Weekly Injection

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE CONTORTIONIST, SLASH, and More Out Today – 9/16

Oh man. This week has so much good shit. Too much really. I just didn't have enough time, will, or stamina to talk about all the good shit. This edition still includes the (second?) biggest death metal band of all time, an album that you want to have Axl Rose on it that doesn't, prog, death metal, black metal and more (yes, there's even more!)! To the metals…

Antropomorphia – Rites Ov Perversion 916AydECsjL._SL1500_

Genre: Death Metal
Origin: Tilburg, Netherlands
Label: Metal Blade

Buy now on Amazon.com

This is Death metal for those that like their death metal with a side of death metal. Their second album since their reunion, comes with more gore, more crushing riffs, and more topless women on the cover than ever before.

Cannibal Corpse – A Skeletal Domain Cannibal-Corpse-Skeletal-Domain

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

Buy now on Amazon.com

Does this album need any description? It's Cannibal Corpse. Expect shredding of guitars and bodies. Sidenote: How did it take them twenty-six years to have a song called "Icepick Lobotomy"?

This is the band's first record with Last Chance To Reason vocalist Michael Lessard, and may be their finest. I dug the record a lot, but apparently did for the wrong reasons according to our faithful reader's comments. Oh well, give a shit about what I said or not, this album is fantastic for many reasons.

 

 

Iron Reagan – Tyranny of Will 61sOTtvaiFL

Genre: Crossover
Origin: Richmond, Virginia
Label: Relapse

Buy now on Amazon.com

This side-project of various artists (Including Municipal Waste, ex-Darkest Hour, and more) is a great homage to those crossover artist that came before them. Fans of DRIStormtroopers of Death, and the likes should give these guys a go. And of course, if you dig Municipal Waste, you'll enjoy a few of the guys in a slightly different world than you're used to.

 

 

Myrkur – Myrkur EP 6122CZsi8LL

Genre: Atmospheric black metal
Origin: Denmark
Label: Relapse

Buy now on Amazon.com

This one-woman black metal act is part fury, part beauty, and all awesome. Fans of Neige projects (The Alcest guy), specifically Amesoeurs, should hear this.

Noctem – Exilium 61I2I+xFFnL

Genre: Symphonic black/death metal
Origin: Valencia, Spain
Label: Prosthetic

Buy now on Amazon.com

This is a pretty great band that I am always pleased to see come through with a new record. They take death metal brutality and mix it with black metal grimness, in a way that Behemoth might, but then they add some symphonic goodness to it. The result isn't quite like Fleshgod Apocalypse, but it's close.

Philm – Fire From the Evening Sun philmfirefromtheveningcd

Genre: Experimental metal
Origin: Los Angeles
Label: UDR

Buy now on Amazon.com

While I'm sure the paycheck isn't as good as with his previous gig, Dave Lombardo's various other projects have to be much more creatively fulfilling. This is weird, all over the place metal that incorprates elements of prog, black metal, thrash, death metal, and more. There has already been so much growth for the band since their first. This band now sounds much more like a band than a one-off side thing.

 

 

The Pineapple Thief – Magnolia 51V1FBfBb3L

Genre: Progressive
Origin: Somerset, England
Label: Kscope

Buy now on Amazon.com

While not technically a metal band, this band has a lot of the same love of exploration of emotion with occasional heaviness that Porcupine Tree has, or Opeth has had lately. They have a rather extensive back-catalog, so if you are just finding them through this, go back and enjoy it all.

 

 

Slash – World on Fire 91lOXlBcuVL._SL1500_

Genre: Rock
Origin: Los Angeles, California
Label: Dik Hayd

Buy now on Amazon.com

The guy with the top hat from Guns n Roses that also played in Velvet Revolver has a new album that sounds a lot like the latter. Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) sounds nothing like Scott Weiland, but musically this one is on par with "Slither" and the rest of that first record. Semi-related: I've always loved that Slash's band is "Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators." The Conspirators consist of two guys. The name of this outfit might as well just name them individually too, or would THAT be too long of a title?
