Hey everyone! I am pleased to announce that I am currently working with Skot Shaw of Leper on a goth project called Pelennor Fields (http://www.facebook.com/pelennorfields) as Pelennor’s vocalist (Please go and like PF)! The position had originally been occupied by Shawn Browning of Grave Robber, but due to a busy schedule he made the decision to relinquish vocal duties to me. Thank you, Shawn! I appreciate the opportunity! ๐Ÿ™‚ However, for those of you who are wondering if I’m done with “the METAL”… absolutely not! I’m currently collaborating with a guitarist for an experimental/prog/death metal project. We haven’t come up with a name yet. We’re still looking for a bassist and a drummer, but I have posted a new song on my new page. Go to RGP Metal (http://www.facebook.com/rgpmetal), then click on the “Band Profile” button (the one with the “Play” graphic) and listen to it. It’s called “No Retreat”. It’s a VERY rough mix. It’s not finished by any means, so please keep that in mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lyrically, it’s actually a song I wrote when I was still in Broken Flesh. They have decided not to use any of the lyrics for any of the songs I wrote lyrics for, so I decided to rearrange some lyrics I wrote for BF and shape and mold it to the new stuff I’m working on. Listen to it, let me know what you think… and if you like what you hear, please “Like” RGP Metal.

Take care, and God bless!

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades โ€“ย husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil โ€“ 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.

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.
