Dios de Dioses

An Album By


Review by

This review is specific to the extremely limited, Spanish-language release from these Mexican black metal kings, as Bombworks is set to release the full-length record later this year. Black metal missionaries Hortor deliver exactly what you expect on this release – the brutal aural assaults they’ve become known for, juxtaposed with bits of flowery finery – the classic “beauty and the beast” approach to black metal.

Special guests include A Hill to Die Upon’s Michael Cook on drums and female vocals by Xanatzin Elkanah to counterpoint Azmaveth’s shrieks and growls on the song “Mexico Tierra de Dios.” Keep an eye out for the official release of Dios de Dioses.


Employed to Serve

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

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.
