About In the Midst of Lions
The members of In the Midst of Lions united from areas across the country to create a “style that’s a little bit different than the run of the mill death metal.” A mixture of fast-paced tech metal and grinding melodic worship, their sound can be compared to such contemporaries as Meshuggah, The Faceless, Whitechapel, and Darkest Hour.
In the Midst of Lions signed to Facedown Records late in 2009 after releasing their debut album Out of Darkness on Strike First Records the previous spring. The band continues to tour heavily, a priority high on their list. After headlining the Facedown Records Young & Wreckless Tour in spring 2010, they took on the annual Scream the Prayer Tour that same summer.
The new album The Heart of Man was recorded with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, For Today) and is a sonically crushing metal album that definitely exceeds the band’s previous efforts on their debut.
The Heart of Man will be released on August 3, 2010.
