Detroit technical death metal act, As They Sleep, has teamed up with Noisecreep.com to premiere a brand new track from the band’s forthcoming Solid State Records debut, Dynasty, entitled “Bedlam at the Nile”.  The third track to be unleashed from Dynasty – a concept album about the rise and fall of empires throughout history – “Bedlam at the Nile” focuses on the plights that hindered and eventually fell ancient Egypt.  Head over to: http://www.noisecreep.com/2010/11/02/as-they-sleep-bedlam-at-the-nile-song-premiere/ to hear the new track today.

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.

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.

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.
