Fallstar presents “Saratoga Springs”, an exclusive track off their upcoming record Reconciler. Refiner. Igniter. The record drops on March 29th and will be available for free download courtesy ComeandLive.com!

In a recent interview vocalist Chris Ratzlaff had this to say about the track-
“I love Native American culture and last year I traveled down to Death Valley to study the Saratoga Springs culture. I wrote as someone from that culture experiencing God, and I often wonder if that group of people knew the God I know. This is my absolute favorite song on the record and I’m so stoked to play it on tour, it brings out the dance!”


LYRICS:

SARATOGA SPRINGS

So I press my ear to the ground. For when the Great Spirit speaks. I will move with the wind. What it took me to learn I cannot read the skies. What it took me to learn the smoke in my eyes was signals and signs. Where the willow trees sing out by the water’s edge. You were tending your garden in the sun. Whoa. We raise with colored crowns. He calls us from the ground. He gave us the dance, the movement the wings. He gave us a song to sing, to scream. In my heart’s a battle, it’s long and must be won. He gave us a song to sing, to scream. All other gods lie prostrate before you sobbing and professing their inadequacy. His name is Donner. His name is Blitzen. I will move. Magma recreate. May this earth be born again.

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. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
