In a world where Nu Metal nostalgia is becoming more rampant, a band like Ded is rearing its head at the right time. There are some modern flairs, but for the most part they are just combining Mudvayne, Linkin Park, Flaw, and others into a groove based, melodic, glitch sound infused….thing.

I feel like my inclusion of this record this week will only appeal to a handful of readers, the rest of you will cry "I thought it was METAL Injection." Anyway, Maria Brink and her band on masked randos are back with a new record of the metalcore/hard rock sound they do very well. I really, really enjoy the cover of "In The Air Tonight" (stream below), but why do a lyric video? Everyone knows ALL the words to that song. The little of the rest of the record I've heard will probably appeal to fans.

Want some metal? Here you go. Decrepit Birth play all the notes, with all the heaviness a band could muster on this album. Low-tuned, technical as fuck, and guttural. Everything you've ever wanted in your tech death.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross took a break from making soundtracks for Oscar bait to make a few Nine Inch Nails songs. Neat! This is the second of three EPs the guys are dropping whenever they remember that NIN is a thing. "Less Than" and "This Isn't The Place" already make me dig this one more than Not The Actual Events, and I look forward to the rest and whatever the "Physical Component" is this time. I'm guessing just a bag of bleach and a few trading cards of professional golfers or something.

Tau Cross – Pillar Of Fire THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From NINE INCH NAILS, WINTERSUN, IN THIS MOMENT, and More Out Today 7/21

Genre: Heavy metal/crust
Origin: Montreal, Canada/Isle of Skye, Scotland/Minneapolis, United States
Label: Relapse

Buy now on Amazon.com

On their second album, this international quintet of are once again taking nasty, crusty metal and infusing some surprisingly catchy melodies. I haven't heard too much like this band, and that's pretty cool. They're like if High On Fire slowed down a bit, listed to some punk, but refused to tone down any of their distortion.
