AOL’s Comics Alliance just posted an absolutely awesome preview to the band’s upcoming release, “Zombie EP,” and the JL Bourne-written (“Day by Day Armageddon”), limited-edition, full-fledged, 14-page comic book called “ZOMBIE, The EP Comic,” that features the band members as five combat soldiers on a perilous, top-secret mission in a world infected by Zombies.  “Zombie EP” will be released on August 24 (Ferret Music).

HM called the EP, “powerful, and as catchy as any set of metal riffs can be, with a musical uniqueness that their scene is starving for.”  Revolver cited the new music as “some of their heaviest music yet.”

If you’d like to hear the “Zombie EP,” email us back and we’ll get you a stream, or check them out on their “Back to the Roots” summer tour:

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.
