Apparently I’ve been sleeping under a rather large rock, one the size of a mountain. The reason I say this is because the Italian thrashers known as Injury have released a new track and announced a new album and this is the first I’m hearing about it! Where have I been?
I’m sure a lot of you are already familiar with Injury, especially since their 2011 album, Unleash The Violence (Punishment 18 Records) was nothing short of epic. If for some reason you’re not familiar with Injury, you’ve been living under a bigger rock than me. Since forming in 2008, these thrashers have become one of the most popular bands in the Italian underground today playing shows along side bands like Death Angel and Suicidal Angels and writing riffs that make it impossible not to bang your head.
I personally fell in love with Injury two years ago, not long after I started this blog. After purchasing Unleash The Violence and playing the album more times than I can count, I’ve been patiently awaiting a new Injury album. Months have dragged on and to be honest I was starting to give up hope, I didn’t think Injury were ever going to release a new album. However a late night of Facebook trolling extinguished all my doubt and reminded me of a very important life lesson, never give up! As it turns out Injury aren’t just releasing a new album, they’re releasing a new album in less than a month and the band has already released a bitchin’ new track off the album!
The Shadow Behind The Cross is the first track off Injury’s second album, DominHate, and I’m happy to announce the song crushes! The track features the unrelenting intensity fans have come to expect from Injury along with the killer riffs and relentless drumming that draws us all to this bands music. Although The Shadow Behind The Cross is only one track, it has this blogger head-over-heels with excitement. If the rest of DominHate is anything like this, this album is going to rule!
Listen to The Shadow Behind The Cross below and be on the look out for DominHate, which drops March 4th via Ferocious Records!
