Dreaded Dale

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new lyric video from Dreaded Dale for “Psalm.” The Kentucky-based metalcore band – with a touch of self-described “preachcore” – released their Wayward EP about two years ago, following it up with EP number two, Fallen-Fractured Planet, in October 2019.

Now, they’re releasing new music to the world again with spoken-word forboding track “Psalm.”

We spoke with vocalist Mikey Root about the track:

“Psalm is a spoken word metalcore track based on the 91st chapter of the book of Psalms. This chapter is crucial for every believer, especially in this season we’re facing as a country. We hope each of you enjoy it, but even more we hope you take hold of the message behind the song and that message brings you peace and blesses you!”

You can jam the band’s material over on Spotify.


Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
