This week’s new heavy metal releases include ballads that will make you want to fight, riffs on riffs, death metal fun, and more! To the metals…

Benighted – Ekbom

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Brutal death metal/grindcore
Origin: Saint-Étienne, France
Label: Season Of Mist

Buy now on Bandcamp

Starting this week off really heavy. The tenth record from these Frenchmen is techy, booming, and even a lil’ epic. Ekbom is a surprisingly diverse one as well.

Castle Rat – Into The Realm

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Heavy metal/doom
Origin: Brooklyn, New York
Label: King Volume Records

Buy now on Bandcamp

Castle Rat have all the ingredients for a folk metal band. They’re rocking capes, fur pelts, and face paint and yet they’re bringing some very hip stoner rock to you instead. Honestly, just a rad record from a band I fully expect to crossover with the cool kids.

Eidola – Eviscerate

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Progressive metalcore/post-hardcore
Origin: Salt Lake City, Utah
Label: Rise Records

Buy now on Amazon

Now here’s one for us prog dorks. Eidola are an underrated prog force and Eviscerate is another record mixing technical magic and catchy ass melodies. It’s closer to your Emerosa and Dance Gavin Dance-type bands, but fans of Coheed & Cambria and the likes should give this a go.

Heavy Temple – Garden Of Heathens

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Stoner/psychedelic metal
Origin: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Label: Magnetic Eye

Buy now on Bandcamp

Riffs. Plain and simple. Garden of Heathens is a record of fuzzed out everything, Orange amps, and fucking riffs. If you need additional convincing that you’re in for a good time you should know they fronted by High Priestess Nighthawk. Fuck yeah.

Necrot – Lifeless Birth

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Oakland, California
Label: Tankcrimes

Buy now on Bandcamp

This is a solid, straight-up death metal record. Look at the cover. This sounds exactly like that.

Northlane – Mirror’s Edge

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Progressive metalcore/alternative metal
Origin: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Label: Self-released

Buy now on Amazon

On this six track EP Northlane are covering a lot of ground. There are some djent grooves, soaring choruses, and plenty of guests. Those guests include Ian from Karnivool, Winston from Parkway Drive, and even former bassist Brendon Padjasek.

Spit On Your Grave – Arkanum

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico
Label: Concreto Records

Buy now from Concreto

This one’s pretty rad. The third record from Spit On Your Grave is a death metal beating in sonic form, which is rad. Lyrically though, each track inspired by a tarot card. So there’s a little aura of spookiness throughout.

Týr – Battle Ballads

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From NECROT, TÝR, CASTLE RAT & More Out Today 4/12

Genre: Folk metal
Origin: Tórshavn, Faroe Islands
Label: Metal Blade

Buy now on Bandcamp

Taking us home in what might be the most epic way possible. Týr‘s latest has a name that is a bit of a misdirect. Not exactly ballads in the way you’d probably imagine. These are still very much battle tracks.
