An Elegy is a death/metalcore quintet from the United Kingdom, and today HM is proud to debut the band’s first music video for their song “Ghost.” The song comes from their upcoming EP, Embrace the Rain, scheduled to be released on July 27. An Elegy has spent a year working on their material and recording the EP, and will release it independently this summer.

We spoke with the band about the song itself:

“‘Ghost’ is but an insight into the mind of our vocalist, Sam, as he expresses, through his lyrics, the struggle he faces from past experiences which haunt him. (Those experiences) have, in fact, completely shaped the person he has become today. ‘Ghost’ is a taste of what is to come from An Elegy, we have so much more to show you. This is only the beginning of Æ.”

If you dig it, you can follow them on Facebook or Twitter. Love the heavy on a Monday!


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

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.
