Hi, what are you looking for?

Weekly Injection


Happy Cartoonist Day! Draw yourselves slaying something to celebrate! On to business. This edition includes indie/stoner darlings, lots of Satan, a terrible reference to an old TV show and more! To the metals…

Coliseum – Anxiety's Kiss61xIGTHYQSL

Genre: Hardcore/Stoner
Origin: Louisville, Kentucky
Label: Deathwish

Buy now on

Always difficult to pin down Coliseum have returned with yet another collection of groovy, fuzzy tracks that walk the line between stoner gems and indie crossover awesomeness. I'm digging the addition of some 80's New Wave essence to the band's already interesting sound.


Kamelot – Haven81Fwi6UKzwL._SL1500_

Genre: Progressive power metal
Origin: Tampa, Florida
Label: Napalm

Buy now on

One of America's longest running, and strongest, power metal collective is getting people pumped for epic battles once again. They've got some great guest with them on this record too. Charlotte Wessels of Delain and Alissa White-Gluz Arch Enemy/ex-The Agonist both make vocal appearances, and Troy Donockley of Nightwish's famed Uileann pipes section even makes an appearance.


Korpiklaani – NoitaA1L4g0E3c-L._SL1500_

Genre: Folk metal
Origin: Lahti, Finland
Label: Nuclear Blast

Buy now on

Korpiklaani are still very much being Korpiklaani. Folky metal with accordion, violin, and hurdy gurdy galore! Not huge step in artistic growth from their last record, but folk music doesn't really need to progress much. All that matters is that the spirit of generations past is present, and this band is entrenched in classic folk.


Meek is Murder – Onward / Into the Sunonward-small

Genre: Hardcore
Origin: Brooklyn, New York
Label: Rising Pulse

Buy now on

Meek is Murder has a new EP out that has been coupled with an older one and both of them will kick your ass. Chaotic, solid, noisy, and pretty great. (Note: Frank doesn't weigh in on what I talk about on here, so this was included under my own choosing. Just for full discretion or whatever)


Satan's Wrath – Die Evil61EP1YFSK-L

Genre: Black metal
Origin: Greece
Label: Metal Blade

Buy now on

In the mood for some lo-fi (by design, I'm presuming) black metal? Then get up on this. Thrashy throughout, proggy at times, and a little bluesy if you peel back some of the guitar noodling. These guys also appear to be a little fascinated with Satan and the number six.


Sigh – Graveward91ReRsM9rCL._SL1500_

Genre: Avant-garde black metal
Origin: Tokyo, Japan
Label: Candlelight

Buy now on

Let's get weird. Sigh have returned with some avant blackened madness. Lots of guests too. Friends in tow range from members of DragonForce and Trivium to Rotting Christ and Shining. So really, it's all the usual unusual-ness. I'll have a full review on here at some point.


Six Feet Under – Crypt of the Devil81dBbv72aML._SL1000_

Genre: Death/Groove metal
Origin: Tampa, Floria
Label: Metal Blade

Buy now on

In an amazing turn of events, ten years after the show concluded Six Feet Under has returned following the Fisher family on their path through the afterlife. I'm a bit surprised that they chose to release the season in audio form but…Hold on. I'm being told this has nothing to do with the acclaimed HBO television program. It is instead another batch of grimy death metal tracks from Chris Barnes and friends.
