My New Project: Injury Of Light

for a long time i wished to write music and share it to the world, making music and uploading the album with his cover art is a awesome feeling. so, i decided to make music on my computer, months ago i've installed a musical software which is very simple to use!. first i started with some easy genres like LOLICORE (it's a mix of dance music and anime music) and in per month i've released my first album.
after that i decided to make something more serious, i was testing my loops and midi's and i found a sound, two months i was working on this album, it sounds like gothic metal with sad pianos and symphonic sounds, with a little opera. and with a little bit of electro key's.

i wanted a gothic name for the project, but after a long headaches i decided to name it INJURY OF LIGHT.
i named the EP album "heart beats" which is simple.

1. Mighty Scream (a epic track, great solos)
2. forgotten land (technical,with good symphonic sounds)
3. forever in my heart (in my opinion, best song of the album, full of sadness)
4. fallen (depressive one,)

Interview With "POOR"

Interview with californian grindcorers "POOR" (point of our resistance) questions was answering NEIL BURKDOLL (guitar/vocals)


1.Can i get a backstory on the band/ band biography?

Well, in early 2006, I decided to write a short 3 song ep along the lines of Nasum and Rotten Sound, since I had just got my first HM-2 distortion pedal and I wanted to try it out.  I wrote White Collared Noose, Jihad Joe, and Corporate Bigwig all in one night.  I asked Brad Vanderzee if he would do session drums and that’s how he got involved.  My ex-STUMP bandmate, Steve Barick, was asked to provide the low vocals for the recording.  I came up with the name and drew the logo in a few minutes with a sharpie, and that was the start.  Then soon after I moved to California and started FATALIST, which lasted 6 years.  Meanwhile Brad decided to follow me to CA a few years later, so we decided to make POOR an actual band.  We asked my bandmate, Art Hayes, to handle live bass duties as well.  I knew of Dylan Kuhn from his band playing a few local shows with FATALIST.  I always liked his voice, so we asked him if he would like to do the main vocals, and the rest is history.  We started writing songs right away and playing shows within a few months of forming.  We eventually recorded our 24 song album, Extinction of Trust, and basically put it out ourselves.  After a few years, Art sort of got too busy with his work as a nurse, so we asked our friend Chris Moriarity to start filling in on live bass.  Then in late September of 2013, we tracked the drums for our 2nd album and ep, once again at Trench Studios.  As soon as this was done, Brad decided to move back to Indiana, leaving me to basically finish the album.  This was a huge blow to us as a band, and basically resulted in the band ending as a Live unit.  The music is recorded for 27 songs, but vocally, it is going very slow.  Hopefully the album comes out at some point in the future.

2. What lyrical theme do you guys use in your music?

Although Dylan and I wrote a few songs, Brad handles most of the lyrics for the band.  He usually just writes about the most negative shit you can think of.  I don’t even know what the hell he is talking about half of the time, but it always sounds pissed off.  Basically, we all just hate people in general and that is a subject that Brad seems to stick with.

3. What bands have influenced your band and its sound?

With this band, it started with Nasum, Rotten Sound, Regurgitate, but we soon started expanding our sound.  I’d say that Pig Destroyer, Phobia, Napalm Death, Blood, Carcass, Misery Index, Defecation, Afgrund, Cerebral Turbulency, etc.  Brad and I like a lot of Punk shit as well.  No one can fuck with the brutality of Minor Threat, and that was something we tried to capture in our sound as well.

4. What made you guys decide to form a band?

I’ve been in bands since 1990, and Brad has been in bands since around 1993 or so.  It’s just something we do, sometimes together.  We’ve been doing our Horror Punk band, Dirty Dead, since the early 2000’s as well.  Once you start playing an instrument, it’s only natural to want to create your own songs.

5. What is your opinion on sites posting your guys material and other bands material?

Well, it sort of pisses me off, but it is what it is.  We paid for everything ourselves and put this album out ourselves.  Since we are selling the thing for $5, it’s not like it’s not affordable.  Oh well, I download albums myself, but I always buy the ones I like.  I have around 3,000 cd’s, and about 600 band shirts, so it’s not like I don’t give to the music community.

6. How do you guys feel about the classifications in metal? Like Metalcore/ deathcore,

There are way too many genre labels at this point, but I understand it.  I’ve never listened to Metalcore/Deathcore, so to me, it’s just Mallcore or Hot Topic Metal.  Sort of pointless, but I guess young kids need to start somewhere.  My start was the original
Thrash bands from the 80’s, cause it was the 80’s.

7. When not doing things with the band, what can you guys be seen doing?

Working mostly.  I just had a baby 7 months ago, so my life has been changed for sure.  I think all of us just work and do normal shit.  Nothing too exciting, that’s all I know.

8. What is your opinion on the current state of metal?

Honestly, I hate it.  Something has been lost through the years.  I’d say right around 2003-2005, I saw a change that I can’t explain.  Back in the late 80’s and 90’s, I would read metal magazines from cover to cover.  Now I have stacks of Decibel and Terrorizer just laying around and I never even look at them.  I have no idea why I keep renewing my subscription to be honest.  It’s either stupid boring wannabe Hippy Black Metal, Metalcore/Deathcore, or just technical Death Metal, and I don’t care for any of it.  Stupid kids with sideswipe haircuts and make up.  I miss the good ol’ days of reading about Church Burnings.  At least the Nu-Metal shit died along the way.

9. How did you guys come up with your band name?

I have no idea how I thought of it.  I thought of the word and knew I had to make it an acronym for something.  Point of our Resistance just popped into my head.  There was not much thought put into it.  It was just supposed to be a 3 song recording project.  It was political at first, but then I realized that I know zero about politics, hahaha.

10) What can the fans expect to see from you in the future?

Hopefully you see our 2nd album and an ep at some point.  It would be a shame if these songs died on my hard drive since they blow the first album away.  I’d like to do some shows again, but it’s really up to Brad at this point.  Not many drummers could play his parts.  He has a very odd style that is not natural for most other drummers.

"Babymetal" #2

as you may remember, i already made a post about the legend of babymetal! coming from the land of the rising sun.

after my post, in few months they released a full-length album with the same name BABYMETAL.
album tracklist are the same as the EP albums which they released early, but with 1 new track called GIVE ME CHOCOLATE. now that was WOW.

metal injection and many other popular heavy music communities shared the song, but for me that song was not so interesting, the dancing cute teen girls were more awesome.

the album was in the #1 place in the itunes metal chart


youtube reacts on babymetal! now that was interesting..

but the most interesting is that many metal bands and metal communities share the songs of them with question "WHAT?"

and taking pics with bands:
