Raviner 2020

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new single from Raviner, “Drown.” The single comes from the band’s upcoming EP, scheduled for the release at the end of February.

Raviner’s single explores turbulent life changes with a cathartic release combining aggressive guitars mixed with a cinematic synthscape. The band went through an unofficial hiatus, experimenting with different lineups, but have always featured founding member and vocalist Kamber at the center.

To support the EP release, Raviner will be heading out on tour this March with Zahna. Raviner previously released an EP, Beast, in 2017.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
