Subxero 2020

Today, HM is proud to premiere Subxero’s newest music video for “Demons,” the latest single from their release Lightwork. Lightwork is the band’s third EP.

We spoke with vocalist and founder Jason Xero about the track.

“The track ‘Demons’ addresses the constant struggle we all face in this life, whether it’s an addiction, depression, PTSD, insecurities, etc. We all have them and we all fight them. The most important tool you can have is a strong support group. It’s a necessity. Subxero exists for that reason. Strength, determination, family, unity is the motto we live by.”

The band formed in 2016, and, shortly thereafter, released their debut EP, Starseed. In 2018, they dropped a second EP, Blood In | Blood Out, after their debut full-length release Reborn.

The Jacksonville-based band exists to tell a story of “life, loss, love, pain, and the everyday struggles we, as humans, have to endure – as well as finding the strength to overcome those struggles through strength and perseverance.”

You can also find the band on ReverbNation.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
