In the Midst of Lions have just released a video for “The Machine,” a song from their recent Facedown release The Heart of Man.  You can watch it now on Facedown’s YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/facedownrecords

The video shoot was definitely difficult. There was even a situation with an alligator near Matt’s shots!  It was way too hot and humid that day, but it was great working with Drew.  The song The Machine is about money and greed and how these things can take our focus away from God and consume us.  Drew came up with the concept of the mud being a symbol of that greed and sin.  We’re very happy with the result and we’re very thankful that Drew worked with us.  
A mixture of fast-paced tech metal and grinding melodic worship, their sound can be compared to such contemporaries as Meshuggah, The Faceless, Whitechapel, and Darkest Hour.
The new album The Heart of Man was recorded with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, For Today) and is a sonically crushing metal album that definitely exceeds the band’s previous efforts on their debut.
“In The Midst of Lions have created one of the best death metal albums of 2010 so far.”

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. 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.
