August Burns Red - 2021

In preparation for their upcoming release, Leveler: 10th Anniversary Edition, August Burns Red has unleashed a brand new version of their song, “Pangaea,” featuring a guitar solo from Periphery’s Misha “Bulb” Mansoor. The song is the second reimagined single off the band’s re-recorded fourth album, and Mansoor’s unparalleled signature sound transforms this fan favorite into a unique and exciting experience.

“It may be the most progressive song on the album so it felt like a natural fit to have Misha from Periphery perform on the track. He delivered quite possibly the most head-spinning guitar solo that we’ve ever had on an ABR song.”

JB Brubaker

Fans can expect more special guests, alternate tunings, and more in the full release. Leveler: 10th Anniversary Edition will be available everywhere May 21, 2021 and is now available for pre-order.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
