BLACK METAL: to some it's the purest embodiment of uncompromising musical nonconformity, while to others it's the meme that keeps on giving (I predict knit corpsepaint ski masks will be all the rage before February wraps up). These are not necessarily irreconcilable opinions on the subject… we here at Metal Injection do our fair share [...]
The first wave of Black Metal is almost always associated with the Scandinavian peninsula, but there were so many things going on in the crazy and small world that several bands tended to have similar ideas at the same time. Master's Hammer are a Czech band with plenty of great black metal sound; theirs is [...]
As a part of Black Metal History Month, we will be looking back at some essential black metal albums that any fan should be listening to. Here is a look at two essential Emperor albums. When I first listened to Black Metal, I tried out several of the original “inner circle” bands to see if [...]
It's been a pretty kick ass year for metal. A lot of great follow ups from established bands, a few new surprises, and plenty of riffs. This list is organized in reverse order. Hope you enjoy!
It’s always been my motto that “I’ll go wherever the music takes me,” and since no place on earth is any further than a plane ride away, my last global metal adventure took me and my trusty camera to Wrexham, Leeds, and Manchester, UK for three EAR-gasmic nights with Norway’s own 1349. Having last seen [...]
More bands need to get into the sewn vest industry.
I would be willing to bet that the early Norwegian black metal bands didn’t anticipate their style of music to actually last for a decade, let alone two. Such pivotal acts like Darkthrone, Burzum, and Emperor have inspired bands the world over, and their early 90s material are frequently cited as genuinely classic metal albums. [...]
This edition of the Livecast began with stories. Sean told a story about how he took a shitty cooking class and then Rob told a story about being invited to a murder mystery party. In the second hour, we got on the phone with Garrett Weinstein, who drew that awesome comic with Rob in it [...]
In a country that boasts of our first amendment, we've taken our liberties to speak, shred, and blast beat out – in the name of anti-clerical, anarchic causes, and pure metal blasphemy. This anti-clerical expression is far from confined to the states; we get such doses from the finest black metal bands of Finland, to [...]
During my usual late night quest to find sweet unheard of bands around the world, I recently stumbled onto the artwork of Dennis Dread. Dennis is a Portland, Oregon based ball point pen artist, album cover designer, and DIY fanzine maker (those things written, cut & pasted, copied, collated, and mailed by hand). A couple [...]
Deconstruction and Ghost have certainly been some of the most anticipated records of the year for me personally, and now the wait is finally over. After being incredibly impressed with both of the Devin Townsend Project’s initial releases, Ki and Addicted, I couldn’t wait to see how the final two pieces of this project would [...]
Welcome to the April 2011 Edition of the Relapse Podcast. Viking Phil has taken over the podcast starting this month. This month, he caught up with Steffen Kummerer of Obscura to talk about their new album Omnivium, and Steffen shows us his favorite Obscura songs as well as a few other of his favorites from [...]

Here is the entire playlist: 1. Dissection – Black Horizons 2. Lja – Et Barn Er Dodt I Betlehem 3. Immortal [...]
By Graham "Gruhamed" Hartmann In the spirit of Black Metal History Month, in this year of our Lord 2011, it's only right that we acknowledge the enlightened souls who have made black metal so important. Of course by this I mean the artists who have committed incredibly hateful, violent and sacrilegious crimes, launching them to [...]
