This week's new heavy metal releases include some atypical doom offerings, thrash madness, and more! To the metals…

Chrome Waves – Earth Will Shed Its Skin

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Post-black metal/shoegaze
Origin: Chicago, Illinois
Label: M-Theory

Buy now from Bandcamp

Starting this week's part off with some echo-y, blackened jams. After At least an EP of material every year since 2019, it's great to hear a band both this consistent and this prolific. Fans of Deafheaven, Nothing, and let's say Hum should be all over this.

Cradle Of Filth – Trouble And Their Double Lives

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Extreme metal
Origin: Suffolk, England
Label: Napalm

Buy now from Bandcamp

Dani Filth and his hoard are dropping their first live album in two decades here. This includes a career spanning collection of tracks like "Nymphetamine (Fix)," "Lustmord and Wargasm (The Lick of Carnivorous Winds)" and lots of other songs that don't have parentheticals. This also includes two new songs.

Crown The Empire – Dogma

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Metalcore
Origin: Dallas, Texas
Label: Rise

Buy now from Amazon

Dogma is Crown The Empire's first album in four years and it sees their band at their biggest. Choruses are huge and the walls of sound are massive. This is the first with their shiny new drummer Jeeves Avalos who graduated from touring drummer.

Elvenking – Reader Of The Runes – Rapture

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Power/folk metal
Origin: Sacile, Italy
Label: AFM

Buy now from Amazon

Here we have another band back after four years with a huge sounding record. These Italians are bringing the folk fury though. Weirdly a new drummer as well, and a new guitarist that goes by "HeadMatt." Hell yeah.

Enforced – War Remains

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Crossover/thrash
Origin: Richmond, Virginia
Label: Century Media

Buy now via Bandcamp

There is a lot of great modern thrash out here right now, and Enforced are one of the bands at the top of the heap. No bullshit here. Just frantic rhythms, shredding guitars, and pit inducing aggression. Max's give you the lowdown here.

Fires In The Distance – Air Not Meant For Us

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Melodic death metal/doom
Origin: Newington, Connecticut
Label: Prosthetic

Buy now Bandcamp

Every track on this record is an epic chapter worth every second of their lengthy run-time. So many mood shifts and sections to get lost in. A swell time that perfectly balances doom heft and melodic death metal groove. Jordan has a full review here.

Lunar Chamber – Shambhallic Vibrations

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Technical death metal
Origin: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Label: 20 Buck Spin

Buy now Bandcamp

With members sporting monikers like "Timeworn Nexus" and "They, Who May Not Be Perceived," you know you're in for a wild ride. Shambhallic Vibrations certainly delivers on that promise. The five tracks traverse Gorguts-esque dissonant death metal, Cynic mood, and this is all with technicality that's sure to impress.

Spotlights – Alchemy For The Dead 

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From ENFORCED, CRADLE OF FILTH & More Out Today 4/28

Genre: Doomgaze/experimental
Origin: New York
Label: Ipecac

Buy now on Bandcamp

Wrapping this week with some doomy weirdness. These soon to be Mr. Bungle tour-mates are heavy, spacy, and really interesting. The juxtaposition between them and the current/retro Bungle thrash might be weird, but could be cool too. This record is cool at least.
