Inner Siege is America’s answer to the European Power Metal scene and this band is poised and ready to take the metal world by storm! Hailing from Peoria Illinois, Inner Siege is proud to announce they have inked a deal with Los Angeles based Roxx Records to release their debut full length CD.

Inner Siege are proud to wear that Euro influenced Power Metal title on their sleeve citing such bands as  Firewind, Kamelot, Dream Evil and Iron Maiden as some of their influences. Be prepared because once the world hears their debut release it’s easy to see they fit right in to that mold.  Entitled ‘Kingdom of Shadows’ the bands debut is a concept album like no other, comparisons are already being made to such landmark conceptual albums as Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche. But they are no copy cats, as familiar as their sound may be this album is prepared to take the listener to a new level and on a whole new journey of the mind.

To insure their debut album hits hard and leaves an everlasting impression on the world the band has enlisted some key forces in the Power Metal community to bring this release to life. Brought in to the project to mix and master the new release was none other  than Fredrik Nordstrom of Dream Evil, who has also worked with such acts as In Flames, Opeth and Dimmu Borgir just to name a few. Also recruited to bring ‘Kingdom of Shadows’  to life through the brilliant cover artwork was multi-talented Brazilian/Potuguese graphic designer Gustavo Sazes who has done artwork for many artists through the years including the likes of such fine artists as Firewind, Kamelot, Dream Evil and even Arch Enemy.

So be prepared to enter the ‘Kingdom of Shadows’ as we unleash upon the world the debut album from… Inner Siege!

Set for release on December 11, 2012 pre-order packages are now available and going quickly!

Comrades 2020

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.

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.

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.
