Full disclosure: I loved Korn all the way up until college, then I discovered Slayer. It was a glorious time. The band lost me after Issues and then they just kept putting out sub-par material. I remember re-visiting some of their older stuff not too long ago, and deeming it still listenable. Although, I probably [...]

Ugh, I'm not even going to write a solid lead for this article- I'm too sad being brutal.
Last year Rayny Forster, owner of the pay-what-you-want-including-nothing online record label Moshpit Tragedy, announced that all profit from every album sold on the website was going to be donated to Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary – a haven for abused farm animals. Forster sees this as an opportunity for members of the metal and punk subcultures [...]
Relapse Records just announced that Pig Destroyer have started offering a new EP, titled Mass & Volume, for sale on the band's Bandcamp page. Pig Destroyer recorded the EP of doom metal during the Phantom Limb sessions and the band is offering a digital download for ten dollars. All proceeds from the EP will go [...]
The people who work behind the scenes in the metal world were devastated this week at the loss of Pat Egan, Relapse’s director of sales for the past 10 years. Egan died from complications of pneumonia. I only met Egan on a handful of occasions, but he was always all smiles. Metal Insider and Billboard Magazine both have touching tributes to [...]
I haven't been in college for almost 10 years now, and I still get nightmares about showing up to class and not having my homework, or studying for a final, or some crap that I am so thankful I never have to deal with again. But, if my college offered a course in "metal lyrics," [...]
It's been an eventful week for For Today. After taking to Twitter and mentioning that "homosexuality is a sin," For Today guitarist Mike Reynolds received a tsunami of backlash from other metal musicians and peers alike. Today, we learn that Reynolds has left the band to become a missionary in the middle east with his [...]
Never did I think I'd write a story about Papa Roach on this site, but here we are. Stone Sour announced a new nationwide tour with the Roach for early 2013 with Otherwise opening up. I am digging the new Stone Sour album, House of Gold & Bones Part 1 and would imagine the band [...]
Some of you reading this may be in college right now with hopes of getting into the music business, which may seem like such a fun place to work, until you actually start working in it. I worked at a small record label (that has since went out of business) and the whole scenario scarred [...]
Hurricane Sandy hit the North Eastern United States pretty bad a couple weeks ago. While we here at Metal Injection were lucky to be unaffected, we do know many who have lost their recording studios, instruments, and even homes. While many different organizations have been getting involved to raise funds for relief, I couldn't be [...]
Lori Kogan who is in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and a licensed psychologist did a study on whether dogs were metal or not. Actually that's a lie. Lori was performing behavioral studies on the effects different genres of music had on dogs.
When I heard the sad news today about Mitch Lucker's death, my first thoughts were of a day back in 2005 when I first heard about Suicide Silence. Now of course, Suicide Silence would go on to become an unmentionable heresy among Metal elitists, but back then they were a little known-band from Riverside, California. [...]
On October 31st, the Berklee College of Music will hold their annual Metal Guitar Night, which is a showcase of their finest metal guitar musicians. The prestigious school is the alma mater of such metal icons as Dethklok founder Brendan Small, Former Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie, and Tim “Ripper” Owens to name a [...]
Machine Head played a secret show at Kings College in London last night, under their cover band moniker Ten Ton Hammer. They played some sweet covers as they usually do, and surprise!, somebody taped it and uploaded it to Youtube. While the band played covers of classic Metallica, Pantera, and Iron Maiden tracks, only their [...]
Crossover thrash is a genre that can be traced back to Join The Army era Suicidal Tendencies and the very obviously titled Crossover by party mongers Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. This is the main impetus for Richmond Virginia's Municipal Waste and what we get this time is a new label (Nuclear Blast) for the band's 5th album, [...]
