Intense Millennium Records is very proud to announce the details of the first of their new releases from their recent signing of Christian Metal artist David Benson! David Benson has signed on with IMR for a multi album deal! Where we will be featuring and bringing back to life some classic reissues remastered and expanded with new artwork and liner notes!

The first of these classic reissues will bring you a newly remastered and expanded version of the LONG out of print David Benson album entitled ‘Purpose of the Cross’. Purpose of the Cross was originally released in 1996 independently in a pressing of only 1000 copies, of which, these have been completely long gone for years and have been a really tough collectible to come by for the David Benson fan!

Now you will have one more chance to pick up a Limited Edition version of this classic David Benson album as we will only be releasing 1000 copies of this which will soon make even this remastered and expanded edition tough to come by!

But wait that’s not all! This expanded version will be coming with three previously unreleased bonus tracks that have never before seen the light of day! In 2002 Mick Rowe of another famous Christian Metal band called TEMPEST would recruit David Benson to sing on what was to become a brand new Tempest album entitled ‘Crushing the Dark Cathedral’. Unfortunately after 3 tracks were written and completely recorded the album would never see the light of day and those three songs would be locked away never to be released to the general public until now!

Intense Millennium Records is proud to be releasing to the world on May 31, 2011 David BensonPurpose of the Cross’ completely remastered and expanded featuring brand new cover art and liner notes from David Benson himself! Get your copy quick before they are once again long gone!

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.

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.
