Weekly Injection


Posted by on March 26, 2013 at 10:43 am

After a killer slate last week this Tuesday brings things back down to Earth… volume-wise there is plenty to sort through, but the highlights are a little fewer and further between.

Kvelertak – MeirKvelertak Mier album art

Genre: Punk/Experimental
Origin: Stavanger, Norway
Label: Roadrunner

Buy Now on Amazon

Wasn't as enthused as I thought I'd be about this one, but it was hardly a total wash. Read my review here.

Sevendust – Black Out the SunSevendustBlackOutTheSun

Genre: Alt-Metal/Post-Grunge
Origin: Atlanta, Georgia
Label: 7Bros

Buy Now on Amazon

Review coming shortly on this one, but expect the usual from these veteran groove merchants. This isn't a band that throws their fans a lot of curveballs, which probably accounts for a good chunk of their longevity.

Suicidal Tendencies – 13614F1OCbcEL._SL500_AA280_

Genre: Crossover/Thrash
Origin: Venice, California
Label: Suicidal

I didn't land a copy of this in time to review it properly, but I commend Mike Muir for his unflagging ability to recruit exceptional musicians, Suicidal Tendencies these days basically consisting of Muir and whatever pickup band he happens to have rounded up at the time. In this case Dean Pleasants is the only member dating to pre-2008 and even he's only been in the band for 15 years now. Muir's lyrics on 13 are pretty much exclusively in party mode – don't expect social commentary on a level with "Institutionalized" or "You Can't Bring Me Down" – but the musicianship is fucking stellar.

Wormed – Exodromos363390

Genre: Technical Death Metal
Origin: Madrid, Spain
Label: Willowtip

Buy Now on Amazon

This is only Wormed's sophomore album, and amazingly it comes a full decade after their debut, Planisphaerium. Expect lyrics in the old school Voivod faux-tech mold, with mind-blowing riffs and positively sickening virtuosity on display throughout. Review should be up any minute now.
