Broken Flesh recently uploaded a brand NEW song online called, “The Return”.  If you haven’t heard it yet (and even if you have), go listen to the new song on their ReverbNation page or on their Facebook page.


ROMERO is also gearing up for Cornerstone as well.  It was a last minute decision for them, so they are not booked in advance on any stage at the fest, but you can rest assured that they WILL be playing the fest MANY times on several different generator stages.  Just listen for some excellent deathcore music from a band hailing from Shawnee, OK!

Speaking of Romero, they have just released “The Awakening” – a 6-song EP that is NOW AVAILABLE from Warclub Records!  This is the debut release from the death metal/deathcore group from Shawnee, OK!  Having taken their name from world-renowned film director/producer, George Romero – famous for the cult classic and original zombie flick, “Night of the Living Dead”, they have openly admitted that they have a deep interest in God and zombies, of all things.

Their debut release, “The Awakening” (pictured above) is sure to bring the zombies to your door, to your windows, to your locked car with you in it, or busting into your basement where you hide, or anywhere else where “the living” wait in fear and trembling, as the undead will attempt to eat your… er, actually to RENEW your brain with the truth and redemptive power of the Gospel of Christ, in as brutal a way as they possibly can!

Track listing:
1. Defiance
2. Ophelia
3. Postmortem Ritual
4. La Petite Mort
5. Godless
6. Sovereign Dialogue

Romero’s “Godless” was featured on the Warclub Records “The Killing Fields” compilation.  You can find the band online at the following:

“The Awakening” is available for physical CD purchase, or for digital download.  You may also preview the entire EP at the Warclub Records mp3 store.  Album is available NOW!  Simply go to to order.  Click on the “Store” tab to order the physical cd.  Or, click on the “MP3 Store” tab to buy the digital download version of the album.

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.

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.
