Today, HM is proud to premiere the newest lyric video for R.A.I.D’s latest track, “Soul of a Lion.” The song comes from the band’s debut album, The Strong Survive, available now from Rottweiler Records. Formed in June 2016 in Hyderabad, India, R.A.I.D. – which stands for Rueban and The Imperium Division, after vocalist Rueben Isaac – released the seven-song album in mid-July, citing influences in the realm of Madball, Terror, and Suicidal Tendencies.

Isaac spoke with HM about the track:

“This record has been an amazing journey for all of us involved, and to see it come to fruition and released is something we eagerly await. The lyric video for ‘Soul of a Lion’ is a sneak peek into our music, beliefs, and message while reminding viewers of the old-school ethics of thrash and hardcore metal.”

You can grab the album from Bandcamp.

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.
