in five years is sure to please. The balance of hardcore chaos, sludgy moments, and melody is right were it needs to be. It's a Converge record, so I feel like you know what you're in for. Just know, Kurt Ballou and the gang have done it again. Kevin agrees, check out his review here.

Moonspell – 1755 

Genre: Gothic metal
Origin: Brandoa, Portugal
Label: Napalm

Buy now on Amazon.com

Have any of the albums this week been epic enough for you? No? Well, then look no further than this Moonspell record. Soaring synths and choirs contrasting with the gruff vocals and driving metal will likely scratch that itch. You'll also get a lesson in Portuguese while you're at it. Nicholas has a full review here.

N.A.M.E. – You Are Mostly Nowhere 

Genre: Experimental grindcore/death metal
Origin: Danville, California
Label: self

Buy now on Amazon.com

After seven years of writing, touring, and debauchery, the New Approach to Matyrs Expressions or NAME, have finally returned. And I've been eagerly awaiting this return. You Are Mostly Nowhere is an expression of experimentation, aggression, angst, and an inability to hold still. They're still somewhere between The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Ocean, but they're become a more defined version of their own animal on this record.

Zao – Pyrrhic Victory

Genre: Metalcore
Origin: Parkersburg, West Virginia
Label: Observer Recordings

Buy now on Amazon.com

Last year Zao dropped The Well-Intentioned Virus, which was their first full-length album in quite some time. The band isn't wasting time and released this EP which, very much, feels like a micro-sequel to that record. Stream the whole thing here, and hope it won't have to hold you over for another seven years.
