Melodic metalcore outfit The Death in Me has partnered with HM to premiere their new song, “Dragging Chains.” As band guitarist Kyle Calisle told HM, it’s a “spiritual journey, walking through addiction.” The Raleigh, North Carolina-based wrote in to HM to talk about the message behind the track.

Our mission is to extend our sincerity, pain, shortcomings and joy to you and (hopefully) create a dialogue. We want to foster a conversation where questions, doubts and thought are not proverbially shoved under the rug and to create hope through a truly open fellowship. We believe, through our actions, we can help point you to a savior that embodies the ultimate love and truth, available to everyone.

The single will be available for download and stream everywhere tomorrow. The band’s debut EP, Dead Bones, came out in late 2013. They are currently writing for their debut full-length release.

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.

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.
