New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

This week’s new heavy metal releases include lots of weird stuff, death metal pings, and more! to the metals…

Krallice – Inorganic Rites

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

Genre: Avant-garde black metal
Origin: New York, New York
Label: Self-released

Buy now on Bandcamp

After dropping two albums and a compilation last year, the surprisingly prolific Krallice are already back with another haunting, odd album. This is a rather synth-forward record that still has plenty of black metal staples. I found myself saying, “what is happening here?” more than once during the full-length listen. That is meant as a compliment.

Octoploid – Beyond The Aeons

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

Genre: Melodic/progressive death metal
Origin: Helsinki, Uusimaa, Finland
Label: Reigning Phoenix

Buy now from Reigning Phoenix

Keeping things weird this week, I guess. The sophomore record from Octoploid has made me a fan. There is plenty of melodic death metal, but things will occasionally take a turn towards 70’s prog and that juxtaposition is when this shines. Lots of guests here too like Mikko form Swallow the Sun, Tomi from Amorphis, Jón from Barren Earth, and more.

Piah Mater – Under the Shadow of a Foreign Sun

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

Genre: Progressive death metal
Origin: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Label: Code666

Buy now on Bandcamp

Last week, I talked about the latest White Stones album and said fans of death metal Opeth should check it out. Well, that was just a holdover until THIS album. This duos first album in six years is a heavy and dark exploration of death metal songs that could double as ghost stories. They weave in plenty of atmosphere and melody throughout, and even some saxophone from Shining‘s Jorden Munkeby on a track. Hell yes.

Sumac – The Keeper’s Tongue

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

Genre: Sludge remixes
Origin: Vancouver, British Columbia
Label: Thrill Jockey

Buy and sample now on Bandcamp

A couple weeks ago I mentioned a future Sumac release after they dropped The Healer, and here it is. This is a pair of songs from the latest album remixed by Moor Mother and Raven Chacon. I’m frankly not familiar with either of them, but this crossover is a hell of an introduction as they contort the slow, sludgy tracks into wildly different shapes.

Visions Of Atlantis – Pirates II – Armada

The Weekly Injection: New Releases From WORMED, KRALLICE & More Out Today 7/5

Genre: Folk/power metal
Origin: Bruck an der Mur, Styria, Austria
Label: Napalm

Buy now on Bandcamp

You know it’s time for a wild whimsical metal ride when the album’s title both is a sequel and mentions pirates. A ride – or I guess, a sea voyage – is what you’re getting on the latest from Visions of Atlantis. Their sequel to 2022’s Pirates, is symphonic metal at its grandest and it’s about pirates. Yo ho.

Wormed – Omegon

Genre: Technical death metal
Origin: Madrid, Spain
Label: Season Of Mist

Buy now on Bandcamp

Ok, maybe there has been a lot of prog and pirates this week. This one is for you heavy as heck types. This has unrelenting heaviness start to finish, low guttural vocals, and a wonderfully pingy death metal snare. Quite the return after either years without a full record.
