This week's new heavy metal releases include lots of technical guitar, a collab that might surprise you, a classic record re-recorded, and more! To the metals…

ALSO! Today, Bandcamp is doing one of their days of giving 100% of what you pay directly to the labels and artists. So if you can get stuff from Bandcamp, please do.

Cobra Spell – 666

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Heavy metal
Origin: Tilburg, North Brabant, Netherlands
Label: Napalm

Buy now on Bandcamp

This is some pure heavy metal right here. Songs about sex and Satan with catchy riffs and epic vocals. This sounds like a twist on W.A.S.P., but without the turn to Christianity (yet?). This is the the perfect next step from ex-Burning Witches guitarist Sonia Nusselder.

Extortionist – Devoid

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Deathcore
Origin: Washington/Idaho
Label: Unique Leader

Buy now on Bandcamp

On their first release (that's more than a single) of their reunion, Extortionist are hitting you with the low, chunky heaviness. These four songs are like sonic hammers with the occasional melodic break. The eerie atmosphere pairs nicely with the grooves as well.

Full Of Hell & Nothing – When No Birds Sang

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Blackened noise/shoegaze
Origin: Ocean City, Maryland/Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Label: Closed Casket Activities

Buy now on Bandcamp

On their third release of the year Full Of Hell are joining forces with shoegaze crossover darlings Nothing. Full Of Hell know how to pick a collab, so these bands of course, are a success together. The blackened noisy sludge songs have some extra atmosphere while the shoegaze songs have some extra weight and nastiness.

Paradise Lost – Icon 30

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Gothic/doom metal
Origin: Halifax, West Yorkshire, England
Label: Nuclear Blast

Buy now on Amazon

Long-time readers probably notice that I rarely touch a re-release. It has to be something special or weird for me to stray from the "New" of my New Release column. So when a band does a front-to-back re-recording of a classic album of theirs I can be convinced. That's what you're getting here from Paradise Lost. The band have given their fourth record the gift of modern recording technology and it's reputation as a doom classic shan't be shaken by some added clarity.

Plini – Mirage

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Shred/experimental
Origin: Sydney, Australia
Label: Self-released

Buy now on Bandcamp

Australia's finest melodic shredder is back with a five song EP that is sure to impress and discourage guitarists of all types. As always, you're getting some tasteful guitar wanking that traverses a multitude of genres. This multitude is usually centered in the heavy, or at least rock realms. There's a pretty sweet solo from Tosin Abasi from Animals As Leaders on a song. Shreddy worlds colliding!

Unprocessed – …and everything in between

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From PLINI, FULL OF HELL/NOTHING & More Out Today 12/1

Genre: Progressive/alternative metal
Origin: Wiesbaden, Germany
Label: Self-released

Buy now on Bandcamp

Wrapping this week with a record that pairs pretty well with Plini, and even Extortionist on a few songs. There are a lot of guitar theatrics on this record, as well as soaring melodic passages, and some heavy-ass grooves. I could see this band being massive soon enough, so get in soon so you can have the "I liked them before they were popular" cred.
