Injektion XL 

Xtra Lethal (www.injektionxl.com)

Injektion XL's debut full-length, Xtra Lethal, is 15 tracks of dark hip-hop beats underneath even darker flows from group masterminds Tkilla and ProVok. The programmed rhythms and melodies are simple, leaving room for comparatively complex lyrical flows that cover everything from the standard dissing of unnamed adversaries to the more thematic "Pick Ya Poison," where the rhymers rattle off a series of deadly contagions.

Many of the tracks -- like the pro-Cleveland "Bringin' the Pain" and "Dusk Til Dawn," inspired by a mushroom trip --seem designed to get the crowd excited at live shows. And the group's impressive list of concert dates proves that it has spent some serious time on Cleveland stages. If you've been anxiously awaiting the apocalypse and need some music to pass the time, Xtra Lethal may be your poison.
