Burn It Black [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
By 2002, the American rock scene had seen so much generic alternative metal come down the pipes that cynicism immediately set in when any new bands attempted to join the fold. It is in this environment that Injected's Burn It Black add themselves to the endless supply of heavy-yet-sensitive rockers. But fear not, Burn It Black is actually a great album that unveils a talented group of songwriters awaiting their chance at the mainstream. Much like groups like Local H, Paw, and On before them, the emphasis is on melody and songcraft first, heaviness second. The lyrics don't sink into Gavin Rossdale shallowness, sounding more like Jeff Buckley or Josh Clayton-Felt ...

By 2002, the American rock scene had seen so much generic alternative metal come down the pipes that cynicism immediately set in when any new bands attempted to join the fold. It is in this environment that Injected's Burn It Black add themselves to the endless supply of heavy-yet-sensitive rockers. But fear not, Burn It Black is actually a great album that unveils a talented group of songwriters awaiting their chance at the mainstream. Much like groups like Local H, Paw, and On before them, the emphasis is on melody and songcraft first, heaviness second. The lyrics don't sink into Gavin Rossdale shallowness, sounding more like Jeff Buckley or Josh Clayton-Felt fronting a metal band. And the music isn't heavy in a repetitive, pounding way; instead, Injected takes the time to build dynamics and melody with their instruments. There is only a small difference between bands who do this well and bands who glut the marketplace, and Injected is one band who rejects the tactics of the latter. There are a few moments that are below the band's talents, including the boring rocker "Sherman," but all is forgiven when the untitled, nine-minute album-closer kicks in. Featuring killer melodies during the first half which only turn into a raging thrasher by the end, the track (which is essentially two songs) is a forceful display of their talents. Marking an excellent major-label debut for the band, this is one of the finer groups to arrive in 2002 and should appeal to fans of catchy-but-hard alternative rock.

    Injected ROCKS

    Injected are a great group of guys that can play an AMAZING assortment of tempos and music. Everybody who doesn't have this album yet: BUY IT AND SEE WHAT YOU ARE MISSING!!!! You are being deprived if you haven't bought Burn It Black yet!! Especially listen to ''Bullet'' and ''It Only Hurts Awhile'' (those are my personal favorites). Anyway, you should really own this album because it rocks. Peace out.

    Injected Rawks

    These guys are awesome and eventhough you can tell that they like to rock they also know their music. This isn't just three chord rock'n'roll and the lyrics are deep.

    Finally a good album!

    This album is exactally what us rockers have been waiting for! This album tells like it is. The song are like nothing else I've ever heard. It's so fresh and new. It hasn't been corrupted by MTV and all that other stuff. I've met these guys before and they are so cool and down to earth and their personalites shine thru this album. Every song I can connect to. They're not album stuff that doesn't matter it's about what they're feeling and its basically all the stuff most of us are going thru!

    Check it Out!!

    I enjoy this album every time I put it on. It features songs great enough to stimulate your mind and appreciate that there are great musicians out there. Fav. song would be ''Bullet'' but all the others are definitely unique in their own way.

    True Rock and Roll

    Injected has raw talent that is refined in the best way possible. The order of the tracks flow together in perfect harmony. From Dannys voice to every last guitar riff, this CD rawks. I recommend it to anyone who likes good music.

    Straight-Up Rock

    I stumbled across the ''Faithless'' video on the Internet and thought, ''WOW'', these guys rock. I bought the CD the next day and was amazed at the quality of the songs. I am a big Beatles, U2, Journey, Coldplay, etc fan and thought their harmonies and tight guitar riffs superb. I had been looking for a straight-up rock and roll band and found it in Injected. From the play-on lyrics in ''When She Comes'' to the anti-violence messages in ''Bullet'', the songwriting conveys the effort put into these songs. For a classic interpretation check out Get Music's E-Coustic versions of ''Faithless'' and ''Ms. Fortune''. I think the big seller to me is the image that the band expresses over all as just a bunch of friends who have playing together for sometime and enjoy making good music. You get a real sense that these are some real nice people. That's refreshing!

    Injected Rocks

    Injected, a hot, new band from the big ATL, has a fresh sound that is like no other band out there right now. And for all you ladies, they don't look too bad :) I highly recommend that you buy Burn it Black. You won't regret it.

    BUY THIS CD!

    Definitly a cd you should consider buying. Awesome band, awesome songs. It's just that simple! The best songs to me are BULLET, BURN IT BLACK, or their latest single FAITHLESS. The lyrics are truth-telling and deep, unlike all those POP bands runnin' around these days. I would surely recommend this cd to anyone who likes bands like Incubus, Hoobastank, or Unwritten Law.

    Great Debut

    Burn It Black is a great introduction for a great band. Their first single, Faithless just takes u to another place. And tracks on the cd such as Used Up shows how they talk about REAL issues and ''real life'', not holding back on the lyrics with ''you're just a used up girl living in your useless world, you've got no faith to speak of, only pain. you're just a sad sad trick, when you're overcome i feel so sick, come down, so down, off your hate...''. These group of guys has a unique sound u can't match with anyone. Yet it seems so familiar because its like a fusion of Nirvana, Metallica, Incubus and Fuel. They're wonderful. This is definitely an album to pick up. You won't be able to stop listening to it. :)

    BURNING GOLD

    Injected's first major-label debut album, ''Burn It Black'' may be one of the first great records of the year. With thrashing guitars hardcore drumming and rhythm, the albums tracks come off incredibly. The first single of ''Burn It Black'' is the catchy alternative rock song, ''Faithless,'' which is also featured on the WWE Tough Enough 2 Soundtrack. The second single to be released is the hard track ''Bullet'' which is one of the most aggressive songs on the album. FINAL THOUGHT: why not call it 'burning gold?' because THIS ALBUM ROCKS

    You Must Hear This

    Burn it black is my favorit cd to date. The guitar riffs are awesome and the lyrics are even better. Listen to some track as in ''sherman'',''burn it black'' and ''faithless'' and you will also see that this band is destined for greatness. So if your looking for a great rock cd this year Burn it Black is it.
