New concert footage of Doomriders has been posted. The band played Quincy, MA this past Monday, May 6th and they opened with a new track, "New Pyramids." Video by Hate5six.com.
Zozobra fucking rules. The band consists of members of Cave In, and two of the dudes are in Old Man Gloom so that should give you a sense of what the band sounds like, post-hardcore awesomeness. Their new album, Savage Masters comes out April 2nd via Brutal Panda Records, and hearing the full stream just now has me pumped. This album crushes! Take a listen: (more…)
There seem to be more and more little supergroups forming over the past few years, and in no way is that a bad thing. Mutoid Man are no different.
Remember last year when Kurt Ballou teased us saying that Old Man Gloom was recording a new record? Then, turns out they weren't. Then, there was an easter egg promising some OMG for May of 2012. Well, since May is just around the corner, things are starting to make sense. Maybe the promise was not for a new album, but a string of Old Man Gloom tour dates? Or, could it be both? Just to get everyone to speed, Old Man Gloom is an all-star sludge/doom band featuring Aaron Turner of ISIS, Nate Newton of Converge/Doomriders, Caleb Scofield ofCave In and Santos Montano of Zozobra. Even if there is no new music, you KNOW I am going to be front and center checking the live shows out. So far only 5 shows have been announced, all on the east coast. If we hear of more, you will know about it, but here is the routing so far: (more…)
We have just added over 100 new photos into our gallery. First up, our west coast photographer Aline has just posted photos from the Metal Alliance tour, which features sick snaps of Crowbar, Helmet, St. Vitus, Kylesa, Howl, Red Fang and The Atlas Moth. Check those out over here. Also, our NYC photog Nathaniel Shannon posted some stills of Cave In's return to New York City to promote their upcoming album release. Check those photos out right here.
It's almost Friday~! Who else is ready to party all weekend long? Here are a few tunes to hold you over for now…
A few days ago IWRESTLEDABEARONCE released a fake press release announcing a new black metal sound that should be expected on the band's album. They even released new promo photos of them looking very grim and kvlt. All was revealed to be in jest when the band's new single premiered on Metalsucks earlier today. They sound as spazzy as ever. Their new album, Ruining it for Everybody, comes out Tuesday, July 26 on Century Media.
Fit For An Autopsy is a band we are getting really excited about. The band, which features Nate Johnson, one of the best vocalists in metal today, just posted a track on their Facebook page. You'll have to like the page to hear the track, but we think it will be a like you will not regret. Sheer brooooootality!
Cave In fans rejoice! A new track has made it's way online from their first new album in six years.
Finally, you really need to hear the new Engineer track. Holy shit, does it sound amazing. Check it out.
Between The Buried And Me frontman Tommy Rogers' solo project, Thomas Giles is hitting the road for a select amount of dates. I've heard the Giles record and it is all over the place, and I mean that in a good way. It's a very intriguing, proggy record. I am interested to see how he can pull this all off live. Joining Tommy for the ride is Cave In frontman Stephen Brodsky performing solo and Braveyoung. Here are the announced dates: (more…)
A new week begins and new music is released. Here are today's musical treats for you:
All you fans of post-hardcore are most likely looking forward to Cave-In's upcoming self-released live CD, Anomalies Vol. 2 — Live In Italy. You can get a taste of it with the above clip.
Kataklysm are streaming a new album, Heaven's Venom on their MySpace page. The album comes out August 13th in Europe, and the 24th here in the States.
Relapse announced the signing of another band, Broughton's Rules and after checking their MySpace page, I can confirm they in fact rule. Their debut release is scheduled sometime around November.
Uhh, Limp Bizkit posted a new track. Do you care?
Our Charles Bro-sons at MetalSucks tipped us off that a new Soundgarden has surfaced on a Seattle radio station website. While it's an unreleased track, it was actually recorded during the Badmotofinger sessions in 1991. The track will be officially released as part of the band's Telephantasm retrospective, out on September 28th.

For us Metal Injectioners, it was a delight running into Trap Them at the Crazy Donkey last week when we shot Black Dahlia Murder's entire set in Long Island. It was even better watching Trap Them again, despite all their gear issues. Then I remembered, "Shit, exactly 7 months ago I took pictures of them in Jersey. And, shit, I never put them on Metal Injection!"
So now I have a great excuse to post them on a blog because in a week all us lucky people who live on the east coast will be blessed with Cave In, Narrows and Trap Them shows (New Yorkers get Nov. 19). And I also have an excuse to tell you that New Jersey still has hardcore bands. When Trap Them played that New Brunswick basement, bands Troublemaker, Fleshtemple and Suburban Scum opened for them. And since then, I've been exposed to other NJ based HC that I normally wouldn't give a fuck about. But these bands have managed to open my metal heart and arms to the destructive Seasick and the more punky Staring Problem.
More photos of all the bands after the jump!

It may not be fair to compare DOOMRIDERS to guitarist/vocalist NATE NEWTON's better known day job, but Darkness Come Alive delivers on everything a side project should be. Almost none of the songs sound fit for the breakneck pace of CONVERGE's albums, but they're all strong enough to justify a separate band and tour.
