Metal Injection is a heavy metal music-themed news website. It was created in the summer of 2003 and launched in January 2004[1] by co-owners Robert Pasbani (known for hosting Sirius XM's Liquid Metal) and video producer Frank Godla.[2]

Originally, the company was a half hour public access show on Saturdays at 3 am, which featured music videos and live footage before transitioning to a news site format.[3] The site's content includes reviews,[4] original video content (such as interviews and music documentaries),[5] and various podcasts such as Metal Injection Livecast, Full Metal Hipster, and Relapse Podcast.[6]

In 2012, Metal Injection was awarded the "Beyond the Blog" award at the MTV Online Music Awards.[7]

Metal Injection has put on an annual showcase at the SXSW festival. At the 2015 SXSW festival, Veil of Maya, Cancer Bats, KEN mode, Full of Hell, Felix Martin, Mantar, and Moon Tooth were featured during the Metal Injection Showcase.[8] The following year's SXSW Metal Injection Showcase included Steve 'N' Seagulls, Exmortus, Wild Throne, The Fine Constant, Wrong, Take Over And Destroy, and Aminals.[9]
