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.”

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.

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.
