Nokternal Hemizphear are extremely stoked! “Through a fantastic brotherly friendship I have with Fedor Buzilevich, vocalist and founder of Holy Blood, God has blessed NH with the opportunity offer to all of us the NEW Holy Blood “Shining Sun” shirt sleeve and long sleeve shirts! And it gets even better. These shirts are being sent to us directly from Fedor himself. These are printed overseas and are the authentic Russian version of the shirt. So basically the title of the album is in Russian. Over time, customers have been asking for Russian versions of Holy Blood shirts, so this is very pleasing for us at NH to finally be able to offer them to customers.”

So here is the deal…

Due to a very cool and radical fan of Holy Blood already purchasing a chunk of these shirts before we had a chance to get them posted in the shop, we now only have 15 copies of the SS and 5 copies of the LS available in sizes M, L, and XL. I can honestly say that this is a one-time deal. I do not know when this chance to stock these Russian version shirts again will exist, if ever. So, if you really want some, don’t wait around. Lately, I have had to unfortunately disappoint customers due to being out of certain sizes and designs because they did not react quickly enough to get what they wanted. The Christian scene is far too small to have huge amounts of inventory sitting around on items like these. They are limited and special. Please keep in mind that the LS version does not have any art on the sleeves, they are blank. We only have a photo of the shirts at this moment.

Show your support of the first (and in my opinion) legendary Christian folk metal band. I have heard numerous stories, lately of how wearing Christian metal apparel has led to great opportunities to share with people the rockin’ gospel of Jesus. You never know what God can do or how He will use those who go against the flow and are bold enough to show it!

Pre-order them now to make sure you get one!

Words For the War (Metal Devotional)

I must write from my heart… so stick with me…

Recently, I have been going through a lot in my life. I must say that I am very thankful to be at this point in my development as a warrior. You see, I am a flawed man. I sin and I have made many, many mistakes (sins) that I totally wish I would have never committed. After years of doing the wrong thing, I am finally striving to do the right thing. My will is growing in strength.

I may be a little obscure with what I am saying to you, but in short, the more I triumph in my life, in every situation that I am faced with, the more I experience victory. The more I experience victory, the more I want more of that freedom and power. If someone would have told me that it could be this good, to overcome habitual sin and the things that had brought me down for so many years, the fears, the temptations, the lies, the secrets, the bull crap, I would have never believed that it really is that GOOD! I love it!

I have been hooked, as of late on the 4 albums that Divinefire put out in the middle to late part of this decade. It is like praise metal with an urgent message for warriors to change and take action now. I highly suggest all of the albums! I used to have them in the shop, but they sold out because they are just that darn good. In the weeks, that I have been healing from my past, changing my future, and redirecting the path of my family, I have heard the awesome lyrics from Divinefire songs like “The Sign” from the first album “Glorify thy Name”. As you can see, the lyrics are simple, sweet, and boldly tell the truth. I cannot begin to express how great it feels to finally be serving the King of Heaven like the warrior-disciple that I should have been years ago. Thankfully, I serve the God of second chances, His grace and mercy shine upon me. He shines his face upon you as well, no matter how thick your darkness is…

Now I see the sign
The sunrise of my life
Darkness fades away
A new day has begun
Looking for the answer to the meaning of my life
It’s hard to see the future when the love is gone
The media is sending out a message to the world
It’s time to analyze it before it breaks me down
I close my eyes
I say my prayer
Dear God save me from this hell

Be set apart and be set ablaze for the King! May you find peace in the midst of storms. May you find unstoppable strength in uncertain times. Call on the bloody name of Jesus Christ! Cast aside the enemy that seeks to keep you trapped in lies, bound in anguish, and from escaping the dungeon where your sinful nature and demons want to keep you. Arise!

Employed to Serve

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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 covers from over the years

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.
