Sanguine River Absolution

An Album By

Blood Thirsty

Review by

Blood Thirsty is the continuation of a side project of Derek Corzine (Whisper from Heaven, Syringe, Bloodline Severed) he had with Rev. James Rich back in the ’90s. This fast-paced death metal project is backed by a movie-soundtrack-style symphony of sorts, and filled with several decades worth of metal influences, impressive guitar soloing, death metal growls and sound effects that will leave you scratching your head as to how one man does it all. Lyrically, the album is well grounded spiritually, and you can get your devil-bashing on with tunes like “Crush the Head of the Serpent” and “The Day the Devil Lost.” Don’t miss this one.

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.

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.
