Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Water it Down” from Memphis-based inspirational hardcore act What We Do in Secret. The song comes from the band’s second EP, The Migration, produced by Fit for a King’s Bobby Lynge. Frontman Josh Adams wrote in to HM to talk about the track:

“‘Water It Down’ is about hitting bottom and feeling broken.  When you get that low and feel broken to pieces, drowning in what you’re going through, God is always there, the second you ask, to put you back together.  No matter where you have been, what you have done, or whom you have caused to sink alongside you or instead of you, the grace and mercy of God is way better and will always take you to better places.”

Jam it loud on this holiday; we know you’re not working!

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.
