It's been a pretty great week for metal, hardcore, and metal-adjacent music, with new albums from The Black Dahlia Murder, Oranssi Pazuzu, Hexvessel, and Infant Island, all four of which I wrote about in Notable Releases. You can also head to Invisible Oranges' Upcoming Metal Releases to read about the new Khemmis, Ripped to Shreds, Abysmal Dawn, and more. We also embedded a couple other new full-lengths below, alongside new singles from Umbra Vitae (Converge's J Bannon), Vile Creature, The Acacia Strain, Masterpiece Machine (Power Trip, Fucked Up), Kall, -(16)-, Oathbreaker (Chelsea Wolfe remix), and much more...
