Today, HM is proud to premiere the third single, “Self Mind Dead,” from Death Therapy’s upcoming album, The Storm Before the Calm. The track features guest vocals from Project 86 vocalist Andrew Schwab; it is the first time Schwab has ever been a guest vocalist on a track.

We spoke with Death Therapy frontman Jason Wisdom about the song’s influence:

Self Mind Dead is a song about the dangers of only listening to people who agree with you. That applies no matter what point of view you are coming from. To live in an echo chamber is an intellectual death sentence and ultimately cripples a person’s character. Christians are often the worst about it, because they feel like they are spiritually obligated to block everything — and everyone — else out. It’s looked at as a virtue, but it just breeds ignorance and undercuts the power and message of the Gospel by portraying it as something that can’t stand up to outside criticism. That’s the exact opposite of how the Christian message should be presented.”

The album is scheduled for release Feb. 24. You can preorder the album now from iTunes from Solid State Records.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
