The Burial have developed and grown as a band immensely since starting in 2005. After releases on Strike First Records and Sancrosant Records, they are now signed to Facedown Records for the release of their new album Lights and Perfections.  Their third release is a dynamic, progressive metal album that is as powerful as it is convicting, both musically and lyrically. The four individuals that make up The Burial are masters of their craft and it shows. A follow up to 2010’s The WinepressLights and Perfections was recorded at Random Awesome Studios (A Plea For Purging), and will be released March 27, 2012 on Facedown Records.
“We are so grateful to be a part of the label and are stoked to hit the road with new material.” – Todd Hatfield

HM Magazine Turns 35

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.

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.
