Welcome to our weekly playlist of the best new songs and streams from the week.

We're kicking off with Paramore before moving straight into the metal underworld with Cathedral, who are officially breaking up after their next album. If you're not familiar with their work, this stream is a good place to start.

Then we've got Dinosaur Jr. and their nice little cover of a recent track by pop group Phoenix, but that's the last moment of peace you'll get before an assault of awesomely heavy new tracks from every corners of the metal world. Ramp up the volume and strap yourself in - there's some great music down there.

We love to hear about your favorite tracks and always listen to any tips on new artists in the comments, so join the debate down there and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

Paramore "Still Into You"

The second song from Paramore's forthcoming self-titled album, slated for release in early April.

Cathedral "The Last Spire"

Cathedral have been one of the most respected doom metallers in the world for more than 20 years, but they've decided to call it a day. Their final album "The Last Spire" will be available from April 30 in North America - listen to the title track here.

Dinosaur Jr. "Entertainment"

Alt-rock kings Dinosaur Jr. cover a song by Phoenix, who might be the only awesome pop group in the world. We shared the Phoenix version on a recent weekly playlist, but this stream is a great re-interpretation too.

Iced Earth "Damien"

An operatic live recording from their first official Blu-Ray/DVD live release. They've been playing more shows in the past year than they had in the past decade, and it sounds like they're on top form.

Kvelertak "Manelyst"

Warning: this gory video probably isn't suitable for work or squeamish minds. But the music rocks, so why not put this window in a tab and bother your boss with the volume instead.

Heaven Shall Burn "Veto"

If you're not into electronic beats, be patient; this song explodes with all the rage of Rammstein recording a metal anthem with Trent Reznor.

Hypocrisy "Tales Of Thy Spineless"

Frighteningly good death metal from - you guessed it - Sweden.

Lost Society "Fast Loud Death" [FULL ALBUM]

Loud, angst thrash metal - and a full 13 tracks of it too. Can't argue with that.

Ivanhoe "Walldancer"

German progressive metal from their next album "Systematrix," due in May.

    Okay. This is not masculine, but that Paramore song is adorable.
    Cathedral has been my favourite doom band since they started in the early 90's. They had a streak of 3 or 4 so-so albums beginning in the late 90's but love the track posted here...great to hear they're finishing strong.
    Cathedral are so underrated! I remember getting "The Ethereal Mirror" back when a track from it was being played on Headbanger's Ball. Great album, totally got me into more doom bands.
    Agreed. IMHO, the opening to "The Ethereal Mirror" (songs "Violet Vortex Intro" and "Ride") is one of the greatest moments in metal history only surpassed by the "War Pigs - Paranoid" coupling of the beloved Black Sabbath.
    "Phoenix, who might be the only awesome pop group in the world." Well that sure as shit isn't true
    My heart skipped a beat when I saw Dinosaur Jr in the front page. Words can not describe how much they rock.
    YES! It seems like they've started to get more recognition over the last few years (maybe the world is finally catching up to how great they are?). I used to practice in the same building as they did in the mid 90's for a while, awesome guys too.
    I hope so, they're one of the bands that set the stage for what rock music would become in the 90's (despite starting in the 80's), but they never seem to get the proper recognition. You're also very lucky, I'd sell a kidney to hear Mascis jamming just a few floors away from me everyday.
    Totally agreed. They practiced literally just down the hall. J Mascis also played in a side project called "Upside Down Cross" (not kidding haha) with some guys in the same building. They were sorta doom metal-ish, Mascis only played guitar, they had another singer.
    Fucking yes! Cathedral, Dinosaur Jr., Iced Earth, and Kvelertak! Sucks that its Cathedral's last album though....

    Hooray for Lost Society! They're really one of the new and young Thrash bands that deserve to get higher up.
