“Beyond Our Suffering”–the fast-paced single off the Grammy®-nominated metal group AS I LAY DYING’s upcoming CD THE POWERLESS RISE (out May 11 on Metal Blade)–is now streaming live (70% of the track is available) on their MySpace page www.myspace.com/asilaydying.

Starting today, fans have options for THE POWERLESS RISE as a variety of special pre-order packages are now available, including THE POWERLESS RISE CD plus an autographed booklet and a t-shirt or the deluxe fan box which allows fans to receive the album now (physical CD with autographed booklet). In addition, the digital pre-order is now available on iTunes. To check out all of the new offerings, visit: www.thepowerlessrise.com.

THE POWERLESS RISE marks the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed fourth album An Ocean Between Us (Metal Blade) which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Rock Chart, earning the group a Grammy® nomination for “Best Metal Performance” alongside metal heavyweights Slayer and King Diamond. For the new album, the group re-teamed with producer Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage and mixer Colin Richardson who they’d previously worked with on An Ocean Between Us.

Fans will get a taste of the new album when the San Diego-based group–whose last four albums have sold more than 1.3 million copies–performs live next week on the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which tapes Thursday, April 8 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and will air May 22 on Vh1 Classic. AS I LAY DYING will appear alongside Slash, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, The Devil Wears Prada, and Brian Posehn’s all-star band featuring Scott Ian, Brendon Small, John Tempesta and Joey Vera plus Zakk Wylde (in a special performance) to name a few.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
