Injector's debut album, Black Genesis, came out in 2015 and got some nice reviews in media outlets around the world, so it's time to check out whether they can live up that reputation with their follow-up album.
Yes, they can indeed. Injector's Thrash Metal is well structured and they fall into the same category as bands like Angelus Apatrida and Lost Society, which have messed around with aggression and good 'n' friendly violent fun, playing retro-ish, riff-driven and melodic Thrash Metal.
Having said that, back in the golden era of Speed and Thrash Metal, albums were to-the-point and hardly lasted longer than from 30 to 45 minutes in length. On Stone Prevails, there's nearly 64 minutes of stuff, which could make two compact albums if split it half. They should have done just so because no matter how good and well rehearsed they sound, the album starts sounding a bit tedious toward the end. I personally sort of dropped out after the sixth song, "UTLOA".
My only advice for them is that try to keep your albums to a shorter length from now on. 35-45 minutes is really enough for keeping the brain cells awake and active.
