Ryan Helm of Damien Deadson Addresses Rumors

Ryan Helm (Damien Deadson, ex-Demon Hunter and  The Ascendicate) has recently had some rumors swirling around his lyrical content and religious views. He has released the following official statement, “Normally I would not even address such petty ridiculous accusations, but this rumor has gotten so out of control that it is starting to affect me on a financial level. For the record; I, Ryan Helm am not a Satanist, and neither is my band Damien Deadson. None of the lyrical content or meaning is Satanic, or even remotely evil or even promotes evil or harm spiritually or physically. Hopefully this can put to rest any doubts, fears, and rumors of me, my band, and band mates being Satanist. Now, can we all just get back to playing metal?”

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.
