THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From OBITUARY, WITHOUT WAVES, and More Out Today 3/17

Posted by on March 17, 2017 at 11:06 am

This edition features a deathcore band playing deathcore, some prog (greetings prog dogs!), some epicness, and more! To the metals…

 Fit For An Autopsy – The Great Collapse 

Genre: Deathcore
Origin: Jersey City, New Jersey
Label: eOne

Buy now on Amazon.com

FFAA have returned with more heavy, groovy, breakdown-infused deathcore. For those disappointed by the latest Suicide Silence album, this album is for you. Deathcore isn't my wheelhouse, but I feel like this one will be better received.

King Of Asgard – :taudr: EP 

Genre: Folk metal
Origin: Mjölby, Sweden
Label: Trollmusic

Buy now on Amazon.com

It's been a long four years since King of Asgard released their epic album Karg, and the band are back with this five song EP. :taudr: is just as epic and great, but it's just simply not enough. The band has created a false scarcity and it's making me want more. Well played.

KXM – Scatterbrain 

Genre: Hard rock
Origin: Los Angeles, California
Label: Rat Pak

Buy now on Amazon.com

What an odd group of musicians. This trio is George Lynch (ex-Dokken, solo), dUg Pinnick (King's X), and Ray Luzier (Korn). The three of them work really well together, actually. I realize that's totally a backhanded compliment, but it seemed too weird to work. I was wrong.

Mothership – High Strangeness 

Genre: Stoner
Origin: Dallas, Texas
Label: Heavy Psych Sounds/Ripple

Buy now on Amazon.com

This album is riffs, on riffs, on riffs. It's like if a recent Red Fang record was pushed through a Texan filter, so it's got some Southern sounds infused into the smokey riffs. Did I mention the riffs?

Obituary – Obituary 

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Gibsonton, Florida
Label: Relapse

Buy now on Amazon.com

On their tenth album, death metal OGs Obituary are doing what they've done for the last thirty years. That, of course, is no frills death metal mastery. There are some pretty infectious death n roll-ish tracks on this, and great guitar work from Kenny Andrews on throughout. Michael's review is here.

Without Waves – Lunar 

Genre: Experimental
Origin: Chicago, Illinois
Label: Prosthetic

Buy now on Amazon.com

I'm ending this week's entry with a band that seems to be playing right into what I love. Lunar is all over the place in the best way. This band dabbles with sludge, hardcore, post-rock, and progressive rock. It's a fantastic full-length label debut that I'll be putting into my ears for a long time.
