It is with great pleasure HM is announcing the inaugural Music for Good Tour, featuring Silent Planet and Darkness Divided. (Dates below.)

HM was born and built on sweat and drive, as founding owner Doug Van Pelt handed out the first issue on Xerox copies, folded in half by hand on the University of Texas campus in Austin. Now, 30 years later, the Music for Good Tour aims to embody those same grassroots ideals, taking a from-the-bottom-to-the-top approach with bands and sponsors, simultaneously bringing a faith-based love for any and every one that comes to a show.

Alphaville’s Metal Renaissance

With influences that span Miles Davis and Stravinsky to Geddy Lee and Les Claypool, jazz metal force Imperial Triumphant is the epitome of genre-bending. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt spoke with the band about their unique style, the massive bass presence in their music, and the rise and fall of civilization.
