Genre: Technical Death Metal
Origin: Long Island, New York
Label: Profound Lore

But now on Amazon.com

Starting heavy this week. This album starts with death metal madness and doesn't let up. Guttural vocals, chaotic technical dissonance, and a sad robot on the cover. What more do you want in an album of this sort?

Cult of Luna – Years in a DayTHE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Post-metal
Origin: Umeå, Sweden
Label: Indie Recordings

But now from Indie Recordings

This is a collection of live recordings from 2013's Roadburn, 2016's Roadburn, and a normal headline set from La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris. This is a must have for fans of this band, and a pretty great starting point for those curious about the band. I've had a stream of the DVD for a while now, and it's a visual spectacle.

Ghost Bath – Starmourner THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Post-black metal
Origin: Minot, North Dakota
Label: Nuclear Blast

But now on Amazon.com

2015 saw Ghost Bath's sophomore release in Moonlover, and it popped up on plenty of best-of lists for good reason. Starmourner takes everything that worked there and amplifies it. Riffs are more melodic, darkness is darkness, blast beats are blastier, and the terrifying shrieks of Dennis Mikula are somehow more terrifying.

Incubus – 8THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Alt rock/nu metal
Origin: Calabasas, California
Label: Island

But now on Amazon.com

Incubus are one of those bands friends of mine LOVED back around the release of Make Yourself and Morning View, and their fondness has never waned despite tastes evolving. I still don't really get it, but here's the band's eighth record of melodic hard rock with some occasional nu metal heaviness. I don't think fans will get another "Nice To Know You," but it's not bad.

Les Discrets – PredateursTHE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Shoegaze/atmospheric black metal
Origin: France
Label: Prophecy

But now on Amazon.com

Les Discrets is one of the bands that successfully wandered from black metal to shoegaze greatness while keeping some grim edge. They're always been a favorite of mine in this scene, and this album is further proof of why. It's fucking beautiful and haunts me in the best way with it's melancholic memorable melodies.

Vampire – With Primeval ForceTHE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Death metal/thrash
Origin: Gothenburg, Sweden
Label: Century Media

But now on Amazon.com

Now for some more "real" metal for y'all. This band is part thrash, part death metal, and they're here to destroy you with their throwback vibes. I honestly thought this band was some late 80's OG death metal band that reunited after releasing an album in like 1989.

Uneven Structure – La Partition THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From GHOST BATH, INCUBUS, and More Out Today – 4/21

Genre: Progressive
Origin: Metz, France
Label: Long Branch Records

But now on Amazon.com

Ending this week with some prog wonderfulness. With (mostly) Tool-esque vocals, djent-ish rhythms, soaring post-metal melodies, and lengthy tracks, this band takes familiar elements and combines them into a unique experience. A stellar follow-up to their debut that dropped far too long ago.
