Album number twelve from Hegg and the boys sees Amon Amarth bringing the melodic heaviness like they always do. You know what you’re in for and you’re stoked about it. Go steal a ship because your summer sailing soundtrack has arrived. Peep Chad’s review here.

Ether Coven – The Relationship Between The Hammer And The Nail

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From AMON AMARTH, SOULFLY & More Out Today 8/5

Genre: Sludge/hardcore
Origin: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Label: Good Fight Music

Bringing oodles of feedback and oodles or rage are Ether Coven. They hit with the hammer of a slow sludge act but have bursts of energy like a Converge. Darkness throughout on this one.

Grave BathersRock ‘N’ Roll Fetish

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From AMON AMARTH, SOULFLY & More Out Today 8/5

Genre: Heavy metal/doom
Origin: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Label: Seeing Red Records

Buy now on Bandcamp

Rock and metal are silly and Grave Bathers are an act that turns all the cliches of the genre up to 11 (oh hey, there’s one of the cliche’s right there!) to great success. With Rock ‘N’ Roll Fetish they drop the most fun record of the week. Heads will bang as you get old school inspired riffs and rhythms.

Psycroptic – Divine Council

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From AMON AMARTH, SOULFLY & More Out Today 8/5

Genre: Technical death metal
Origin: West Hobart, Australia
Label: Prosthetic

One of tech death’s longer running bands is back to show you that the scene ain’t just a young person’s game. While it’s been four years since As the Kingdom Drowns, the winning streak they kicked off there continues with this album. You’re also getting some guest vox from Origin’s Jason Keyser throughout. Stream the whole thing here as part of Tech-Death Tuesday

Savage Master – Those Who Hunt At Night

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From AMON AMARTH, SOULFLY & More Out Today 8/5

Genre: Heavy metal
Origin: Louisville, Kentucky
Label: Shadow Kingdom Records

Buy now on Bandcamp

Pairing nicely with Grave Bathers – in aesthetic at least – we have the latest from heavy metalers Savage Master. Fans of Judas Priest and Huntress will have a good time with this one. Fans of musicians with bags on their heads will also dig this. I’m sure that’s a scene of it’s own.

Soulfly – Totem

THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases From AMON AMARTH, SOULFLY & More Out Today 8/5

Genre: Groove metal/thrash
Origin: Phoenix, Arizona
Label: Nuclear Blast

Concluding this week with the busiest man in groove metal Max Cavalera. Totum comes four years after the killer Ritual and feels like a sequel to that one with some additional experimenting. Some pretty cool guests here too like John Tardy from Obituary, a couple dudes from Eternal Champion, Power Trip‘s Chris Ulsh, and Richie Cavalera from Incite. Our Max has a full review here.
