Black Death Cult – Diaspora

Genre: Black metal/doom
Origin: Canada
Label: Profound Lore

Buy now on Bandcamp

With a name like Black Death Cult, you can probably guess what you’re in for. This is a nasty and dark ride of an album with black metal, doom, and death metal blended together. However, that is just on it’s surface. They are subtle layers of synth, piano, and ambience that are most rewarding upon re-listens. These layers add new depth to this and create a somehow more hellish audio landscape.

Carpenter Brut – Leather Terror

Genre: Darksynth
Origin: Poitiers, France
Label: Universal

Buy now on Bandcamp

Carpenter Brut is back to get you dancing! Leather Terror is all the driving, quasi-industrial, synth stuff you’ve come to expect and love. This time you’re getting a diverse roster of guest spots from Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan), Ulver, Sylvaine, and more.

Dirty Shirt – Get Your Dose Now!

Genre: Progressive/folk metal
Origin: Seini, Romania
Label: Self-released

Buy now on Bandcamp

Long time readers will know by now that I am partial to the weirder side of heavy music. Dirty Shirt certainly has my attention this week. They’re like a mix of 6:33, Russkaja, and Turisas. This is bombastic, fun metal with Romanian folk mixed in.

Eunoia – Psyop Of The Year

Genre: Experimental/mathcore?
Origin: Cincinnati, Ohio
Label: Nefarious industries

Buy now and sample on Bandcamp

If this Weekly Injection has been too upbeat for you so far, then the latest from Eunoia should take care of the need to darkness. Psyop of the Year is noisy, chaotic, dissonance that dips its toes in black metal, grindcore, hardcore, and alternative metal. It’s really difficult to succinctly nail down, and that’s sure to be part of its appeal.

Gggolddd – This Shame Should Not Be Mine

Genre: Experimental/post-metal
Origin: The Netherlands
Label: Artoffact Records

Buy now on Bandcamp

Somewhere between Carpenter Brut and last week’s Emily Jane White you’d find the latest from Gggolddd. There is a bit of a darkwave base with some evil synths and post-metal waves of heavy on This Shame Should Not Be Mine. This is dark, sad, and beautiful.

Meshuggah – Immutable

Genre: Progressive metal/djent
Origin: Västerbotten, Sweden
Label: Atomic Fire

What do I even need to say? New Meshuggah! Groove to it you dingus. Max has a full rundown here.

Nekrogoblikon – The Fundamental Slimes And Humours

Genre: Melodic death/folk metal
Origin: Santa Barbara, California
Label: Self-released

Buy from the band

After four years the goblin has returned. Like every Nekrogoblikon they’re giving you a lot of metal flavors. I’m unsure if it’s meant to be tongue-in-cheek still, because they do this so well. This album does feature the second instance (that I can think of) of a goblin dick on the cover of a record. So, it also has that going for it.

Steak – Acute Mania

Genre: Stoner rock
Origin: London, England
Label: Ripple Music

Buy now on Bandcamp

So often a stoner rock band just whips out some Black Sabbath or Kyuss riffs and calls it good. Steak, on the other hand, retain a smoky aura with plenty off riffage, but they do so with another layer of song writing prowess. This record is stoner rock with a prog spirit. Stream the whole thing right here.
