Today, HM is proud to premiere the new lyric video for “Mary, Did You Know?” by Thirteen Minutes, a cover of the popular Christmas-time song originally recorded by Michael English (though covered, quite possibly, millions of times since). The band, metalheads from Tulsa, OK, formed earlier this year out of the ashes of previous musical endeavors; they plan to release their debut full-length album in 2017.

The track comes from Rottweiler Records’ Fleas Naughty Dog Vol. 4, a free Christmas compilation (track listing below). We spoke with Thirteen Minutes’ drummer Jamie Kucinski about the new track:

“I could not be more thrilled at partnering with Rottweiler Records for the inaugural Thirteen Minutes Christmas single. It’s Christmas. It’s metal. What an honor to commemorate the birth of the Savior to the outcasts by linking our music with other bands and a label for the outcasts.”

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
