Originally formed in 1996 by front-man Chaz Bond (Jacobs Dream, Human Paradox), 9 years has passed since the release of their debut album “The Mark Bleeds Through” (2001, Rowe Productions). However, 5 years after their apparent demise, BioGenesis has reformed with their original line-up. After a few reunion shows in their local area of Dayton, Ohio, the band began working on their new album – “The Rise, The Fall, The Rebirth” – which will see a release before the end of 2010.

With a style that crosses genres, you can expect an album spanning from power metal to death metal, with a touch of progressiveness – a sound which is uniquely BioGenesis. With influences like Iced Earth, Cannibal Corpse, Fear Factory, Deliverance, Disturbed and Nevermore, and guitarist John Berry (Jacobs Dream) guesting with his signature solos, “The Rise, The Fall, The Rebirth” will see the band coming back stronger than ever!

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

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.
