Hardcore band Starve has made their debut EP, Desperate Measures, available free for download through music zine Idioteq. The band premiered an exclusive stream with HM of the song “Buzz Kill” off the EP in late September, and now you can get the whole thing for free. As the band says, the EP falls in line with their motto (“Wild, fast and loud”) and, lyrically, seeks to “deal with life’s gritty realities, and how cold pain and raw anger from worldly wickedness can lead to desperation and despair.”

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