Renascentia

Today, Renascentia is proud to premiere the new music video for their single “Torn” here on HM. The Salem, OR-based band will be releasing the Dead Reflections EP this month where you can find the track.

We spoke with vocalist Elijah Reiter about the song.

“‘Torn’ is a heavy-hitting song both emotionally as well as musically. The song is meant to portray the pain, anger, and sadness of giving your all to someone who takes you for granted and stabs you in the back. Inspired by real situations, we’re hoping the themes expressed throughout will resonate with listeners who may be able to relate.”

The progressive metalcore/deathcore band was formed in mid-2015 by founding guitarist Patrick Goehring and Reiter. The duo began working on music in an empty garage that would go on to become part of their first EP, Presumption of Innocence.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

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.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
