MASSIVE Audio Roundup: New music from CHARRED WALLS, WARBRINGER, STEEL PANTHER, 3, Mick Barr, TIGER FLOWERS, PATHOLOGY, EAST OF THE WALL, RWAKE
As Tuesday wraps up, we bring you this enlarged, super-sized, mega Audio Roundup, featuring a lot of great tunes from a wide spectrum of metal. Get those headphones on and let's start headbanging…
Who's ready to thrash some Warbringer? The band have a new album, Worlds Torn Asunder, due September 27th on Century Media, and have released the first taste of the album. Listen to "Shattered Like Glass" on Guitar World. The track is all sorts of awesome. (more…)

FUCK YES!! I'm always surprised to learn many people either never heard of Fight, or simply never got hip to it. That's understandable though,maybe balls to the wall crushing metal with top notch musicians, and one of the best front men known in the genre's history may not be your thing… but that doesn't make you less naive.
The year was 1993, mainstream metal was only getting lighter and weaker across the U.S. when ex-Judas Priest front man Rob Halford announced he'd be making a come back with a new younger band, and a more direct approach. His last effort with Priest then was Painkiller, an LP that was as epic then as it is now. So needless to say the metal community was both eager and worried to see what Halford had in store. Most critics claimed he'll never be able to release something as heavy as Painkiller again, and it's simply not where metal is anymore. Wow were they wrong! (more…)
LORDI look like GWAR. Now that that's out of the way, remember that originality is overrated, and that being a pioneer doesn't necessarily mean being the high standard. Judged on its own, Lordi's music is exactly what it should be–stoopid, basic, catchy hard rock with song titles that were probably taken from JOEY DEMAIO's notebook. The Finnish metal beasts' fifth album, Babez for Breakfast, isn't quite up to the comedy metal of Gwar or STEEL PANTHER, and it's nowhere near as idiosyncratic as their best labelmates on The End. But I bet it sounds awesome when performed by pyro-happy monsters. (more…)
I have seen Steel Panther perform live twice and even got the chance to interview them last year, and these dudes get it. A lot of people say they can't get into the band's music, but honestly, that's not even their best assett. Seeing the band live, you don't only see them go through a bunch of 80's covers, you see them deliver the most hilarious metal-based stand up comedy around. They just have really good comic timing. And that's ultimately what sells me on them. So, when I was reading a press release that Comedy Central issued detailing their upcoming year of production I was excited to see that the band sold the channel on a pilot based on their schtick. And you'll never guess who's producing it: (more…)

Metal Injection undeniably watches a crap load of music videos each year, I suppose that is part of our job for better or worse. Luckily, every now and then I come across a music video that not only allows insight to the bands demeanor, but is an absolute pleasurable viewing experience for one reason or another. I've compiled a list of said videos to share with you below… (more…)
Fresh off the release of their new music video, the world's best self-parody glam band, STEEL PANTHER is now streaming their entire new CD (which is in stores now), Feel the Steel. Hear it after the jump… (more…)
